    would not; if tongs of fire were singeing you you would not!” (Miller 138). This proclamation portrays the strength of Elizabeth’s loyalty and the things she would go through to remain loyal to John. “Elizabeth lies to Danforth to save Proctor’s name and ironically condemns him as a perjurer.” (Sundstrand 2). Elizabeth is loyal to what she believes John would want her to say and attempts to save his good name. Unfortunately, in doing this she condemns John as well as others and extends Abigail’s reign as ringleader. “The final scene together is deeply touching, as we see Elizabeth declare her love, and her willingness to sacrifice that love by allowing Proctor to die rather than relinquish his integrity.” (Abbotson 3). Elizabeth’s lie due to her loyalty tarnishes John’s reputation in the community enough so that John’s integrity will not allow him to sign his name so that he might retain a good name. Each event displays the impact of Elizabeth’s loyalty on John as well as the plot of the book, both leading to the death of many, including John Proctor. This desire to preserve a good name to pass onto his family displays the deep loyalty that John Proctor has for his family. When the officers from the court come to the Proctor house to arrest Elizabeth, John and Elizabeth are fighting due to John being afraid to admit to the court that he had an affair with Abigail. His loyalty to Abigail as well as his integrity portrays John as extremely loyal. He physically relinquished…

    As already outlined, the first phase of Fanon’s model is demonstrated in Abram’s journey to Egypt. Abram leaves the land of Haran because there is a severe famine (Genesis 12:10). The Pharaoh does not invite Abram to Egypt. Rather, he goes there, at the command of the Lord, looking to exploit resources because there are none in his country.

    Sarah (originally named Sarai) was one of several women in the Bible who were unable to have children. That proved doubly distressing for her because God had promised her husband Abraham that he would be the father of the Jewish nation, with descendants more numerous than the stars in the sky. After waiting many years, Sarah convinced Abraham to sleep with her handmaiden, Hagar, to produce an heir. That was an accepted practice in ancient times. The child born of that encounter was named…
