The Crucible (end of act three, opening of act four)
Transcript of The Crucible (end of act three, opening of act four)
Watch this to remind you...
Read the opening two pages of Act Four.
To help those who were absent:
- Why was Elizabeth arrested?
- How does John try to have her released?
- Who admits that the witchcraft claims were lies?
- How does John prove that Abigail is not to be trusted?
- How does Elizabeth throw his claims into disrepute?
- Now that the girls are believed again, who do they turn on?
RE- READ this final section of Act three,
think about the following:
Miller's presentation of character
Miller's presentation of confusion and terror
The sense of inevitability that accompanies
the final few utterances.
What do you make of Herrick's behaviour? His drunkeness, his willingness to 'joke' about the devil? What does this indicate?
What is the significance of Tituba being in jail? What was she promised in Act one?
What do you make of Sarah and Tituba's behaviour? Possible interpretations? Delusion? Dark humour? True witchcraft?
If Tituba is earnest in her pleadings to the devil - what does this show?
Why is Danforth 'suspicious' of Hale?
A sense of the protagonists' strength?
Reading to p117.
How does Miller craft...
A sense of suspicion,tension and chaos about the community ?
A sense of growing fear and panic within Parris?
A sense of terror and foreboding?
A growing sense of panic in those in charge of the trials?
A contrast between Hale and Parris?
Proctor's behaviour over the last few months?
Let you not mistake your duty... I cannot think he wil listen to another.
ANALYSE THE ABOVE SPEECH (p115) FOR FEATURES OF RHETORIC
WATCH THE FOLLOWING - DO YOU AGREE?
HOW FAR DO YOU BLAME HALE?
NOW LOOK AT DANFORTH'S RESPONSE...
Good Proctor, you are not summoned here for disreputation...she should speak to him!
How powerful is this rhetoric?
Why does Elizabeth pause before agreeing do you think?
