What is the irony in the Crucible?
Another bit of irony would be found in Proctor's adultery. He loves his wife, he's extremely honorable, and he is a pillar of the community. His reputation is all important, but regardless of his pride or reputation, he puts himself at risk for a fling with a young woman.
