When it starts to seem like this information might come out, however, Abigail preemptively accuses Tituba of bewitching her and Betty in order to save herself.
Finally, Abigail appears to be friends (or friendly) with Mercy Lewis and Mary Warren.
In addition to being an accomplished liar, Abigail is also extremely single-minded.
When she wants something, she goes for it; if one method doesn’t work, she’s happy to go with Plan B.
Abigail has a somewhat mixed relationship with the third member of the Parris household, Tituba.
Abigail seems to believe in Tituba's powers to the extent that she gets Tituba to make a potion to kill Goody Proctor (presumably so Abigail can marry John).
Whether or not Abigail also thinks her uncle is petty and self-important is open to interpretation, depending on how the performers deliver certain lines (or how the reader interprets them). 10) Either she’s meekly agreeing with him…or she’s subtly mocking him because she’s heard him go on and on about how he is persecuted so many times.
Take the following exchange, for instance: “[PARRIS:] Abigail, do you understand that I have many enemies? PARRIS: There is a faction that is sworn to drive me from my pulpit. I tend to believe the latter explanation, especially given how often Abigail’s lines contain dual meanings, but an argument could be made for either case.
A good example of this is Abigail's pursuit of John Proctor.
Because Abigail wants John Proctor for herself, she gets Tituba to make her a potion to kill Goody Proctor.
