Character Role Analysis

John Proctor

Although John Proctor doesn’t show up until halfway through the first act, it is his story of failure, guilt, and redemption that carries us through the entire plot. He is human and has failed in his marriage; it is this failure that makes him and his wife vulnerable to charges of witchcraft. But it is also his ability to forgive himself, protect his wife, and to confront Abigail, that makes this a story of personal triumph.
