A theme for The Crucible is Jealousy. Abigail is so jealous of Elizabeth Proctor, and all she wants is to be with John. Abigail was in love with John, and John showed no emotion or love back towards her. SHe told him she loved him towards the middle of the play and he responded blankly and with no emotion. He did not feel the same way about Abigal.
This is hysteria!!
An example of characterization is Reverand Hale. Hale is very courageous and it the spiritual doctor to Salem. Hale is very important in the play and is a big part of the Witchcraft scandal.
An example of dramatic irony, or where the audience knows something that the character doesn't, was when Elizabeth lied to protect John after John already confessed. This was a crucial point in the play because it proved that Elizabeth was lying.
I'm not confessing, i didn't do anything.
Another example of theme in The Crucible is Hysteria. Hysteria caused so much drama and overall chaos in Salem. Hysteria was everywhere in the town, and it was a major key in the way things eventually turned out.
Oh no!this is awful!!!
Another example of Characterization in The Crucible is John Proctor. John is a key character in the play, and is very crucial to the finale of the entire witchcraft mess. John did not confess and in turn was hung for it. John was innocent and did not deserve to die, but he didn't confess.
Another example of dramatic irony is when the crowd knew that John was innocent and yet the courts were prosecuting him and ended up killing him. This is horrible and John didn't deserve to die.
