I learn a lot of things on the debate today and research. For example, I learn how to be better at a debater and able to see through opponent mistake and take advantage of their mistake. Second thing that I learn was how to strike the opponent mistake and knock them out. Lastly, Is that I learn was how to really team work and backup team like my teammate did. I could improve many things like write a better paragraph and make more effective speech and don’t forget what I need to say. Lastly thank to my team.
In Puritan culture, adult men held all of the power with women and children expected to be subservient. Through the events of the trial I think that Abigail was the one who hold all the power now. Like the way she blame Marry for being a witch while looking on the ceiling and screams, for example “If I must answer that, I will leave and I will not come back again” (Miller 189) and the way she rise her voice in the course, for example “If I must answer that, I will leave and I will not come back again” (Miller 189). By the evidence in the story I read so far and in my opinion of how thing work, I could tell that Abigail is the one who hold the power of how thing will work out.
When I learn about the Japanese Interment I didn’t know it would be this worse. Since the camp gather Japanese, German, Italy only, then why they also capture american born citizen and also many case were mix American. Of all reason they said the Japanese american were disloyal to america. The worse case the camp give many people sickness, bad food.
In this story everybody keep lie about many stuff and all are so wicked, but in my opinion the most honorable person in all of them is John Proctor. For example he tell the court “Who tells us Rebecca Nurse murdered seven babies by sending out her spirit on them?”(Miller 180),“The people signing it declare their good opinion of Rebecca, and my wife, and Martha Corey” (Miller 181) trying to prove all the women are arrested were innocence. Also he protect his wife and want her to be out of prison and be free by saying “These are my friends. Their wives are also accused-“(Miller 181). By those all example i can tell that he is the most Honorable man.
The female in the play frequently accused for being and witch. As many suspected to being a witch and lie to Hale about them being a witch and confess to be able to keep their life. But many didn’t know all of this starting from the Greedy and selfish of 1 girl Abigail. The puritan accused many people being a witch but they couldn’t even recognize that this event was real or fake.
Miller do this to show and reveal more mystery and experience to the reader. It also help the reader develop understanding of the event that happened. Also he want to show and tell everybody that what happened to the event if everybody keep lies about stuff and make it more worse. Then lead to the consequence that will neither kill them or hurt the innocence and create more conflict .
The conflict between Abigail and Tituba make the witchcraft situation become much more worse and it give many problem later on. For example : Abigail said ” It Tituba, she make me drink it. She send her spirit to me in the church to make me laugh. She come in every night and make me drink blood. She make me dream of corruption”. Then When Hale ask Tituba she lie about everything and blame everyone she could think of. In my opinion i don’t think that this thing could stop from this it gonna be all around to town and maybe even goes to another town as well.
I think John didn’t have any feeling left for Abigail, but he still care for her., For example John said ” Abby, I may think of you softly from time to time. But I will cut off my hand before I’ll ever Touched, Abby “( Miller 1) and when Abby say “I have a sense for heat, John, and yours has drawn me to my window, and I have seen you looking up, burning in your loneliness. Do you tell me you’ve never looked up at my window.?”. John relief ” I may have looked up”( Miller 439), But what tell me why didn’t love her anymore is that when Abigail say “Oh I marvel how such a strong man may let such a sickly wife be-“, John Yell “speak nothing of Elizabeth!”, If he didn’t love his wife, then why he being so angry and trying to depend his wife. In my opinion a man when he didn’t love his wife and getting seduce by a YOUNG MAIDEN, he might just go for it. But when she ask all kind of thing to try to get him confess his feeling, but he keep deny it and make an oath and that tell me that john he might see seductive and care for her, but he didn’t love her.
In the English class today I have a chance to read one story, Author by Bret Harte name” The Outcast of Poker Flat” depicts a ragtag group of misfits trying to survive in 1850. To me I believe they were not a very successful team, because In the first place there were one members who separate himself from the team and leave on his own, that is Uncle Billy a sluice-robber and a drunkard. Beside from him most of them work very well as team because they all cooperate with each other , For example Mr.Oakhurst create a plan to make a snow boot and they together making it. But all of that is after the arrive of the ” Innocent”, but before the “innocent” arrive they all just not cooperate each other. The new group now stop being selfish and start sharing what they have and helping each others. But Mother Shipton Starved herself and give her meal for the younger one for little Piney and She end up passing away. Mr. Oakhurst aimed to help by sending Tom back to Poker Flat, but it all ended up to fruitless. Before Tom could return and save them Mr. Oakhurst shot himself and The Duchess and Piney, his fiancé, froze to death. They try and gain a lot of success, but to me that is fate was in their way.
