Tituba, the crucible

Tituba was a native Caribbean slave that Reverend Samuel Parris had brought back with him from one of his crusades. Her personality was hospitable, and she would often sing songs in her native tong, which later would prove to be nothing more than ammo in the deliberations. So far, Titubas involvement in the notorious Salem witch trials is about to become more prevailing in the novel The crucible. Outside of the book I am aware that she was thefirst person in the village to confess to using witch craft but was forced by reasons not of her own, to confess. It all started with the Reverends daughter Betty and her cousin Abby. Betty began to have symptoms of hallucinations and unfamiliar outburst. In the time of the witch trials all things that might have been considered to be misfortune were viewed as being a direct punishment from God for what ever reason. So having a sick child must have been because of a sin committed by a member of the family, or someone else was bewitching her. In the book however, Tituba was close to the children and was disheveled by the thought that anyone would believe she ment to hurt them, but never the less the blame was placed upon her and I was on her own accored she chose to save herself and confess, true or not. But what is surprising about this is Tituba knew that they would want to blame her for this, and also knew that there was nothing for her to do about it. What I believe Tituba wanted at this particular time was a chance. For many reasons she might have wanted a chance, a chance to show that she was really innocent qnd not a witch, a chance to find out what was really happening to the girls and lastly a chance to live out the rest of her life, not as a potential "witch".
