During the 1600s, young girls in a village located in Massachusetts began accusing women for performing witchcraft. The result of these accusations led to hysteria and the hanging of many people throughout the village. The playwright, The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, and the novel, Witch Child, by Celia Rees, have both fictionalized the Salem Witch Trials. In The Crucible, the antagonist Abigail Williams is the source of conflict. She falsely accuses several village people of performing witchcraft, which resulted from her jealousy of her lover’s wife.
Despite how tense their relationship has been after Elizabeth found out about the affair, Proctor and Elizabeth still hold strong mutual feelings for each other. When Hale came to arrest Elizabeth under the charge that she had assaulted Abigail through the poppet that Mary had brought home with her, Proctor defended her vigorously by declaring the statement: “I will not give my wife to vengeance!” (Miller, 77). The vengeance that Proctor refers to in this statement is Abigail and her determination to replace Elizabeth as Proctor’s lover. This statement is evidence that Proctor is trying to protect Elizabeth from Abigail’s clutches and prove that he is loyal to his wife. Likewise, when Elizabeth is brought before Danforth to verify Proctor’s confession, she lies to protect her husband, whom she refers to as a “goodly man,” from suspicion (Miller, 113).
In the play, “The Crucible” many innocent lives are taken because lies and deceit play a very broad role throughout the entire play. Some Salemnites fake to see spirits to cause others to fear the innocent and get their lives taken to please the fakers. A main character in the Crucible, Abigail Williams uses lying to get her way with the whole town, and to get revenge. Abigail has had an affair with John Proctor who is trying to rid all his sins because he is aware of all his wrongdoings. With Abigail and John’s actions Abigail has a strong connection with John and lies to try and get rid of his wife Elizabeth so her selfish self can have John to herself.

We are like chameleons, we take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us” (John Locke). John Locke was a philosopher and physician in the late 1600’s. His ideas and beliefs about individual rights and a government by the people influenced the formation of the government of the United States, creating the basis for the freedom enjoyed by those citizens today. John Locke was born in England in 1632. His parents were Puritans, and he was raised that way.
Immanuel Kant was a widely known German philosopher who was born in 1724 in Konigsberg, Prussia and died in 1804. Kant was often known as one of the most influential thinkers of the Enlightenment Era. Kant was the fourth of nine children born to Johann Georg Cant and Anna Regina Cant. Later on in his life he would decide to change his name from Cant to Kant so that it would reflect the German spelling and pronunciation practices. He was raised under the influence of Pietism, which was a movement within Lutheranism that began in the late 17th century.
The Crucible is the story of a young Puritan woman in 1692 Massachusetts who made false witchcraft accusations in an attempt to save her life and to end a rival’s life. While her actions are horrific and the cause of numerous deaths, the actions of the adults around her that enabled her lies to cost lives are despicable. Through his dishonest characters, specifically Reverend Parris, Judge Danforth, and John Proctor, Miller exposes the evils of lying to save one’s name and the destruction that inevitably ensues. The first dishonest character mentioned in the play is Reverend Parris, a man who has worked to be a reputable, trustworthy church leader. After he saw his niece, Abigail, and daughter, Betty, dance in the woods, he suspects that they were involved in witchcraft.
Abigail is quick to temper when people gets in her way so she accuses them of witchcraft to get them killed. Abigail said, “Why do you come, yellow bird” (Miller 120). This quote is Abigail accusing Mary Warren of sending her spirit to attack her. She accused her of sending her spirit because Mary Warren told the court that Abigail and the other girls was lying about all of the witchcraft. Abigail said, “I saw Sarah
