This portrait, however, is somewhat flawed as it appears that in Ann’s case at least, the parents of the afflicted must have a strong influence with the child, as did the other adult accusers. Initially, Ann was fed names by her parents and minister”(-Minerdescent). The girls that were tricked into believing that the accused were guilty were most likely convinced that this was pious and that God wanted them to accuse the innocent. Or the girls might be influenced by their religion, reverends, and ministers. “These evil spirits are all around….
She just has too much on her plate to deal with Kevin’s infidelities. But with that she has to deal with, she notices that her gardening tools have been mysteriously disappearing.

Nina now knows that it is up to her to dig for clue to the mysterious, frustrating, and evil happenings that seem to have descended on her small
Without irony an author’s story will not be as interesting and will not keep the reader or audience’s attention for too long. Above dramatic irony was very sufficient because the reader knew about John’s affair, although Reverend Hale was unaware. This may have grabbed the reader’s attention more and lead them to suspension as to how or if Hale would find out. In my example of verbal irony, it was used in a form of sarcasm when it almost seems as if the outcome was backwards. For instance the innocents should live while the accused should be the one to die.
Hale, defeated, weeps in prayer as Proctor is sent to hung. Reverend Hale's downfall in the novel was his quick assumption that there was witchcraft in Salem. Everyone's fear of the unknown and the chance of witches being present in Salem caused many deaths due to jumping to conclusions. Although he had the best intentions to bring justice to Salem, he made an improper call. He realizes his error and tries with all he has to make it right, but fails.
The Crucible is a good example of when people’s religion and social expectations turns speculation and gossip as evidence that people are possessed. The first encounter the book has with gossip is in Act One. The town is bursting with news about Betty Parris being unresponsive after dancing in the woods with Abigail, Tituba, and Mercy. Reverend Parris is scolding Abigail, claiming the incident with Betty happened because the group of girls met the devil.
Lulu, Fleur’s daughter and Nanapush’s granddaughter, was sent away to a boarding school and this hurt her relationship with her mother. Nanapush is attempting to mend their relationship by explaining what led Fleur to her decision and in order to do so he must tell the whole truth. Pauline, on the other hand, was never trusted to be telling the whole truth and this affected her life to the point where it changed her identity. In The Way to Rainy Mountain by N. Scott Momaday, he clearly portrays the being a part of the Kiowa tribe and the oral tradition that comes along with it has shaped his identity and the way he looks at life itself. In chapter sixteen, Momaday
I am discussing how the Theme of revenge in The Crucible make it both universal and enduring. There is a lot of different ways that revenge is expressed in The Crucible. Every time the girls pretended to be taken over by spirits, or see someone send out their spirit to harm the girls and call out witch on an innocent man or woman because they wanted attention or had a grudge they were holding against someone who had wronged them or they just didn’t like. Just as Abbigail having a grudge against Elisabeth Proctor for being Johns Proctors wife. Abbigail still loved John after their affair they had together and John wouldn’t be with her any longer.
Rather then acknowledging that they didn’t understand events. They said it was the devils work acting through someone in town. For example Abigail’s accusions were all just games to her but it forced people to have to choose death or not going to heaven for lieing.
This was shown when Macbeth saw a child and he heard voices saying “Macbeth shall sleep no more”. Macbeth hear this because the voices are implying that he is no longer innocent and the innocent cannot sleep. Although Lady Macbeth did not commit the crime of killing Duncan, she convinced Macbeth to kill Duncan and came up with the plan. This is why for the same reason as Macbeth, Lady Macbeth has trouble sleeping and starts to
What if there was a society where God was loved the same amount as His wrath is feared? Well, in the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller, the Puritans were a society who loved and feared God equally. They loved and feared Him to a point where they blamed others for their sins. A group of young girls were caught doing witchcraft in the forbidden woods. The girls put the blame on others so they would not be the ones in trouble and the accused Puritans were all innocent of doing witchcraft.
The repressing of Abigail’s emotions causes drama between John Proctor and his wife. Abigail tells Proctor she “wakes and walks about the house as though [she’d] find [him] comin’ through [the] door.” She tells Proctor this trying to lure him into continuing their adulterous affair, but Proctor stops her because he wants to do right. The young girls of Salem are also repressed due to their age. They want to go out and dance with their friends in the woods, but it’s against
The Salem Witch Trials were such a terrible moment in history for the people of Salem, Massachusetts they eventually decided to rename the area to Danvers in hopes to forget what all occurred in that small village. In the end, the Salem Witch Trials could be considered a very lurid moment of history due to the fact that the villagers in that town went so far into their religious beliefs that they actually went along with the idea that the people they grew up with, the people they married, and even their families were involved in
The authorities questioned the girls, and Abigail confessed that the servant Tituba sent her evil spirit upon them, and made them write in the Devil’s book. It only went downhill from there. Soon many were accused, and they would accuse others in order to save their own lives. It only started however,

Understanding. One can only be understood by another who has been in the same scenarios as them. “Under the Rice Moon” by Rhianonn Puck is one of the many stories that greatly emphasize on this thesis of life. Telling the story of a caged bird and its customers, it demonstrates a connection between itself and the sickly young girl, who comprehends his feelings well enough to let him fly. Unlike many of the other clients the bird is bought from, the girl politely takes into consideration what the bird feels, and not just is appearances.
