Daisy has suspicions of her husband’s infidelity but has not been told by Tom that she is being betrayed. “Tom had frequently been unfaithful to her, the first time within the first three months of their marriage” (Parr). “Wilson tells Tom that he suspects “something funny” about his wife, and Tom realizes that Wilson has caught on that his wife is having an affair, although he does not know the affair is with Tom” (Lathbury 7). Tom not only strains his own marriage by being unfaithful to his wife, but he puts a large strain on the Wilson’s marriage. His deceitfulness causes tension and distance between George and Myrtle
His own crucible starts when he first wonders what his wife and is reading and why she hides it from. Later in the story she gets arrested for witchcraft and Giles sort of blames himself for that. In the last part of the book Corey is questioned about who else he knows that is involved with witchcraft and if he is involved with witchcraft. The authorities try and torture the information out of him but like the quote said he did not talk he stayed mute. Giles life is put on the line between life and his faith.
Proctor presents the trait of resentful because when he tells his wife about the affair with his old servant, Abigail Williams, Elizabeth then finds it hard to trust him again. Even though, Proctor wants the best for his family and his wife, Elizabeth, he then sees how she begins questioning him and judging him about his whereas about. One day when Proctor arrives home he says to his wife “… I cannot speak but I am doubted, every moment judged for lies, as though I come into a court when I come into
People in the Crucible thought he was an honorable man and that no honorable man will ever sin. So when John and Abigail meet each other, Abigail flirts with John, and John say, “No, no, Abby. That’s done with.” So we know he has committed adultery against his wife, Elizabeth Proctor, with Abigail Williams and that gives us a bad image of John sinning and commiting adultery with Abigail and doesn’t really respect his wife. In Act 2, we see a trait of John Proctor which is not being loyal to his own wife, Elizabeth Proctor. He doesn't like the food that Elizabeth made and we see that their relationship stays faded through a conversation that demonstrates that Elizabeth doesn't trust John anymore.
Parris thinks only to protect his good reputation and keep his position as minister in the town of Salem. In the beginning of the play Parris’s daughter, Betty, was sick in her bed; instead of being worried about his daughter, Parris’s main concern was what people would think about the chance of witchcraft in his house. At the end of the play Parris expresses his
Although, Giles Corey was accused he refused to admit nor deny being a part of witchcraft resulting in a harsh punishment. An example from the play “He would not answer aye or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm.” (135) this shows Giles denied the choices to keep his land so his sons would not lose their home. Finally, through John Proctor tries to tell the truth about Abigale and the girls, Elizabeth Proctor supporting her husband choice even though they have children to raise, and Giles Corey rather be pressed than lie about being a part of witchcraft it is clear the fundamental subject is courage.
Then the judges told Elizabeth to come out and admit that her husband John Proctor had indeed committed adultery with Abigail. Because Elizabeth had no talk with John because they had been separated she lied. Elizabeth proclaimed that John was a holy man and had never committed adultery but little did she know that John was hoping that she would tell the truth. She didn't want to tell the truth about John and shame his name due to him having did what he had did. In Conclusion to the Crucible throughout the story the characters that have been named have all attempted to survive in the story some of it may have been by deceit but they all wanted to keep their name clean.
This first quotation takes place in Act 1 between Abagail Williams and John Proctor at Reverend Hale’s home. Abigail was talking to proctor about what really happened the night her and the others conjured spirits because proctor was going to get Mary warren but she wasn’t there which left them alone together. The quote takes the readers into the past to the affair Abigail had with John Proctor. John is trying to put the affair behind him although he still has feelings for her but Abigail is still very jealous of the life Elizabeth Proctor lives and she begs John to come back to her. This quote is a catalyst because it represents Abigail’s desire for John and foreshadows the length she will go to replace Elizabeth.
John Proctor’s wife is eventually accused by Abigail, because Abigail was jealous of her relationship with John. In John 's effort to save his wife, he is accused and by the end of the play he is hanged because he won’t falsely admit to being a witch. Some readers feel that John Proctor is flawed because of all the bad things he has done, he is actually honorable because he is honest.
In the play The Crucible, the character John Proctor has a conflict with himself of maintaining his reputation and not ruining his own name. To begin, in act 1 John Proctor had a conversation with Abigail where she remembered him the affair but Proctor tried to maintain a position saying “I will cut off my hand before I’ll ever reach you again”(Miller 23) and when she kept talking about Proctor’s wife, he got upset and end with a “do you looking for whippin?”(Miller 24). This shows us that Proctor doesn’t want to remember this event that could ruin his reputation or relationship with his wife. Second, in Act 2 Elizabeth told Proctor to go testify against Abigail and prove that they were lying ,Proctor just answered with a “I’ll think on it”(Miller 53) and admitting
Danforth will not accept this deposition, because he feels the deposition is an attack on the court. Some of the citizens signed a petition stating they never saw any signs that the arrested women had dealings with the devil, and Judge Danforth wasn’t happy. “... Mr. Cheever have warrants drawn for all of these arrests for examination” (Miller 1253). With this petition going around is showing that the court may be wrong, and it is showing weakness from the court. Judge Danforth will do anything to protect him and make sure no one questions the court.
Thus, through Tom, Scout, and Mr. Raymond, each one of them has felt the effect of racism. This should not affect how people view others. As in Acts 10:9-15, it talks about how Christians should view people different from us. “…Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.’ ‘Surely not, Lord!’ Peter replied.
The significance of his wife’s name is to show that there is still some faith and goodness in him left to overcome any negative influences. However, he chose to follow the negativity which affected his life drastically by having a “realistic dream” about a witch meeting where his wife, Faith was presented demonstrating how Goodman left his innocence behind for deviltry. Faith wants to motivate
Edwards says that it is “nothing of your own, nothing that you have ever done, nothing that you can do, to induce God to spare you one moment” (Edwards 43). This is another instance that he uses logos to show common sense by saying that we do not deserve God’s forgiveness, but we have received it, and the unconverted could not care less. Ethos, pathos, and logos: from ancient times and still being used now due to their relevancy and accomplishments. Jonathan Edwards uses all three of these appeals in “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” to get his point across and to persuade the unconverted to turn o Jesus Christ. When truly analyzing this sermon
Plus, Proctor’s third son is not baptized because Proctor will not “let Mr. Parris lay a hand upon my (Proctor’s) baby.” Proctor doesn’t see Parris as an honorable leader of the church, but that is clouding his participation in a religious practice, baptism. The final reason why Proctor’s religious knowledge and participation are clouded is because he believes Reverend Parris is greed because Parris was “the first minister ever did demand the deed to his house,” and he “preached nothing but golden candlesticks until he had them.” Once again, one who is Puritan needs to have faith in their religious leader, but Proctor can’t. As a result, he isn’t a devout
