Rather then acknowledging that they didn’t understand events. They said it was the devils work acting through someone in town. For example Abigail’s accusions were all just games to her but it forced people to have to choose death or not going to heaven for lieing. Many people wouldn’t confess, in fear of abandoning their friends, like when John Proctor was forced to sign a confession. After everything was said and done, Abigail left town and never had to face up to what she did to many innocent people.
When she came back from church, “she [pointed] her finger” at Constancia because she felt like Connie did not respect her feelings (Ortiz, 16). She was disappointed and angry at the fact that Connie didn’t help her out at church. This shows that the lack of a close family relationship will cause problems between family members. When you respect and value others, they will feel fortunate to have as their
John Proctor defies the church by forgetting the adultery commandment, a major sin that is punishable by death. This causes tension between him and Judge Danforth who believes Proctor is guilty of adultery because of his affair with Abigail Williams. Danforth begins to conceive that Salem citizens can not only carry out sins and break away from the church, but from the government as well. This is perceived as a personal fear, but it’s the actions Danforth carries out that makes the fear spread among the community. He questions those who are convicted, and punishes them without a proper trial.
Proctor’s case is ultimately not believed by the court because Elizabeth did not tell the truth, therefore he will pay the consequences of his actions according to the court. The morning before his conviction, he speaks to his wife Abigail and confesses by saying “I cannot mount gibbet like a saint, it is fraud, My Honesty is broke, Elizabeth, I am no good man, nothing's spoiled by giving them this lie that were not rotten long before.” (Miller 126). By this quotation in the text the reader is able to tell that Proctor, who knows is going to die, expresses his disappointment in himself and asks Elizabeth for forgiveness for his crime of adultery. This in turn shows the sporadic change of proctors situation. Starting as a secret, later becoming evidence and finally being used as a
Abigail was affected by his integrity, or his temporary lack of integrity. Proctor committed lechery with Abigail, and he never thought that it would be the cause for a group of girls to commit witchcraft, people dying, and people being jailed. “But I will cut off my hand before I'll ever reach for you again…,”(p. 1370) this quote demonstrates John Proctor’s integrity and guilt. Abigail is making advances on him and he turns
What he's father did to her mother caused he to have no trust in her own husband. Their daughter also suffered as she “bunches over as she walks… her posture and the concentrated way she gazes down suggest that she's a girl who believes she has a problem” (Yarbrough 642). It is hinted that she might have been thinking about hearing gossip, which might be the gossip of the town about her family. As for what “The Rest of Her Life” has in common with “Caviar” by , there doesn’t seem to be all that much. The only real thing that they have in common is the fact that both stories involve a husband cheating on his wife.
The emotional pain that Juries feel after acquitting anyone who should be guilty could take a burden on one 's life. After doing research on Juror B-29, I found that her life was turned upside down because of public information, for the Juror 's life has been destroyed and caused her distress all because she was in the process of eviction, in addition to how much anger her friends feel towards her after hearing the verdict (Uwumarogie, 2013).
I guess that's what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education. I'm sure their parents are just as guilty for not knowing what their kids were doing; or knew it and didn't care.” The teacher goes on to add, “I'm almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone. Maybe the 50s and 60s were really on to something. Now, let the bashing of my true and honest opinion begin...GO!” The reaction to her opinion has been critical, with people taking to Twitter to express their disappointment, frustration, and worry over the teacher’s remarks.

From this context in the story, you as the reader can conclude that she probably doesn’t have many friends to keep her company. The fact that she was raped by her own father and still tried to protect him is very disturbing. From this you can infer that she is a weak human being with no social standard for herself. She even blames the crime on an innocent
