Welty ReWrite As a child, many of us dream of the monsters lurking in the dark and fear the monsters that are merely figments of our imaginations. For Eudora Welty, that monster was in the form of Mrs. Calloway, the librarian of the town. Despite her fears, Welty would return to the library and face her monster on a daily basis to check out new reading material. Why would Welty willingly face a woman she feared daily?

This first quotation takes place in Act 1 between Abagail Williams and John Proctor at Reverend Hale’s home. Abigail was talking to proctor about what really happened the night her and the others conjured spirits because proctor was going to get Mary warren but she wasn’t there which left them alone together.

This quote shows Liesel looking back on her long life at her beloved foster parents, Rosa and Hans, with affection after losing them in the war many years prior.
