Abigail has been accused of threatening Betty when she revealed the truth that she had “drank (the) blood, a charm to kill” me(Act 1,pg 26). Is this not enough, can you not see her sick mind?

Buy didn’t “keep it like it is” then she would burn like a pyre. This sounds like a crazed woman, who was pushed over the line just because one of her murals was being removed. She is a professional artist so she has access to exact paint thinner that could have started the fire. Robin Banks has motive and hatred towards the Glutco company and she stopped at nothing to get revenge on them.
In fact it can be considered as one of the darkest times in history. In the novel , The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne tells a story about a puritan woman who commited adultery and was not killed only because she was conceived. She was judged by nearly everyone in her town, even years later when her daughter grew up. If anyone were to be nice or even treat her in a good way they would be viewed as an enemy so nobody even dared. The townspeople all wanted to be apart of a group and that group consisted of shunning anyone who disobeyed the Ten Commandments.
This is the most defining characteristic that shows her malice. All cultures have definite laws to punish those who take the life of someone else. It is abhorred by everyone, especially in a culture of piety. Murder is so abominable because it ends life, the God given right of life. Even the malicious Abigail knew this, whether or not if she did respect her Puritan religion.
Lady Macbeth was a very powerful woman who was head strong in her decisions. Lady Macbeth was very wicked and did spiteful things like giving the soldiers alcohol to blame the murder on them.

Lady Macbeth only wants the fame and fortune; she does not care about anyone’s feelings but her own.
"That never occurred. I had loving parents, and my childhood was without trauma. As for why I say the girl was humiliated and treated like an animal. Isn 't what you 'd do, Doctor, take your time to savour it?

The character “Mary Maloney” from the short story “Lamb to the Slaughter” perpetrated condemning actions towards her husband and fellow society members, by her sinful behavior as follows, she carries out the crime of a murder by killing her husband (Patrick Maloney), then conceals the murder in mischievous ways, and tops it by mocking respected officers. Foremost, Mary Maloney ceased her husband’s life away forever with no sorrow within her. “All right, she told herself. So I’ve killed him” (p.13).

Upon first reading this play, emotions of anger, disappointment, and relief swirled to the surface. The fact that Medea was to escape without any consequences angered me so much, but as I thought about it more, my emotions began to shift. It wasn’t as if Medea murdering her children was something she wanted to do. She had to have gone through so much to push her to that point. How can I better justify her actions and relate it to a 21st century audience?
Modern Day Medea When reading the play Medea one might not think of Stephen King’s novel Carrie. There are however, many similarities between the two stories and the two main characters.

Medea portrays the consequence of a rebellious being’s response to a hostile society through vengeance, passion, and deceitfulness. It also gives the reader a unique perspective on the roles of women that were considered taboo, and still are, at least in the western culture. At the beginning of her relationship with Jason, Medea was strengthen by love to do the unimaginable. Her clever and crafty style were her frequent methods of overcoming obstacles and getting what she wanted.

This is an ironic statement as Medea is actually planning to kill her children, a fact which the audience does not yet know about. Jason uses another form of rhetorical stretching, which includes his plea that leaving his wife and children was a ‘wise move’, and that the decision was made with Medea’s best interests at heart, as much an attempt to convince himself as much as the audience. The chorus is quick to point out that ‘You have betrayed your wife and are acting badly.’ The Nurse is our first instance of anagnorisis during the play. Though an ancient Greek audience would well be in tune with the stories in Greek mythology, the Nurse’s role would still have proved important, as she was a tool Euripides used to transport the audience
From a young age, society teaches that every cause has an effect, every action a consequence. Children are taught this in many ways, one being how to follow rules. If one doesn’t follow rules, the consequence is a punishment of some sort. In Euripedes’ Greek tragedy, Medea, the main character, Medea, is mourning the loss of her husband who has left her and their two children to marry the princess of Corinth. As one can imagine, Medea is outraged at how Jason has treated their family after all Medea has done for him.
