Review of the Information:
Brad Cox’s Witch Hunts
This cite is pretty long but very informative. This cite also tells of certain ‘witch hunts’
that go on today. This cite is a very good cite for information on the first set of witch hunts in Europe. I really enjoyed this cite. It gave
dates and pretty detailed numbers of people accused of being a witch and killed for it. I believe that this cite would be
more helpful to someone who is needing just a little over view of the European witch hunts.
Kimberly Murray’s ….Connections to Nathaniel Hawthorne
This cite is very short
and sweet. It basically tells of Hawthorne and his usage of Puritan beliefs and
the history of the Salem Witch Trials within his works. This cite also tells how part of the trial was conducted and what
role Nathaniel Hawthorn’s forefather had with the trials. This is a good cite to use when associating Hawthorne
to the Salem Witch Trials.
Nathaniel Hawthorne: Biographical Information
This is a great cite to
find an overall view of Hawthorne’s life and works. It is a very short cite,
but it is also very informative. It does not tell of every little detail of Hawthorne’s
life; it just hits the most important aspects of it.
Salem Witch Trials
This is a very informative
cite as well. It is actually a paper within an encyclopedia—I believe. It is very detailed and gives bibliography information
on the facts that it gives. I really enjoyed this cite because I feel like I really learned something by reading it. It did
not have the same old information that all the other cites I saw had. It actually had new and unusual things in its context.
This was actually my favorite of all the cites that I looked at.
This was also another of
my favorite cites. It has a lot of information in it. It is very informative and very lengthy as well. To begin with, it gives
an over view of the trials and its aftermath. Then it gives detail reasons for the hysteria, the participants’ names,
who the presiding officials and associate magistrates were, and who the afflicted and the accused were. It also gives dates
of those of those who were killed. This is a very interesting cite and I enjoyed it very much.
Tom Sutter’s Salem Witchcraft
This is also another lengthy
cite. It gives three main factors of that may have started or fueled the trials. It also lists the events or gives a brief
description of the trials and its proceedings. This cite also gave a description of the what went on in the aftermath of the
Salem Witch Trials. This is a good cite. It was very helpful in my understanding of the Salem Witch Trials.
This cite is extremely
short. It is only a paragraph long; however, it is a good example of how Hawthorne
uses his Puritan beliefs and the affects of the Salem Witch Trials in his works.
