At the end, John Proctor had a major downfall and a tragedy that led to his death. John Proctor was a tragic hero because he was a well-respected man in the community of Salem, how he redeems himself from his downfall, and why he died. To begin with, John Proctor was a tragic hero because he was well-respected in many ways. One reason how he was well-respected was because he had a well productive farm. He was a very intelligent and hard-working man.
He won the battle not because of superior odds, but as a result of the speech that invigorated a true fighting spirit of his men. A peasant with nothing to live for and no will to fight will not perform nearly as well as a man filled with dignity and honor. King Henry made all of his comrades feel as though they weren’t anything, but dignified warriors. His speech was able to compose this great of an impact with his speech with reason that his words are backed up by his past actions. A marvelous king can rule righteously, a great king can also love and be loved by his
For example, during the Battle of Foy he took over for Lt. Dike and helped “Easy” Company win the battle. He also is extremely brave and is a risk taker during the Battle of Foy when he is sent down to cover for Lt. Dike. Specifically, when he ran through the German line to get in contact with “I” Company without fear and ran back safely which brought the soldiers morale up to fight. Moreover, he also took down a 105mm Howitzer on his own during Brecourt Manor assault. This shows that he is well knowledgeable on the battlefield and doesn’t need anyone to help company him.
Overall the theme of the The Crucible boils down to being about honesty, weakness, and courage. One example these actions being brought to life is on of page 109 when John Proctor tells Elizabeth “ My honesty is broke, Elizabeth; I am no good man”. This is quote has so much meaning because previous to this quote John had admitted to the court that he had had an affair with Abigail. By him admitting this he is putting himself in the state to be arrested for adultery, which would later lead to his death. Abigail had accused John's wife Elizabeth of being a witch in hopes that she would be hanged.
John Proctor seemed well respected in the town except he had one deadly secret sin, this being a secret affair with Abigail Williams, who was one of the leading accusers in this story. Abigail’s goal is to kill John’s wife Elizabeth so they may get married. She does this by blaming Elizabeth for witchcraft. In this time period, the ones leading the accusations had the most power due to the fear exhibited by society. Even though John was not accused he confesses his affair with Abigail to Danforth saying, “I beg you, sir, I beg you-see what she is...She thinks to dance with me on my wife’s grave...God help me, I lusted, and there is a promise in such sweat.” (Miller ).
Arthur, the king of Camelot, has become a kind of mentor for Sir Gawain. Arthur’s teachings and customs had made his knights serve him with honor. In the beginning of the medieval romance, Gawain has accepted the task from the Green Knight for Arthur and Camelot. Although he has blood ties with Arthur and has a high status among the knights at the Round Table, Gawain reveals that he is the weakest among Arthur’s knights. He accepts because he is devoted to Arthur and has great respect for him.
He did not have a good start, but his finish was beautiful. Gawaine starts out on the wrong path, but before he dies he forgives Lancelot and stands loyally with Arthur. The Once and Future King by T. H. White tells the story of how the famous King Arthur invented the peace making Round Table. Sir Gawaine was once King Arthur’s worst enemy until Arthur invited him to become one of the first knights of his might defeating Round Table. Gawaine is the head of the Orkney clan.
For instance, she says that “First my lord went out away… Then I went forth a friendless exile to seek service in my sorrow’s need” (6-10). Since she felt agony, she was seeking the attention by cheating (betraying) on her King with another man’s wooing. Although these characters express similar themes/emotions, they show it in different forms. As an example, the poem about the wife isn’t written in Anglo-Saxon, while the excerpt from Beowulf is. Anglo-Saxon is a culture that has a lot of belief in fate, treasure is their success, and where loyalty to a leader is crucial.
Guinevere fell in love with Lancelot. The two of them snuck out and did stuff. King Arthur didn't know what they were doing, but King Arthur's nephew Mordred was evil he found out about them two. King Arthur punished Guinevere to burn of death, but Lancelot saved her. Lancelot took her to France,Brittany.
The tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet are mainly the fault oh Juliet herself. Although several other factors play a role, ultimately Juliet has to take responsibility for her own actions. Her parents are unreasonable for perpetuating the feud between the families and for trying to force Juliet to marry a man she didn’t love. Romeo was immature and hot headed and got himself banished from Verona for killing Tybalt. Friar Lawrence had the brilliant idea to mix a fake poison for a thirteen year old child in order to help her lie to everyone she loved.
