Othello shows the two types throughout the story and the play, envy and fear, and how they can claw and chew away the the fragile human psyche, like a monster, trying to claw out of a deep dark hole that has had a trap on it for days without end. Othello is one of the great examples of how jealousy can teach us not to be overcome by dark things, to always stay strong and believe in our own thoughts, and that the poison known as jealousy, can make or break even the best of people a slow killing venom that makes the weak sick and twisted. This play teaches us that jealousy has no good outcomes, only horrid and how it shows no mercy to anyone. Jealousy is a card no one should or ever want to play with a deck full of

To support the claim that beneath her evil demeanor Steinbeck depicts Cathy as a woman with innocence, the exploration of the source of evil within Lucifer is required. There is much significance to Steinbeck’s portrayal of Cathy as a serpent, as such a reference applies to the biblical character of Lucifer. That is, Lucifer – the devil, takes the form of a serpent likewise to Cathy who is illustrated by Steinbeck as a snake as well, which infers the link between the two characters. In The Book of Revelations, one can trace the source of evil within Lucifer from the phrase, “And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world-he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”.

For example, the morning after Macbeth kills Duncan, a party arrives and pounds on the gate to speak with Duncan. They make such a noise that lady Macbeth describes it as “...a hideous trumpet [call]” that “parlay[s]/ the sleepers of the house” (2.3.57-58). She is aware that had the pounding on the door truly awakened them, they would have been asleep in bed, not in the king’s room daggers in hand. Therefore, sleep gives to Lady Macbeth and her husband the impression of true innocence. Upon “discovering” King Duncan’s corpse, Lady Macbeth begs the men surrounding her to, “Help [her]hence, ho!”(2.3.138), for she is fainting at the sight.

In the poem Beowulf, there is a contrast between good and evil. This distinction is presented through the monsters Grendel and his mother, in parallel to the hero Beowulf. The themes of evil and monstrosity are therefore used in the story, as a way to create the notion of Grendel and his mother as monsters. Beowulf therefore appears as a character representing good. Although Beowulf shows traits of abnormal power, like Grendel and his mother, his motifs are interpreted differently.

Pearl is seen as a devil child by the Puritan community, even making her own mother question her humanity. “...sometimes so malicious… that Hester could not help questioning, at such moments, whether Pearl was a human child” (Hawthorne 101). In the novel she is shown scaring away other children by throwing rocks at them. Described as, “An imp of evil, emblem and product of sin,” Pearl represents the scarlet A in a negative way (Hawthorne 102). Being the legitimate symbol of the scarlet letter herself, Pearl’s biggest symbolic representation is Hester’s sin.
Symbolism is a notable feature in Catching Fire (2009) . Through symbolism , Suzanne Collins manages to paint Katniss as the ultimate embodiment of rebellion through transferring her into a mockingjay . " A mockingjay is a creature the Capitol never intended to exist"(92), as it is a result of the Capitol's usage of the japperjays which were sent to spy on the rebels. However, the japperjays failed in their mission so the Capitol left them to die ,but they managed to survive through mating to female mockingbirds . This proves that the existence of the mockingjays is an act of rebellion in itself , an act of defiance excuted by the Capitol's own invention , long before Katniss has been born. .
Abigail knew that soon her "sinful" behavior would come out.

Tituba made me do it!" Abby was afraid of getting in trouble for the dancing and spell-casting, so she blames Tituba for doing it.
By asserting that Constance seeks to bed Othello, and presenting the manuscript as proof of her consortion with the Turks, Iago poisons the mind of the short-tempered Desdemona, who vows to get revenge: “I’ll try her once in fairness. Then I’ll chop her into messes” (MacDonald 48). Although she seems to be wanting to discern truth from fiction, Desdemona is already convinced of Constance’s guilt by Iago’s words and false evidence; combined with the other woman’s obliviousness to her surroundings, this results in several humorous moments of irony and misunderstandings prior to Constance’s warp travel. In her new destination, both Romeo and Juliet, blinded by their first impressions, fall in love with Constance, resulting in another plethora of laughter-invoking blunders. Husband and wife of one night, their sudden love for Constance is a result of their juvenile impulsiveness, and it is left to Constance to circumnavigate their hyperbolic attempts to woo her.
