English 11: The Crucible Project
This storyboard does not have a description.
"The Crucible" was set during the Salem, Massachusetts, witch trials of 1692. The author, Arthur Miller, wrote the play to warn people against mass hysteria as well as to plead for freedom and tolerance.
Rebecca Nurse is caring and insightful. She is a wise and respected member of the community.
"... I am twenty-six times a grandma, and I have seen them all through their silly seasons, and when it come on them they will run the Devil bowlegged keeping up with their mischief." (p.147)
She was worried about her reputation because people that had problems with the birth of their children blamed her for their complications and she did not want to be discredited as she was about to die.
When Mrs. Putnam spoke about her seven children that died at childbirth Rebecca wanted to leave immediately. She was ashamed and felt that her reputation was being insulted.
She was trying to gain moral power by attempting to convince Proctor to tell the truth and save themselves from damnation.
She appeared calm throughout the hysteria and ignored the judgments of the people and declared that true judgment awaits her.
