Not only does she deny doing witchcraft, she also manages to accuse Tituba of having full responsibility while she is the one who starts the whole thing. At the end of the chapter, she also frames some other citizens, saying that she sees them with the Devil. Her affair with John Proctor is furthermore exposed to the audience. Betty, Reverend Parris’s daughter, reveals that Abigail attempts to drink blood as a charm in order to kill Elizabeth Proctor, who is John Proctor’s wife. Moreover, when Reverend Parris confronts Abigail about being fired by Elizabeth Proctor, Abigail denies any wrongdoings.
Compare the presentation of female characters in The Crucible, Othello and Enduring Love Arthur Miller’s The Crucible is a play set in Puritanical New England, 1692. Miller wrote the play as an allegorical statement against McCarthyism in the US. Abigail, one of the central female characters, was the previous mistress of John Proctor; the play’s protagonist, portrayed as a tragic, noble hero and therefore Abigail, who was his mistress who he no longer has feelings for, and causes him trouble, is bound to be seen in an inverted light to the one John Proctor is seen in. Certainly Arthur Miller goes to great length to use Abigail as the anti-hero to John Proctor’s noble, almost incorruptible (if it weren’t for his affair) figure. Miller takes the “woman scorned” approach to his character of Abigail.

A common worldwide value that Harwood rejects as the normality in life with her poems. Harwood battles against the traditions that she believes support this downgrading by continually returning to the issue. In “Home of Mercy” there is a line in the poem. Here I believe she is talking about the Magdalene Asylums. It was a place of slave labor laundries from the 18th to the late-20th centuries to house "fallen women", a term used to imply female sexual promiscuity.
Example: I’ll either get an A in this class, or I’ll flunk (doesn’t acknowledge other possibilities).

He was also given a gun but he refused to use it to stop the violence. He believed he should have used Martin’s letter to prove that the three men did not kill Kinkaid. Mr. Davies took a leadership role to argue that the three were not guilty and he thought it was his responsibility to convince everyone of their innocence. The difference between leadership and responsibility is Mr. Davies believed that because he assumed leadership it was his responsibility to finish the task successfully. When the men were hung, Mr. Davies thought he had failed at his responsibility and was a poor leader.
To what extent is Desdemona presented as a tragic figure in Act 4 Scene 3 and Act 5 Scene 2? How could an audience react to her death? On the one hand, Desdemona is presented as a strong female character; publically defying her father by marrying Othello, arguing with Iago regarding the role of women and breaking free of the gender expectations of a woman in the 16th century by denying her privileged but sheltered life to marry a black man of her own choosing, a hugely rebellious act at a time when women were seen as lesser and were expected to obey their fathers and then husbands unconditionally. However, on the other hand she is portrayed as naive, and full of doubts and fears. She does not stand up to Othello when it really matters, and accepts her own death far too easily, even to go as far as selecting the bed sheets she is to be murdered on.
Analytical Essay on the individual living in Salem in The Crucible Being a part of the Salem community was something dangerous because no matter what you did, you were bound to be accused of witchcraft. In The Crucible, it starts out with Tituba being accused, Reverend Parris’ slave, because of her coming from Barbados, being of low social status in the town, and because the girls needed someone to blame it on. Tituba was then being whipped, so she needed to accuse someone else. In this case she was accusing out of fear for her life; she then accuses Sarah Good and Sarah Osborne. These two women were two poor women of low social status and here they are being accused.
She believes that feminists and feminism attacks marriage and women who believe in marriage and simply being a good mother and wife. An example O’Beirne uses to express these attacks is an excerpt from a book call “The Future of Marriage” by Jessie Bernard. In the excerpt Bernard says that marriage simply holds women back: “Being a housewife makes women sick.” “To be happy in a relationship which imposes so many impediments on her, as traditional marriage does, women must be slightly mentally ill.” O’Beirne says that the feminist movement did nothing but confuse gender roles and weaken the family structure that was established. I personally am not quite sure which side to take so I’m sitting on the fence. I believe that feminists and their movement did do a great deal of good for our society as a whole.
He also wouldn't name any people who he thought were "witches" because he didn't want innocent people to die. I would say that John Proctor’s final act was definitely one of excessive pride. To lose your life in exchange for remaining all of the goodness in your name is a step too far. The title of the play “The crucible" relates to the theme of the play because many, many people had to take the severe test of the courts, their lives were hanging on a thread, and many of these threads
