Revenge in The Crucible is portrayed very negatively throughout the entire story. People began to reveal their anger with revenge on friends, enemies, even their neighbors for things that had been done in the past and present. Abigail Williams uses revenge on Elizabeth Proctor, because she’s jealous of the couple 's marriage. Ann Putnam, accuses Rebecca Nurse of the death of her seven babies. Thomas Putnam is accusing people so he can buy their land.
She meets with nothing but despair and frustration. She seeks asylum in her sister’s house but is raped by her brother-in-law and ends up in asylum. Williams characters exhibit qualities that are pathetic. Pathos at times yields to a sort of modern Gothic mélange in which Williams preoccupations have been stylized into fashionable nightmares of castration, incest and homosexuality. One of Williams favourite themes was the ruthless destruction of idealists and artists.
Stella is resentful and angry. She does not try to escape the reality she is faced with but allows it to negatively affect her attitude towards her sister and her mother. For example Ozick explains “Then Stella took the shawl away and made Magda die. Afterward Stella said: ”I was cold.” And Afterward she was always cold, always. The cold went into her heart: Rosa saw that Stella’s heart was cold.”(300) Through this we see that Rosa has come to realize that in the dire circumstances of their situation Stella has come to really only care for herself not her family unlike Rosa.
She begins by informing him that she, “poor Anne/Wife to thy Edward, to thy slaughtered son”(10), is the speaker. Referring to herself using this title, Anne suggests the reason why she has become “poor Anne” is because she is mourning a slaughtered husband. Consequently, her grief has turned her into a wretched and miserable widow. After alerting his ghost of her presence, Anne informs him that the killer who slaughtered his son, is the same one who ended his life. She wails to King Henry’s ghost, that she “pour[s] the helpless balm of [her] poor eyes” (13), into the wounds that have let out his soul.
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father did not allow her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the Old South. When she told the men to see Colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.
This shows the theme because Abigail who use to work at the Proctor’s household claims to had a fling with Mr. Proctor. Sooner or later the wife finds out, kicking Abby out of the house thus creating her hatred towards Goody Proctor. Another place in the story that supports this theme is when Mary Warren tired standing up to Abigail in

He learns about this through his mother who is an addict to it. He thinks that taking soma is a sin itself and tells his mother to stop. He slowly sees the darkness of the world he has been shown and is losing his innocent self. While morning the death of his mother some children make fun of him it is said that, “They had mocked him through his misery and remorse, mocked him with how hideous a note of cynical derision! Fiendishly laughing, they had insisted on the low squalor, the nauseous ugliness of the nightmare.” (Huxley 184).
On top of everything, her mother is continually sending her to stay with one of her aunties to keep her away from Glen, her abusive step-father. After Bone moves into the doctor 's facility, she lets us know that she has to be pulled back: "I set my teeth and attempted to overlook everything except for what was directly before me" (9.3). Sounds like she is having some genuine fury. Subsequent to getting stuck in an unfortunate situation at Woolworth 's, Bone portrays feeling "a craving in the back of the throat" (7.38) and that is the same desire she feels when she visits Glen 's family. When she strokes off to the dream of being beaten, she says, "I lived in a universe of disgrace […] I knew I was a debilitated sickening individual" (8.45).
