Many people die in the village after a series of lies and unjust practices. Abigail’s Williams, after having had an affair with John, begins with this cycle of lies to make her feel more important in Salem to feel wanted or even feel as if she was needed. Her character includes both superiority and resentment throughout the play so far and the way she shoes that she is rebelling against the compressed
Putnam’s greed of how much he wants the land, leads to the false accusation of George Jacobs as a witch by Ruth. In Act One, an example of greed would be how Abby is willing to go through with such bad things to try and be with Proctor. She does this even after many times being told not to. She gets to a point where she even tries to kill Elizabeth to be with Proctor. “You did, you did!
The emotions a person feels can cause people to do unimaginable things to themselves and other people. Throughout the book, people's emotions bring out the worst of the people of Salem. The people of Salem begin accusing people of witchcraft for their own personal vendettas and gain. In the book “ The Crucible” by Arthur Miller the people demonstrate, When reason fails, emotions control and results in the destruction of what is morally right or good. Before the book begins, Abigail Williams was fired by the Proctors because of her affair with John Proctor, the husband of the Elizabeth Proctor.
Jealousy is one main reason these three young girls seek revenge throughout the play. What personal reasons are these young girls seeking revenge from other characters? Abigail Williams is the strikingly beautiful niece of Reverend Parris and she seeks revenge from Elizabeth Proctor. We learned in Act One of ¨The Crucible" that when Abigail was a servant of Goody Proctor and John Proctor, that she had an affair with John Proctor. Tension rises between Abigail Williams and Elizabeth Proctor because Elizabeth had suspicions of Abigail and kicked her out of her house.
She is telling lies about me! She is a cold, sniveling woman, and you bend to her! Let her turn you like a—”. In this quote, it describes her anger, for John Proctor 's wife Elizabeth. Abigail was just trying to get rid of John 's wife Elizabeth, and try to get back into his life, however John didn’t accept her words of his own wife.
The unjust treatment that the creature received from humankind was harsh and unreasonable as he wasn’t allowed the opportunity to prove his intentions were far from malicious. His loneliness, isolation and injustice from those he tried to befriend turned him into an actual monster, evidently his perspective and personality changed after being excluded. The monster had been treated unfairly by humanity “I desired love and fellowship and I was spurned. Was there no injustice in this? … Am I to be thought the only criminal when all human kind sinned against me?” (Ch.8) and without the acceptance he yearned for, he became bitter and resentful, acting out ruthlessly.
The creature was trying to help this girl, but he was punished because of his looks (101). This causes his fury to build into evil and bitterness: “Inflamed by pain, I vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind,” (101). The creature was in pain from being shot, and he vowed to get revenge against all humans (101). Without friends, the creature has felt no love or kindness from anyone, except from blind De Lacey (95-96). This need for friends has developed into him being evil; where as if he had friends, then he probably would not want to cause pain and misery upon everyone.
Macbeth's lust for power becomes blatantly obvious based upon his fears that "to be thus is nothing, but to be safely thus", prompting him to kill Banquo and make an attempt at his son, Fleance. To relieve himself of his insecurities, he manipulates two murderers to believe than Banquo is their "enemy" and the source of all of their problems, displaying his twisted nature. He does not, before the act is already committed, share news of the "deed of dreadful note" with his "dearest chuck", Lady Macbeth, proving he has made his face a "vizard to [his] heart" not only for the public, but also to his once-cohort. Macbeth's peers' opinion sinks so low that he is often merely referred to as a "tyrant" rather than by his name. He is not only a traitorous and cruel king, but the extent to which he is "unfit to govern" makes him "unfit to live" - deserving of death for how he has let down Scotland.
Thomas Putnam was accusing all of his neighbors of witchcraft so that he can buy their land. Giles Corey tells the court that a man told him that Putnam was wrongfully accusing people so he could buy their land, but Giles would not reveal to the court who gave him this information. Giles Corey states “you know well why not! He’ll lay in jail if I give his name!” (Miller 187). He’s telling the court the reason why he wont give the mans name up because he doesn’t want the man to be put in jail.
She will say or do anything to cover up the fact that she took a blood charm to kill John Proctor's wife, whom she had affair with. Abigail threatens the girls that she will come “in the black of some terrible night” if they mention what happened to anyone that night (1.1.1244). Abigail Williams will also lie about anything to
