Adela Strangeworth writes negative notes, accusing people of things, that she has no real evidence of. She wrote these letters on various-coloured paper, layered in pink, green, blue and yellow writing childish block print with a pencil. Her acts were cruel, uncalled for and ended in a member of her town destroying her most beloved possession, her rose bush. Adela Strangeworth received a letter back, in a familiar green envelope with the pencil printing. She then opened the envelope, pulled out the paper and began to silently cry while reading what said “Look out
In the crucible one of the themes was impacting false accusations. One of the accusations was how Abigail (one of our main characters), accused a poor woman named Sarah good that was a beggar. Abbey accused her of witchery by fainting and saying she saw her spirt. So when they told her that she was going to be hanged if she doesn’t confess she confessed. This shows how the court listened to anyone who “cries witchery”, Sarah was and easy target because she was the lowest class in society.
Ellen was just used to the easy city life just like Paul said "I was a poor man when you married me. You said you didn't mind. Farming's never been easy, and never will be" (74). Ellen used to live in the city where her father had a store that made a good amount of money. She wanted their life to be the ideal life she had before.
The symbols in The Possibility of Evil by Shirley Jackson have figurative meanings to them that depict their role in the story. The flowers symbolize as a loved being for Miss Strangeworth since she takes care of them dearly and protects them from the wickedness in her town.

I’m fortunate to have a loving mother who does honest work for a living, I do not care if in the eyes of society it is deemed as a lower job. She does necessary work for necessary people, and she does it well. In Mexico she was trained to be a secretary in North America though her qualifications did not transfer.
The children don’t question Woody’s job status because a job is associated with money, which is associated with providing, and Woody is not viewed as a provider within the context of their home. Troy’s transformation at the end of the film is not surprising, since the children are used to a woman providing and tending to everyone’s needs. The brothers expect a woman to take charge of the housekeeping, and Troy too is affected by believing that since she is a girl, she is expected to take her mother’s place. Clearly, this social environment forces a role onto Troy that most young girls don’t have to play. The death of Troy’s mother curtails her childhood because in the Carmichael family only a woman can

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. Ending In the end your honor we all want justice for the death of a young woman whose life ended too early.
But then again, it was my fault. I never made an effort to speak to anybody nor had a say in
Greatest of The Guilty The character in The Crucible who was the most guilty for the events that transpired was Abigail Williams because of her sin of lechery that led to jealousy and damaged pride, her choice to lie rather than taking responsibility, and for judging good people as being hypocritical that had to be dealt with. As a result of Abigail’s lechery with John Proctor, she felt jealous towards Elizabeth Proctor and judged by the other townspeople. Her jealousy and pride made people targets during the witch trials.
