The final example is at the beginning of the play Abigail threatens all of the girls. “Let either of you breathe a word, or the edge of a word, about the other things, and I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you” (1268). She told the girls if they did not go along with her plan she would kill
How dare they do this to my family? I will get my revenge. When they came to I went to them and explained the situation and that I had a plan to get out, fight. When the sun fell and the moon rose we started our attack we went hut to hut lighting them on fire and when they were all lit ablaze we heard the most terrifying noise a scream only a true monster would have we turned and saw the mother. She came tearing through the forest after us killing one of us when she caught one.
By spilling all these accusations, Abigail turned Salem into a boiling pot of rumor and hatred. Even more so, it’s sad to think that Abigail did all of it simply because she wanted John back, and was angry at Elizabeth for being kicked out. On page 1157, Abigail's accusations are put on display, “I saw Goody Sibber with the Devil… I saw Goody Hawkins with the Devil… I saw Goody Booth with the Devil!”. Abigail couldn’t control her mouth, and ran around town accusing and denying to her content. Alan Kazdin talks about lying, “It is unlikely that lying will be completely eliminated, but with the right encouragement, it can be dramatically lessened”.
One example of her attacks is on line 411-414 it says “she Took a single victim and fled from the hall, running to the moors, discovered, but her supper assured, sheltered in her dripping claws. She’d taken Hrothgar's closest friend. The attacks on the mead hall was for the revenge of Grendel's death. But in the poem beowulf has an intense fight with her and almost loses but still manages to kill her. On line 520-525 it says ”lifted it high over his head and struck with all the strength he had left,caught her in the neck and cut it through, broke bones and all.
I listen as he calls out my name last. “John Proctor, murderer and speaker to the devil.” Elizabeth lets go of my hand and we are all led out of the church. I am pushed towards the stand. I stand next to Goody Nurse and another woman. The crowd is cheering and hollering.
Abigail Williams proclaims “Let either of you breathe a word...and I will come to you...and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you” (pg. 1137). She says this to all the girls, so that she won’t have to face the consequences, that she knows could end her. This quotes sets off Abigail Williams’ character as a selfish villain. Towards the end of The Crucible, Proctor shames himself and confesses of having affair with Abigail.
Abigail is quick to temper when people gets in her way so she accuses them of witchcraft to get them killed. Abigail said, “Why do you come, yellow bird” (Miller 120). This quote is Abigail accusing Mary Warren of sending her spirit to attack her. She accused her of sending her spirit because Mary Warren told the court that Abigail and the other girls was lying about all of the witchcraft. Abigail said, “I saw Sarah
“…I have here an accusation by Mr. Corey against you. He states that you coldly prompted your daughter to cry witchery upon George Jacobs that is now in jail.” (Danforth 182). This shows that someone thinks that the girls did perform witch craft and now that there is an accusation against them, the whole village will know what someone saw. The girl’s reputation is going to be ruined by the accusation made against them, and now they have to do anything to prove that they are innocent. Anyone will do anything to protect their reputation.
That is exactly what happened. He was feeling Curley’s wife’s hair and she didn’t want her hair to mess up so she told him to let go and he wouldn’t. She started yelling and screaming, telling him to let go which made Lennie scared so he choked her to death. He shattered her neck, causing her to die (Steinbeck
She gains her power by manipulating the other girls into following her and pushing her sins onto other people, such as when she taunted Mary Warren in the courthouse to save her own skin by saying “Envy is a deadly sin, Mary” (115). The negative ambition she has to accuse Elizabeth Proctor of witchcraft also ties into her getting power. Both Elizabeth and John know about Abigail framing Elizabeth, “Question Abigail Williams about the Gospel, not myself” (70)., but her false persona of an innocent young girl is what ultimately allows her to get away with her
Infuriated she waits until the dead of night to spring an attack. “They DARE celebrate the death of my son, Death, ruin, and destruction I shall rain upon them for their insolence. They shall feel the agony of losing those close to them!” she rages as she severs the head from the guard posted outside bursts through the hall’s large wooden doors, grabbing another drunken idiot. As she fled the gory scene, she spied her son’s bloodied arm placed upon the wrecked door
Peony had just gave up on running when she feels an arm slide under her legs and another across her back-the world spinning in her head as Rhett lifts her off the ground. “Don’t worry- I got you.” He begins running in the opposite direction of her campsite- of her group. She tries to tell him to stop, to turn around and go help her allies but she can’t find her voice. Dark spots begin clouding her vision, one spot- two spots- three, she takes one last breath- praying that her group gets out safe before her whole body relaxes and everything goes black.
After that, Lennie 's big fingers fell to stroking her hair after she took his hand and put it on her head. And then she cried angrily. Lennie was in a panic and continued until she died. After killing Curley’s wife, Lennie left from the ranch. Later, Candy came and found Curley 's wife died.
