    against their neighbors. Many people were involved and there were many issues; however, who deserves the most blame? Abigail Williams was manipulative, selfish, and a liar which makes her the one to blame in my eyes. Before the play begins, Abigail has an affair with John Proctor. This is one of the main issues throughout the whole play. Yes, it takes two people for the affair, but Abigail kept trying to throw herself on John Proctor even after they were done. “Abby, you’ll put it out of mind.…

    Abigail Williams is like the vehicle that drives the story. She is the main antagonist, earning herself the title of the ‘villain’ of The Crucible. At the beginning of the story, Abigail is portrayed as any young girl in the Puritan community. She seems fairly innocent and soft-spoken, however she is the polar opposite. After the ritual with Tituba in the woods, it became very clear that Abigail Williams was a deranged teenage girl stricken with a mad sense of undying admiration for John Proctor…

    I am writing to you to tell you of the many faults in the testimony of Abigail Williams. She is nothing but a liar, a cheater, and a vengeful whore who has managed to accuse my wife, Elizabeth Proctor, and others who stand in her path of hatred. Aye, there is a perfectly reasonable explanation about why Ms. Williams has orchestrated the witch trials and driven the village insane. You should place no faith in her testimony, as her only motives are to manipulate and destroy the village in the…

    Arthur Miller each of the main characters played a role in causing the events that occurred. Abigail Williams and John Proctors affair was probably one of the biggest reasons for the events that occurred in Salem during the year 1692. In The Crucible it was Abigail Williams’s flaws – Dishonesty, Jealousy, and Lust – that led her to be most responsible for the tragedy of the witch-hunt in Salem. Abigail showed dishonesty by saying that Elizabeth Proctor always kept poppets when Elizabeth didn’t…

    am ready to reflect to this day without crying. My husband and I hired a maid named Abigail Williams, she was sixteen years old.

During mass John stepped outside, he was gone for a long time so I went to look for him. I stepped outside of the church and saw him with Abigail giggling, I was upset. I asked him why he had stepped outside and he told me it…

    of the blame for the witch trials, but the one who carries the most weight is Abigail Williams. Abigail, a young, “strikingly beautiful” 17 year old girl, analyzes the situation quickly and composes many diverse approaches to accuse others of compacting with the devil. She tries to curse Elizabeth Proctor in the beginning of the play because Elizabeth’s husband, John, does not accept her feelings. Although Abigail created all the accusations, she still threatened the girls to cooperate with…
