THE CRUCIBLE: FACT vs. FICTION
Transcript of THE CRUCIBLE: FACT vs. FICTION
when in the story he was a 30 year old farmer. Quote: "Procter was a farmer in his mid-thirties" Putnams had a six living children when in the story
they had seven dead children. "Is it a natural work to lose
seven children before they live a day?" Abigail didn't really work for John and
Elizabeth Procter, and there was no evidence
of an affair. "Abby, I may think of you from time to time.
But I will cut off my hand before I'll ever reach for
you again. Wipe it out of your mind. We never touched Abby." There was never any dancing in the woods "Uncle, we did dance; let you tell them I confessed
it- and I'll be whipped if I must be. But they're speakin' of witchcraft. Betty's not witched." In the Story there was only Judge Hathorne and
Danforth, when really there was 8 judges! "Judge Hathorne enters. He is
in his sixties, a bitter, remorseless Salem
judge." - Stage direction
"Danforth is a grave man in his sixties, of
some humor and sophistication that do not,
however, interfere with an exact loyalty to his
position and his cause."-Stage direction During the trials Betty was a major part of them, when in real life after
the legal proceedings of her dancing in the woods she was sent away "I saw George Jacobs with the
Devil! I saw Goody Howe withe the
Devil!"- Betty In the story it is said that Procter had only boys as children
when really he had a daughter who was 15, a son who was 15 and
another son who was 33 and two a different wife before Elizabeth. "Aye, the farm is seeded. The boys asleep?" In the story Abigail is 17 years old, when in real
life she was only 11! "He is bending to kneel again when
his niece, Abigail Williams, 17, enters-
a strikingly beautiful girl, an orphan with
an endless capacity for dissembling" In the story John, Rebecca, and Martha Corey
were all hung on the same day at the same time. When
in real life Rebecca was hung on July 19th, John on August 19th,
and Martha on September 22th. "The final drumroll crashes, then
heightens violently. Hale weeps in frantic prayer, and the new sun is pouring in upon her face, and the drums rattle like bones in the morning air." Betty Parris' mother (Elizabeth) was not dead and was alive in 1692. Elizabeth Parris died four years after the witchcraft trials, on July 14, 1696, at the age of 48. "Your mothers dead
and buried!"- Abigail Williams The Parris family also included two other children. Bettys older brother, Thomas , and her younger sister, Susannah. It was not just Betty and her relative Abigail. "What shall I say to them? That my daughter and my niece I discovered dancing like heathen in the forest?"- Parris The conflict of Abigail and Betty being accused of
witchcraft is true! Elizabeth was
the trails just like
in the story and ended
up living. Rebecca nurse , Martha Corey, and Proctor were still
hung even though it wasn't on the same day like in the
story. In the story along with in real life Giles Corey did
get stones placed over him to make him plea but he
refused and his children got his land still. In both the story and real life the trails were unfair. Meaning in the
story weather you really weren't apart in witch craft and was telling
the truth you were looked at as lying. But when you would lie and say
that you were taking part in witch craft you still got sent to jail. Either way
you would lose. BY: NINA COTRONEO, JEN CHICHILLA, & GIONNA FONSECA Works Cited
