Discussing The Similarities And Differences From The Crucible
In my essay I will be discussing the similarities and differences from the Crucible.The Crucible is written by Arthur Miller and takes place in Salem, Massachusetts. It was written in 1952 and was wrote because of McCarthyism. This book has a lot of drama involved in it and shows people turning back on whoever they could to save themselves.
When reading the book and watching the movie, just like any other there is going to be some changes either added or taken away. For the main part, they do it to make it more interesting. I picked to do my essay this way because I think it will be more organized way to explain it.
Likewise, There is two similarities that I saw between the book and the movie which are when Abigail threatens the girls to lie or else she will do something to them and the second similarity is when abigail steals Reverend Parrisr’s money. When abigail finds out they are investigating about the witchcraft situations she gets angry and tells the other girls not to confess to anything. She knew if someone said the truth they will all get in trouble and she didnt want that. She made sure no one was going to say a word and basically told them to lie. Towards the end, not everything went as she planned. As well as when she stole the money, she saw that everything was going downwards for her. She made everything go to far and locked up the person she wanted, which was John Proctor. When she saw that happened, all she wanted was to runaway from Salem with him, with the money that she took.
On the other hand, One main difference that happened was that the girls gang up on Mary Warren before turning on her in court in the movie and in the book they only turn on her in court. Basically Mary Warren goes to court to confess that everything Abigail and the girls are saying is false and that they never saw such thing as the devil. So Mary Warren goes to court with John proctor in the movie. The girls find out she was going to confess so when they got to court they turn on her to make it seem she is with the devil. Another difference is in the movie Tituba gets whipped and in the book, Reverend Parris only threatens to. When this all started and the girls get caught. They start to question them and Abigail speaks out. She had said it was all Titubar’s idea and that she told them to do it. Which Abigail only blamed Tituba to save herself and basically make her suffer. Thatr’s why in the movie they start to whip her telling her if she was with the devil even though she wasnt, the only to save herself was by saying she was.
Taking everything into consideration, whenever watching a movie and a book there will always be difference to make the movie or book more interesting. To me it made the movie more interesting and dramatic. Overall, both movie and book were well written and the arthur really made it to grab the reader’s attention. The only thing that really bugged me was Abigail in general because she basically got away with not getting in trouble. She caused many people their lives and still got away with it. Something that I would like to know is what happened to rest of the girls. Ultimately I really like both movie and book.
