7 Deadly Sins Committed By Characters From "The Crucible"
Envy
Envy is the desire to have for oneself something possessed by another.
Gluttony
Anger/ Wrath
Lust
A cow represents lust.
It is represented by the color blue.
Abigail Williams
Abigail sinned because she lusted for John Proctor and committed adultery.
Lust is the craving for pleasures of the body.
It is often linked with the dog.
Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than which one requires.
It is often linked with the color orange.
Gluttony is linked with the pig.
Greed
Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual.
It is associated with the color yellow and the frog.
Anger is manifested in the individual who spums love and opts instead for fury.
Anger is represented by the bear and the color red.
Proof of Abigail's lustful character:
- "I'd almost forgotten how strong you are, John Proctor." (page 27)
- "Give me a word John, a soft word." (page 28)
- "I am waitin' for you every night." (page 28)
In "The Crucible" Abigail Williams has an envious and jealous personality.
Quotes that back up her envious personality:
- "You drank a charm to kill John proctor's wife!" (page 25)
- "She wants me dead. I knew all week it would come to this!" (page 66)
"Envy is a deadly sin, Mary." (page 117)
Abigail talks to "Mary" (Mary's bird spirit) and says "Envy is a deadly sin", because she herself has committed the sin of envy and wants to blame or put it off on Mary.
Elizabeth Proctor says this quote because she and John Proctor both know that Abigail tried to call her a witch to get rid of her. Abigail does this out of envy and jealousy.
This quote is said by Betty because she knows that Abigail is envious of Elizabeth Proctor and wants to kill her.
Pride
Pride is the excessive belief in one's own abilities, that intervenes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God.
Pride is often represented by the color violet.
It is also represented by a horse.
In the novel, Reverend Paris can be seen as an individual who is full of pride.
Proof of pride in Paris's personality:
- "I had to show my frostbitten hands like some London beggar!" (page 35)
- "I am not some preaching farmer with a book under my arm; I am a graduate of Harvard College." (page 35)
- "What are we, Quakers?" (page 36)
When he says these quotes, Paris is proving that he thinks highly of himself. He prides in his wealth and education. (A preacher like him should have pride in his religion, not wealth or education.)
Elizabeth Proctor says this quote because she and John Proctor both know that Abigail tried to call her a witch to get rid of her. Abigail does this out of envy and jealousy.
Abigail talks to "Mary" (Mary’s bird spirit) and says "Envy is a deadly sin", because she herself has committed the sin of envy and wants to blame or put it off on Mary.
In "The Crucible" Thomas Putnam is a very greedy person.
3 quotes that prove Putnam to be a greedy person:
- "That tract is in my bounds, it's in my bounds, Mr. Proctor." (page 38)
- "It stands clear in my father's will that all the land between the river and--" (page 38)
- "I'll clap a writ on you" (page 38)
Thomas Putnam is a greedy man who argues with John Proctor about land that is supposedly his. He uses his daughter to accuse people whose property he covets.
In this novel, Mrs. Ann Putnam is a very angry woman.
Proof of Mrs. Putnam's bitterness:
- "You think it's God work you should never lose a child, nor a grandchild either, and I bury all but one?" (page 34)
- "There are wheels within wheels in this village, and fires within fires!" (page 34)
- "I'll not have you judging me anymore!" (page 45)
Mrs. Putnam is an angry and bitter woman because she lost seven of eight of her children. She wants to know how they died, so she sends her daughter to Tituba to conjure the spirits of her dead babies.

Sloth is often represented by the color light blue and the goat.
