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 of people can be blinding and problematic. 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.
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 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. She started saying negative words about his own wife, and how she is bullying her in her own town.
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?”
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).
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
The Misfit’s belief in inevitable “punish[ment],” reveals his twisted view on life, a view that could only be created through undeserving pain. The final instance of the Misfit’s unjustified suffering becomes evident through the reason behind his name. In a final explanation to the grandmother, the Misfit states that he gave himself this strange title because he “can 't make what all [he] done wrong fit what all he] gone through in punishment” (O’Connor 15). The Misfit’s inability to explain his “punishment” reveals the thesis behind his murderous lifestyle, a lifestyle crafted from experiences past. Instances of the Misfit’s unjust punishment can be seen through his explanation of his imprisonment, his belief of inevitable punishment, and the thesis behind his crimes.
Meanwhile apprehension grips Parris’s mind that it also compels him arbitrarily to allege many townspeople. Parris blames others to divert attention away from himself. He worries that if the townspeople learn that his daughter and niece have fiddled with witchcraft, his position as pastor could be expelled. Yet at the same time, in the beginning of the play, because Parris placed the title witch on the heads of even the most pious members of his community, he converts into an overly insecure character. All in all, Parris horrors the loss of his job, others finding fault in him, and
Imagine living in a world where each day could be your last day on earth. Learning how to appreciate each and every day is crucial, considering there is no guarantee of tomorrow. In Salem, Massachusetts in the year of 1692, many innocent people lost their lives due to ridiculous accusations of witchcraft. The worst part about this was that the people being accused had no way to defend themselves against these so called “victims” of witchcraft. This horrific time in American history has been retold in an exciting, suspenseful piece of literature.
In the book that handle is known as “The Crucible” by Arthur Miller, goes into detail about what happened in the Salem WItch trials in the duration of 1692. Miller used the Red Scare as motivation to write the book. In the book Abigail and some of her friends are dancing in the woods, when Mr. Parris ( her uncle) catches them. At this point Betty, Mr. Parris daughter and Abigail’s cousin, faints.
I disagree with Ryder , I think that Abigail is the villain. First she threatened the girls . Specially in act 1 Abigail took her friends to the side and told them she'd kill them if they say anything. This detail helps explain that Abigail is the villain, because why would she threaten to kill the girls if she wasn't a villain. Second Abigail lied about drinking blood.
