Over being used and cast aside, as well as justified in her desire to have what other possess.
The question of justification also seems to me to have connotations of 'good' and 'bad'. Is Abigail the villain of the piece? Again, I would have to say no. Given that she is driven along by circumstance, I would think the villain would have to superstition and communal competitiveness (hence the cumulative radicalising of the accusations).
Am I reading the question correctly?
edit: Did you know that in actuality, Williams was eleven years old and Proctor nearly sixty, an unlikely pair—even by seventeenth-century standards. Its not important to thread, but it does no harm!!
