In me, Tituba, Black Witch of Salem by Maryse Conde what sort of man is John Indian, and why is Tituba attracted to him? What is Conde saying about male/female relations today by setting her story in the 17th century? Notice that John Indian has agreed to abide by Susanna Endicott’s rules without believing in the principles she espouses. How does Tituba feel about this and why? How does this all relate to Tituba’s decision to follow him and subsequent regret?
