The judges made it seem obvious that the narrator’s life was coming to an end. The fear that the judges put into the narrator is used to help him realize the fate that awaited him. The judges are the most villainous from the chosen stories because of their evil conception of torturing and killing the narrator. The short-stories villains are arranged from least villainous to most villainous. Okeke would be the least villainous because his actions were not as extreme as the other two villains.
One of the biggest themes that the author tries to get across to the reader is that every person has good and evil in them, but they are not equal. Throughout the book, there is a huge struggle between good and evil between Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. These two men are actually the same person, but Dr. Jekyll takes a potion to turn himself into Mr. Hyde so he can do evil deeds. He does this because everybody has urges to do evil things, but Dr. Jekyll could not risk losing his reputation as a “good” guy in the society that he lives in. The main question is if good and evil can be separated, or is everyone stuck between the fight of both.
In the last scene he tries to save Kevin, and does by pushing him away from the van but in the process cuts his face, everyone thinks that Edward is attacking Kevin and Jim beats him up. This is a great example of Edward trying to do good but is thought of been evil. Edward is essentially stuck in Limbo, he is the nicest person in the film, but is made out to be the most evil. Jim and Kim are a prime example of two opposite worlds, Jim been dark and Kim been light. Kim is the most innocent person stuck in-between Jim and Edward.
Evil to depict the differences of Grendel and the humans. Another example of this theme from Beowulf is, “A prince of the Geats, had killed Grendel, Ending the grief, the sorrow, the suffering Forced on Hrothgar’s helpless people By a bloodthirsty fiend” (Beowulf, Canto 12 Lines 830-833). This quote emphasizes the distinct contrast of good and evil in Beowulf. The author characterizes Beowulf as an admirable hero, and a clear-cut “good guy” in the story. Conversely, the author describes Grendel as a
Criminal novels are my favorite books at leisure. Normally, murderers will end up with being under arrested at the end of stories. However, the protagonist, Tom Ripley, is extremely clever and he can avoid every risk of being arrested in this story. Plus, it is suggested that Tom Ripley can be the representative of literary psychopaths. Therefore, I try to dig out every clue that causes his motives to kill people and every detail that built up his personalities so that it would help me understand why a genius becomes a villain.
The McGill’s goal for doing this was to collect one thousand souls. The reasons for the one thousand souls were so that he could win his life back like the fortune cookie said. The McGill is an evil villain but like any other villain there is a reason for all of there anger. In the McGill’s case he is a monster and he is a jerk to everyone so he is very angry person. He takes his anger out on other people but by the end of this book he will learn to be good.
Good Requires Evil In a world of confusion, he who lives, lives by his own rules and morals. As in the comparison of pretty to ugly, it can be seen that good and evil only exist in their difference from one another. For example, if there was no definition of beauty, there would be no concept of ugly either. The dull response of “without evil, there is no good” holds much authority in this argument. Can we make the assumption that evil is just a division of a clear good?
Vengeance Roger Chillingworth is an evil man that feeds on the sin of others. When Chillingworth is first introduced in the story, he seems like a respectable, knowledgeable man. However, as the story progresses Chillingworth becomes filled with an overpowering feeling of vengeance towards Reverend Dimmesdale. These feelings consume his inner being. His vengeance actually becomes a crazed obsession that will never cease.
Buried Alive Edgar Allan Poe is methodical in creating a gothic darkness and evil storyline provoking sympathy anger, and back to understanding the actions of evil that Montressor inflicted without impunity. Poe creates fantasy and reality, “his fiction often made fun of what he wrought best: terror tales”, (Fisher xv) with The Cask of Amontillado, leaving the reader to question self on how far would you go to avenge your pride, and your honor. The Cask of Amontillado, Montressor narrates a sinister plot to punish and bury Fortunato alive is implausible, however, understanding how antagonistic Fortunato was towards Montressor and the mass of insults delivered may change the readers mind. Poe uses two unusual settings to create the atmosphere in the story, a carnival at night which initially reads as fun, festive, and happiness and however, if you look beyond that carnivals also create an environment of madness, and chaos which releases Montressor freedom to implement his plan of revenge and his high level of evil in which Montressor lures Fortunato into the family catacombs to die. The first setting in the story of jovial, happiness, and jubilant behavior amongst the crowd allows a sense of freedom for Montressor to move and execute his plan without suspicion from Fortunato.
