The author sets the stage perfectly by giving readers a hint of the intricate plot of The Crucible and how Proctor’s flawed character is intertwined in the story. While he is not a content man on the inside, he presents himself in an utterly different way. Everyone respects Proctor and recognizes him as someone not to be messed with. He is “respected and even feared in Salem” (19). However, some resent him for his bluntly honest personality.
His argument is very reasoning to his defence and he eats so many reason to why the work works in its evil ways of discrimination. He wants everyone to that, it's very easy to not be very discriminated by the way you look but the way your skin color. Mr. King is very descriptive of his words and his meaning for them. He can really make the world change if everyone really did follow. King's reason for the speech is because he is trying to make a difference, he is a very good well taught speaker and he speaks with so much enthusiasm and nothing could really stop him from anything he's
He has made the right, honourable choice. Throughout the play we’ve pursued Proctors journey from his arrogant nature at the beginning to someone we not necessarily have sympathy for however at least empathise with his situation. Miller’s message about McCarthyism is extremely apparent throughout The Crucible about it being just as preposterous as the Salem witch trials in 1692. Proctor can be read in numerous ways from a tragic hero’s journey to a rude awakening into morality, but what is important is the meandering passage he took which lead to him redemption in the audiences eyes.

You get the impression that the character of John Proctor was based on the real life character of Miller. When John Proctor is first introduced in the play there is a paragraph describing him, and reading this you learn a lot about his character, what others think about him, what he thinks of himself, and how he acts towards people. ‘He was the kind of man – powerful of body, even tempered and not easily led.’ This quote is very straightforward and you understand that he is fair-minded. After this quote you think he sounds like a good man and a rule-follower; however you then get to the line ‘ he’s a sinner, a sinner not only against the moral fashion of the time but against his own vision of decent conduct’. This is the point where you start to think; what could he have done to become a sinner?
Clare Kelly Hour: 6 “The test of a round character is whether it is capable of surprising in a convincing way. If it never surprises, it is flat. If it does not convince, it is a flat pretending to be round.” -E.M. Forster Benvolio initially appears to be a minor character in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. As Romeo’s trustworthy cousin he is the consistent anchor and voice of reason throughout the play. Benvolio is portrayed as an honest, steadfast friend and peacemaker yet he has his own heartaches, which cause him to not always act sensibly.
(85) This foreshadows how Proctor will be sentenced, because although he is known as a good man in the town's people eyes, yet Danforth can only see his guilt and his unfaithfullnes to christianity. He believes in honour, respect and recognition. The court in essence is just a human construct but Danforth places great pride on these human constructs and of doing things for show, which could illustrate his stubbornness when passing judgment. Danforth fails to realize the hysterical conclusions presented to him in the courtroom. Danforth realizes it may be too late to go back on his decisions “I cannot pardon these when twelve have already hanged for the same crime.
At this point, it is obvious to see that Orgon has a lot of respect for Tartuffe, although others may think differently. Cleante, Orgon's brother in law, is shown as the voice of reason and questions Orgon by saying, "There's a vast difference, so it seems to me, between true piety and hypocrisy: How do you fail to see it, may I ask? Is not a face quite different from a mask? Cannot sincerity and cunning art, reality an... ... middle of paper ... ...ot the others. Although Orgon was stubborn to his family and gullible to Tartuffe, Orgon was able to see the actions and hear the words himself.
Reputation and honor are two different things. They often are the difference between appearance and reality. Reputation is other people's opinions of you, while honor is a high respect. In the play, Othello, a character named Iago has a great reputation; however, he has no real honor. He is able to manipulate and shame other people without hurting his own reputation.
For this, Antigone is seen as an honorable character and the hero of the play. It is shown that there are often two sides to things; pride can be both a source of strength and self-destruction. Creon has just become the king of Thebes and is letting his great power go to his head. He is deaf to reason and even accuses those who try to change his mind of “selling their soul for silver”. Creon believes in order to uphold peace and order, the laws set by the ruler must be obeyed when he says “Anarchy, anarchy!
Despite the overwhelming evidence against his own misperceptions, Stevens emerges as a somewhat compassionate character. [Wong, 2000] Do you agree with this assessment of Ishiguro's representation of Stevens? Stevens is riddled with misperceptions about his work, his relationship with Miss Kenton and Lord Darlington. During the course of the novel, the reader is shown - not through what he tells us, but by what he doesn't - the truth behind them, and just how wrong he is. Stevens also realises the reality of his beliefs and his situation, but long after the reader.
