A Comparative Between Year of Wonders and the Crucible

User Description:
This was an essay that was written by me during the year. It was a practice for the topic of our SAC, which was likely to be crisis. Crisis is a key theme in the Crucible/Year of Wonders, and likely to be a topic on the exam for 2018. The essay includes quotes that can be used for future essays and in the final exam.

Josiah has no regard for human life, and according to Anna, "It was the sort of thing he was capable of doing: oath breaking - to Aphra, the entire village, even to God - would mean very little to him." Unlike John Proctor of the Crucible, Josiah acts upon his best interests and does not care for his reputation or his name, evidence that his self-preservation is what matters most to him.

While John Proctor values his reputation and 'name' in the village above his own life, Hale values human life as 'the most precious gift', with there being no reason to take it.

Sample Text:
For many, the typical response to upheaval is self-preservation, as the desire to survive is an instinctive response to those whose lives are in danger. However, the means in which the residents survive are questionable, in particular, Josiah. For others, the crises reveals the purest forms of humanity, in which the instinctive response is to help those in need. Anna, a lay woman of Eyam, steps up to a leadership position in her village by becoming the designated midwife, despite her lack of experience.
