11 The Proctor HouseholdEight days have passed. Things have moved on in Salem.The stage directions and dialogue establish this as a domestic setting.The talk is of planting, children and dinnerIn some ways they both seem happy:Elizabeth “blushing with pleasure”.Proctor “Lilacs is the smell of nightfall...Massachusetts is a beauty in the spring”.
12 Tension1. What do the following quotes suggest about the Proctor’s relationship?Proctor “Learn charity, woman...an everlasting funeral marches round your heart”- p.58Judgement- Proctor says that he feels that his house has become a courtroom where he is judged.Elizabeth replies that the judgement is in his heart.
13 Mary Warren2. How has Mary Warren changed since the opening of the play?Mary seems to have convinced herself that she is telling the truth.“I feel a clamp around my neck...I hear a voice, a screamin' voice”Mary has made a doll for ElizabethMary stands up to ProctorMary says that Elizabeth was mentioned but that she saved her.
14 Proctor and Elizabeth Proctor is disturbed by Mary’s report of events Elizabeth realises the seriousness: ‘She want’s me dead.’3. Who wants here dead and more importantly why?
15 Hale“there is a quality of deference, even of guilt about his manner now”4. What does this stage direction tell us about Mr Hale?Questions the Proctors about not visiting church and their son not having been baptised.Hale: “No – no, I come of my own…your wife’s name is – mentioned in the court”5. What does Miller do to show Hale’s uncertainty?Think about sentence structure and use of punctuation
16 Hale Continued Proctor criticises Parris (tone) “it tells me that a minister may pray to God without he have golden candlesticks upon the altar.”Hale makes him recite the ten commandments- Proctor forgets the one about adultery“Theology, sir, is a fortress; no crack in a fortress may be accounted small” Hale pg 65
17 Rebecca's charged!It is the charging of Rebecca Nurse that makes the Proctors realize how much things have got out of handAnd which has caused doubts in Hale's mindBut he has convinced himself the court is right: “No man may longer doubt the powers of the dark are gathered in monstrous attack upon this village”. p68
18 Accusing AbigailMiller provides various points in the play where he suggests that things might be brought under control.“I know the children's sickness had naught to do with witchcraft” p. 72Hale seems shocked but Proctor convinces him by his honesty and with flattery, “such a steadyminded minister as you”
