Critical review of the crucible

Them: It is more noble to die with integrity than it is to compromise one's principle in order to live.

"Danforth: I say, will you confess yourself, Goody Nurse?"

"Rebecca: Why it is a lie, it is a lie;; how may I damn myself? I cannot, I cannot."

Arthur Miller's, The Crucible, was a play with many themes. As Rebecca shows in the above quote and Miller proves throughout the play that it is more noble to die with integrity than it is to compromise one's principle in order to live.

Body:

A. Rebecca Nurse

1. Wouldn't confess

2. Died with dignity

B. John Procter

1. Wouldn't sign a written confession

2. Died With dignity

C. Giles Cory

1. Got Pressed to death because he wouldn't confess

2. Died with Dignity

The martyrilistic leaning of the Crucibles main protagonists works to give the play a commitment to the noble sacrifice. It draws many parables that evoke the puritanical beliefs that is still present, to some extent in the modern American. The Crucible gives us a looking glass into the shaping of a facet of the modern day American Culture.
