Book description

Salem PossessedBy Paul Boyer and Stephen NissenbaumReview by Emily FarrarThe year 1692 and the name of “Salem” have gone down in U.S. history as one of the biggest “witch hunts” ever seen in our history. But most people don’t know much else about Salem past the witch trials of 1692 which claimed 19 lives. The story fascinates them, makes them hungry for juicy details, but they don’t really care to learn about the deeper political controversy that lead to the events of 1692 and that proceeded that year. But without learning about the struggles enveloping this village, one can’t truly understand 1692 sad and odd occurrences. But Paul Boyer and Stephen Nissenbaum bring the pre-witchcraft and post-witchcraft politics to light, going deeper into the current village of Danvers’s history, telling the story in a gripping way that’ll have you turning the page excitedly.It’s a bright summer’s day, and the many kids at the small country club in Penfield were screaming and laughing, splashing each other or doing flips and jumps off the diving board. Looking up, Emily took a sip of her water watching the kids before wrapping her mind back up in her book again.“Emily!”Looking up again, Emily saw her little sister Olivia looking down at her from the foot of the lawn chair, dripping wet and a big grin across her face.“Em, will you get in the pool with me?”“Not right now Liv, I’m reading.” Emily says before looking back down at her book again.“What are you reading?”Looking up once again, Emily glared at her sister for a couple seconds before answering “Salem Possessed. For APUSH.”“Ohhhhh!! Like the Salem witch trials?”Sighing deeply, Emily set the book down and replied “Yes, like the Salem witch trials.”Olivia got a confused look on her face. “So the whole book is about a bunch of dead people?”“Well yes,” Emily said, running her hands through her hair. “And no. It’s about the argument between Salem town and Salem village.”“Wait what?”“Salem was separated into two parts. Salem town was the port, one of the biggest in the colony at that point, where the ‘governmental’ part of Salem lived. Including the church. Salem village became a ‘parish’ of Salem town. It’s the farmlands.”“So what’s all this got to do with the witch stuff?”“A lot. Salem village felt un-fairly treated by Salem town. So they spent years trying to sever themselves from Salem town and create their own township. Not everyone in the village however wanted to do this, which is kind of where the witch ‘stuff’ comes into play.”“Sounds boring to me.”“It’s not though. It’s amazing how much fighting and animosity was in Salem. Do you know how many times Salem village went to the General Court of Massachusetts over really petty things? It’s no wonder nineteen innocent people were killed and more imprisoned. There was SO much hatred toward the town but also amongst themselves. In trying to become a civil society, organized and well kept so as to gain recognition and township, they behaved FAR worse then a bunch of baboons locked up in a tiny, enclosed space. Not only are the baboons going at the glass which enclosed them and the people on the other side, but also at each other!”“Huh. So that’s all this book is about? Baboons? It does talk about the witchcraft trials, right?” Olivia asked.“Oh of course it does. But as I’ve been trying to say, the authors look at the bigger picture and explain it to you in a way that keeps you turning the page excitedly.”“hmmmm… Interesting…. You know you kind of sound like a movie announcer, FYI.”Emily glared at Olivia again before continuing.“The authors made an interesting point on page 104, in chapter 4. They quote John Winthrop, the first governor, as saying ‘[W:]e must be knit together in this work as one man. We must delight in each other,… rejoice together, mourn together, labor and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work, our community as members of the same body.’ The authors then stated that individuals in the community could not pursue their own personal interests, because they were part of this body.”“And what’s so interesting about that?”“Well, from what I can tell reading this book, they were fighting each other based on how the individuals felt toward Salem town. What you essentially had was a part of the village who wanted to break away and start afresh as a new town—like the Putnam family—and a part of the village that wanted to stay with the town of Salem—the Porter family. This point is consistently stated throughout the book”“As you said.”“One of the most interesting things I thought was when Boyer and Nissenbaum, the authors, researched the general wealth of the village and which part of the village were pro-Parris and which of the village was anti-Parris.”“Parris?”“Samuel Parris. He was the first official minister or whatever of their church. They had three others before. James Bayley was the first, George Burroughs—who was brought back in 1692, nine-years after he left accused of being a ‘wizard’—and just before Parris came, Deodat Lawson. It wasn’t until Parris came that Salem village’s church became an ‘official’ church, able to perform communions and such. That happened in 1689.”“Cool. So what does all this really have to do with the witch trials?”“Well, I guess you can blame the two contending ‘beliefs’ or ‘opinions’ of the village, but you can also blame the way the parents of the ‘afflicted’ children and Parris took the kid’s afflictions. Instead of taking it lightly the way Northhampton did in 1735 (mentioned page 28, chapter 1) believing that God was gifting them, the parents and Parris took it that Satan or God was cursing them. From the very beginning, at his first sermon, Parris said,” here Emily paused and flipped through the book to find a page “‘cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully.’ After he started losing the minister tax in 1691 he even considers himself Christ and opponents Judas, who was a member of Christ’s inner circle but who betrayed Christ. He believed that no one was above ‘suspicion of deceit’ as stated on page 168, chapter 7. Two weeks before the first witchcraft arrest he says,” flipping to another page Emily read aloud from the text. “‘While lamenting ‘the present low condition of the church in midst of its enemies’ Parris added—in what under the circumstances, mounted to a self-fulfilling prophecy: ‘Oh shortly the case will be far otherwise.’’” Emily looked up from the book to continue talking to Olivia. “Eventually Parris created a huge problem for himself by making the ‘last safe haven,’ the church, also now unsafe by arresting…” Glancing down Emily checked a couple names and continued “…Martha Cory and Rebecca Nurse, who were church members.”“Huh…. It actually is kind of interesting sounding.”“Oh yeah. In the last chapter they actually talk about each of the hanged ‘witches’ and a lot about them and their past, like where they lived and alignments with the town or village and relations to their neighbors. In the epilogue they talk about Salem village going into the 18th century and finally becoming the town of Danvers in 1737.” “You know, I might actually read that book.” “You probably could understand it. It’s really easy to understand, even for you. If you don’t understand it there truly is no hope for you.”Olivia raised her eyebrows. “Excuse me? What’s that supposed to mean miss I’m still-reading-yet-I-can-still-tell-you-all-the-details-in-the-last-chapter-and-epilogue?”That got her. Emily’s mouth made a little “O” and her eyes got wide.“Whoops….” She whispered.Olivia raised her eyebrows even higher before making a grab at Emily, trying to untie her bikini strings. Dodging the grab, Emily jumped off her chair and went running into the pool yelling “catch me if you can!” and did a tuck-ball into the pool.Olivia laughed, and glanced down at the closed book. Pausing, she stared at it, reaching down as if to pick it up to read, before laughing again and saying “Later Salem, I’ll visit you in a bit. First I have to go drown my own witchy sister!”
