Transcript of Rebellion in The Crucible

What is rebellion?

Rebellion
is the act of
refusing
or
disobeying
orders and in this case rebellion is when the citizens of Salem disobey the laws that are enforced which are build upon the commandments of god.
Disobeying the laws in Salem can be seen as disobeying god himself in this extremist religious society as the severity of rebellion depends on who rebels and what position they are put in.
The act of
disagreeing
with the court can result in death and the act of
withholding
confession is what caused the death of many.
Mary Warren & Rebellion
"Ill go to bed when im sleepy!"
Abigail & Rebellion
" I have been hurt, Mr.Danforth; I have seen my blood runnin' out! I have been near to murdered everyday because I done my duty pointing out the Devil's people this is my reward? To be mistreated, denied, question like a-"
John Proctor
- Rebels in a perfect puritan society by not following the rules and going against the amendments (committed adultery, doesn't believe in witchcraft even though it is mentioned in the bible.)
Rebellion in The Crucible
Citizens in Salem rebel to satisy the needs and desires they possess but do not have the freedom to pursue.
"I am eighteen and a woman, however single!"
Mary warren feels the need to make a statement toward Mr and Mrs proctor to prove that she is an independent individual by mentioning that she was of legal age and knew her right to make her own decisions
Despite her little power in society due to her being a woman and a slave, being part of the jury gave Warren more status and power that she uses to disobey her employers while feeling safe doing so as she outspokenly voices her words that she would otherwise not say if she was not part of the jury.
Warren joined hands with Abigail in her conspiracy to overthrow the Court because Abigail is a strong independent character who needs to use Warren in her plot and Warren goes along with Abigail’s plan because she fears Abigail can harm her if the two are on bad terms
Warren’s rebellious acts throughout the play are ironically driven by her need to feel protected in a society where constant blame, doubt and suspicion being thrown around.
Mary Warren is constantly rebelling against the court and members in her community who pose a threat to her. She holds little power in society so she is forced to preform petty rebellious deeds on behalf of powerful figures for a sense of security and comfort in return
As the play progresses, Warren’s loyalties change once more as John Proctor threatens Warren with whips if she does not confess the truth about Elizabeth Proctor’s involvement black magic.

frightened for herself her voice very small
, what poppets that sir?”
Fernando Disque is a famous lawyer who used to defend Pablo Escobar who used to be a drug lord and wished to be part of the government. Disque helped Escobar launder his drug income and presented Escobar as a proactive law abiding citizen to the public and was the campaign manager for Escobar’s presidential campaign.
Fernando Disque protected, supported and did dirty work to maintain Pablo Escobar campaign and image much like Marry Warren did for Abigail consistently throughout the play. Disque was bribed by Escobar with large sums of money and was motivated to rebel against authorities for financial security much like Mary Warren rebelled against the court for security and protection for her life which she believed Abigail could provide with the power she held.

All in all the citizens in Salem rebel to satisy the needs and desires they possess but do not have the freedom to pursue.
Warren’s rebellious acts throughout the play are ironically driven by her need to feel protected in a society where constant blame, doubt and suspicion is being thrown around, so she is forced to constantly rebel against the threats that are targeted towards her by preforming petty rebellious deeds on behalf of powerful figures for a sense of security and comfort in return.
The image justifies John Proctors true belief in god, a
personal relationship instead of considering the bible as a
book of rules. this is an act of rebellion since in Salem religion
isn't a personal relationship made for moral support instead
it is rules that the community needs to follow to present a perfect
society. (having own opinions is considered rebellion).
