Achieving a good reputation is very important in her society. So Abigail did whatever she could no matter how cruel it was so that she could save her reputation. On the other hand, in The Lord of the Flies, since the boys are afraid of Jack, who is a very savage leader, they did all the inhumane things like viciously killing pigs. The boys were scared of Jack, who had the absolute authority over
She is eighteen years old, she had an affair with a man named John Proctor, and she cannot be trusted. Abigail displays three character flaws: dishonesty, envy, and lust. Abigail displays dishonesty in the play because she lied about her and the other girls conjuring spirits in the woods.

The way that Abigail’s actions come full circle adds irony and John’s execution adds an element of remorse. Their relationship was doomed from the start, Abigail knew this and simply wanted to be a homewrecker. She gets what she deserves but not in the expected way, she now has to live with the result of her actions for the rest of her life. She has caused the whole town to resort to complete chaos and paranoia all for the attention of a man and not wanting to convict herself of her “bewitching” actions. Without the scandalous and twisted relationship between Abigail and John, neither the book nor the movie would be quite the
She’s the woman who holds grudges, is selfish, and a great liar. Abigail seems to be especially gifted at spreading destruction and chaos wherever she goes. She is able to manipulate others, for example, all her friends and the whole town. In addition, she obtains control over all of them and sends nineteen uninvolved people to their deaths. All these things add up.
She managed to infiltrate herself into the justice system and convince the court of her lies, and then the court forces the people to either accuse neighbours or friends or to risk being hanged. Mass hysteria takes on the village, changing the social landscape completely, destroying friendships, families and taking human lives. Abigail just sits by through all of that, being more motivated by seeing her plans succeed and she enjoys the power her lies obtain her. This exemplifies that Abigail does not have love or simple lust, she is not just a bad person, but that she has pathological obsession and is living in her own mind, still thinking that John will come back to her and that would be the ultimate fulfillment of her
In the play Abigail only cares about herself and what she can do to protect herself.

Prior to the early action in the play the only besmirching of Abigail’s name are the rumours of her secret relationship with John Proctor and this sparks conflict between her and Goody Proctor. “You are now seven month out of their house, and in all this time no other family has ever called for your service.” (Reverend Parris Act1 P.20) The conflict between her and Elizabeth destroyed her reputation as a house maid. This expresses how much a good reputation is for this time as one mistake that may not even be true can “soil” (Reverend Parris Act1 P.20)
Abigail was the cause of everything that is happening in Salem, from the witch trials beginning to the killing of innocent people, but it wasn’t only her who had accused people. Abigail was a flapper as they called it back in the days, and she began to cause all of this dramatic non-sence because she wanted John Proctor. “You have taught me goodness John Proctor, therefore you are good.” , Abigail was crazy in love with
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas The Grinch who stole Christmas is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books and one of my favorite Christmas movies. I found 3 things similar to one another in the book and the movie which had the Grinch who hated Christmas, the Who’s who loved Christmas, and the Grinch stole all of the presents and food. One identical thing I found in the movie and book was that the Grinch hated Christmas. If they didn’t put the Grinch’s hate for Christmas in both the book and, he would have no reason to steal Christmas and it wouldn’t have been a very good movie.
