The Crucible

Extracts from this document...


English Coursework: The Crucible Dear John, Before you discard this letter in disgust, hear what I have to say. It may benefit you, and all those near you greatly. You have but one week to make up your mind about this matter and tell court that you did indeed sign in Lucifer's book. To spend your last days in a cell would not befit a man of your standing among the community. Help them see that the court is not here to harm them, but here to help them. ...read more.

  2. Worlds Apart: Orientalism, Antifeminism, and Heresy in Chaucer's Man of Law's Tale

    Significantly (and accurately, according to canon law), Trevet considers his Saracens to be pagans, unbaptized non-believers, rather than heretics--unambiguous outlaws rather than outlaws posing as inlaws. As the Chaucerian narrative continues, however, so does its emphasis upon the commonalities between Syrians and Romans, culminating in the voluntary and altogether effortless conversion of the former to the latter's faith.
