sometimes find inspiration in the most unexpected places. The
Crucible By Arthur Miller, is a dark tale about true events from
human history. Miller explores the Salem witch trials of 1962 and
builds deep characters that can be sometimes hard to understand
because we arent from that society. First a group of girls is
spotted in the woods dancing which leads the town to suspect the
Devil is present and the whole situation turns into a downward
spiral. After taking a step back from the play, an audience member
might ask themselves who in The Crucible is most inspirational.
Elizabeth Proctor stands out for her rare virtue and moral. Throughout The Crucible by Arthur Miller, characters are seen lying for attention while the only time show more content
In the courtroom, things are intensifying, Abigail and Mary Warrenare making ridiculous false accusations against John Proctor. Hale, who came to the town in order to investigate witchcraft knew that he was wrong before and that the girls have just gone mad. Before this, in act one, Hale believed that the devil was in Salem and there were witches. Interrogating Tutuba, he says, You most certainly do [have power over Betty] , and you will free her from it now! When did you compact with the Devil? (44; act one). Eventually throughout the play, he realizes he was wrong. Back in the courtroom, Hale is trying to tell the court that these accusations arent true, meanwhile Danforth wont take it. Hale goes so far as to say, I denounce these proceedings, I quit this court! (120; act three). This is respectable because he knew it was wrong and spoke up about it when no one else would. Rev. Hale is someone who inspiringly changes his outlook on the situation and does his best to do the right show more content
At the beginning of the play, Proctor believed there were witches in salem just like most other people until he realizes that they may not be real. Eventually, Proctor became victimised by the court. At the end of the play, John had two options, either to sign a false confession, or be hanged. After signing the false confession, he knew he didnt want to lie and so refused to give the signed paper over. After some arguing with Danforth, when asked why he wont hand it over, he cries out, Because it is my name! I cannot have another in my life! Because I lie and sign myself to lies! Because I am not worth the dust on the feet of them that hang! (143; act four). He then proceeds to tear up the signed paper ensuring that he will hang. The fact that Proctor had enough courage to do that is truly inspiring. John Proctor knew he isnt perfect, but still does the best he can making him seem to be the most inspirational character. All characters in The Crucible are complex, but few can be viewed as inspirational. A viewer may even look the the play to see exactly how a society should not be. That being said, Elizabeth Proctor, Reverend Hale, and John Proctor all stand out as inspirational characters. In the context of the play, John Proctor provides the greatest inspiration. He may have not been perfect, but he accepts that and lives the best
