Giles Corey is honorable and as integrity throughout this play. He is always trying to be reasonable and he made a joke about his wife reading books and she got accused. He doesn’t want to make the same mistake so he wont give out his source about the land. “I will not give you no name.” (Miller, 183) But now hes trying to prove her innocence. Despite him being foolish he has good intentions and wants the wives who have good reputations to be proven innocent.
