Transcript of Copy of The Crucible and "Half Hanged Mary" analysis

Similarities in Language and Theme in
The Crucible and
"Half Hanged Mary" "Half Hanged Mary" The Crucible Prejudice “I was hanged for living alone,/ for having blue eyes and a sunburned skin,/ tattered skirts, few buttons,/ a weedy farm in my own name,/ and a surefire cure for warts"

"Oh yes, and breasts,/ and a sweet pear hidden in my body./ Whenever there’s talk of demons/ those come in handy” (Atwood). 7 pm: 9 pm: “I cured your baby, Mrs.,/ and flushed yours out of you,/ non-wife, to save your life./ Help me down? You don’t dare./ I might rub off on you, like soot or gossip. Birds/ of a feather burn together/ though as a rule ravens are singular” (Atwood). 12 Midnight: "[Death is] like a judge/ muttering about sluts and punishment/ and licking his lips" "[Death is] like a dark angel/ insidious in his glossy feathers/ whispering to me to be easy/ on myself. To breathe out finally./ Trust me, he says, caressing/ me. Why suffer?" Later: "My first death orbits my death,/ an ambiguous nimbus,/ medallion of my ordeal./ No one crosses that circle." (Atwood). Works Cited: Miller, Arthur. The Crucible. Viking Penguin, 1952. Print. Atwood, Margaret. "Half Hanged Mary". 1995. Print Hale: “...I note that you are rarely in the church on Sabbath Day” (Miller 1276). (Atwood). "I never said my wife were a witch, Mr. Hale; I only said she were reading books!” (Miller 1280). Giles: Elizabeth: "Great stones they lay upon his chest until he plead aye or nay...” (Miller 1328). Hale: "I am John Hale, minister of Beverly. Does someone afflict you, child? It need not be a woman, mind you, or a man” (Miller 14) Parris: "Who came with him?" Tituba: "Man or woman. Was- a woman” (Miller 18) Elizabeth: “It is her dearest hope John, I know it. There be a thousand names; why does she call mine? There be a certain danger in calling such a name- I am no Goody Good that sleeps in the ditches, nor Osburn, drunk and half-witted. She’d dare not call out such a farmer’s wife but there be monstrous profit in it. She thinks to take my place, John” (Miller 58) Mrs. Putnam: Mrs. Putnam enters with Tituba, and instantly Abigail points at Tituba.

She made me do it! She made Betty do it!

Shocked and angry. Abby!

She makes me drink blood!


My baby’s blood?” Parris: Abigail: Tituba: Abigail: (Miller 16)
