The Crucible

The CrucibleBy: Arthur Miller

Betty Parris is lying in bed unconscious, everyone thinking she is dead. Only one person had faith that she would wake up and that was her father, Reverend Parris. Betty, thankfully, soon wakes up and by that the protagonist, Abigail Williams, knows that Betty will tell everyone the truth. Tituba, the slave, is accused by Abigail to save herself. Which leads Tituba to jail. Eight days after the incident, John Proctor, the protagonist, finds out that Mary Warren left to Salem. As Mary Warren comes back she gets to hear the words that John Proctor had thought to say to her, which contains much anger and very little disapointment. Just as things couldn't have gone worse, it did, guards had come into John Proctor's house to take away his wife, Elizabeth Proctor, because she was accused of whitchcraft.
