It is not bolded, underlined, italicized, or put in all caps. The Works Cited page lists all the sources you have drawn from in your paper. For your journal papers and genre papers you will have only one source (the story or poem itself), but you still need a Works Cited page listing that one source. You will of course have a longer list for your Literary Research Essay. Works Cited entries begin at the left margin.
Hale arrives admired by the people, who all want him to claim it was witchcraft that has occurred. Although unsure, he understands he is being led toward the conclusion of witchcraft by the town’s false pretences and mass hysteria. He begins to see a weakness in the position of the townspeople of Salem and tries to not let common accusations be the support for his diagnosis. The conversations that Hale has demonstrate the evolution of his mindset. In Act II, Hale is traveling around the town, going house-to-house, searching for accused women to warn them that their names have been mentioned in the court.
When Hale first arrives in Salem, he enjoys fairly exercising the authority he is so readily bestowed with. He placed his faith in the court and believed they had only the best intentions to lessen the chaos happening in Salem. Had Hale continued with this naïve and ignorant manner, the court probably would have won out over the people. After visiting John and Elizabeth and the encounter with the poppet, Hale begins to question the court’s proceedings. When the judges attempt to accuse Proctor because he had plowed on Sunday, Hale curiously says, “Your Honor, I cannot think you may judge the man on such evidence.” He realizes the court’s methods are peculiar and not very justifiable.
The Crucible: Prompt 4 In Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible, John Proctor is a very multifaceted character. He is, as I see it, a tragic hero. He has sinned by the laws of the church that rules by a theocracy in his town, and yet also yearns until his last breath to make the decisions a good man would in order to set things right in his town. Throughout Acts I and II, John hides his past affair with Abigail Williams, a previous servant of his household. Abigail tries to get him to come back to her constantly, but John gives his love to his wife Elizabeth Proctor and shuts Abigail away.
In a way he did not condemned the act of the devil because he lied to his people and to the Heavens by not telling what he saw.” It is agreed, sir-it is agreed- we will abide by your judgment.” (Miller I pg.40). In this scene Parris is talking to Reverend Hale who is kind of a witchery expert. He is very smart and known through the towns of Salem. This is sort of a breath of fresh air for Parris because he probably believes that if Reverend Hale doesn’t detect witchery the towns’ people will not suspect that his household is the center of all the drama happening in Salem. In reality it is not fresh air at all, it is more of premonition of what is to come.
Another example is when Dimmesdale is returning home. We can see a dramatic change in his personality which was once shy and depressed to where he would, “He overcame every obstacle with a tireless activeness that surprised him” (225). Although, this change bring out the evil in him that was once hidden. When an old man had congratulated him or his accomplishments, “Dimmesdale could barely keep himself from shouting blasphemies at this excellent and gray-haired deacon” (227).When he sees a beautiful young girl he thinks to himself, “He could destroy her innocence with just one wicked look and develop her lust with only a word”
The course of enacting revenge is symbolically signified through the fervour of allegations of witchcraft, which destroys all judgment and creates a sense of belonging with the members of the community that have been involved in monstrous actions, such as killing babies and communicating with the devil. Miller, having been blamed of being a communist along with many of his friends, is critical of this hysteria. Despite some of his characters’ legitimate fear of witchcraft, the fervour surrounding their accusations leads to innocent people being accused of wrongdoing to satisfy vengeful grudges and create a sense of belonging. Abigail accuses Elizabeth of witchcraft in order to seek revenge, as Elizabeth acknowledges when she says, Abigail ‘thinks to kill me, then to take my place’. This shows Abigails desire to belong not only to proctor but also within the community, by taking Elizabeth’s position.
This scene serves as a catalyst for the remaining action of the play. Parris informs Abigail that he saw girls dancing, Tituba conjuring spells over the fire, and a naked girl running through the woods. This "unseen" scene symbolizes the suppression of desire, which is paramount in Salem. Desire, of course, has many different interpretations for both the characters within the play, and for the audience. For Abigail, desire refers to her sexual longing for Proctor.
