Character error 

John Proctor uses the scythe incorrectly. A scythe is drawn right to left in an arc parallel to the ground. The stroke requires neither great physical strength or blade speed. However, Proctor, with much effort, uses a golf-like motion which rips what grass the blade makes contact with and arcs way over his head. The scythe is never lifted in either the draw or the return.
