In the play The Crucible, Arthur Miller does an incredible job of portraying the character’s personalities. From the beginning of the play, Miller is able to connect various different situations to dilemmas that are going on with the characters.

Throughout the play, I found myself able to relate to many of Abigail 's characteristics. Abigail Williams and I both let jealousy evoke the best of us, are able to manipulate situations, and tend to be self absorbed.
