That is until Mary caves under the pressure and accuses John Proctor of being the Devil 's man, so nothing bad occurs due to Abigail. In addition, Abigail tells lies, manipulates her friends and the entire town, and eventually sends nineteen innocent people to their deaths. Throughout all of the hysteria, Abigail’s motivations are based off of a simple jealousy and a desire to have revenge on Elizabeth Proctor. There are a few background
Proctor realized the truth behind everything and decided it was time to come forward and tell Danforth, “She thinks to dance with me on my wife's grave! And well she might, for I thought of her softly. God help me, I lusted, and there is a promise in such sweat. But it is a whore's vengeance, and you must see it now” (Miller ). John tries to reveal who Abigail really is but it does not help the lives of those who are to be hanged.
The actress acting Abigail proved how Abigail again proved her self innocent “ this act shouldn’t make you look down on me because this proves how much I love you and that’s the difference between me and Elizabeth that she didn’t show any feelings when me and you had an affair she didn’t do anything. I can’t stand seeing you with her but she doesn’t have any problems” this is how Abigail sneaky plan goes she turns and twist words around until it seems like she is innocent she has the capacity to say real life event that had happened that when you look at a certain perspective as a reader you feel she is innocent the actress presenting it really gave us the true message of Abigail’s character because she used words and she twisted them around too prove her innocence which is one of the main characteristics Abigail
One could easily say Abigail was the one to blame for the hysteria in Salem during the witchcraft trials, but there is someone who was as much to blame as her. Tituba is to blame for the Salem witchcraft. “To Tituba! What may Tituba-? Tituba knows how to speak to the dead, Mr. Parris” (page 1095).
In the novel “The crucible” representation of a disturbing and powerful play based on a true event has been shown clearly by the author Arthur Miller. The main objective that the author tries to show from that drama is how feeble the human beings can be and how gluttony of personal gain can become dangerous in the current society. During the early times of 1600’s, people believed that if you did not go to church each week to adore God, then it was obvious that you were worshipping the devil. But according to the play, accusations of witchcraft or devil worshipping began with a group of girls who were held dancing in the forests. This was an illegal act according to the rules of theocracy in the town of Salem.
In "Half-Hanged Mary" , Mary was accused for witchcraft with no evidence at all she along with many others. "Having been hanged for something I never said" (Atwood Later). Mary lost her sanity, she does not feel like it is fair. Mary becomes in power for the reason she can not be hanged for not reason. In The Crucible , Abigail proclaims to Reverend Parris, "My name is good in the village!
She claims she is just an innocent teenager. However, as the story unfolds, Abigail is truly a despicable character and is ultimately responsible for a number of murders, trials against the innocent and eventually crosses the boundary of outright evil. In the beginning, Abigail Williams, a former house servant to the Proctor household, begins her villainous behavior after being kicked out of the Proctor home as she was accused of having an affair with John Proctor. She takes refuge with the Reverend Parris, Betty and Tituba.
What of the claim that she is all but free from claim of evil. Well, why would she have hid a needle to frame Elizabeth, or that she cried out names of random names of citizens to damn them to deaths at the gallows. She lied, manipulated, and blackmailed her way to innocence, and even got away with all of her uncle’s money. Even though she was singlehandedly the worst party in this situation.
Macbeth believe and fall for the witches which made him think that no one can harm him. "I bear a charmed life, which must not yield and to one of woman born" (5.8.12-13). As Macbeth and Macduff are fighting each other, Macbeth tells him to leave, for he does not want the blood of another Macduff on his hands. Macduff refuses and charges at Macbeth. Macduff reveals that he was not woman of born, but from his mother's womb.
Once Macbeth murders Duncan he immediately tenses and panics, but Lady Macbeth steps up and calms him down: “Give me the daggers, The sleeping and the dead/ Are but as pictures; tis the eye of childhood/ That fears a painted devil.” (II.II.56-58). The use of “devil” in the passage, gives off a dark and evil connotation just like murdering Duncan. Even right after the death of Duncan she still shows no remorse for contributing.
Anybody who goes with her and chooses to defend her is lucidly non compos mentis. I am innocent, I have done absolutely nothing wrong. Medea is deranged. She should be punished for her wrong actions.
She once said "She hates me uncle, she must, for I would not be her slave. It 's a bitter woman, a lying, cold, sniveling woman, and I will not work for such a woman!" (Miller, Act 1, 12). Consequently, she feared discovery of her transgressions, dancing in the woods, wishing Goody Proctor dead, and drinking the blood. Elizabeth Proctor wanted to regain Proctors love and respect.
A prime example of those lead astray by their blind belief are the Putnams, who shout witchcraft as soon as they discover their daughter to be ill, without any symptoms but complete unconsciousness and with the knowledge of only what she had done the night before. A fellow character that shares the belief, John hale enters the story as a sophisticated doctor to diagnose the true cause of the mysterious
