K. Topic Sentence Statement 1 Proof Commentary Statement 2 Proof Commentary Statement 3 Proof Commentary Concluding Sentence/Transition Statement:

Abigails increasing desperation towards John Proctor makes her an unpredictable and volatile character whose sole intent is to claim Proctor as her own, no matter the repercussions to the community of Salem. Proof: Despite Proctors resistance to her declaration of love, Abigail exclaims, A wild thing may say wild things. But not so wild, I think (Act One, Line 177). Commentary: Abigail admits that she is a wild individual and it is this very characterization that makes her a threat to the Salem community. She exhibits no remorse in her relationship with Proctor; rather she defiantly proclaims her love for him. If anything, her attitude is cavalier, uncaring of the outside worlds opinion of her alleged love of this married man. This relationship goes against the morality of the Puritans, threatening the unity and ideals of the Salem community if it is uncovered. Argumentative FormatOpposition
