The Crucible: Act 1
Carmen Silva and Betsy Walker
Key Element: Hypocrisy
- Abigail didn't say what happened in the woods, but she told Tituba to confess everything that she knew.
- The Puritans believed that the Lord would forgive a person for any of his or her sins, but they killed people that they thought were witches.
- Reverend Parris acts as if he has parental concern for what happened in the woods with the girls, but his only motivation is for his position and reputation as a pastor.
- Parris also preaches mostly about hell, and not about the forgiveness of God.
Mary Warren states "I cannot lie no more. I am with God, I am with God,"
