In our lives we are faced with many life altering choices many of which are based on one main subject right versus wrong or good versus bad In The Crucible by Arthur Miller a character named John Proctor is faced with a great moral dilemma Should he put his reputation on the line to save his life or tell the truth and die an honest man John Proctor is definitely a good representation of what many others had to face while being prosecuted for having ties with the devil The issues during this time period are expressed clearly behind John Proctors eyes and the way he specifically handled this situation is nothing less than heroic One way John Proctor provides a good lens on the issues apparent in this time period is that his role in the play allows us a little more insight as to how some of these girls were thinking What I mean is that he is first introduced in the play as a man who was having an affair with Abigail Williams and did not want this relationship to go on anymore It is very apparent how much John Proctor meant to Abigail Later on in the play consistent displays show just how far Abigail will go to get what she wants even if it means accusing Johns wife of witchcraft and should hang Having had this relationshipand affair with John provides something that others of the town can not see and that is her motive Because she loves John she tells him what really happened in the woods and why she and the other girls were messing around when they shouldnt have been As this relationship between these two main characters escalates from John dismissing the relationship and then to John yelling at the top of his lungs demanding Abigail forget about him the situation is raised to a higher level Being able to see just how Abigails mind thinks
