He accused Putnam of prompting his daughter to accuse their fellow townsmen of witchery, like George Jacobs, in order to seize more land. He explains to Danforth that, “If Jacobs hangs for a witch he forfeit up his property- that’s law! And there is none but Putnam with the coin to buy so great a price” (96). The tension between Corey and Putnam shows the tension between people in the town, but it also exemplifies the way they manipulated people in order to receive power for themselves. Corey’s claims show that Putnam tried to manipulate George Jacobs by having his daughter accuse him and have him hang, and he would buy Jacobs's land, which is his symbol of power and
Ofelia’s Last Fairy Tale: A Dying Wish El Laberinto del Fauno is a film directed by and conceived from the mind of Guillermo del Toro. It is set in the events after the Spanish civil war in 1944 when rebels are still rejecting the Fascist regime. The tale starts with the journey of Ofelia and her mother Carmen. They are conversing about how Ofelia is taken by her fantasy books to which her mother says, “Aren’t you too old to be filling your head with such nonsense?”. This critique’s intent is to establish that Ofelia’s world of enchanted folks was a dying kid’s last attempt to spin a happy ending in her own fairy tale.
After saying these things he admits to having an affair with Abagail Williams. He was wishing this would show that Abagail was just jealous and wanted to get rid of his wife to have him for herself. Now John Proctor was going to be put to death for being an adulterer and his wife fore practicing witch craft. John proctor had to confess to being an adulterer on paper and it was to be hung on the church doors in the middle of Salem. He didn’t like the way they were going to give him a bad name if he confessed.
One of the people she accused was Elizabeth Proctor, John Proctors wife. John and Abigail had an affair and Abigail was upset because she loves John and is now trying to get rid of his wife, which would allow her to replace Elizabeth. Similarly, Chillingworth from The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne also shows awful malice. Chillingworth is a well educated man who was obsessed with being intelligent. To gain more knowledge he goes overseas to study and becomes shipwrecked, leaving his wife Hester alone.
While also saying that Proctor came at her during the night with a book to sign herself to the devil. Mary didn’t want to be thrown into jail because of Abigail so she rather Proctor deal with Elizabeth being there, and have himself thrown in jail while she saved herself from the
Proctor knows that Abigail has accused his wife to try and get her killed so that Abigail can be with Proctor. The text states, “She thinks to dance on my wife's grave!” Abigail is deceiving the court by telling them that Goody Proctor is a witch and the court believes her since Abigail is believed to be a victim of witchcraft. As the play continues to Mary Warren is trying to tell the court that Abigail has been lying. To avoid getting in trouble Abigail uses her influence and lies that Mary sent spirits to attack her.
This is one of the main parts where the hypocrisy comes into play within the story. Mrs. Hutchinson did not mind participating in the lottery until she became affected by it. Even when she is making a fuss about the lottery being unfair, her own husband tried to stop her by forcing the piece of paper from her hands in order to get the stoning ceremony over with. He did not take up for her the same way she took up for
Abigail is accusing Mary Warren of being a witch just to keep all the attention off of her: “Mary, please don’t hurt me” (Abigail)! Now that the truth has been released Abigail is really worried that everything will be ruined if it is: “Mr.Danforth, he is lying” (Abigail)! I believe these sentences are my favorite from the story because things are heating up even more since the truth about the affair has been released in the court. Abigail Williams, a dynamic character, changes by the end of the play from bad to worse: Hathorne is astonished by Abigail’s disappearance and taking parris money to get away: “she have robbed you” (Hathorne)? Danforth now stating to know of Abigail’s disappearance doesn’t really seem to care: ‘My daughter tells me how she heard them speaking of ships l last week, and tonight i discover my- my strongbox is broke into” (Parris).
In Rebecca, as a ghost, she haunts the mansion, and her presence torments the heroine after her marriage to Maxim, the heroine’s wife. She was the ominous feeling lingering and wafting throughout the house. The narrator explains, “At any moment she might come back into the room, and she would see me there, sitting before her open drawer, which I had no right to touch," (Maurier, 86). The presence of Rebecca was very prominent in this moment that it was as if she was away on vacation about to appear, thus provoking shared fear between the heroine and the reader. In comparison, The Lovely Bones supernatural elements are similar since the main character is also a ghost.

The Phantom Origins Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus was one of the best and most righteous centurions that ever livedthere ever were, but instead of going to Elysium they accidentally dropped him into the abyss of Tartarus. He traveled in the Tartaruspit (Tartarus actually means pit) for hundreds of years until he finally found the door to the mortal world. When he went through it, he was restarted because he didn’t belong to Tartarus so the world was confused. Publius had been brought back to life many times before as a baby into bodies like George Washington, but this time he was brought back as a man at the age of forty-five with longish, black hair and blood-red eyes. Publius had many powers that he wasn’t...
John Proctor fears his name’s identity, which is evident near the end of the play when he resists Deputy Danforth and Reverend Hale’s posting his name on the church door, accusing him of witchcraft (IV.712-717). John Proctor is Elizabeth Proctor’s husband, who involved in an affair with Abigail Williams when she was still working as the Proctor’s maid. Elizabeth fires Abigail, once she realizes her maid and her husband’s covert relationship. Elizabeth’s dismissal causes Abigail to become very angry, for women had little power at the time, let alone unmarried women like herself. By playing her Mafia-like wailing and doll piercing games and forcing the other Salem girl to participate, Abigail determines to terminate Elizabeth and keep John for herself (460-473).
Viktor Frankl once said “When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.” this quote demonstrates the theme of character changing in extreme situations and it is one that continually comes up in The Luck of Roaring Camp and The Outcasts of Poker Flat. In both of these stories characters develop from criminals and dirty people to heroes and respectable men and women. When Mother Shipton is faced with death she sacrifices herself to save Piney, and when faced with the tremendous task of raising a baby the men of Roaring Camp start to act better.
