Jordan McNeill Period 2 October 25, 2015 In 1588 the troops of England gathered at Tilbury. Preparing themselves to repel an expected invasion by the King of Spain’s army. Queen Elizabeth I of England delivered a passionate speech encouraging her men to risk their lives in battle. In her, albeit short, speech the Queen deftly uses different rhetorical strategies. Elizabeth makes exceptional use of the Aristotelian Appeals, which are means of persuasion.

Lizabeth tells the reader "Then I lost my head entirely, mad with the power of inciting such rage, and ran out of the bushes in the storm of pebbles, straight toward Miss Lottie, chanting madly, "Old witch fell in a ditch, picked up a penny and though she was rich," (3).
She says that she will work with half a dozen men to decide what to do. Another response by Elizabeth was in Document 11, a speech to Parliament in which she states how men are not needed on the throne because she alone can care for society.

As time goes on elizabeth realizes that abigail doesn't like her and is out to kill her, so she can take her place and be with john. This can be represented as foreshadowing because from act 1 elizabeth find out all the negativity about abigail but in act 2 she is actually
The quote shows evidence of what Elizabeth is feeling towards her husband. In comparing both sides I believe that Elizabeth Proctor is not guilty. All she wanted to do was protect her husband, which shouldn't condemn her. Any body pressured in that kind of situation would lie to protect the one they love. She also did nothing wrong to Abigail and was tormented by Abigail and the other girls for supposed witchcraft, which we all know she did not do, Elizabeth was known for honesty and

Growing up in the decrepit time of the Great Depression, Lizabeth was unacquainted of the world outside her shanty neighborhood.
