    Abigail Abigail and the girls deny everything. Part od their denial is accusation. By shifting the blame onto someone else, they believe that they will not be held accountable for their own sins. Abigail manipulates her way through the play, and even after Mary Warren confessed that the whole story was a pretense, Abigail continues manipulating the court room and the people within it with antics of 'a wind, a cold wind' and 'Oh Heavenly Father, take away this shadow'. In the end she is adamant to convince the court that they were only involved with witchcraft because of Mary Warren, hoping profusely to save her own name.

  • A Dark Moment In Time - 830 words
    A Dark Moment in Time The book, The Crucible by Arthur Miller, is a well-written drama of how scapegoating gone to the extreme can bring about tremendous contention and chaos even among the simplest of people. In this case, the victims of scapegoating were the citizens of Salem, Massachusetts. I feel that Miller did an excellent job on the way in which he conveyed the setting, characters, and plot. The story takes place in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. In their society there is only black and white, right and wrong. Given that the era is the 1600's we know that their lives weren't very complex back then. The people back then mainly farmed and worked from sun up till sun down. Therefore we kn ...

  • America: The Myth Of Equality - 1,313 words
    America: The Myth Of Equality America The Myth of Equality To many, the Unites States serves as the ideal model of democracy for the modern world. Yet, how truly worthy is America of this status? Although it has been said that, "Equality is as American as baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie," one must be extremely critical when analyzing such a statement. By taking a historical perspective to the question of how "equal" American equality actually is, it is simple to recognize how problematic the "Land of the Free" mentality can be. The early America's most prominent thinkers have been sensationalized and given credit for developing a free and equal system. However, one can recognize that their ...

    Crucible The Crucible; underestimated and underrated By Jon State High Student I must be honest in that I had never heard of the movie The Crucible until a few weeks ago when my English teacher had us watch it for a unit we were currently doing on witchcraft. Figuring it was some teachers educational video, I was not very thrilled. My opinion changed abruptly as the movie began with several mischievous girls sneaking out one dark, eerie night in the 1600s. The setting seemed to put me there with the bright, full moon shinning over the calm lake and the cool, misty air seeming to hang in the air like ghosts. The girls ran, looking nervously over their shoulders as if they were committing a de ...

The old saying of history repeating itself is certainly proved true in this state of affairs (no pun intended), proving the timelessness of The Crucible. Key players utilized by Miller can be interpreted into many notorious faces portrayed by the media encircling our fearless leader. Although all comparisons are not players at all, but some merely concepts. The most obvious comparison protrudes from this circumstance like a sore thumb. This is the correlation between President Clinton and John Proctor. The primary similarity in their characters is the act ...
