English - Ambition

Ambition

_The Crucible_ can also be thought of as an exploration of ambition:

*

Abigail has the perverted ambition to kill Elizabeth Proctor and take her
place.
*

Hale comes to Salem with the ambition of saving Salem from the Devil.
*

Putnam's ambition relates to the acquisition of land. The judges' ambition
prevents them from calling an end to the proceedings.
*

Proctor's ambition is the noble one to restore his good name and sense of
personal integrity.

Miller is concerned with depicting what can happen when an individual's
ambition becomes thwarted.
