Who is at fault for the actions in the crucible?
Transcript of Who is at fault for the actions in the crucible?
Danforth: Why does she (Abigail) see this vision pg.115 Danforth: I cannot hear you. What do you say? Mary utters again unintelligibly. You will confess yourself or you will hang! He turns her roughly to face him. Do you know who I am? I say you will hang if you do not open with me! pg. 117 Danforth: I have until this moment not the slightest reason to suspect that the children may be deceiving me. pg.91 Mary Warren: Never , never.
Girls: Never, never
Danforth growing hysterical: Why can the only repeat you? pg.116 Judge Danforth was somehow unable to bring himself to believe that the girls were faking the entire thing. Judge Danforth was only interested in expanding his power. Even if it meant the harm of innocent people. Danforth: And you know that near four hundred are in the jails from Marblehead to Lynn, and upon my signature. pg.87 In the novel The Crucible by Arthur Miller, I think that Judge Danfoth is the reason for the elongated continuation of the Salem witch trials. In the story he was presented multiple times with false evidence and he believed it anyway. This ignorance on Judge Danforth's part is why the Salem witch trials were allowed to continue.
