When he says “meant”, it puts stress on the word and it’s meaning- he knows he is failing to do so. Their conversations are restricted only to the local happenings and their children. Elizabeth wants John to go Abigail and “tell her she’s a whore. Whatever promise she may sense – break it.” He grows angry at her suggestion because he feels she calls him “base” and having no moral standards. However, I think that Elizabeth is merely trying to find common
Matthew McHale 301 Assessment. Task B Case study You are a social care worker and a service user, Hannah, tells you that she is unhappy taking her new medication. She thinks she does not need it and so she is throwing it away. You know from her care plan that Hannah does need to take the medication regularly and gets confused.

He didn’t want everyone to believe that. Mary Warren is dishonourable to the court because she has lied in court, and is an unreliable witness. She is also dishonourable to John Proctor because she says she is on his side, but during act three, she decides that Abigail was right all along and she tries to go back onto Abi’s side. However john proctor pulls her back. Abigail is a very dishonourable person.
George is immediately disgusted by this ‘that’s a dirty thing to tell around’ and we can already see a negative view of Curley’s wife forming in his mind. The fact that she has no name is significant as ‘Curley’s wife’ implies that she is merely an object or a possession of Curley’s and not someone with her own identity. Another way of looking at this is that Steinbeck is highlighting how insignificant she is as a person to the other men on the ranch and he could be trying to make us feel a bit sorry for her even at this stage. We are told that she ‘got the eye’ which makes her seem promiscuous and not like a very good wife. George uses the phrase ‘Curley’s got ant in his pants’ to put the blame completely onto his wife for his aggressive behaviour.
Danforth also listens to Giles Corey story about how Thomas Putnam greed for some land had caused his daughter to condemn George Jacobs.But since Giles Corey refuses to state the name of his witness, Judge Danforth does not accept his evidence.

Then Proctor calls her a whore and states that they slept together. Judge Danforth agrees with Proctor to call Elizabeth out to see if she confirms her husband’s story.Elizabeth denies and Danforth drops all the evidence.
Holden gives a fake name so he wouldn’t have to elaborate on his life to this woman. He also might’ve given this name to avoid being embarrassed if her son knew who she was really sitting next to. The main reason Holden lies to her is because he’s bored and he has a skill for lying. But I also think he lies to her to make her feel good about her son. Holden stops lying to her because he states that he can go on lying for hours but just didn’t feel like it.
She asked Phoenix was she deaf as she took a moment to respond and the nurse identifies Phoenix as “Old aunt Phoenix.” The nurse also gets frustrated with Phoenix and her memory loss. All of the disrespect in the doctor’s office is trying to show Phoenix that she must pay in order for her grandson to be healthy. She knows that if she doesn’t get the medicine that he is going to die and she loves him too much to allow that occur. Phoenix also suffers loneliness during her journey. For instance she moves like the “pendulum in a grandfather clock,” which steadily marks time alone.
A repressed women with a desire to be free and happy. The relation between when the woman in the wallpaper and the narrator when the woman is behind bars symbolizes the narrator and how she is trapped in this tiny room with a husband who controls her every word and actions. He undermines her in almost every way. For example the narrator says on page 590 “I am afraid, but i don't care- there is something strange about that house-I can feel it, I even said so to John one moonlight evening, but he said what i felt was a drought, and shut the window.” This shows how john undermines her fears as just a simple shiver from the window being open when she is trying to explain how she doesn't like the place because shes
He seems very queer sometimes, and even Jennifer has an inexplicable look.” (246), “I know she was studying that pattern, and I am determined that nobody shall find it out but myself!” (247) Her obsession with the wallpaper gains momentum because she wasn’t allowed to change it. At the end, John faints when he breaks into the room and sees his wife in the psychotic
In Proctors case it is opposite, he objects to the girls false deeds and no one believes him because the majority of people do not. Even Hale says it may well be God damns a liar less than he that throws his life away for pride, Proctor took a risk to see if he could get some people to believe him but the majority of the crowd did not, so it could not be true according to them. John Proctor, our main character, is in desperate need of forgiveness at the start of the play, but his wife seems torn about whether to grant it, Proctor finally decides to come clean and clearly realizes that Abigail is a whore and a
