In The Crucible by Arthur Miller, some of the characters showed courage when
the live’s of their loved ones were at risk.
One of the main character’s in the play was John Proctor. He showed courage
when his wife, Elizabeth was accused of being a witch. When John found out that it was
Abigail Williams, John’s mistress, who accused Elizabeth he said, “Fear nothing. I’ll find
Ezekial Cheever. I’ll tell

monstrous profit in it. She thinks to take my place, John.”(p.61, Elizabeth)
Elizabeth also said, “You’ll tear it free - when you come to know that I will be your only
wife, or no wife at all! She has an arrow in you yet, John Proctor, and you know it
well!”(p.62, Elizabeth) Another issue that made it difficult for John to prove Elizabeth
was innocent was that John did not attend church.
