“Trifles” (Glaspell 772) Unsurprisingly, Mrs. Peters is more concerned than Mrs. Hale with the legalities of the case, and—at least in the first part of the play—she defends the men from Mrs. Hale’s criticism by observing that what they are doing is “no more than their duty.” Mrs. Hale, the Wrights’ neighbor, appears more sympathetic to Mrs. Wright’s situation and more aggressive in criticizing the men’s behavior. Why might Glaspell make the women different in these ways? How do their differences contribute to the conflict of the play? to its resolution? Use at least one citation to support your claim.
