The Crucibleprimarily concentrates on characters that have external conflicts with differentpeople. Arthur Miller made The Crucibleplaywright in 1953. The title has an importance related with differentsituations that in the long run lead up to something new. The primarycharacters all through the story are John Proctor, Elizabeth Proctor, AbigailWilliams, Tituba, alongside numerous different characters. The Crucible is about witchcraft taking full power over the townand everybody ends up insane. Hysteria is a theme amongst the most importanttopics of the play, and Abigail is the character that best embodies through heraccusations of Elizabeth Proctor’s practice of witchcraft and necessarily sendsher to jail.
Abigailbrought up the immoral acts of others with the intention of distracting the awarenessfrom her own wrongdoings. While Abigail and the girls were out in the woods,she wanted to enchant a hex to possibly kill Elizabeth Proctor so that shecould have another chance with John Proctor. Abigail mentioned in the play thatElizabeth is “blackening my name in the village” and “She is telling lies aboutme! She is a cold, sniveling woman, and you bend to her!” Although,Abigail feigned anger at Elizabeth Proctor for harming her notoriety, the effectivefeeling is envy of Elizabeth for her marriage to John Proctor. She falls backon being foolish by verbally abusing to question John’s thoughts.Abigail’sintentions are extremely conceited at first at that point then into something horriblewhen she blames Elizabeth for being a witch and harming her.
Proctor then callsAbigail out in court, knowing it could potentially lead to him being dead.Proctor desperately calls out “I beg you, sir, I beg you…. see her what she is….”He repeatedly and endlessly talks about how Abigail “thinks to dance with” him onhis “wife’s grave” and that it is a “whore vengeance.” Nobody trusts him until that it is much pastthe point of no return. The girls were convinced by Abigail that there werewitches nearby. Abigail is the instigator of the greater part of this, andwithout her no allegations other than Tituba and Mrs.
Putnam would have beenleveled against anybody around.Whileit might be unjust to hold Abigail responsible for everything that occurred inthese trials, it is reasonable to say that she abused a suspicious and blameridden society that was terrified of being used by Satan as witchcraft. Abigaildid this to benefit from it and gain influence over others.
