She does not care about the consequences her choices have on other people. In the beginning she endangers the other girls who were in the woods by turning the dancing into witchcraft when she drinks chicken’s blood and does not warn them of what she was going to do. Even so, compared to her following actions, that one would seem almost innocent. She has a complete disregard of the sanctity of life or any Christian values that she had been taught. She accuses or witnesses how innocent after innocent is sentenced to death or to a long time in prison.
The Crucible and The Holocaust are related because one person was to blame for the mass hysteria, there was one person in power, fear was used to control the people and many people were wrongly punished. A way that The Crucible by Arthur Millar and The Holocaust are related is that one person is the reason for all the fear in The Crucible it was Abigail and in the holocaust it was Hitler. For example “I want to open myself! (They turn to her startled. She is enraptured, as though in a pearly light.
The Narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass shows the imbalance of power between slaves and their masters. In his book, Douglass proves that slavery is a destructive force not only to the slaves, but also for the slaveholders. “Poison of the irresponsible power” that masters have upon their slaves that are dehumanizing and shameless, have changed the masters themselves and their morality(Douglass 39). This amount of power and control in contact with one man breaks the kindest heart and the purest thoughts turning the person evil and corrupt. Douglass uses flashbacks that illustrate the emotions that declare the negative effects of slavery.
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know 'st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.” when he finds out that Juliet is dead, but doesn’t know she faked her death. Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man.
Ismene believes a woman shouldn’t fight authority, especially if death is the penalty. When she was first asked to participate in the plan she said, “What? You’d bury him when the law forbids the city?” (Antigone 61). She didn’t think about the fact that it’s her own brother that is laying above the ground deceased. The only thing she cared about was that the city forbids her to do anything outside of the law.
If you are reading your history book, a play, or even watching the news today, you will see how people abuse the power that they have over somethings. There have been many leaders and people who abuse their power over civilization and places. Even the littlest taste of power often leads them to corruption. Many times, citizens and adversaries riot over some of the things that they disagree on and, in some cases, murder comes in to play. An example of corruption in a play is in the play Julius Caesar.
Revenge is shown throughout Arthur Miller’s The Crucible in very negative ways. Revenge is aimed at enemies, friends, even neighbors once Abigail and her group realized how much power they had, and for greedy self-interest. Everything was done for revenge, and it all started to cover up what Abigail and her sister had done. Abigail Williams used revenge on Elizabeth Proctor, because she hoped to split Elizabeth and John, so her love for John would be acceptable in society. Ann Putnam had accused Rebecca Nurse of the death of her seven babies.
Horrible things can happen when power is placed in the wrong hands. I'm positive we all have witnessed power being placed in the hands of an unqualified individual before. A few obvious examples, Germany in the hands of Hitler, America being given to a rich business man painted orange, or a less obvious, just as tragic example; Abigail Williams being granted the lives of innocent people. The Crucible is a play written about the witch trials, and everything that came with it, lies, betrayal, and most unforgettable death. In the play 20 innocent lives were lost and the blood lays on the hands of 17 year old Abigale Williams who's wicked lies caused so much damage.
Later, when Lenina frets about her relationship with John, Fanny says, “why don’t you just go and take him. Whether he wants it or no” (188). This aggression is disturbing. The society has taught her that personal liberty doesn’t matter, and her own experience of not being forced into anything has made her devoid of empathy for that
