The main story in the book is about how the girl lied to everyone about doing witchcraft to save them selves. They lied specifically about seeing certain people in the town standing next to the devil or there names in the devils book. “Let either of you breath a word or a edge of a word about the other things.. I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you” (Miller, 148) shows just
John’s life at home was cold, his wife had figured out about the affair. I realized John Proctor still loved his wife when he turned down Abagail after she flung herself at him again. He made it very clear to Abagail that he didn’t want to have an affair with her anymore. John Proctor noticed how big of a mistake he had made by cheating on his wife. Abagail Williams was crazy about John and that was soon going to get him and his wife killed.
John Procter went to break things off with Abigail Williams because his wife found out about the affair and she accused Elizabeth of witchcraft hoping that Elizabeth would no longer stand in the way of their “love”. The only problem that interfered with her plan was that John didn’t feel that strongly for Abigail. He cared more deeply for his wife. Whenever John went to testify against Abigail, she accused him as well. Elizabeth Procter and John Procter were hung.
To Abigail, John Proctor should be with her and the only thing keeping John from her is Elizabeth. Since Abigail Williams is motivated by her desire for revenge on Elizabeth, her attempt to kill her leads to her giving up and leaving by the end of the play. To Abigail, Elizabeth Proctor is the only thing keeping John and her from being together and her jealousy possesses her to do anything it
Abigail’s affair with John Proctor, which had ended seven months previous to the beginning of the play, causes her to be blinded by desire. She uses the witch trials to get revenge on anyone she wants, but her main target is to kill Elizabeth Proctor, John’s wife. Abigail bullies girls in her town to be loyal to her, while she feels no loyalty towards them. One of the girls Abigail bullies is Mary Warren, a servant of the Proctor’s. Mary tries to stand up to Abigail and tell everyone it’s all a lie, however, when Abigail threatens her of witchcraft, she gives up and joins Abigail again.
Who Is To Blame? Arthur Miller’s The Crucible takes place in Salem, Massachusetts during the Salem witch trials. Arthur Miller shows how Abigail was the main cause of the all the killing of innocent people of Salem. Her flaws was that she was quick to temper, she was jealous of Elizabeth, and that’s she lust for John Proctor.
She accuses all of the wives in the village basically, she also shouts names of random people and says that they are capable of witchcraft. Need I remind you that these are innocent women that she is putting all of the blame on, but for what? To save herself, if she as innocent as she claims to be then there should be no need for cover ups. She also lied about Mary Warren being a bird that was apparently attacking her and the girls. She was a very manipulative girl throughout the whole trial, she accused many and lied about a lot.
Abigail believed that Proctor actually loved her and she waited every night for him. She was brainwashed to think he would leave his wife for her. The witchcraft accusation came from the beginning of the story when Abigail and the girls were dancing naked in the woods and chanting. She made false accusations that people in the village were worshipping the devil to cover what she had done. Many lives were taken but Abigail had no empathy for anyone who was hanged.
Its believable because he knows it was the right thing to do. “Because I lie and sign myself to lies”(Miller 4.727). Proctor can barely handle the thought of signing his name in a permanent lie that will affect him forever. The act of ripping up the thing that will save his life is also very believable because he wants to prove to elizabeth that he regrets his affair. John can never forgive himself for what he did to Elizabeth so he feel that when he rips the paper Elizabeth with truly forgive him.
In The Crucible written by Arthur Miller, one of the characters who goes by the name of Abigail Williams is the orphaned niece of Reverend Parris, she was once the mistress of John Proctor but Elizabeth Proctor discovered the affair. Abigail is extremely jealous of Elizabeth she ends up using her power that she has in the town to get rid of her and anyone else that discredit her in the past. She will not let go of John Proctor and she is the leader of the girls, she tells lies manipulates the entire town and her friends. This sends nineteen guiltless people to their get hanged in front of the whole town while Abigail is still free of the harm and lies she told. Abigail Williams is selfish and a magnificent liar in Act 1 Abigail says “I never sold myself!
During the Salem Witch Trials in 1690, were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people being accused of witchcraft in Massachusetts. The Crucible, was an interesting book written at this time by Arthur Miller. In The Crucible, there are a couple themes that can be supported in the book. Many may believe that the theme is that Intolerance demanded that religion is to be strictly obeyed because the judges were strict and enforced that religion. On the other hand, the most important theme in the book is that revenge points you into a direction that makes you do and claim things you shouldn't do that would make you regret it later on, you see this going on with Elizabeth and Abigail.
How is it possible for some evil people to be dealing with the devil? Based on the story of The Crucible by Miller, a group of girls were dancing in the woods doing witchcraft. They got caught and attended court, but they refused to tell the truth as they were threaten by Abigail Williams. She started blaming innocent people because she had an affair with John Procter who didn't want her anymore. Judge Danforth believed the group of girls and he demands to execute the innocent people who were accused.
Abigail Williams Destined for Hell "The truth doesn't cost anything, but a lie could cost you anything." This quote by an unknown author perfectly sums up the way Abigail Williams acted and treated people. During the Salem witch trials Abigail Williams was no typical Puritan women. She was seventeen years old and did whatever she wanted.
