Act 4 In the crucible there has been a character and or characters that were afraid to admit they were wrong. In certain situations I have gone through the same situation before, so I can relate to that. First, with the crucible, Rev. John Hale would be afraid to admit that he was wrong. John Hale is a witch expert from Beverly, he comes to Salem to check out what is going on as far as witchcraft. He thinks he knows everything and is very arrogant about it. He has not seen anything like this before. Things are happening in Salem such as people going into a coma, and people going against each other.
Sunday after church, James tossed the car key to Henry and told him to drive Mother and me home. Henry’s eyes beamed. He’d been able to drive for a while, but Daddy had never let him use the car, and James had done all the driving since Daddy passed. Henry had complained often, but James would shake his head and tell him he wasn’t ready. I wondered what had suddenly changed.
Act 5 Elizabeth sits by the window. Her chair is turned away from the rising sun. She sits still. Reverend Hale enters. Hale: Why Goody Proctor, are you unwell? Elizabeth: Perhaps. I haven’t the strength to have a proper diagnosis. Hale: I’ll make some tea. Hale scurries out. Elizabeth: It’s quite alright, Elizabeth whispers. She looks, up
Act III of The Crucible should be underlined marks the main issues developed that lead to the character’s demise. The people are gathered in court, disputing innocence or guiltiness. The accused are to suffer unjust fates although they are innocent and virtuous. Many factors affect the outcome of Salem’s future, but struggles for power and ego shown by Deputy Governor Danforth and Parris cause injustice to prevail.
The carriage clattered over the rough road, and there were moments when Abigail felt the conveyance tilt upon its wheels, sending her toward the side with her mother's scant weight pressing upon her in grim reminder of how little the frail, ill woman could withstand the rigors of such a journey. Her fingers in Abigail's hand were cold, hardly more than winter twigs. She could feel the fear inside with them, an invisible fog that sapped heat and set her teeth to chattering, despite the warmth of the air.
6. Plot summary “The Crucible” is a play that takes place in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. The play starts in the woods, the characters Abigail, Betty, Tituba, Mary Warren, and Mercy Lewis were casting spells in the forest. Samuel Parris catches them in the woods and Betty passes out. They go to the Proctors house to make sure Betty is okay. Parris is contemplating on what the town will think of him when they find out what has happened. He tells Abigail to tell him what happened in the woods. Abigail tells him they were dancing.
In Act II, we see quite a bit going on, and it seems to be the climax of the story. We see Torvald belittle women once again when he says " is it to get about now that the new manager has changed his mind at his wife's bidding." We learn that Torvald expedited Krogstad's dismissal, and thus we see Nora acting really out of sorts as she tries harder and harder to maker sure Torvald never learns her secret- even going as far as to pretend she has no clue how to do the Tarantella to stop Torvald from reading the letter that Krogstad left. Finally, the Act leaves us with Nora stating "Thirty-One" hours to live- so us as readers are left wanting to know- is she going to commit suicide? Will Krogstad kill her? Or is it hypothetical- that she believes
Miller made the right decision in removing Act 2 Scene 2 as it would have distracted the reader from the larger purpose of power and hysteria in the play and have instead introduced a new conflict of genuine insanity. In the deleted scene, a different side of Abigail is shown, one that is delusional and seems to care for Proctor. In a wishfully disturbing manner, Abigail promises to Proctor that, “I will make you such a wife when the world is white again… From yourself I will save you”, and repeatedly states her belief that her purpose was to “scrub the world clean” of all the hypocrites and eventually be rewarded with Proctor as a husband. This caring and desperate side of Abigail contradicts the selfish and manipulative persona that is seen

Reading Response 2 During Act 2, many occurrences happened. One in particular took my attention with a bit more force than some of the other content. According to the text, “… But not Sarah Good. For Sarah Good confessed, y’see. I hear a voice, a screamin’ voice, and it were my voice-and at all at once I remembered everything she done to me” (Miller 60)! This quote shows that this woman, Sarah Good, did something to Mary Warren that made her traumatized and afraid. According to the text, “… ‘Sarah Good,’ says he, ‘what curse did you mumble that this girl must fall sick after turning you away’” (Miller 61)? This quote demonstrates the acts Sarah did to Mary. I connected to this scene by remembering an old show that recently aired called Merlin.
Act 3 takes place in the church, which had been turned into a courtroom for the witch trials. Mary testified that they were only pretending to be afflicted by the witchcraft. Proctor was questioned about his religious beliefs. Judge Danforth arrested Giles for not giving him the name of the man who gave him information on the witchcraft, because he didn’t want to give away Putnam. Abigail was then sent on trial, and denied Mary’s testimony. The girls accused Mary of bewitching them with a cold wind and that she was responsible of the witchcraft. When Abigail accused Mary, Proctor called Abigail a whore and confessed his affair with her. He explained that Elizabeth fired her when she discovered it. He claimed that Abigail wanted Elizabeth to

The play The Crucible, was written by Arthur Miller in 1953. It is a story he wrote after his own experience being accused of communism. This affected a lot of well-known people in the United States during this time, and was considered a witch hunt similar to the Salem witch hunts. Arthur Miller wrote The Crucible about a man, John Proctor, who has an affair with Abigail Williams. She catches feelings for him and tries to cast a spell on John Proctor’s wife to kill her; this gets out of hand when Abigail’s uncle catches her and some other girls dancing during the spell in the woods. Suddenly, the whole town is living in fear of who is practicing witchcraft, who could be a witch, and innocent people are killed if they don’t confess to being witches. Overall, mass fear and panic, and false accusations are seen over and over throughout the play.
