“The Crucible” helps the reader understand that society persecutes innocent people just like during the Red Scare. In “The Crucible,” it talks about how people felt okay to accuse people they didn’t like of
1) “They carried the soldier’s greatest fear, which was the fear of blushing. Men killed, and died, because they were embarrassed not to. It was what had brought them to the war in the first place, nothing positive, no dreams of glory or honor, just to avoid the blush of dishonor. They died so as not to die of embarrassment” (O’Brien 20).
Before the town fled with stories of witch-craft, there once was a young women who worked for a family but fell in love with the wife's husband. That husband turned out to be John Proctor and that lovely young lady, of course turned out to be Abigail Williams. For some say it was really the start of it all. In the eyes of Abigail, she is destined to be with John Proctor. She would do anything to make him hers, even if that required killing his wife Elizabeth Proctor to do so.John Proctor is not such a bad guy, but his only problem was the fact he fell into temptation of lust. Which causes Abigail to believe he loves her. Once Mr. Proctor denies her love for him multiple times, she turns into the eyes of witch-craft. That ladies and gentlemen is what catches our attention on her blaming Tituba. Abigail builds up her lies on the people of Salem until she finds the right moment to be able to claim Elizabeth Proctor as a
The chapter continues with the two boys, Tom and Huck, carefully walking through the path. They walk past the kitchen, where they try to avoid Jim, Miss. Watson’s slave. Jim hears them and comes to investigate. The two boys are hiding, while Jim comes close to them, but doesn’t see them. Jim decides to stay in that position until he hears the noise again. While Huck is debating whether he should scratch his nose, Jim falls asleep. Tom tells Huck about Jim, that he is respected by the other slaves, for going against the devil. But Jim had begun to become cocky for seeing the devil and fighting the witches.
Abigail immediately starts to point fingers, demonstrating that unjust people or pride will attempt to break them down. Another example is when Abigail told the court “She makes me drink blood” (Miller 1260). Abigail becomes nervous as the tables are turned, so she makes Mary go crazy and ultimately side with her. Mary siding with Abigail included Mary is telling the town that John was a witch. So, ultimately Abigail impacted the whole town by committing fraud. Mary went into the court strong and ready to confess, but Abigail being an unjust person tore her down. Throughout the entire play Abigail is throwing people under the bus in order to save herself. Another way Abigail makes herself look more believable is by pinning the townspeople against one another. “Mister Reverend, I do believe somebody be witchin’ these children” (Miller 1260). She makes Tituba so scared where to the point she started lying about others. Abigail will do absolutely anything to make herself look believable. When John Proctor is arguing about his wife going to jail, Abigail makes a threat: “Abb’ll change lechery on you Mr. Proctor”
“They did not celebrate Christmas, and a holiday from work meant only that they must concentrate even more upon prayer.” Act 1, pg. 4
Abigail starts to accuse several people in Salem soon after Tituba in a desperate ploy to get attention, that soon gets blown out of proportion and becomes a massacre of innocent people.
Abigail is the character that no ones wants to be in a story. She is most of the responsibility for the girls going with Tituba to the woods. Then after Paris finds them, she tries to fake her behavior because if she doesn’t it will show her affair with Proctor if she confesses to casting a spell on Elizabeth Proctor. Betty calls Abigail out by saying “you did it, you did! You drank a charm to kill John Procter’s wife! You drank a charm to kill Goody Proctor! (Miller, 19). Abigail lies first to hide her affair but then she starts lying to prevent being accused of witchcraft. To keep all the attention off of herself she starts accusing other people of witchcraft. Abigail is heartless because she thinks nothing of just accusing people of witchcraft which will send them to their death. Abigail was a very deceiving when she spoke to anyone about anything throughout the story. Abigail was lying at the court case they had durning the Salem Witch trials, she was trying to get everyone to believe that Mary’s Warren was a bird coming to get her, she says, “But God made my face; you cannot want to tear my face. Envy is a deadly sin, Mary” (Miller 106). Abigail was lying that who court case so she didn’t get in trouble, she wanted to save herself even if it meant that others were going to die.
There are multiple details that stood out as particularly true to life in my view. One was the nariartator that it is telling the story/ his view point main character mentions what check out aisle number. It mentions how the three girls looked. The character payed attention to how the girl that seem to be the leader was walking saying “she came down a little hard on her heels, as if she didn’t walk in her bare feet much” this quote helps you picture how the person and might help picture what the girl was walking like. He gave details to where he was and what he was doing when the three girls was doing. He mentions that “I’m in the third check-out slot with my back to the door so that I didn’t see them until they had reach the bread” this helps the reader to set up an mental image of the store as they are reading.
Later on Hale asks Abigail if they were conjuring spirits, she then says that it was all Tituba's doing. Hale finds Tituba and asks her a serious of questions, and Tituba denies all of them. This puts Hale at a crossroad, Abigail later continues to blame Tituba and says that she was forced to drink blood. Tituba responds with saying that Abigail basically forced her into conjuring spirits in the wood. Again, Hale is at a crossroad, not knowing what side to take. In an attempt to save herself from the punishment for witchcraft, Abigail begins to name all of the girls that are supposedly witnesses, her actions officially spark the trials. Reverend Parris sends for the Marshal to help get this resolved.
Paragraph 1 tone : He seems nervous about this trip He says ,“We’ve all been up since midnight, starting our predive checks after a couple of restless hours of sleep, and the whole team is running on adrenaline. These are the roughest conditions I’ve dived in so far on the expedition” The way he says that they’ve been up the whole night doing checks without sleep and how this is one of the roughest conditions he has dived in so far just gives the sense of nervousness if he will make the challenge.
1.) The ending did not surprise me; I think it may have if we hadn’t discussed it in class. I think I would have been very surprised and confused, if I hadn’t known the ending prior to reading it.

She is sent into a spiral of confusion for her lust of John Proctor and is sent by her beast to do irrational thinking and send out a spell asked of by Abigail to Tituba who's is the creator of the demons within herself and others. The actions to come from Abigail will not only get her sent out of the Proctor house but only swirl like a hurricane and suck others into the eye to grab there attention and escalate the true happenings of false accusations to behold the uncertainty of others in the village. Although Abigail did go to face her demon John himself but had failed to overcome her most desired need of him to be with her she did not have the strength inside her to overcome the fear of rejection in the end which lead her to think irrationally when this demon walks in her body like a devils play ground to do as he pleases so she may have her most desired possession. No matter what the demon wants what it wants so she lies and proclaims false hoods on her fellow citizens and obtains followers to fall to her own cult which these demon uses to its advantage to cause the deaths of many citizens to gets it way. Although Abigail is still within the demon has taken control her worst fear has happened proctor no longer wants her so the demons reign has ended. She runs from the false hoods that
