“Because I KNOW HER!!” John Proctor addresses this to the council when Abigail is starting back up with her lies. John gives that statement to prove he is aware of his wrongdoings and to trap Abigail in
John Proctor was an adulterer. He cheated on his wife with another woman named, Abagail Williams. John Proctor did not love Abagail, but she was in love with him. Abagail would do anything to make John Proctor hers. She was so crazy about John that she accused Elizabeth Proctor of witch craft.
The Indictment this is what you could say the Salem witch trials were all about and this is how Abigail got people found guilty and excommunicated from the church. She scared all of her friends to lie and it almost made them seem subservient to her. She was the first accuser and accused Tituba and after that everything went downhill. The judges seemed like they had a lot of predilection towards her and did not want to listen to the people that were accused unless they admitted to witchcraft.
At this instance, he is indirectly fueling Abigail and the girls to accuse whomever they want to. Judge Danforth’s irrationality bubbles out in this situation, as according to his judiciary system any person accused of witchcraft have no chance of being a defendant due to the absence of a witness. This shows incompetence and irrationality of legal judgments on the part of an experienced Judge such as Danforth. Lastly, Danforth’s poor judgment is also revealed in the instance of the play wherein John proctor sacrifices his name and tell the truth that he and Abigail had committed the crime of Lechery. In order to confirm this Judge Danforth calls Elizabeth Proctor to testify in court, in which she lies, as a result Danforth says “She spoke nothing of lechery, and this man has lied” (Miller 114).

The three stories I will be using are, “The Crucible”, “Animal Farm”, and “The Devil and Tom Walker” because they have really good, clear villains in them. “The Crucible” has too many villains to pick from but the main and most important villain is depicted as a small body, pale, young girl named Abigail Williams. She pretends to be poisoned by witch craft but is really a fake that brings at least a dozen more people into the unfortunate events called “The Salem witch trials”. She continually tells lies throwing people more dirt on innocent people that caused them to be hanged. She first deceives with her lips and then with her actions.
She hates Solange because she reminded her of their position, of their reality. Though she is the favoured one between the 2 sisters, she is more venomous in her hatred for her Mistress as she really tried her best to make the mistress drink the poison tea. At the end of the play, she wanted to die as the mistress so she can die free in her fantasy world and can break her sister out from servitude by making her a criminal. The Mistress Age: Late
Today, the issue of the corruptive nature of power is an important one, as seen in our current presidential election. This issue is also present in the book Macbeth by William Shakespeare. We chose to do a children's picture book in order to illustrate the theme of the destruction nature of power, using specific characters and parts of scenes. With focus on the main character, Macbeth, and minor characters such as Lady Macbeth, Banquo, and Duncan, it allows us to devote most of the book to the characters that affected and were affected by power the most. We actually included every scene within the play in a condensed format so that we could keep all of the negative aspects of power while still keeping it accessible to children.
