In and “… I always hear her laughing

In the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller, focuses on the tragedy of the Salem Witch Trials that occurred in 1962. Amongst every character, they each share their own complications. A seventeen year old girl, Abigail starts out with practicing witchcraft which leads to her trying to commit murder. Abigail lies to the other characters and trick them into believing that she isn’t at fault for the many things she does. In result, Abigail is the leading problem in the play. Although many characters in the play caused harm Abigail Williams is the one who caused the most harm that had happened in The Crucible such as when she accuses Tituba for her own doings, she interferes with John Proctor’s marriage, and she lies in court.In act one of The Crucible, Abigail caused the most harm with Tituba when she realizes that she is getting led into trouble and the questions start to get harsh. The girls had gotten caught by Reverend Parris who suspects that they were practicing witchcraft. Parris had seen Tituba waving her hands over a fire and speaking unclear words. Abigail tried to cast a spell and drank blood that was intended to kill John Proctor’s wife, Elizabeth. They all know that practicing witchcraft is punished with death. Abigail then lies putting the blame on Tituba so she wouldn’t be in trouble. “She makes me drink blood!”(Miller 43) and “… I always hear her laughing in my sleep. I hear her singing her barbados songs and tempting me with–” (Miller 44). This is a strong conflict proving that it is Abigail Williams who causes the most harm in the play The Crucible.All throughout the play Abigail becomes an interference with John Proctor and his marriage with Elizabeth causing the most harm to their relationship. John Proctor had committed sins and adultery with Abigail. Elizabeth Proctor began to suspect that something was going on between the two during their conversation at dinner. “You were alone with her?”(Miller 53). Elizabeth found out the truth and that resulted in her losing her faith in him. “Do as you wish, then” (Miller 54). Her suspicions were right that her husband and Abigail definitely had something going on that they shouldn’t have. Everyone knew that John Proctor was a married man with a family. John had committed an affair. It was so unexpected to Elizabeth that she was devastated. The trust she had for her husband was not the same after. The affair Abigail had with John was a major conflict in the play and caused harm to many of the characters.In the last two acts of the play Abigail turns the court against Mary Warren creating harm to many of the characters. Abigail begins to act as if there is a cold wind in the room and her skin goes cold. When Hathorne feels her hand he says “She is cold, Your Honor, touch her! (Miller 109). This makes it seem that Mary sent her spirit out. Elizabeth is asked to leave and after so, John Proctor admits to the affair with Abigail. Danforth calls her back in to see if she says the same in which she doesn’t. Before anything could happen Abigail screams up to the ceiling claiming she sees a yellow bird. “But God made my face; you cannot want to tear my face. Envy is a deadly sin, Mary” (Miller 115). Yet again, this makes Mary Warren look like the bad person. When in reality, Abigail is making this all up. Abigail continues to scream until Mary Warren admits that it is Proctor who wakes her every night to get her to sign. The battle that happened at court was because of Abigail’s actions and lies that caused the most harm.In the play The Crucible, there are plenty of situations where Abigail Williams is to blame for all of the harm that she caused. From attempting to break up a marriage to making false accusations, all are practical reasons for Abigail being at fault. The character who lied the most and induced the harm for everyone is Abigail Williams.
