“The Crucible” Abigail Williams is to blame for the crucible witch trials. Abigail is a mean and vicious person who always wants her way, no matter who she hurts. Further she uses her past to justify her actions. Throughout the play, Abigail’s accusations and lies cause many people pain and suffering, but seemed to never care for any of them except her lover John Proctor who she had an affair with once before involving. Abigail used to be employed by John Proctor and Mrs. Proctor but was fired when Mrs. Proctor learned about the affair between the two. Whenever john told Abigail that he wanted absolutely nothing to do with her, she still tried to win his lover over. “I’ll cut my fingers off before I lay a hand on you once more” (page 1139).
