Washington Irving wrote “The Devil and Tom Walker” during a time of economic boom (1824). Stephen Vincent Benet wrote “The Devil and Daniel Webster” during a time of economic depression (1937). Despite the stories’ titles, both have different resolutions, depictions of the devil, and saving graces in the end.

Iago: elusive or illusive? The most profound and intriguing characters in Shakespeare’s plays, at least in the tragedies, are the villains. Don John in Much Ado About Nothing has far fewer lines than the other main characters, yet it is his actions that create consequential events the whole play revolves around. But unlike the comedies, the tragic villains (villains of the tragedies) are more than mere blocking forces. They are the manipulators, the inciters of the actual tragedy and therefore much more intense and curiously evasive.

It our society today the villains are charismatic and misunderstood while the heroes are portrayed in a darker light. One example of this is the movie “Maleficent” who in children’s fairy tales was always bad. The new movie portrayed her as angry, but misunderstood fairy who has been wronged at the beginning of the story. The reason for the change is that “villains can be more interesting than heroes because the villain draws the audience’s curiosity” (Pedalino).

Shulman provides some interesting twists and turns to what easily could be a straightforward story of magical items running amok. The fascinating parts of the book are not the objects themselves, but the ways in which people use them. Seven-league boots become an addictive answer to the pressures of time in a busy adolescent’s life. The Magic Mirror provides more harm in its caustic answers than good in its ability to tell only the truth.
