Storyboard Text

  • Act 1
  • Woman, have you enlisted these children for the Devil?
  • I love me Betty!
  • Act 2
  • I never kept no poppets, not since I were a girl
  • I spy a poppet, Goody Proctor
  • Act 3
  • Goody Proctor always kept poppets in the house
  • While you worked for Mr. Proctor, did you see poppets in that house?
  • Your Honor, my wife never kept no poppets
  • A theme Arthur Miller uses is that, people will believe what they have been told if plenty of other people believe it too. During this scene Tituba is being accused by Abigail for making her drink blood and do give the girls' souls to the Devil. This could not even be true. Everyone is more inclined to be accepting of this idea because Abigail is saying that she is, Betty is "sick", and to them that could be an easier route to believe and follow through with. 
  • Previous to this scene, Mary Warren has given Elizabeth a poppet. Whenever Abigail was eating dinner and fell to the floor and had a needle in her stomach. Cheever asks Elizabeth if she has any poppets and she replies no because she forgot the one Mary has given her. Cheever notices the poppet on the mantle and finds a needle in it. This makes Elizabeth to appear as she has been doing witchcraft to harm Abigail. This could possibly and most likely not be true but since Abigail has physical proof of being stabbed and a majority of the people in town believeable it then it seem to be the more valid and believable answer.
  • In this scene Mary has confessed that Abigail has made the poppet in Elizabeth's house. Abigail denies it. Then Cheever asks Abigail if she has ever seen any other poppets in the house and she says that Eliabeth always had poppets. This makes Mr. Proctor upset because he lives with his wife and they do not keep poppets in their house. Everyone decides to believe Abigail because everyone has believed everything she has said so far so why would they stop now, right? They simply believe Abigail over Elizabeth and Mr. Proctor because that is what the majority of people believe.
