Essay Topics

Most of the victims accused of witchcraft in this play are women. Women are often associated with witchcraft more than men in movies and books as well. What are the political, social, or other reasons for this? To what extent is this a positive or a negative gender connection? Use specific examples to explain and support all claims.

One great thing about this play is that the characters are not simplistic. They are not all either good or evil, black or white. There are shades of gray. Students will choose their favorite character and compare his or her qualities, then decide whether he or she is mostly a "good guy" or mostly a villain. Then use specific examples to support each claim. Remind students: don't forget to address counter-arguments.

How does a character's socio-economic status affect him or her in terms of accusation and execution for witchcraft? Choose two characters with different socio-economic status and compare and contrast their fate within the story. To what extent does this difference in treatment exist today?
