Reverend Parris is convincing Judge Danforth, that John Proctor is trying to dismantle the court, but John is only there to save the lives of those on trial. Marlow wrote, “Parris is evident in the stage directions where we first see Parris encounter his niece and are directly informed that she is glamorous and a compulsive liar” (1). Marlow is saying how Reverend Parris knows Abigail is a compulsive liar, but he believes her anyway. This causes a problem because Reverend Parris then spreads the lies. When Reverend Parris realizes he is spreading lies, he keeps it to himself to protect him from his enemies.

Jewel did not want to go; it was Darl who pushed for it. We can see this through the dialogue between Darl and Jewel. Jewel can be seen as not being able to accept the fact that Addie is close to dying, he says “‘Ma aint that sick’”. Jewel can be seen as getting angry at the fact that Darl had already accepted the fact that Addie was dead and that he still cannot accept this fact. Throught the scene, Jewel’s dialogue is largely angry and directed at his family, as he says things like “‘Shut up, Darl’” and “‘Shut your
Your Honor and Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, the defendant in Edgar Allen Poe’s “The tell-Tale Heart” is insane; using the McNaughton rule it will be proven that the Caretaker should be placed in a state hospital for the criminally insane. The McNaughton rule states that one has a mental disorder or disease that compels them to commit the crime, the accused can not resist the urge to commit the crime, and that he or she did not know what he/she was doing, and the Defendant did not understand that what he/she was doing was wrong/illegal. The Caretaker should be considered insane because he is trying to convince everyone that he is sane. This is evident when he says,”Ha!-would a madman have been so wise as this” (90). This proves that he is insane because he is trying to prove that he is not insane.

When Kin Kreon decides to kill Antigone, he says she’d be more of a king than he is if she ever escaped her crimes unscathed (Sophocles line 589-591). Antigone is stubborn and claims she is better than her punishment, which proves she does not truly understand her place in society as Kreon says. As a conventional mind, one knows what they contribute to society, but the fact she committed her crimes and escaped her sentence proves she does not value Kreon’s power or rules, making her pre-conventional. In an essay about Scofflaws, the author highlights the people’s (and Antigone’s) thought processes when he says people are fools if they follow someone else’s rules (Trippett). Antigone’s thought process and personality shows in Antigone’s conversation she has with Ismene in the beginning of the book (Sophocles line 35-40).
A final example of Oedipus’s short temper is when he argues with Creon about being the killer of Laius. The argument heats up and Oedipus loses his temper and threatens to banish or kill Creon. Creon goes to Jocasta and states, “Sister, Oedipus your husband, thinks he has the right to do terrible wrongs-he has but to choose between two terrors: banishing or killing me” (Sophocles 448). Again, Oedipus must defeat those who seem to be against him even though they are not his enemy. It is his anger that causes Oedipus to lash out and act
