They believed the people had to be put under a curse to become a witch. Nobody knew why these young girls were acting weird but they needed an answer. These two girls could no longer be left alone by their selves without an adult or some type of guardian.

She holds most of the responsibility because she was to blame for the girls meeting with Tituba in the woods.

Lady Macbeth saved Macbeth more than once during the times Macbeth was hallucinating. Lady Macbeth told Macbeth that he is only visualizing and Macbeth should be strong and brave. The witches started the thwarting plan, but Lady Macbeth told Macbeth that Macbeth’s plans may fail, and Macbeth may not be capable of making his plan corporeal. The three witches have a master called Hecate. Hecate is a part of the plan to harm Macbeth, but Hecate wanted to harm Macbeth even worse than the three witches.
She realizes this implicitly by saying that people “would never have been aware of possible evil lurking nearby if Miss Strangeworth had not sent them a letter” (Jackson 226). She knows that she has to stave off evil and it was her “duty to keep her own town alert to it” (Jackson 226). This shows how she justifies her evil action, by claiming that she is protecting the townspeople from any evil that comes their way. Miss Strangeworth believes that if she does not write her letters to her fellow townspeople then the town will succumb to evil. Miss Strangeworth’s vision for her town is to be evil-less and the only way to accomplish this is if she writes letters to them even though the letters are hurtful and contain
Abigail Williams’ Influence Is it okay for a person to lie and hurt other people just to keep him or herself safe? In Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible, Abigail Williams lies, a lot, to keep herself safe. Throughout the story, many people are accused of witchcraft. When a person is accused of witchcraft, it is very easy for them to get out of the accusation if they lie. The lies that are told shifts the belief of who knows witchcraft, and Abigail Williams uses those lies to gain influence over other people.
The first theme apparent within Atwood’s novel is “victim blaming”, also known as “slut shaming” in most cases. The concept of blaming a victim for any form of sexual harassment or assault has always existed but more recently, it has changed to a more derogatory term, “slut shaming”. The change from victim to slut mirrors the attitudes of people who view those that have experienced any form of assault. If anything the new term truly captures how victim blaming is committed by society. It no longer views that person as a person that is harmed, it implies that they are the ones who deserved what it was that they experienced.
Innocence is featured as a concern in the Salem trials because Abigail Williams was seen as an innocent victim of witchcraft. On the other hand, she was able to use this to accuse others of witchcraft to further her own agendas. This questions the supposed innocence of members of society. Arthur Miller wrote the novel to criticize McCarthyism. Miller does this by connecting the fictionalized drama based on a real life situation to another situation,
John, pity me, Pity me!”(1099). This means she thought John loved her which led her to be angry and to start blaming people to be witches because she wants to be pitied. This point seems convincing enough for John to be blamed but Abigail is the one who makes up the fake story and admits to doing witchcraft but later on saying she was saved and started to blame the others who had nothing to do with the situation. This is why Abigail Williams is most responsible for the uncontrollable witchcraft situation in
She finishes what the witches somehow started, and she can act when Macbeth is not. The way of evil is linked from the three witches to Lady Macbeth, meaning that without the witches Lady Macbeth will not show her ambition, and vice versa. If Lady Macbeth had not acted, the witches would achieve their idea of deceiving
The second individual I interviewed is a grey solidarity witch, with two familiars and five children. As described by the informant, a grey witch is a person who “will do no harm unless it 's for protection of myself or my loved ones, or those that cannot protect themselves who ask for help.” A solidarity witch is a person who focusses their magic on healing and helping. When the informant was telling me about her practice as a solidarity witch, she emphasized that she did not practice love spells. Love spells are seen as controversial among witches because such spells may be written to control a person into falling in love with another.
If witchcraft were a problem in my town I wouldn’t do anything sketchy. I wouldn’t lie about my friends. I wouldn’t even push my friends to lie for me. Abigail should be executed due to the fact that she’s the main reason so many innocent people were executed. She started it all, she has lied and she has also had an affair.
It all started with Tituba claiming she signed the devil 's book. Them people got really worried because the bible stated witches “shall not suffer to live” that gave them reassured opinions because the people followed the bible. Then people noticed that they could get away with accusing other people that they wanted to get rid of. It was the perfect way to get rid of someone your jelous of. Then many people took advantage of the system and from there it went crazy, but I believe The main cause of witchcraft is people taking advantage of it for their own
How could one girl be responsible for the imprisonment and execution of innocent people? By lying just like Abigail Williams did so she would not get punished for what she did. All Abigail wanted to do was to save herself from getting in trouble. The only way she could save herself was to lie her way out of the situation, hurt other people, or even make her so called friends go along with her twisted lies. That is exactly what happened too.
