Im writing an essay, and one of the topics is: Knowledge is power, but a power that can be abused.

What are some examples of this? Please include quotes if possible, thank you

I don't really see power as a major topic in the novel The Pearl, unless your essay relates to Kino's lack of power in dealing with the people who wish to take advantage of him. Examples; the doctor, priest, pearl buyers, trackers..... You might want to address the way these people thwart Kino's ability to sell his pearl and gain economic freedom.
