Structure
  • Act 1: an overture of the events

  • Act 4: Isolation of the people convicted and the isolation of John Proctor – highlights the inability of the society to realise the error of judgment they have made. Highlights to the reader/audience how Proctor is to die for his moral judgement and die a martyr.
