The Crucible: Reverend Hale
Transcript of The Crucible: Reverend Hale

In the play it said he was childless but he actually had 3 kids. He did change his view of the trials
when his wife was accused.
He was at the forefront of the trials
when he started.
He was an actual minister
He perceived himself as a "spiritual doctor
He took doctoral classes at Harvard University Hale is a legitimate good man that believes in the administering of justice as well as the true nature of the court.
Reverend Hale is against the idea of innocent people being wrongly accused for something they didn't do. Which explains his change of view of the corrupt situation in Salem when his wife was accused. Reverend Hale comes to Salem in response to a need. He is the "spiritual doctor" that was summoned to evaluate the crisis in Salem.
He devotes himself to his faith and his work. His good intentions and heartfelt desire to help the afflicted motivate him. Reverend Hale only wanted to do what is right, and only wanted to accuse people for the right reasons. Not to please other people by accusing them wrongly. So Reverend Hale represented the theme:
"Always do what is right." Themes of Reverend Hale 1. 2. In the play, Reverend Hale also represented a theme of confidence. In the beginning Hale was very excited to finally get a chance to show off his abilities to find witches. Then, when John Proctor was accused of witchcraft Hale's confidence vanished, and he was no longer the gritty witch hunter that he always thought he wanted to be. 3. Another theme of the play that Hale was involved with is how Hysteria is able to affect a community.
When Hale was summoned, it was so that he could diagnose the situation to see if Lucifer was actually present in Salem. When everyone started to make their own assumptions and suspect witchcraft, Hale lost respect from the people and hysteria took over the community as the girls tricked everyone into believing everything they said or did.
