Abigail used to be a servant in the Proctor household, but once Goody Proctor found out about John and Abby’s relationship, she fired Abigail. This caused Abigail to have vindictive feelings towards Goody Proctor. Ignorance is displayed through Giles Corey, another character in Act 1. His description at the bottom of page 40 explains how he is an ignorant man. “He didn’t give a hoot for public opinion, and only in his last years-after he had married Martha-did he bother much with the church.
Do the characters get what they deserve in the End? During the novella of mice and men Curley’s wife is alienated, spoken behind her back, called vile names and singled out from the rest of the ranch, since she is the only woman there. Throughout the novella she is constantly giving hints on how lonely she is even in her own marriage, by the end of the book she is accidentally killed and freed from the life she so dearly hated. However, another view on her death could be negative since when she dies she does not get the life she deserves for being kept in a place she doesn’t want to stay or even she does deserve her death since she is vile for not committing to her marriage vows by being a coquette. Curley’s wife is clearly a very unhappy
She shows that she is determined by trying her best to condemn Elizabeth Proctor to death just to be with her husband John Proctor. She threatens to death any girl who goes against her revealing that she is extremely controlling. Abigail is also a very dishonest person because she steals all of her Uncle Reverend Parris money, leaving him penniless. This also shows that she is ungrateful because he took her in, and now does this to him. This quote “[…] Let either of you breathe a word and I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you.” Shows her desperation and truly violent mind while she tries to control the mistake she’s made, but to control this mistake she must control those around her who know of it.
The Capulets And Montagues: The Ones To Truly Blame Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy where the four teenagers die because of a feud going on between two noble families. Their death is a mix everyone’s fault, but it is mainly the Capulets and Montagues fault. Although the two families thought they were doing good for their children, they were hateful towards each other, too stubborn to try to resolve the feud, and Lord and Lady Capulet were very hard on Juliet when she refused to marry Paris. The Capulets and Montagues thought the feud wouldn’t do any harm, but the hate towards each other caused the four teenagers to die. For instance, Shakespeare says: Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay or scene, From
On the other hand, when Juliet was in desperate need for help, the Nurse didn’t do her very much good. Juliet’s parents were both disappointed in her and threatening to disown her because she refused to marry Count Paris. When she confronted the Nurse for help and advice, the Nurse told her that she should break the law and marry a second man. More than that, she wasn’t concerned with Juliet’s true feelings but rather with the fact that she may lose her job if Juliet continues to refuse. If she had done what was in Juliet’s best interest, she would have looked into the situation more and realized that forcing her into a marriage could have dire
She avoids Curley and seemingly only enterers into the relationship in order to leave an unpleasant, constraining home life, although she now regrets it. She does not belong on the ranch, however, and is ill at ease and out of place in this violent, brutal world that is dominated by men. Her death, even if we argue that is partly her own fault because she leads Lennie on allowing him to “pet” her hair, makes her yet more of a tragic victim. Whilst the men want revenge for her death, no one mourns for her and she is left alone in the barn with Candy, who is equally angry with her for spoiling his dreams. The final description of Curley’s wife suggests that in death she is finally at peace as she is abandoned like a rag doll in the hay, which is truly tragic and
She had people fooled to believe that she had god in her and she could see the evil in people and could tell if they were in witchcraft. One person after another she had them hung. People so clueless of her intentions saw her as a saint for getting rid of the “evil” in the town. In the end of the play Abigail’s reputation was soon found out about, she knew people would come back and accuse her of murder so she ran away with her uncle’s money and Mercy Lewis. In contrast with Abigail Williams Elizabeth Proctor was not your ideal woman.
It seemed like Archie was never able to make his own decisions, and that she was always the one in control. It is fate that she decided to leave him, because inevitably Archie seems like he has regained his life and is better-off. Ophelia’s whole family is also crazy and very vulgar towards Archie, blaming him for all of Ophelia’s problems. In the novel Ophelia’s grandmother was speaking and said, “…he take-a her mind, he take-a the blender, he take-a the stereo – he take-a everything except the floorboards. It make-a you sick…” (Smith 9).
In the end, it is both fate and misfortune that are driving them to their untimely deaths. Although some characters may contribute to their bad luck, no single person is held accountable. The enduring quarrel between the two families proves that Romeo and Juliet were never supposed to be together in the first place. The Capulet family is very conventional, and would want their only daughter to marry someone of who they approve. The arranged marriage between Juliet and Paris is just another obstacle hindering Romeo and Juliet from having a future together.
“Please don’t,” he begged. “Oh! Please don’t do that George’ll be mad” (91). Curley’s wife’s death was more her fault then Lennie’s because she wanted him to touch her hair because it was so softt. But then she panicked and Lennie doesn’t know his own strength and just kept holding on.
