The Crucible was a fictional story about the Salem Witch Trials that took place in the Province of Massachusetts, written by Arthur Miller. A conflict Miller writes about is that many of the characters are motivated by jealousy. Jealousy is a terrible emotion; it brings out the worst in people just because they aren’t getting what they want. Like when Abigail is jealous of Elizabeth because she is married to John Proctor, another example is how Thomas Putnam is jealous of people who have land, and then Ann Putnam is jealous of Goody Nurse for having so many kids when she has none. Abigail Williams let jealousy get the best of her when she lusted after John Proctor.
It 's quite sad, really. Selling herself, she reminds him of her devotion, backseat antics and how the other women he may be entertaining would ignore him if he wasn 't successful. In a similar vein, on "Love Drought" she pouts "Tell me, what did I do wrong?...Am I not thirsty enough?...Spend my life in the dark for the sake of you and me...Them old bitches so whack, I 'm so tough, what 's up?" The part of me that goes to Bey to feel unaffectedly invincible can 't deal with all of this pleading, playing the comparison game and what I call "auditioning" (i.e. selling yourself; if your value isn 't immediately seen and always respected, you probably shouldn 't be around), but I digress.
In The Crucible by Arthur Miller, Abigail Williams and John Proctor are known to have had an adulterous affair with one another. Even though both John Proctor and Abigail are worthy of blame for their actions, Abigail is the most culpable of the two. In The Crucible, Abigail is the most to blame because of her “tempting” Proctor to carrying out the act more. During Act 1, Abigail is shown to keep egging on Proctor although he does not want to have the affair with her anymore. She even blatantly flirted with him in order to lure Proctor back to their affair, such as when she told him, “I’d almost forgot how strong you are, John Proctor!” (Miller 1139) By doing so, she is letting John know that she is still interested in him and will not
Someone could admire a person but not trust them or have no actual feelings towards them admiration is too narrow of a statement to be able to replace a word as expensive as love The word love is an obvious need of a definition, to put simply love is when you like someone so much you couldn’t imagine your life without them. It’s love when you trust someone completly and like everything about them from the way they look to the way they make you feel. The word love should be used as a statement for example, “I love you” to describe the way you truly feel about someone. Love is a very important word and can mean a lot once said to someone so choose your use of the word love
A second example of evil would be “Revolts from true birth stumbling on abuse” (21). This quote has malicious meaning because revolt means violently disagreeing and “abuse” means improper treatment of a living thing and objects. The message of this quote is that not caring about somebody causes them to break free of your neglect, which shows that not caring can be a hateful act. This is an example of classical allusion because in the story “Romeo and Juliet” Juliet’s parents abuse her in a sense where they don’t care if she likes who she marries which causes her to further love Romeo. My third and final example of villainous mentions is when Friar Laurence says “And flecked darkness like a drunkard reels” (4).
Abigail's action reaches further than just Elizabeth, she uses the Salem Witch Trials to put out all the resentment she has toward everyone. Similarly to how the lust overpowered Abigail morals, Elizabeth Proctor’s love for her husband slowly consumed her morality, which leads to her to lie in the house of court. After John Proctor and Abigail Williams lechery prior to the play. It had created the leading emotion of jealousy and mistrust Elizabeth has for Abigail. Elizabeth Proctor shows signs of jealousy because she still believes that some of her husband's reluctance is rooted in the fact that he still has feelings for
Whereas knowledge is a one-way love in which you decide to care for it even though you’re not getting literal physical attention or affection. Love is of free will and the individual may give it unconsciously because they’re acting upon their instinct and feelings rather than logic and reasoning. That loving feeling loses its way and in some cases, it stays forever. It’s all depending on the perspective of that relationship you had with that precious thing or person. There isn’t perfect love that exists because at any moment love can be destroyed like paper or
Of all the various translations of the interaction between Jason and Medea, from the play “Medea”, the translation by Warner most strongly reinforces the harsh and severe mannerism between the two. Jason and Medea are manipulative towards one another and use their condescending tactics to victimize themselves and villainize the other. They are selfish in their fragile relationship in that they turn on the other to get what they want from the relationship. In Medea’s case, she wants her ideology of a husband, since this is what she has been accustomed to her whole life and how society has taught her to believe is normal. Jason however, wants whoever he is currently lusting for, who at this time is not Medea, and he will make her out to be anything

This occasion can be seen when Edward is forced to admit his feelings towards the complex situation between Billy 's and Loretta’s slight affair. Before Edward was presented in the short story Loretta’s portrayal was weak. Specifically, the narrator highlights: ”But she was not so sure about not wanting to leave Daisy. Not that she loved Daisy less, but that she--had doubts.” Assuming Loretta was incapable making a decision between running away from an unbearable relationship with Billy and the boundless love towards her older sister Daisy.
