She is afraid to stand up to Tom for cheating on her all the time, and is too scared to tell Tom that she actually is in love with Gatsby since high school. She comes into contact with Mr. Gatsby when Nick bring them together, and that is when she is reminded of how much she loves him. She might begin to cheat on Tom with Gatsby, but that is not stated yet. She is too much of a coward to tell Tom she is cheating on him, because if a women cheats it usually is not okay and then the man will leave the women because they have other women they could get married to. Gatsby also has lots of money and lives across the water from her.
Towards the end of The Crucible, Proctor shames himself and confesses of having affair with Abigail. Abigail denies John’s words and says “If I must answer that, I will leave and I will not come back again” (pg. 1207) because she knows that if she confesses now all the work she has put on the line will be done all for nothing, and will make her look more like a fool than she ever was. This quote indicates that Abigail Williams is a selfish antagonist because she is lying about something that is clearly noticeable. Some people may argue that Abigail isn’t the only one to blame, as in there are many others to blame for the loss of many lives.
This characterizes Blanche as manipulative, as she constantly lies about herself and the life she had lived in order to make herself appear more desirable. Living her life in illusion, she lies to everyone in New Orleans, ultimately leading

Danforth is questioning Abigail and begins to become suspicious of whether or not Abigail is telling the truth, when Abigail changes subjects to ensure that the court will side with her. It is now clear to the audience what Abigail is trying to do. Abigail lies and misleads the court to believing that there is still witchcraft around.

This is why he denies his fondness of Abigail after his wife forced her out of their home. At the time he could not contain himself and made the decision to disregard his morals, wife and laws for the time being. The second sign of corruption within the society occurs when Mary Warren turns on Proctor and lies about the witchcraft being true. In fear of her life, Mary says, “My name, he wants my name. ‘ I’ll murder you,’ he says… I love God, I bless God… Abby, I’ll never hurt you more” (Miller 119).
Sammy still had a shot at life. Both Sammy and the doctor had their eyes set on a particular woman that made them test their will power and caused them to miss out on certain opportunities and in the end, none of them ended up with the girl that they wanted. The doctor started off doing what was right but he was blinded by “the princess’s great beauty and the happy prospect of becoming her husband so infatuated him that he flung all caution to the wind” (Grimm 13). Sammy started off being miserable until he saw Queenie, but he and the doctor share a common flaw. They both just cannot resist the power of women.
She is very selfish and doesn’t seem to care about other peoples’ feelings. She makes Gatsby believe that she loves him and that she is going to run away with him and she makes her own husband think that she never loved him. She is lying to both the men in her life because if she truly loved Gatsby she would have called him in the end and yet she didn’t. This is also evident in Daisy’s affair with Gatbsy because she betrays her husband Tom and lies to Gatsby (Jacqueline Lance, 2000). “I did love him once-but I loved you too” (107).
From the beginning Stanley has doubted Blanche, this is seen as he went through Blanche's things with Stella, questioning her belongings, “has she got this stuff out of teacher's pay?”(2.33). Stanley continues to impose his reality onto Blanche, which causes her more anxiety relying more and more on herself to create more of an illusion by creating an admirer for herself, saying that she ended it with Mitch because she does not deserve “deliberate cruelty”, and crating this alter ego for herself as being pure. While Stella is in the hospital, he and Blanche are left alone for the night as she continues bragging about her admiration coming from Sheep Hunt Leigh and how she just got a wire from him. Stanley catches her in her life, finally tearing apart Blanche's illusions. Although Stanley has been a threat to her through his suspicion and empowering masculinity over her, the last scene is where he finally takes final control over her, or symbolically where reality has a final triumph over her illusions.
This later caused him to drive himself into full-fledged insanity, he becomes obsessed with the idea of a perfect woman and he denies any possible truth that goes against his ideas. The idea of living in Gallimard’s perfect dream blurs out reality and any stereotypes society follows. He makes them seem un-important and acts as if it doesn’t apply to their relationship. The idea of fantasy and reality destroys Gallimard’s life; it also changes his perspective of other stereotypes and destructive
