Has this ever happened to you You wanted something really bad so you did every little thing so correct and so perfect and you led yourself so high and so far Yet one simple mistake caused everything you worked so hard for to disintegrate like there was no point you even tried Well this is irony and irony unfortunately usually occurs at the most unexpected andor most critical moments in life In the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller irony emerges at the worst possible time in the courts decision to choose either life or death for the main character John Proctor This major decision was based on the simple answer of Elizabeth Proctor yes meant life no meant death A likely motivation that Elizabeth went against her values and her religion by telling her first lie was because she indeed loved John after all despite of how she showed it in the past Another likely motivation for Elizabeths lie was to convince herself the court and the community of Salem that her husband is a good man and he would never have an affaire because he is satisfied with her and her being she just didnt want to accept the fact that her husband cheated on her Yet the effect of the lie has a greater value then the motivations behind the lie it was in truth a good thing that Elizabeth lied even if it resulted in the death of John because what came with the lie was the new understandings John and Elizabeth had for one another and the mutual agreement they had that they forgave each other and begged for forgiveness from one another a feeling that seemed forever lost in their limited relationship Elizabeth Proctor is a loving wife even if she didnt show it in a affectionate way and would only want the best for her husband Yet she never knew that her decision to tell her first lie
