The hero’s downfall is a result of their choices which leads to a punishment that exceeds the crime. “The difference between Proctor and Willy Loman is enormous; the former is the rather typical tragic hero who is defiant to the end, the latter is trapped in submission and is living a lie” (McGill 4). John Proctor is one of the main characters in The Crucible. he is married to Elizabeth Proctor and they live in Salem.
In 1692, abounding settlers in Salem, Massachusetts initiated alleged victims of performing witchcraft, not only the accusers accomplished of having many people imprisoned but the community executed those pure, innocent crowd as well.

From a high schooler perspective, I believe John Proctor, one of the victims to be killed, should be the embodiment of the memorial statue. John Proctor has demonstrated countless heroism throughout the witch trials whereas no soul could correlate his bravery of how he managed to act around three centuries ago.
