Sin is something all humans do, some may feel guilt about it, and others may embrace. Abigail Williams, in The Crucible, shows that the nature of man is to sin and be aware of it. Miller exposes Abigail Williams’s human nature, “She wants me dead. I knew all week it would come to this.” Abigail Williams knows that she is sinning when she tries against Elizabeth in order to get rid of her. She is envious of her and wants Proctor for herself. This backs up the claim in a disturbing but true way. Abigail Williams knows that she sinned when she became envious, but instead of feeling guilt or even stopping herself from sinning, she still acknowledges that she was and still is envious of Elizabeth Proctor. The same theme occurs in another story.
