The Crusible was a story with a wide range of caractors. Not only appearance wise but, with different personalities a together. Many caracteurs in this play thought differently from one and other. That is why this book had a few "twists and turns" to the story. In my profiles, I will display many different caracteurs and theirs' different mentality.
First I will start with Mr. John Proctor, a.k.a. "shoulder checker". John Proctor had always things on his mind. People were always on his mind. John Proctor was always looking out for his mistakes or errors, not because he was picky, but his ennemis and competion were. John Proctor was always think out the final result of a situation, like when
Betty was "spritually repossed" early in the book (Act I, pages 6-12). John Proctor did not care about as Betty as much as the final opinion that the town would have on Proctor's "white and pure" name.
Much can be said about Proctor's giving and understanding, but I don't want to waste that line. Proctor's carring and willing to give people thinks was not his best feature.
Proctor was always thing about him, himself and no one else, except the final outcome of the whole situation. Take for exaple the fellow that wanted to get some tree off Proctor's land. Even though Proctor had probably no knowlage of the trees on his land, he still wanted a peice of the pie. Proctor wanted always money. He was money hungry and cheap.
Basicly Proctor was a would be if he could be. Proctor was always trying to fit into the high class crowd, flash his powere and money on the middle class or poorer people, but when Proctor was around people like Hale (Hale was a well educated and he stood up for things kind of guy) Proctor would try to act up to his class but he couldn't really beacause inside he really knew he couldn't.
Then the one life ending, marriage destroying fault that Proctor would ever do was he sleept with Abigail. That action right there would kill Proctor not physically (yet) but mentally threw the novel it honted him and later .. his wife. The perfect exemple was when John Proctor's wife, Elizabeth and Mr. Proctor were approched by Hale. John Proctor was asked if he could name the seven commandents (Act ][, page #65). John Proctor (with Elizabeth by his side) was able to name them all except the most crusal one, for John Proctor, Adultery. With Elizabeth knowing all the information before hand, she was totally convinced that John Proctor was indeed guilty of comitting the sin of Adultry with Abigail Williams.
I think John Proctor did change towards the end of the play because of he mood and situtation that he was in. At the end (Act ]I[) John Proctor was being excuted and he trully did love his wife. His moods and heart changed to tell Elizabeth how he really felt about her. John really did love her. John Proctor's aditude really did change form me, myself and I, to who is in need the most besides me.
The next caracteur I will talk about is Abigail Williams. Abigail was the sour apple of the bunch in this book, she really could not help it because of the it is hard to be a sweet apple when the roots and tree you came form was sour. Abigail was an orphan and all. She used her body to get things or people she wanted to.
Even though Abigail was almost an adult, by many she was still basicly treeted like a child, to be seen but not to be heerd. This was the aditude in all the town for children.
I think Abigail's most interresting feature is that she lies through thick and thin. At the end of Act ]I[ Abigail (under oth) was lying threw her teeth because he wanted to save her own butt. The point is Abigail dosn't care to whom she is lying. It could be a judge or even Proctor it really didn't make a difference to her as long as she was able to save herself.
The way some times she lies was quite entertainning. In Act ]I[, Abigail thought there was a

THE CRUCIBLE THE CRUCIBLE Although Abigail and the girls initiate the tragedy, responsibility lies with the whole Salem community. Discuss.

Crucible ProjectCrucible Project In literary works, irony is not just a sentence or a group of words; it is in fact a tool utilized by the author to indirectly enhance a character.

When the topic of a Puritanical society is brought up most people thinWhen the topic of a Puritanical society is brought up, most people think of a rigorous, conservative, highly devout society. While this may have usually been the case, this was not always so.

Two works of literature that display both aspects of this society very accurately are The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and The Crucible, by
Excessive possession of power in individuals often creates corruption Excessive possession of power in individuals often creates corruption that is harmful to their peers in addition to themselves.

For example, Adolph Hitler abused his power and tried to change the world. He sought more and more power, ultimately winding up a corrupt and very unpopular man.
