She was the one who began the entire witchcraft because she wanted Elizabeth killed and John Proctor all to herself.
Mary Warren was responsible for the dark ending of the crucible because she played Abigail 's game, in the beginning, In the beginning, Marry Warren followed Abigail 's example in accusing people of being witches.

Her strangeness throws his op, and her evident pallor and weakness.
“I should have had a physical courage enough, I assure you; but I had not the moral courage.” (The Notes from the Underground, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Part II, Book I, page 31). Overall, this man’s nature is contradicted by his own double personality. It seems like the Underground man does not have his character built yet, since he cannot choose what he wishes to be. He has a choice in being between good, ordinary man and the despicable, spiteful and unique person. In contrary, he is not able to pick what is best for him.
