In the play, “The Crucible,” written by A. Miller, Abigail is not a victim of society since she prevaricated, persecuted others, and was emotionally unstable. Abigail lies in order to control society. She blamed Tituba for her actions just so she wouldn’t get in trouble and the guilty one amongst the town would be Tituba. Due to her race and assertions the judges believed her and soon everyone feared her. The penalty for witchcraft was death, every person accused by Abigail was banished, due to that the town was the victim. Abigail accused any individual that would threaten her social power. She later accused Elizabeth Proctor of witchcraft. Soon individuals began to doubt her, believed everything that she was saying was false information.
