You will tell it in the court, Mary Warren: I cannot” (Miller, 80) In this conversation, Mary Warren and John Proctor are at odds because Mary is scared and unwilling to testify, but Proctor is forcing her to do so. He does not want to testify, but if Mary testifies, saying the same thing, Proctor does not have to. Mary’s testimony ensues a series of events at the courthouse, ending with the everyone outside in a panic, and Mary, more scared of Abigail than Proctor now, accuses Proctor of witchcraft. If Mary and Proctor has not fought, she would not have testified, these events would not have happened, Proctor would not be accused, and the idea that the accusations were false would not have been placed in the Judge’s head. Each conflict has built upon each other, Ann Putnam vs. Death begins the trials with the first mention of witchcraft.
In "Half-Hanged Mary" , Mary was accused for witchcraft with no evidence at all she along with many others. "Having been hanged for something I never said" (Atwood Later). Mary lost her sanity, she does not feel like it is fair. Mary becomes in power for the reason she can not be hanged for not reason. In The Crucible , Abigail proclaims to Reverend Parris, "My name is good in the village!
(To Parris) How do you propose, then? Parris: Excellency, I would postpone these hangin’s for a time. Danforth: There will be no postponement.” This shows that the judge, Danforth, refused to listen to his top advisor when he told him to postpone the hangings. A second piece of evidence is actually in the movie, when Danforth tells a girl that it is impossible for someone she is accusing of witchcraft to be a witch because she is Reverend Hale’s wife. This shows corruption because he is refusing to believe certain
He turns to her and watches her”( ), John Proctor has been “tiptoeing”( ) around Elizabeth in an attempt to not irritate her more. John distances himself from Abigail, making it clear to her that he is no longer interested in any sort of relationship with her. In Act Four, John is accused of doing the Devil’s work by Abigail Williams, because Abigail is she is jealous of Elizabeth, and if she can not have John, no one else should. This conflict arises many times throughout the play, Abigail holds their affair over his head in an effort to keep him in the palm of her hand. Although, John decides to come clean to god, John Proctor confesses to adultery in front of the court, ruining Abigail's plan to expose him for a criminal.
Character Analysis of The Crucible The Crucible is a play about the Salem witch trials, written by Arthur Miller. John Proctor is the protagonist character in the play. He is married to Elizabeth Proctor and they have three small children. Mary Warren was the Procter family maid. She is an important character in the play because she is the girl who gets Elizabeth accused of witchcraft and put in jail.
She murders him on an impulse. Contrastingly, Dora hides what may happen to Calvin though there is surely a chance to do so when she follows him to the hole. Thirdly, Mary and Dora’s reactions to their husbands’ deaths are different. Because Mary does not seem clever enough to cry false tears, it is obvious from the tear Mary sheds for the death that she gets upset without a need to pretend to do so. On the other hand, Dora just says “I do declare (6).” without showing her sorrow or pain.
Once he realises the girls had been lying his opinion becomes the truth, which is proven as truth as the play finishes. One such example is when Mary Warren accuses the girls of lying. While defending themselves the girls scream saying Mary is sending her spirit at them “She’s going to come down she’s walking the beam” (1211). Hale sees no such bird in the courtroom, and Mary Warren keeps telling the girls to stop. With all of this happening Hale sees the girls just lie about seeing spirits.
The stories by Poe and Hawthorn prove that Evil is widely accepted in the fact that humans are corruptible and sinful creatures, that even the most faithful and humble people have a capability to lie, cheat, criticize, and murder without passion. The two stories summarize man 's scope for evil as being boundless and display that evil is present inside all, no matter how good or righteous they may appear to be. Montresor and Brown are motivated to see the evil in everyone because they, themselves, are corruptible and capable of evil. Evil is a force that rules and threatens our world. Evil is a personified power that deceives humans both internally and externally.
However, in Act Three Abigail is brought into the courtroom, along with the other girls, by Danforth to be questioned about what Mary Warren had said about them all lying. She denies that she has lied about the supernatural torture she’s been through, confirming that Mary is lying and appears it had insulted Danforth when he asks her if she’s sure it 's not all imagined. In the middle of Danforth doubting her, Abigail suddenly seems to go into a trance. She is trying turn all the attention from her and John onto Mary so she won’t get exposed or in trouble. She is also doing this as revenge of Mary for turning on her and the girls, so she wants her killed for it.
Having someone go unharmed after jumping head first into the awful and dangerous world of crime and come back without justice served is completely unacceptable. Would you want a killer to run loose just because the law can't touch them? This is how it goes for the characters in ¨And Then There Were None¨ by Agatha Christie. Some characters had justifiable reasons for their actions but other character’s crimes were absolutely unfair and cruel such as Vera Claythorne, Thomas Rogers and William Blore who deserve to be punished on Soldier Island for their crimes. Out of every character in the book, I believe the most guilty for what they did is Vera Claythorne.

Abigail has run away with her taking all Parris’s money. Hale has lost faith in the court, pleads the accused to confess falsely to save their lives, they refuse. Danforth asks Elizabeth to talk John into admitting about being a witch, she agrees. John, troubled by the thought, eventually agrees to confessing. When the court says his admission to witchcraft must be done publicly, Proctor grows angry and retracts his early admission to witchcraft.
The guilt is causing Lady Macbeth to go insane because she is aware “All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand. Oh, Oh, Oh!” (V.i line 42-43). Then again in the beginning of the play she thought washing her hands would erase the murder, but now her conscience keeps remaining her of the sin she committed and the murder is permanently
