He accused Putnam of prompting his daughter to accuse their fellow townsmen of witchery, like George Jacobs, in order to seize more land. He explains to Danforth that, “If Jacobs hangs for a witch he forfeit up his property- that’s law! And there is none but Putnam with the coin to buy so great a price” (96). The tension between Corey and Putnam shows the tension between people in the town, but it also exemplifies the way they manipulated people in order to receive power for themselves. Corey’s claims show that Putnam tried to manipulate George Jacobs by having his daughter accuse him and have him hang, and he would buy Jacobs's land, which is his symbol of power and
Also, she is an anti-hero because she locks herself up in the white room. In the story “A Sorrowful Woman,” the young mother and wife show the traits of an outsider. An outsider is a person who does not belong to a particular group. The wife shows she is an outsider by being unable to take care of her household. She is sickened by the sight of her husband and child.
He broadens the societal view of happiness and introduces the idea that, “Being an unhappy person does not mean you must be sad or dark.” By making this conjecture, he enhances his initial purpose, it’s okay to not be happy. Or more relatively speaking, if you have negative feelings, that does not instantly define you as negative. Depressing matters occur in life, some you may never fully heal from, yet the societal expectation to always be happy doesn’t conform well to this fact. Burroughs views these societal standards as having an, “unspoken zero-tolerance policy for negativity.” His words clearly suggesting to not value these unrealistic goals if they do not suit

For instance, The Huntsman made a deal with the Evil Queen that she'll bring back his dead wife back if he brings back the prisoner that escaped into the dark forest back to her.This shows greed because he just wants his wife's live with him because to him it doesn't matter who he has to kill or capture to get his wife back. Secondly, In Washington Irving's “ The Devil and Tom Walker” Tom Walker's wife displays her greed by hiding useless things that are mostly used by the husband and the wife lie eggs but she hides it. For instance, “At length she determined to drive the bargain on her own account… to keep all the gain to herself .” (P.233 Irving) Tom Walker's wife ran into the woods with all their valuable silverware without her husband to deal with the devil so she could keep the money to herself. Evidently, In both “Snow White and The Huntsman” and “The Devil and Tom Walker” shows a characteristic of greed from The Huntsman because of his goal of getting his wife. And Tom Walker's wife because she left her husband to deal with the Devil

Once her father hears these accusations, he commands to “let her die” as a result of the crimes she committed (IV.i.163). These incidents in the play illustrate Hero’s sacrifice of her angelic and pure character. Hero does little to convince others of her innocence. Moreover, clinging to the traditional views of women, men are unlikely to listen to what women have to say. Shakespeare portrays women 's ranking in relation to men by illustrating Hero’s great sacrifice, and how her closest mentors refuse to help support her.
However, this truth remains unknown to Parris, so one has to analyze the situation from his point of view. Disregarding the truth, the first thing Parris worries about is his own name and reputation, instead of his daughter’s wellbeing. Thus, having his estate and daughter involved with witchcraft and unnatural events obviously threatens his rank as a revered. While arguing with Abigail, he says “my ministry’s at stake, my ministry and perhaps your cousin’s life”(Miller, 11), explicitly revealing how he places the importance of his name before Betty’s own sake. Parris is afraid of what others might think of him and avoids facing the congregation in order to evade the topic of witchcraft.
I have experienced enough times when I was relaxed that I know what it’s like. The best way to describe it would be when a person is at total peace. They are not really thinking about much they are just enjoying themselves. They are not worrying about the past they are not afraid of the future. They are in that moment, at that time, in that place.

As the woman quickly flees upon her release, the narrator refuses to follow as she is so unaccustomed to the “green instead of yellow” (89). In addition, the narrator calls her husband “young man” (89) demonstrating her emotional distance and reversing patronizing attitude. Her husband is no longer a figure of fear as she mirrors his “gentlest voice” (89) thus “silencing him” (89). He merely becomes "that man" (89) whom she nonchalantly creeps over. However, unable to go back to her habitual life, and unwilling to leave the house, she finds herself in state of madness and unreliability.
This shows the inequality of men and women’ rights.
