When the men were hung, Mr. Davies thought he had failed at his responsibility and was a poor leader. Mr. Tetley believed the three men were guilty and he convinced most of the people to believe they were guilty. Mr. Davies has a very strong argument but I, personally, cannot agree with it. He did the most he could to protect their lives. If he had shared Martin’s letter to his wife, the men would not have been hung, but Martin asked Mr. Davies to keep the letter private and he respected Martin’s request.
Abigail Williams is Reverend Parris’ teenage niece and the play’s antagonist. Abigail was previously the maid for the Proctor house, fired by Elizabeth Proctor after her discovery of Abigail’s affair wither husband, John. She accuses many of witchcraft, starting first with the communities’ outcast and gradually moving up to respected members of the community. Finally, she accuses Elizabeth Proctor, believing the John truly loves her and not Elizabeth. Abigail wants Elizabeth out of the way so that she and John can get together.
He had a chance to tell the town, and the court, that Abigail’s claims were false. Nevertheless, Proctor did not open his mouth. He feared that revealing the truth would put him down on the social ladder; innocent people had to pay, for his flaw, with their life. Proctor was a proud man who values his good name. He would do anything to keep his name.
John told Judge Danforth and the other residing judges about his act of adultery with Abigail. They brought in John’s wife, Elizabeth, and she denied that John had committed adultery. Therefore, no one to believed John (Miller 1309-11). John is not punished for committing adultery, but he is hung for supposedly committing witchcraft
He would have slept with Berkilak’s wife if he hadn’t been following his chivalrous code, and wouldn’t have been able to learn his final lesson from the Green Knight in doing so. Though Sir Gawain is the definition of chivalrous, he also comes with his humanistic flaws. He wants to continue living, and though he isn’t corrupted by sex and folly, he is corrupted by the girdle to keep his life intact, which allows the Green Knight to show Sir Gawain that he needs to accept that he isn’t perfect. Sir Gawain feels extreme remorse for his ‘sinful’
Also Hester’s name was known thru the town to have committed adultery. John didn’t want people to think badly of him or his good name. This shows the differences between the two. No matter how different, John and Hester both fought for the same things. Even though they committed a sin, they took responsibility for their actions.
Elizabeth breaks the news to John that Abigail, the woman (or more teenager) that John had sex with, is telling people all over town that certain members of society are witches. Elizabeth hears from one of the accused that Abigail is to blame which sparks anger in John. Even though John tries to tell Elizabeth of Abigail's good nature, Elizabeth believes that Abigail is to blame solely because she committed adultery with her (Elizabeth's) husband. "My Wife will never die for me!...that goodness will not die for me," (38)! John soon comes to the conclusion that Elizabeth doesn't care about him since Elizabeth doesn't care about Abigail.
A doctor does not have the right to do this because he or she is not God and should not ‘play God’. This is why euthanasia is opposed. Followers of Natural Law would argue that euthanasia, with regards to the quality of life, might end a person’s suffering which was causing them to have poor quality life, but it does not consider that a person could have gotten better if they were not euthanized and their quality of life could have improved. This is why a follower would object to euthanasia. The case study of Dr Nigel Cox can be used.
He doesn’t treat justice the same as revenge, like some other characters do (for example how Lear wanted to hang Regan and Goneril for how they treated him). Instead, he sees justice as the truth coming out, everyone knowing he did nothing wrong, and everyone knowing what Edmund did. He also wants the same type of justice for his father; which, shows that he is selfless and has respect for his father. Instead of hurting Gloucester worse, and getting revenge for Gloucester’s mistake, when he sees that Gloucester cannot see, he helps him. This is how he serves as the foil for Edmund.
There are a couple reasons why people should think that “ The Catcher in the Rye” is a moral book. Despite what the critics say, Holden is also a moral character excluding all the profanity he uses and how he acts. One reason that Holden is a moral character is because he respects those who are humble, loyal and kind. He might lie a lot, but all he is doing is trying to protect someone else’s feelings. One example is when Holden hired a prostitute, all he wanted to do was to talk, but he is troubled by how young Sunny is and worries about her.
