how does arthur miller present john proctor in the crucible?

What techniques does Miller use to present the character of John Proctor in the Crucible? I have a few ideas but would really appreciate some help. My ideas are: John Proctor is presented as a flawed man and Miller draws parallels with what happens to John and how reacts to McCarthyism.

Please any ideas would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.

    The narrator actually inserts himself into the play several times to describe characters and tell us what we should think about them, such as when he tells us that Judge Hathorne is a bitter man. In addition, each inserted stage direction indicates exactly what a character is thinking or feeling.
