Cassandra is one of the few characters in the play who can see with clarity. She has been given the gift of telling prophecies, but has also been cursed so that no one believes her. While standing outside the house, Cassandra begins to tell the prophecy of Agamemnon’s death to the chorus of men. These men do not believe her, and just think that she has gone mad. While the chorus of men are unable to believe Cassandra due to the curse, the men are also ‘blind’ and do not suspect Clytaemestra of wanting to kill her husband.
Tituba, the slave of Reverend Parris, is the first to admit to dancing with the devil. Based on the background knowledge of the time, slaves were not considered part of the class system, so she was not valued as a community member. Tituba is conscious that she is in danger, “she is also very frightened because her slave sense has warned her that, as always, trouble in this house eventually lands on her back” (Miller, pg. 6). Tituba attempts to tell the truth about Abigail when she says, “You beg me to conjure!
Her high school “hookup”, Eddie Oakley, is mostly an extension of her already existing feelings of isolation. Their relationship begins as a way for Rose to cope with her loneliness, after her ability destroys most of her close relationships with people (Bender 156). He continues to be her stress release but has no understanding of her emotions, calling her the “tank” because of her stoicism. There is no power dynamic here. Rather, they both use each other exclusively for their own personal gain (Bender 132).

A volunteer.”(242) This is represented as the Dust Witch is in a hurry to close her act because she knows she is in danger of being killed, but instead of closing the act Charles Holloway volunteers to participate in it allowing the act to continue. This portrays situational irony because the Witch’s plan to close the act didn’t follow through which shows how much she underestimated Charles Halloway and the boys. Additionally, dramatic irony is also profoundly used throughout the novel. Firstly, dramatic irony is conveyed when Bradbury writes “The crescent moon I have marked on the bullet is not a crescent moon. It is my own smile.”(251) He recounts this as Charles Halloway is about to shoot the Dust Witch with the bullet that is going to end her life.
Then looking back at the man, she said, ‘Yeah, thats Cole’s little sister, even though she doesn’t look like a sister’ ‘’(p.93). This shows the sort of discrimination that goes on inside a family like this. Even though Birdie is really Coles sister, Carmen has sort of a disgust with her. Carmen frowns upon Birdie because of her white skin, and doesn’t care for her. She puts her attention more towards Cole because of her dark skin feature.

Abigail goes to great lengths to get what she wants,
For example, Betty Parris’s character was slightly changed to add drama to the play. In the play, Betty Parris was the daughter of Reverend Parris. In the beginning of the play Betty was unconscious and no one knew what was wrong with her. Abigail Williams, Betty’s cousin, claimed that Betty and many other girls were dancing in the woods and when Reverend Parris caught them in the act Betty was afraid of getting in trouble so she pretended to be sick. To justify what the girls had did they claimed that there was witchcraft involved which made them do what they did.
