John Proctor is a character from the Crucible a play by Arthur Miller Throughout the play he changes from being a troubled self-exiled sinner to becoming a person of high moral standards The characters in this play are simple common people that live in the town of Salem in the year 1692 There is a rumor of witchcraft floating about in the town that has led to accusations about many of the townsfolk The accused are charged and convicted of a crime that is impossible to prove witchcraft The reasons the villains select the people they do for condemnation are both simple and clear because all of the accusers have ulterior motives such as revenge greed and covering up their own behavior The three major points I will be talking about in my essay about are as follows 1 His entrance into the play where he is talking alone to Abigail and trying to convince himself that he is not an adulterer and that they did not have an affair 2 when John is reciting the Ten Commandments 3 where John tells Elizabeth that he are going to confessIn the beginning of the play John Proctor is introduced as a farmer in his mid thirties that is not a partisan of the town and shows a very strong sense of self-preservation The first real conversation he has with another character is with Abigail Williams where Abigail is trying to make John tell her that loves her and that he will come again for her John tells Abby that their affair is over with and Abby begins to plead for Johns love and he says Abby I may think softly of you from time to time But Ill cut off my hand before Ill ever reach for you again Wipe it out of mind We never touched Abby John knows that he really did have an affair with Abby but the fact that he denied it
