After Granny discovered Ella reading Bluebeard to Richard, she screams in disgust and Richard interrupts , “ “But, granny, she didn’t finish,” I protested, knowing that I should have kept quiet.

When Abigail is in the courtroom, she could get asked the most simple question by the judge and she would take it way out of proportion. Abigail just wants Proctor all to herself. With Abigail's "friends" she is always angry with them and constantly threatening them; just so they will not tell the truth about Abigail Williams and John Proctor.
Abigail said “She hates me, uncle, she must, for I would not be her slave. It’s a lying, cold, sniveling woman, and I will not work for such a woman!”(Said by Abigail, From The Crucible, act1, page12) Because, the standard to judge one person whether good or bad, is whether he gives a hand to others or hit a person when he is down.

She is a cowardly girl that afraid to shoulder the responsibility.
Confused and hurt, Montag thought, “suddenly she was so strange he couldn’t believe he knew her at all”(Bradbury 39). Montag also changes a lot after that fateful night.

One of the reasons Captain Beatty gave for books being banned was that they make people unequal. In his mind, books are
When someone is full of pride, they cannot love others for who they are and tend to make bad decisions. The narrator only cared about himself and wanted to kill Doodle for his own personal gain.

She continuously mocks her, doing things that make Hester feel bad and frustrated. Pearl is Hesters silent antagonist and she might even be better at keeping Hester from getting what she wants more than Roger.

The reader is able to see how uncomfortable she is with the fact that this happened to Wilson and that she does not stand for the oppression of herself or the women around her.
