The antagonist in the story is Abigail Williams. She stirs up the entire town of Salem against many people, including Elizabeth and John Proctor, because of her selfish personal ambition to be John’s next wife, as well as her treacherous lust for the power that she gains by accusing innocent people of witchcraft.
