In The Crucible this is shared, "These people had no ritual for the washing away of sins. It is another trait we inherited from them, and it has helped to discipline us as well as to breed hypocrisy among us"(20). Since the incentive to murder people was sin, you must consider how identifying sin should come with complete proof to declare such a statement. But as you can see, there was no proof, because with proof a ritual to heal the sin is possible. Instead the immediate response from Puritans was to execute.
Symbolism In Red Death Symbolism has taken form as an object, person, or situation that can represent a different meaning other than its literal meaning. It can be personal, emotional, physical, mental, memorable, or something with significant importance described to the reader. In many works done by Edgar Allen Poe, he expresses symbolism in his writing to let readers think about the things he included in his stories and what they mean. In the following story “Masque of The Red Death,” Poe uses symbolism with the colors of the rooms, the masquerade, the clock, and the red death to express how life leads to death. In the beginning of the story, Poe writes detailed descriptions about each room where the blue room is farthest to the east,
I express my creative side through writing such as poems, stories, and even letters. Through writing, I can use diction and syntax to express the emotions that I have or even the emotions of someone else. Once, I was assigned to create a speech as if I was a person from the town in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel, The Scarlet Letter. In this made up situation, I am in charge of the town meeting and must discuss how we are to address Hester Prynne’s sinful deed. By using diction from the puritan ages and, syntax similar to Hawthorne’s writing, I was able to become another person from another century in my writing and express the fearsome and angry feelings I had as my role.
Though some completely disregard the Law of Moses, others have thought of it as unchristian and have given the law a message of death. Moses has favorably shown a doctrine of a law that can only create death in sinners, and this doctrine should have had a better effect on people (Calvin 223). This heresy needed to be abolished or else the aim of the Mosaic Law would be distorted. The repeal of the Moral Law was mainly caused by the belief of the law as a curse. The law was believed to “condemn and destroy” sinners, but had not completed the action (Calvin 223).
Mistakes were made after Reverend Hale said,”When you were with the devil who did you see with him”(1-143.144). At this point, Abigail William is speechless, but then she starts to blame people. Also it doesn’t matter what Abigail says, because she is a witness of witchcraft, so she will save her own tail besides saving others. Reverend Hale is asking specific questions, forcing Abigail to lie. This is wrong because Reverend Hale is refueling Abigail Williams thought process with lies.
In Willa Cather’s essay she unfolds Sarah Jewett’s ability to express her feeling for writing through her diction to form art. In Sarah Jewett’s novel, her feeling for writing is shown through her main character who came to New England to write her own novel. Jewett shows the struggles she feels when writing her own novels through her character. In one of the passages she writes, “Literary employments are so vexed and uncertainties at best and and it was not until the voice of conscience sounded louder in my ears than the sea on the nearest pebble beach that I said unkind words of withdrawal to Mrs. Todd”(18). Miss.
Mary was afraid of Abigail Williams and didn’t tell the truth fearing that Abigail would hurt her. While, she developed as a character and made better choices for herself. Acts 3 and 4 she attempted to help John try to accuse Abigail Williams of lying about witchcraft in the court. “I-I promise you, Mr.Danforth, I only thought I saw them but I did not’.”(Miller 100). At that point in time Mary Warren and John Proctor both tried to prove Abigail Williams and the other girls of faking it until, act 4 when she backstabbed John Proctor and made her own claim that John Proctor was satan.”You’re the devil’s man.” (Miller 110).
Tituba confesses to have signed a deal with the devil and is seen as saved by God so then Abigail confesses to also be saved and not hung.
