The character I am assigned to be in the play/book we are reading(The Crucible)is John Proctor and as a short description of this man is that he is very resentful of the fact that so many people are going hysterical over the idea of the "devil" being in Salem and people being accused of witchcraft. John is asked to recite his ten commandments as he claims to be a good christian but he falters and is able to recite all but 1: Thou shalt not be adulterous, which is the crime he has committed.

Do Something Crazy!!

In our new book, called The Crucible which is about the witch trials in Salem Massachusetts we have to pick out words we like and the word i have chosen for this post is "Hysterical" this ward means to be disorderly and going "crazy". To me this word can mean one of two things; Either somethings funny, or totally out of order. There is a little bit of both in this book, where it is a little funny that so many people were accused of witchcraft just for owning large sums of land, and the other reasoning is that after the accusations start everything goes down the drain.
