Revenge is shown throughout Arthur Miller’s The Crucible in very negative ways. Revenge is aimed at enemies, friends, even neighbors once Abigail and her group realized how much power they had, and for greedy self-interest. Everything was done for revenge, and it all started to cover up what Abigail and her sister had done. Abigail Williams used revenge on Elizabeth Proctor, because she hoped to split Elizabeth and John, so her love for John would be acceptable in society. Ann Putnam had accused Rebecca Nurse of the death of her seven babies.
Abigail Williams portrays the human flaw of envy. She tries to do anything to break up the relationship between John Proctor and his wife because she is so jealous. Reverend Parris conveys selfishness through his words and actions. The only thing he cares about is himself and how he is seen in the town. Finally, Thomas Putnam depicts the human flaw of lust for money and power by trying to spread the belief of witchcraft in order to buy more land from those who died.
Another characteristic of that John Proctor displays is boldness .Proctor says "She thinks to dance with me on my wife's grave! "(Miller 1206 ). This conversation happens in the court when proctor is trying to bail his wife out of being hung by telling the court Abigail is a liar. Even though John committed adultery a sin he confesses in attempt to save his wife.John is very bold and tried very hard to tell the court the girls were lying ,but failed .Not only is John Proctor bold ,but a passionate
“The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson signifies a huge conflict of person vs society on how death is looked at in this society. In the story the society is holding a lottery and the winner is stoned to death and seen as a sacrifice for the whole society. In fact, the society feels no pain in administering this custom and has a very weak view on death. One way that Jackson amplifies this way the society views death is through the devastated reaction by Ms. Tessie Hutchinson that occurs when she is getting stoned by the whole village since she just won the annual lottery. The lines read, "‘It isn't fair, it isn't right,’ Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, and then they were upon her.
In the lottery someone picks out a family name and the family name that year was the Hutchinsons. The Hutchinsons were pretty mad and mostly Tessie Hutchinson, who started shouting that this is unfair. Then they proceeded to the final lottery, which was the one based on who will die. Every person in the family got a paper and the person with the black dot was Tessie Hutchinson, who then started shouting this is unfair and everyone started throwing rocks at her until she died. The whole story is ironic itself because the tone of the story is a place that’s perfect.

Stoning also appears specifically in the religious texts of all three Abrahamic religions – Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The villagers are portrayed as simple people throughout the story until the last passage when they become savage beasts carrying out an age-old ritual. When the villagers brutally stone the citizen who "won" the lottery, it displays how their moral values are decimated to the point where they now are cold, heartless beings, no different than the inanimate stones they use for the deadly act every June (Cassel,
