Who is most at fault for the disorder in Salem? Can a youthful young lady truly degenerate such a peaceful place? This once respectful and devout town does not appear to be so perfect after Abigail Williams surreptitiously planted her seed of insidiousness in the minds of the citizens. In her endeavors to get revenge on Elizabeth, Abigail brings the whole town down too. Abigail has an unsanctioned romance with John Proctor, denounces the guiltless, and misleadingly controls others, hence making her most to be faulted for the turmoil in Salem. Abigail built up a deranged connection to Proctor after their undertaking. Their sentiments were not common considering the way that Proctor reliably endeavored to push her away. Abigail, then again, starting to accept the main thing preventing her from being with Proctor was his wife
Elizabeth, looked for courses in which to dispose of her, for example, In act one when Betty awakes from her slumber and says “You did, you did! You drank a charm to kill John Proctor‘s wife! You drank a charm to kill Goody Proctor!” (Act 1, 5). Abigail is given significantly to a greater extent an intention to look for vengeance on Elizabeth, for Elizabeth put her out of the
Proctor home. Abigail's deception is further shown when she says, "She is blackening my name in the town! She is telling lies about me! She is a cold, sniveling woman, and you bend to her!"
(Act 1, 24). Amazingly, her trickery is arriving at such a profundity, to the point that she is
overlooking the way that she slept with John Proctor. In Abigail's endeavors to look for retribution, she is discovered rehearsing a definitive kind of Devil love witchcraft, which starts the allegations of the honest. Suspicions emerge and bits of gossip about witchcraft fill the town. Abigail, alongside Tituba, are discovered rehearsing witchcraft in the woods, positively something no other charged individual had ever done. At the point when gone up against, Tituba lists names of the others that were said to be connected with the Devil and is soon joined by
Abigail. Tituba says “Look! I have white people belong to me. And I look...And there was
Goody Good” (Act One, 15). Then Abby says “ I go back to Jesus; I kiss His hand —I saw Sarah
Good with the Devil! I saw Goody Osburn with the devil! I saw Bridget Bishop with the Devil!”
(Act One, 15). This shows that Abigail's deceptive conduct is uncovered through this demonstration in endeavoring to expel the fault from herself and setting it on honest individuals.
This created great tumult amongst the townspeople bringing about numerous men and ladies to be confronted with two choices: either deny connecting with Devil and be hanged, or admit and face a jail sentence. Despite what happened, Abigail was seen as a dependable witness, and the court accepted every last bit of her lies. Danforth, being a noticeable individual from the court, would indeed question Abigail; be that as it may, her unscrupulousness was to a great degree misdirecting. From the earliest starting point of the play, Abigail lied which just prompted more lies. Her predictable untruthfulness was never uncovered, covering her falseness with dependability. Abigail was mindful of this and kept on blaming individuals for being witches, particularly Elizabeth, so long as she was not suspected to
be a witch herself. She misleadingly utilized…
