In The Crucible and the Salem Witch trials there are many differences. In The Crucible there are many events that Arthur Miller changed from the actual Salem Witch Trials Of 1692. The Topic that this is about Salem Witch Trials of 1692 this takes places in Salem, Massachusetts. Many ages in the book are changed, dramatizing seems more real in The Salem Witch Trials then in The Crucible.
The Following are the differences in the Crucible. In The Crucible Tituba was said to be a Black slave from Barbados. Abigail Williams was seventeen years old, Mary Warren was eighteen years old. John Proctor was in his mid thirty’s to his late forty’s in The Crucible. In the court the girls would pretend to have symptoms. They accused people that had nothing to do with witchcraft and said that they send their “spirits” for example Elizabeth Proctor accused of being a witch by Abigail Williams. Abigail said that Elizabeth had sent her spirits to stab her when Abigail planned all of this on her own to make it look as if Elizabeth did something. The only proof that Abigail has was the poppet that Mary Warren had sewed when they were at the court. Abigail saw were Mary had put the needle, and used that to claim that Elizabeth was a witch and that she wanted her dead. In The Crucible John Proctor and Abigail Williams had an affair. The Crucible Abigail hates Elizabeth because she wants John Proctor and she wants Elizabeth dead. She thinks that by her wanting Elizabeth dead John would want her. Abigail is the leader of the girls who accuses people of witchcraft during the trial. If the girls didn’t do al in The Salem Witch Trials then in The Crucible.
