Mary Warren Used for Both Sides In the historical play, The Crucible, Mary Warren is used for both sides. Mary Warren is a maid for John Proctor, and becomes involved in the Salem witch hunt as one of the accusers, led by Abigail Williams. She sits on the jury, part of Abigail’s gaggle girls, and is someone who was not known till the Witch Trials.

The Crucible is a movie based on the play by Arthur Miller. It explores the consequences of lies and witchcraft during the late 1600s. During that period of time, Witchcraft was a crime punishable by death. This movie presents us with a character named Abigail. Due to Abigail’s obsession over her ex- lover John Proctor, she made up a string of lies that eventually got out of control and cost many lives, including her beloved John.
The Evil practices and sins will cast chaos in the town of Salem from one person. For the most part, Abigail Williams stirred up drama and made her move by accusing Goody Proctor and changes her behavior constantly to ruin Elizabeth’s marriage. Elizabeth points out “I am sure she does—and thinks to kill me, then to take my place. (Miller 170) The conflict of lust and obsessive nature is evident from Abigail and Elizabeth proctor knows she is in danger during the witch trials. Chaos and false accusations from Abigail corrupted everyone in Salem to
But it is a whore's vengeance, and you must see it now.” (110) Analysis of Quote: John Proctor desperately tried to expose Abigail Williams as a fraud without leaking the news of their affair. When Abigail and the girls deny Mary Warren’s testimony in order to have Elizabeth hang, John Proctor leapt up at Abigail and told the court, “She thinks to dance with me on my wife’s grave!” (110). He continued to ridicule Abigail by accusing her actions of being a whore’s vengeance. Abigail accused Elizabeth and tried to have her hang so that she could become Proctor’s wife. But while trying to achieve her one true wish, her manipulative tactics backfired with John’s confession of the affair.
When in the course of human events, man punishes innocent people based on misleading allegations, the line between justice and revenge needs to be assessed. One such event is the Salem witch trials in 1692. Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” portrays chaos created off of false indictments from the town’s young girls. After being accused of associating with the Devil and performing witchery, the young girls plot to confess that they had indeed been affiliated with the Devil, but now wish to do God’s work. In claiming to do so, they accuse several people in the town who they have grudges against in an attempt to mask their reprisal as justice.
The second witness in the trial is Lady Macbeth, she is called up by Macbeth because she is willing to lie for Macbeth (which she does in the trial), and she is a huge influence on him when making decisions. Lady Macbeth acts nervous and fake during the trial to represent her anxiety during the play, and at the end of the trial she dies from her fear like she did in the play (5.5.7). The final witness in the trial is Murderer 1, he is a surprise witness, a breakthrough, and Macduff calls him up to seal the case and take the win. In the trial he dresses and walks like a criminal and confesses to the court that Macbeth planned the murder of Banquo. All the characters dressed nicely except for Murderer 1 because this is a royal trial and is a very big deal, so I wanted it to be a formal trial.
The play “The Crucible” By Arthur Miller, takes place in Salem, Massachusetts, where witch hunts and trials took place. Many were calumny of conjuring spirits even if they were innocent because of the hatred between each others in Salem Massachusetts. There are two main female characters that are fighting for one man’s dote. They are Elizabeth Proctor, and Abigail Williams. These two women have several similarities and many differences in their personalities.
Therefore, Arthur Miller’s arguably most famous work, The Crucible, was influenced by the paranoia of communism in the 50s and his personal relationships. Those who’ve read or seen The Crucible would make the obvious assumption that the play is based on the Salem witch trials. In 1692, the Puritans in Salem Massachusetts were terrified when accusations of witchcraft began to be thrown around. Women would confess and then accuse someone else. Eventually, a total of twenty innocent people were found guilty and hanged (Popkin 140).
During the witch trials, the accused were interrogated and forced to plead guilty of witchcraft or die. Most pleaded guilty just to save their life, but they were also forced to give up the names of other “witches”. Blaming others could also direct the blame from the accused to someone else, this way the accused could escape the pain and shame of being called a witch. In Cotton Mather Biography, it is stated that, “As the trials progressed, and growing numbers of person confesses to being witches.” This portrays the on going snowball effect of blaming other people of witchcraft. This is also depicted in the McCarthy hearings, for accused communists were pressured to give up the other communists.
Jodi Arias, charged with his murder, consistently lied throughout the ordeal, changing her story three different times and demonstrating a history of deceiving people on even the smallest of details (Archer, 2014). To some, Arias came across as a manipulative psycho, while to others, she was a bit more understandable as a scorned and potentially abused lover. Because of these complications, the jury relied heavily on the expert testimony of two forensic psychologists to explain the facts behind the deception (Perrotti, 2012). Forensic psychology,
In the book Witches the Absolutely True Tale of Disaster in Salem by Rosalyn Schanzer, there was a religion, puritanism, and they believed in witches. They accused people for being aligned with the devil.It started with two girls who had symptoms of histyeria and others who were not sick also joined the. Nineteen people were wrongly accused of being witches and executed. Later in the book it stated that many of the people that accused those who died, lied. Many of those accused as witches died not just because of the accusers but, because of the unfairness of the trials.The judges of the trials used spectral evidence, ignoring the accused, and the judges were unfair because they believed in witches and want those who were witches dead.
Mary Warren has to explain what the whole spiel with the coma and dancing in the woods was about. John Proctor was the connection between that for when he forced Mary to promise on her life that the dancing was the practice of witchery and to explain it in front of the court. Throughout the story John has hell thrown at him in all directions, but somehow he stays just the brink of insanity only going above that line when Abigail lost in court. John did have an affair with Abigail which he soon confessed about in court. Abigail was trying to get John wife hung at the gallows for witchery and it was a false accusation.
In the play Abigail Williams, and Thomas Putnam’s take advantage of the pervasive fear in the village, allowing them to fulfill their selfish and exploitative motives which are what truly fuel the Salem Witch Trials. To begin with, Abigail Williams starts the accusations of witchcraft in order to fulfill her ulterior motives. We first see hints of her motives when Abigail tells John Proctor, a married man under whom she had worked that, “I am waiting’ for you every night”(1099). While Abigail worked under John and Elizabeth Proctor, she had developed feelings for John. Elizabeth removes her which angers Abigail deeply.
