In Arthur Miller's The Crucible, several characters are tested with their very own crucible. One such character is John Proctor. His test has been a relatively common test: to choose between what is morally correct, or erroneous. We are told that, prior to the beginning of the drama, John Proctor and Abigail Williams, his previous house servant, had an affair behind the back of Elizabeth Proctor, John's wife. Now that the event is over, John must prove himself worthy of Elizabeth's trust and love, and have to attempt to redeem his great character and to be a great Christian. Even though there might be differing opinions about whether he or she passed didn't pass his crucible, I think he did. Through events in this drama, we could see a good-hearted guy switch for the better. In the start of the play, in Act I, we can see a small shining light of goodness despite his previous questionable activities. After John goes to Salem to see the so called bewitched Betty, Reverend Parris' daughter, then he also runs right into Abigail. Since Abigail reminds him of the previous event, John maybe may have been tempted by their present situation.
