While this was going on, Betty is lying in her bed, motionless. Parris is starting to panic, and the thought of witchcraft passes his mind. So when Abigail is one on one with Betty she acts aggressively, by smashing her around the face, she threatens her, "I'll beat you, Betty!" Betty then awakes and starts to whimper and darts off the bed, frightened of Abigail. Abigail then gives her a valid explanation for dancing in the woods, but in an aggressive manner, "I can make you wish you had never seen the sun go down!"
An imp of evil, emblem and product of sin, she had no right among christened infants." Early on we see this powerful statement, which is supported by the rest of the novel. In chapter seven when Hester and Pearl are visiting the governor’s mansion, Hawthorne writes, "Pearl, in utter scorn of her mother’s attempt to quiet her, gave an eldritch scream, … because the quick and mobile curiosity of her disposition was excited by the appearance of those new personages." This action of Pearl’s can hardly be seen as normal. Few children scream when meeting people, although many are a bit shy and stay close to their parents.
Unfortunately for her it was the nosy Mrs Sykes, who had come round asking about what the noise was all about. Mrs Fletcher lied saying it was just the T.V. that was on full volume but Mrs Sykes knew the truth as she’d been peeping through the window. Mrs Fletcher’s face also revealed everything. As Mrs Sykes walked back to her own house, once again the wooden door slammed shut.
She had three other children; Eliza, Georgiana, and John. John was a bully, and when Jane fights back after he throws a book at her head, Mrs Reed blames her for starting the fight and lying about it. As punishment, Jane is shut up in an empty bedroom- called the red-room, where she has a terrifying experience that she sees the ghost of her dead Uncle Reed. 'I lifted my head and tried to look boldly round the dark room; at this moment a light gleamed on the wall.' (page 48) Jane was terrified because she had allowed her imagination to run away with her.
It was huge. The place looked deserted, the grass wasn't mowed for ages, and everything was a mess. John chew nails like crazy, but I still wanted to check this place out. The door was made of wood, and looked like it could fall apart any minute. I tried to turn the door knob, but it fell off as soon as I touched it.
Abagail and the others chant, “But God made my face; you cannot want to tear my face. Envy is a deadly sin, Mary...Oh, Mary, this is a black art to change your shape” (WilliamsCollege). The other girls begin to scream and run out of the church, and Mary Warren is so accustom to playing into Abigail’s plan, she does not realize that they are setting her up. She was so fixed into the
I couldn’t get her to shut up!” (Mc Clymont, Astrid). His mother was abusive physically and mentally with him. An example of her abuse is when she locked her son in the basement alone at night. This often made him think about killing her during the early years, but he didn’t because he wanted to perfect his skills before he killed her. She continuously nagged and insulted his manhood.
Abagail says to her Uncle Parris, “The rumor of witchcraft is all about.” They think the devil has taken over the mind and soul of Betty and that is the reason she sleeps so soundly. The community that this play takes place in also believes that poppets—dolls—are a sign of the devil. These are just ordinary dolls with regular human characteristics, but the people believed that the bodies and especially the faces of these dolls were rude mockeries of the human structure. Witchcraft and demonic ideas or beliefs are not to even be thought of during these times; severe punishment is the wrath of such things. Puritans must also attend the designated church services regularly.
This chanting started by Tituba being so frightened of being hung, she had to do something. It is shown that she is very scared by the stage direction “rocking and weeping”. At the end of act 2, Elizabeth Proctor is being arrested, and with rage, John Proctor tells Mary Warren that she will go to court with him to tell the truth that she never saw the devil to make sure that Elizabeth is named innocent. This scene reveals a little about John’s character. I... ... middle of paper ... ... the audience do not know what John is thinking, he may still love Abigail but knows it is wrong to do; therefore he hides his love for her.
She was a good seamstress but not as good as her father portrayed her and did not know what to do and began to cry. Suddenly, a leprechaun came out of the shadows and stated, “Sit back me friend, you cry in vain so tell me your story so I can ease some pain.” When she told him the story, he said, “Don’t worry, I will sew all this fabric into perfect outfits, but what will you give me in return?” “I will give you my gold-plated necklace!” she promised. The leprechaun started chanting, “A vision before you, appears to be true, but a leprechauns magic fools humans like you”, as he was sewing all the fabric into clothing fit for a king. The seamstress was so amazed with the leprechaun’s work that she didn’t realize the leprechaun had vanished. As she searched for her helper she discovered a cellphone with an attached note stating, “When next you’re in a pinch, I’ll be here in a cinch, just have me bling at the ready before you
