This storyboard depicts the motivations of two significant characters in The Crucible, Abigail and Betty.
The Crucible Act I
"You loved me, John Proctor, and whatever sin it is, you love me yet! John, pity me, pity me!" (1110)
Abagail Williams's Motivation: Desires authority and high social status, primarily through John Proctor
Reverend Parris's Motivation: Fighting to keep the truth silent, the conflict in his household jeopardizes his title.
"Abigail, I have fought here three long years to bend these stiff-necked people to me, and now, just now when some good respect is rising for me in the parish, you compromise my very character." (1104)
