To continue, the white coats are more evil than the god of the sea, Poseidon because they are inhumane. In the story, “Her lungs had started burning bad an hour ago; she hadn’t been able to feel her leg muscles for longer than that, but every time she stopped running , a statistic white coat - Reilly- zapped her with a stick thing… she could feel his eager anticipation- he wanted to hurt her.” (Patterson 52)While it is true that Poseidon tries to kill Odysseus, he stops once Odysseus reaches his home, it is also true that the white coats are inhumane because the white coat wanted to hurt her but had no reason proving that he is a pig. Furthermore, the white coats are more wicked than Poseidon because they are betraying to many people.

The play begins with him talking to another character about how unfair it was for him not to get the lieutenant job, He then wants revenge from Othello. He accuses othello for sleeping with his wife “I hate the moor, it is thought abroad that ‘twixt my sheets/he has done my office-”(I.iii.329-370). Then he goes on insisting his lust for Desdemona because he wants to get revenge from othello “Wife for wife”(II.i.286).

John Proctor fears his name’s identity, which is evident near the end of the play when he resists Deputy Danforth and Reverend Hale’s posting his name on the church door, accusing him of witchcraft (IV.712-717). John Proctor is Elizabeth Proctor’s husband, who involved in an affair with Abigail Williams when she was still working as the Proctor’s maid. Elizabeth fires Abigail, once she realizes her maid and her husband’s covert relationship. Elizabeth’s dismissal causes Abigail to become very angry, for women had little power at the time, let alone unmarried women like herself. By playing her Mafia-like wailing and doll piercing games and forcing the other Salem girl to participate, Abigail determines to terminate Elizabeth and keep John for herself (460-473).

The reason the book might have been banned was because of the severity of bad language. On page four, “So you forgot that awready, did you? I gotta tell you again, do I?
When Scout explains Walter’s situation to her, explaining that the Cunningham’s can’t afford much and never take anything they can’t pay back, and explains that she is embarrassing him, Miss Caroline reacts harshly, tapping Scout’s hand with a ruler and forcing her to stand in a corner. When the Ewell’s case is explained to her, she decides to try and keep Burris in school, however when this backfires, resorts to sending him away again, stating “If you don’t go I’ll call the principal... I’ll have to report this anyway.” This shows her lack of understanding of the townspeople, as she still believes that the principal and herself will be able to keep Burris and the other Ewells in school. It also shows her naivety as a new teacher, as she lacks good knowledge of the local community.
