This first quotation takes place in Act 1 between Abagail Williams and John Proctor at Reverend Hale’s home. Abigail was talking to proctor about what really happened the night her and the others conjured spirits because proctor was going to get Mary warren but she wasn’t there which left them alone together. The quote takes the readers into the past to the affair Abigail had with John Proctor. John is trying to put the affair behind him although he still has feelings for her but Abigail is still very jealous of the life Elizabeth Proctor lives and she begs John to come back to her. This quote is a catalyst because it represents Abigail’s desire for John and foreshadows the length she will go to replace Elizabeth.
Unfortunately, Abigail's lies and hated was the cause of John's death and Elizabeth imprisonment. Both John and Elizabeth show characteristics of being faithful and protective. Elizabeth is a strong, brave, Christian women, and she believes her life has been great until she finds out that her Husband had an affair with Abigail. Elizabeth is heart broken after what her husband had done to her , but she thought
John wants Mary to tell the truth but she tells him that if she does, Abigail will tell about their sexual encounters. The reasons for John and Abigail 's affair are not definite, but this quote gives clues “Oh, I marvel how such a strong man may let such a sickly wife be.” (1270) Elizabeth has been sick for a while because she is a mother of two children that are not far apart age wise.

People in the Crucible thought he was an honorable man and that no honorable man will ever sin. So when John and Abigail meet each other, Abigail flirts with John, and John say, “No, no, Abby. That’s done with.” So we know he has committed adultery against his wife, Elizabeth Proctor, with Abigail Williams and that gives us a bad image of John sinning and commiting adultery with Abigail and doesn’t really respect his wife. In Act 2, we see a trait of John Proctor which is not being loyal to his own wife, Elizabeth Proctor. He doesn't like the food that Elizabeth made and we see that their relationship stays faded through a conversation that demonstrates that Elizabeth doesn't trust John anymore.
This line suggests that she desires for their love to live an impossible length. Bradstreet most likely had a hard time imagining her life without her husband, and in result she expresses complete devotion to him. Phillis Wheatley had difficulty accepting the judgements and misinterpretations that regarded Christian slaves. Wheatley has a much easier time accepting that people in this era failed to accept minorities when writing, “Remember, Christians, Negroes, black as Cain, / May be refined, and join the angelic train.”(Wheatley 7). She found it difficult accepting that she originated from the, “pagan,” lands.
Even though Rose is a great wife to Troy, he still is so discontent with his life that he cheats on her. Troy tells Rose on page 69, "It ain't about nobody being a better woman or nothing. Rose, you ain't the blame. A man couldn't ask for no woman to be a better wife than you've been" (Wilson, 1986). This shows that Troy was fortunate enough to have Rose as his wife, but he was so unhappy with his life he found someone else to be with and love.
Although Rose disagrees with Troy from time to time she shows unconditional love and tries to be understanding. However, later in the play Troy betrays her by being unfaithful and this makes rose put up her own fence. She tries to communicate with troy but is also very cautious because she knows how much he hurt her and would most likely not hesitate to do it again. Rose wants to keep the marriage between them because they have been together for so long and it is her only source of shelter. Rose is then stuck with the responsibility of caring for Troys daughter that he had with another woman after she passed away during birth.
