He soon falls to his illness and dies after admitting his involvement with Hester Prynne. Her obsessive love for Arthur ultimately broke her heart and robbed Pearl of her innocence. This love caused Pearl to lose her freedom that only youth can provide. Therefore, to answer the question of whether Hester is the culprit of her crime or whether she is a victim of it is answered; she has shown characteristics of both. Her behavior repeatedly displayed that the stigma of the scarlet letter fueled her but she also fell victim to its effect.
Have you ever been blinded by the emotions jealousy and greed? Jealousy and greed can confuse you and act as if they are love. In the book The Crucible, one of the main characters surrendered to the lust of her “love” and ended up being the reason for many innocent killings, even the one of her love. For this reason I strongly believe jealousy and greed had the biggest impact on the book. Though I can see how some readers may think vengeance had the biggest impact on this book, Abigail's jealousy of Elizabeth Proctor led her to tell lies and her greed of wanting John Proctor’s love all to herself, drove her to start the killings of innocent people.
Revenge in The Crucible is portrayed very negatively throughout the entire story. People began to reveal their anger with revenge on friends, enemies, even their neighbors for things that had been done in the past and present. Abigail Williams uses revenge on Elizabeth Proctor, because she’s jealous of the couple 's marriage. Ann Putnam, accuses Rebecca Nurse of the death of her seven babies. Thomas Putnam is accusing people so he can buy their land.
Due to her mistakes, even her beloved John Proctor was now sentenced to be hanged. Regretting all that she did, Abigail stole money from her uncle, Paris, and ran away from

Firstly, Lamb to the Slaughter by Shirley Jackson is a synopsis where Mary Maloney, the protagonist, is waiting for her husband
This simple example shows Miller’s belief on the corruption within the court system as Danforth is allowing his favoritism control over his actions throughout Mary Warren’s trial. In addition, his fatal punishment on Mary Warren puts more pressure on her to lie, as her life is put on the stakes. Because of these ironic moments throughout the play, the audience are able to see Miller’s annoyance over the unfairness within the court’s
"I 'll say it whenever I want to! Daisy! Dai——"Making a short deft movement Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand. (2.124-6) After Tom’s treatment towards Myrtle makes us readers to understand that for him Myrtle is just another affair. Despite this awful scene their affair continuous due to the fact that Myrtle is obsessed with the plan of escaping from her marriage.
This holds an important symbol in the story. As Jane is ripping off the wallpaper, she is also tearing away her restraints that her husband had brought upon her. A description of the escape of the narrator states, “They just stood by their husbands, and became imprisoned by the power of their own lovers” (The Gentle Giant). During this time, it was normal for women to not have much of a say. Jane had been trapped all this time.
Both Francesca and Ugolino’s judgements resulted from deliberation and thought, and both of their thoughts were greatly influenced by their oppressed state and some biological factors. They were diverted away from the First good, which made them turn toward the apparent goods. The use of free will in the Inferno served as a path to sin for both Francesca and Ugolino. Dante recognizes that Francesca had very weak control over her judgements, and that love overpowered her, but he also made it clear that she deserves to be in hell. As for Ugolino, he also used his free will to resist loving his sons.
