Now from those brief descriptions we can already see the difference in the characterization of all three characters. Although Abigail’s character appears to be one that is instantly dislikeable because of her selfish ways, she is by no means stupid. She knows how to manipulate other people into acting the way that she wants them to act and her control over them is what makes her an effective antagonist. Mrs. Putnam on the other hand appears not to have been as well educated as Abigail. She instantly jumps to the conclusion that witchcraft is afoot, which is apparent when she states “Mark it for a sign, mark it!” when Betty thrashes in her “trance.” She is also paranoid by the fact that there must be some paranormal reason as to why her babies have perished.
The farcical play, Boeing Boeing at the University of Arizona’s Marroney Theater delivered nonstop entertainment on September 22nd 2013. The play was written by Marc Camoletti and directed by Brent Gibbs, yet the success of the play was only possible through the collaborative effort of everyone involved.

The play took place exclusively in Bernard’s apartment living room.

They often show an inordinate naivety about the world tending to land them in trouble. Despite princess status, they still make excellent housewives, as Snow White shows keeping house for many (male) dwarves. In short, they display the characteristics required by women before equal rights. Hawthorne attempts to imbue Phoebe with a higher purpose and morality but in the end only gives her characteristics displayed by these Disney princesses. Indeed despite Hawthorne telling us to laugh at and ridicule the ugly Hepzibah, she displays a far greater sense of good and a much more complex character than Phoebe.
Hawthorne also makes the scaffold a very important main stage for the characters. A. “Those who had before known her, and had expected to behold her dimmed and obscured by a disastrous cloud, were astonished, and even startled, to perceive how her beauty shone out, and made a halo of the misfortune and ignominy in which she was enveloped.” (Hawthorne 50) B. “Thus she shal be a living sermon against sin […]” (Hawthorne 58) C. “After the kiss on the scaffold, Pearl, reconciled to the conditions of life, will not ‘forever do battle with the world, but be a woman in it.’(p.386)” (MacLean 14) D. “The minister who had once sinned but would sin no more died on the scaffold exposing his guilt.” (Bell) IV. Finally, at the end of the book, Hawthorne makes Hester go back to Boston in order to make the reader feel different things about her.

When Miss Lottie Passes away, she regrets everything she ever did to Miss Lottie. In this story Lizabeth is very rude, for example when her and her friends pick on Miss Lottie, Lizabeth doesn’t care how it makes Miss Lottie feel.
She Loves Him, She Loves Him Not One’s natural ability is to love things that are beautiful, whether it is a car, a house, or a person. However even something as beautiful and delicate as a rose can be hurtful in the end. Even though Fitzgerald makes Daisy a character worthy of Gatsby’s attention and love, in the end she shows her true colors. She is merely a selfish, shallow, and a hurtful woman. This makes her the most destructive character in The Great Gatsby.
Curley’s wife emerges as a relatively complex and interesting character. Although her purpose is rather simple in the book’s opening pages—she is the “tramp,” “tart”, and “bitch” that threatens to destroy male happiness and longevity—her appearances later in the novella become more complex. When she confronts Lennie, Candy, and Crooks in the stable, she admits to feeling a kind of shameless dissatisfaction with her life. Her vulnerability at this moment and later—when she admits to Lennie her dream of becoming a movie star—makes her utterly human and much more interesting than the stereotypical vixen in fancy red shoes. However, it also reinforces the novella’s grim worldview.
Emma helps out around the house, treats friends and foes with respect and conducts herself reasonably well. It is obvious to everyone that she is undoubtedly nicer than her devious counterpart. Sutton's father, Ted, jokingly asks her, "Who are you and what have you done with my daughter?" The show seems to suggest how bad and corrosive lying can be, with several good characters talking about how important it is to be honest and truthful, particularly in regards to one's family and friends. Nevertheless, those very same good characters lie to each other constantly, even while understanding how two-faced they're being.
