Is there any heroes or villains in Miller's 'the Crucible

Extracts from this document...


Is there any heroes or villains in Miller's 'the Crucible?' The Crucible is set in a strict Christian village called Salem, in this village you will find a tribe called the puritans. In this village everybody seems depressed because they have really strict rules. They believe in witches and are really scared of them and are trying to kill these 'witches.' It all begins when a group of girls go dancing in the forest, this is where we first meet Abigail (she is one of the 'villains' in this play.) What is a hero? I would say a hero is someone that does something right and puts his or her life on the edge to save something they believe in however to some people a hero is a completely different thing all together. ...read more.


If there is any heroes in 'the crucible' I would say it is John Proctor because he is willing to die for what he believes in and he seems a good man and very heroic but again Reverend Parris will not agree with me because he hates Proctor and thinks he's doing right when we know he's doing wrong. Proctor is going against what Parris what Parris wants to happen and he doesn't like that. If there are any villains in the Crucible I would have to say it is Abigail Williams because she is a stereo type villain because she kills has sex and is pure evil she wants goodie Proctor dead so she can have John Proctor all to herself. She also does witch craft and she is the closest thing to a witch in that village. ...read more.


He is a hero because he does the right thing even though the odds are against him. A hero is when you do the right thing even when it's not the easiest thing to do. When Abigail says "I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you . . . I can make you wish you had never seen the sun go down!" that makes me think that she is a villain because that is a terrible thing to say. So in conclusion I believe there are heroes and villains in Salem because I think that John Proctor is a hero and Abigail is a villain. I also think that there are many points of views and that that is just my way of looking at it, other people have different opinions and there is no right or wrong answers there are just opinions.

  1. Proctor, hero or Villain?

    the entire community has now cast a black shadow upon proctor's name and his status within in the Salem society. It is know evident that proctor should be classed and stated as a villain not a hero as he clearly shows signs disrespect to the court and to the Salem society which would not be acceptable.

  2. The Crucible - summary.

    This therefore fulfills the theme of snowballing accusations that Miller established early in the play. The accusations began with Abigail Williams, but now, supported by the weight of the judiciary, the prosecution does not stop with her downfall. Contrasting considerations of self-interest lead Danforth and Parris to beg John Proctor to confess to witchcraft.
