The Crucible Character Analysis In The Crucible by Arthur Miller, John Proctor, the protagonist, is a farmer in his middle thirties. The author gives little to no detailed physical description of him, but from Proctor’s speech, we can still picture him as a strong and powerful man who is able to keep every situation under the control, the kind of personality which earns him deep respect and even fear from the people in town. On the other hand, Abigail Williams, the antagonist, plays an inferior role as an orphan who has no social status in a place like Salem. Over the course of the play, John Proctor is absolutely awakened and transformed by Abigail Williams. In the end, he overcomes the crucible by releasing himself from his guilt of adultery and becomes a true tragic hero. John Proctor is an honest, intelligent and righteous man. Unlike many in Salem, Proctor is not afraid of the Church's authoritarianism, because he does not see the true value of it. Hence, he speaks his heart — “I like not the smell of this ‘authority’” (Pg. 181). When he is asked by Hale how come he does not baptize his youngest son, his honesty is again displayed. He responds that he sees “no light of God in that man” (Pg. 199). From the story, we can also see that proctor is a man with a extraordinary intelligence. He has the ability to feel foolishness instantly when in a presence with a fool. He is also one of the few people in Salem who recognize the witch trial as a mischief from the beginning.
