Hypocracy: Examing three characters.In this novel, hypocrisy was referenced lot in this story of "The Crucible". All of the characters that had integrity also acted hypocritically, like John Proctor, Rev. Hale, and Elizabeth Proctor. For example, Reverend Hale claimed to have integrity, but at was very hypocritical. He was in Salem to see if there was any witchcraft in Salem and he had witnessed the girls confessing. However, more toward the end, he was quick to defend John Proctor when he was claiming that the girls were feuds and everyone of them are telling lies about witches.
