In Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible, three characters John Proctor, judge Danforth, and Abigail Williams all value their reputation. These characters in The Crucible have strong feelings about how others view their overall quality or character. Unfortunately other characters in the play have to pay for there bad actions.
John Proctor will do almost anything to keep his reputation, he will lie and do everything in his power to protect it. John shows how he really values his reputation especially in the last act, act four. John was going to confess, and did, but when judge Danforth told him he was going to write his confession on a piece of paper and put it on the door of the church he would not stand for it. When Danforth asks him why he doesn't want to put it there he replies with a sudden outburst. He says " Because it is my name! Because I cannot have another in my life! I lie and sign my life to lies! How may I live without my name? I have gave you my soul; leave me my name."

He did not want to tell the people that Abigail told him it wasa lie so that he wouldn't blow his cover about his affair. Apparently his reputation means more to him than his life.
Like John Proctor, Judge Danforth lies and cheats to protect his name. Danforth signs a lot of peoples death warrants, when Proctor, Hale and the others start to tell him the real truth, you can tell he believes them and knows what he is doing . He knows he is lying, but he still goes on with what he is doing. He knows if he doesn't go on with what he is doing and says the people were all innocent and it was all the girls just playing it out, all his reputation will be soiled, and ruined. When the proctor and the others are telling him Mr. Danforth says, "you misunderstand sir; I cannot par…

Therefore for the sake Of his name,reputation and his kids, John’s decision to die is the right one. Family life and friendship is very important to John Proctor, husband and father of three, if he lived then he could not possibly raise his kids to be men in the world if their father is a sell out to his friends. He wanted to teach them that they should stand up for what they believe in and not give in to unjust courts and/ or other examples in life. By dying he taught his kids that not only he is not a ell out but he also taught them that he stood up tort what he believed in.

John Proctor is not a man known to go to church often, but he must of remember this quote from the bible: ‘No one has love greater than this that someone should surrender his soul in behalf of his friends’NH 15:13). This quote means that someone should surrender his or her soul for their friends, and by dying and standing up for what he believed in he taught his kids a valuable lesson, Proctors decision to die also solved his inner conflict with himself. This conflict is is adultery with Abigail, which really exasperated him. Because it speaks deceit and I am honest! But I’ll plead no more! See now your spirit twists around the single error of my life, and will never tear it free! ‘ (page 60). This quote made from John Proctor explains how he can not tear his guilt away from himself, and that he feels very bad for making this single big error of his life. By choosing to die John did not have to live With the guilt Of defying his Wife and God. The most important reason John Proctor decided to die is that he would not lacked his name throughout the town.

If John betrayed his friends by confessing their sins, a man of his nobility could not live through the guilt. Also John did not want to ruin his reputation as man who stands up and would die for vatu he believes in. John Proctor knew the importance of a name and how it defines someone. If John Proctor were named a sell out, then his Whole family would be instinctively named as sellouts too. John Proctor was a man with strong beliefs that if his name was blackened he would have no reason to live at all.
