When Reverend John Hale is requested to come to Salem from Beverley, because of his expertise on witchcraft, he came with confidence and solid beliefs of his profession on witchcraft. Bestowed on Reverend Hale is the responsibility of justice. When he first appears in the bedroom of Betty Parris, he seems strong and devoted of his opinions and his work. In addition, Reverend Hale is respected and trusted by the whole town, he is filled with authority and esteem. Because other people trust Reverend Hale, he cannot have any doubts of the existence of witchcraft, and also his accuracy. Just like the people of Salem, Reverend Hale's disillusionment soon turns him into paranoia of witchcraft. The idea of witchcraft is an abstract idea. Because of the intangibility of visible evidence, the possession and practice of witchcraft cannot be proven. Therefore, Reverend Hale has to use his personal observations as his only judgment. However, the flaw of personal judgment is that anything can be interpreted differently. Especially when Reverend Hale is obsessed with witchcraft, his mind is twisted of its logical thinking. Reverend Hale's authority and obsession disillusions his way of thinking and thus he interprets that everything associates with witchcraft.

Imagine your mistake kills tens of innocent lives, but it's too late to alter the tragedy. This is the suffering Reverend John Hale reminisces through. In Arthur Miller's 1952 satirical play, The Crucible, this Puritan community is filled with paranoia and hysteria regarding witchcraft and the fear of correspondence with the devil. Because of this, many people were accused of witchcraft and hanged. Hale arrives in Salem as a specialist of witchcraft, and hopes rid the town of evil. However, Reverend Hale discovers corruption within the society and the death of innocence. Reverend Hale changed drastically throughout the play as he is disillusioned by power, comes to a realization to the truth of the victims, and experiences the destruction of his belief in Puritan justice.

Reverend John Hale of Beverly | History of Massachusetts

Within my expository essay I have chosen to focus on elements of Arthur Millers, ‘The Crucible’, which Illustrates the notion that fear creates various and diverse responses in people. My essay revolves around characters who exhibit signs of attack in the face of conflict, and conversly those who retreat. I have also drawn on the documentry about the Tank Man to explore further the way in which people will react when faced with conflict. Considering my audience, teens and young adults, I have chosen to write in a formal manner, although I will tone it down to appeal more to their language and to retain their attention. Fear is defined as an emotional response to a percieved threat; it is a survival mechanism, and, depending on the person, it determines how we react when we are faced with such confrontations. Arthur Miller presents us with many examples of the different aspects of fear triggered reactions present in the small, once peacful town of Salem. To retreat is just the first of the three reactions that will be discussed. This trait is displayed through Reverand John Hale, a minister who specalises in the detection of witchcraft, with his presence in Salem setting the hysteria in motion, though he soon recognises his folly and hastily decamps. To attack is the second reaction, and there is no finer example than the one brave man who, despite adversity and slaughter of his peers, made a bold statment that arguably changed the course of history. A more erratic character can show signs of both these traits, just like the easily swayed Mary Warren who both attacks and retreats in fear of Abigails wrath.
