In a fit a rage I sent my son, the Huntsman, to kill his step-sister.
Abigail was not only one of the girls that got caught dancing in the forest, she was the only girl that drank a blood charm in order to kill John Proctor’s wife, Elizabeth Proctor. The Jealousy and hate she has for Mrs. Proctor is undeniable when she calls her “a bitter woman, a lying cold sniveling woman” (1271) and a “gossiping liar.” Abigail clearly conjured with the devil in hopes that it would get rid of the only obstacle standing in the way of her being with Mr. Proctor. Abigail naively believes that her feeling for John are reciprocated because of an affair that may or may not have happened. With the jealousy of Elizabeth Proctor and desire for John Proctor, we can see that Abgail’s motives for accusing other people , specifically Elizabeth, are completely self-centered. Reverend Parris’ motives come from his
Poor Pentheus was toyed and tinkered with until his very last breath by none other than his own cousin, Dionysus. His choice, as king of Thebes, to repress the all-powerful god not only lost him his kingdom, but ultimately his life. The Bacchae of Euripides is a true battle between the strength of a king and the power of a god. Dionysus showed no mercy, and his power destroyed a family. He sought revenge, and revenge he got.

In both the movie and the poem she attacks and kills thanes in the meadhall because of the lost of her son, grendel. One example of her attacks is on line 411-414 it says “she Took a single victim and fled from the hall, running to the moors, discovered, but her supper assured, sheltered in her dripping claws.
Eurylokhos, one of his crew members, tells him, “Like sheep they followed her, but I saw cruel deceit, and stayed behind. Then all our fellows vanished” (10.283-85). The time he has lost by being in Aiaia and the trauma of nearly losing his men had a tremendous, negative effect on the leader.
