The Crucible: The Witchcraft Hysteria
... the people of Salem were responsible for the witch hysteria.
The person with the most influence was the character, Abigail. Abigail
had an affair with a man by the name of John Proctor. Proctor broke contact
with Abigail and spent time and interest in his wife, Elizabeth. Abigail gets
jealous because of this and Abigail, a few other girls, and a servant from the
Caribbean named Tituba dance around in a order that they believe it will kill
Proctor's wife. Rev. Parris, Abigail's uncle, sees this and reports it. When
Abigail is questioned about this, she denies everything and doesn't tell the
truth about what really ...
... a nice person. She is almost the complete opposite of Bart except they both
enjoy the violent cartoons of "Itchy and Scratchy". Maggie, the baby of the
family, is known for constantly smacking her pacifier. She is portrayed as
being smarter than Homer. Almost every little thing in the show is intended
In general the show is very funny but has some bad language and other
offensive material. The fact that the show is a cartoon may be what has kept
some people from watching. The cartoon though is what helps achieve many of the
humorous aspects. For example a spill of nuclear waste would no ...
The Crucible Shows Characterization Through The Experiences Of John Proctor
... like this with their reverend. John Proctor goes beyond the faith of society and challenges the reverends religious beliefs. John Proctor's experience shows characterization by his reverends obsession with hell.
Another experience of John Proctor occurs in the beginning of Act Two. John Proctor goes through a big argument with his wife Elizabeth Proctor, as she starts to be suspicious with him about sexual relations, she thinks he had with Abigail Williams. Elizabeth says, "John, you are not open with me." John replies with, "I'll plead my honesty no more Elizabeth." In the proceeding words spoken between the tw ...
Othello: Reasons For Iago's Hatred Of Othello
... of suspecting Othello
and Emilia of sleeping together. Iago's two-sided nature is clearly
depicted throughout the play as his malicious plan against Othello unfolds.
One of the most compelling reasons for Iago's hatred of Othello is
depicted in the first scene of the play, when Iago expresses his jealousy
of Cassio. Iago is a non-commissioned officer who is experienced and
ambitious. Instead of appointing Iago who had plenty of experience on the
battlefield, Othello appoints "a great arithmetician, one Michael Cassio, a
Florentine . . . that never set a squadron on the field" (1.1.19-22).
Michael Cassio was mor ...
Animal Farm: Comparison Between Book And Movie
... When she betrayed the animals
by being with a human it gave you a feeling that there were more animals that
could be traitors. In the movie since there was no Mollie, you did not even
have a feeling of suspense for what was going to happen later on.
In the book, there was many surprises that shocked me. One of those
surprises was that Napoleon wanted Snowball ousted. Though Napoleon did not like
Snowball, the wasn't really any evidence that he would try to kill Snowball. In
the movie, Napoleon, had a bad image already. He had a mean look and shoved his
way in front when Old Major gave his speech. There was also ...
The Odyssey: Character Study Of Athena
... she wants Odysseus to get back home to Ithaka.
She also wants Telemahkos to meet his father for the first time in decades.
She does this very cleverly. To help Telemakhos grow out of his cowardly
childhood, she comes to him as a good friend, encouraging the young boy to
do what he must and seek out news about his father. But when she leaves,
she gives a little hint to him that she's actually a goddess by turning
into a bird. I think this was a weakness of Athena. The fact that she
constantly showed off to many people that she was indeed a goddess shows
that she wants to be praised by all and showing a slight ...

The Debut Of Television In America
... see the world.
When television was first introduced, its main purpose was for entertainment. The picture was in black and white and there were only a few channels with limited selections. As time passed, people became more accepting of the new innovation; television sets were being found in more homes throughout America. This is when television began to take the nation by storm.
Television slowly started to take over the lives of many. Families became less “family oriented”; family time, for the most part, was now spent in front of the TV. Dinner time, which used to be an important part of the day when many fa ...
Television And The Internet
only linked to television in the sense that they both convey vast amounts of
information, but they both seem to complement each other. The internet is
presenting vast amounts of information about our favorite television shows as
well as providing an arena for discussion about the programs. I will present to
you what is available out there and hypothesize how this can enhance or alter
one's experience with television. Included in this paper will be actual
responses from individuals around the world who responded to a survey I posted
on various internet newsgroups devoted to specific television shows. The most
... know what happened in the woods and he is angry that Abigail isn’t telling the whole story. Abigail is not telling him the whole story because she is afraid of what might happen to her. In addition, anger is evident in this play when Abigail is mad at the girls because she believes they are going to confess to all the things they did in the woods.
Jealousy was one of he emotions that played an important factor in this play. For example, When Abigail stated, "now look you. All of you. We danced. And Tituba conjured Ruth Putnum’s dead sisters. And that is all. Let either of you breathe a word. About the other things, ...
