The question is which of the two becomes more evil? After critically analyzing these two stories it is evident that Macbeth is more evil because he manipulates others into committing murders whereas Jack commits them himself. Although, they are both extremely evil, manipulating others and in turn wreaking havoc on their consciences is more evil than committing the act
(The narrator) heard many things in hell,” the guilt of the murder tortured the narrator and made him believe that he was hearing things that were not real. The plots that the narrator makes to murder the man and get away with it are very in depth. Guilt also causes the narrator to think of more wicked schemes than before. “If still you think (the narrator) mad, you will think so no longer when (the narrator) describe the wise precautions (the narrator) took for the concealment of the body,” reveals the attention to detail the narrator had when carrying out the murder. As time goes on, the guilt makes the character conscious of every move they make.
Despite their deeply religious values, the members of the Puritan Society in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible are equally as sinful as the rest of the world. The Puritans, known for coming to God when given any matter at hand, lay blame on the Devil, regardless of their contradictory values. By putting blame on him for their wrongdoings, the Devil earns power by the Puritans resorting to involving him in a situation whenever any one thing goes wrong. Power is defined by one’s reputation, status, wealth, gender, and age.
The Creature shows the theme, because he represents passion himself; all of the creature’s actions were incredibly passion driven and all lead to some sort of destruction. Victor was the most self destructive character because his passion for knowledge and later his passion to destroy the creature lead to the destruction of himself. The creature’s and Victor’s want to destroy each other was fueled by their mutual hatred, in the end they both had the same destructive fait. The theme of passion leads to destruction can be seen in Frankenstein and also real life, one may see the destructive powers happen to people around them in
(pg. 47) To pursue this knowledge and then seek revenge after his creation, controlled Victor mentally. He is a monster because not only his actions showed it, but his mind was consumed as well. Victor Frankenstein is the true monster in this novel, because he obtained this knowledge that only God should possess, he was not capable with his actions to fulfill this knowledge, and allowed his self-ambition and revenge to control him. Victor became a monster by allowing this knowledge of creation to consume his actions and mind and in the end, it destroyed him and everyone that he loved.
In Act II, Shakespeare demonstrates illusions that prove that Macbeth is evil and insane, or driven to insanity by power. The one event that suggests whether Macbeth is completely guilty and or insane is the strong manipulative
He wanted everyone trapped or killed. The Devil is the same way he wants everyone on earth to be trapped in his ways. He wants to gain every soul he can. Another bible verse is John 8:44 stating how the Devil is full of lies and evil schemes, which clearly shows how koba was
This could be just reasoning as to why he made the hallucinations he listened to be witches. Witches are known to be unhuman evil spirits that do the bidding of Satan and all dark. It adds to the effect of Macbeth being such a corrupt being when the witches even say that “something wicked this way comes” (4.1.45). This is incredible because to have these figments of his imagination to say that he is dark shows how corrupt Macbeth had become.
Thesis: Iago, from Shakespeare's Othello, is one of the most memorable villains in all of literature. Iago deceives, steals, and kills to get everything that he wants. The play is centered on Iago's dislike for Othello, however, it is not that Iago pushes aside his conscience to commit these acts, but that he lacks a conscience to begin with. Iago's amorality can be seen throughout the play and is demonstrated by his actions against not only Othello, but Desmona and Emilia. Iago is able to manipulate the other characters of the play because he is a villain who doesn't understand the morals of society.
His looks and actions put him on the path of being a monster. I think it can be accredited to these factors that the Monster is the focal point of monstrosity. Yet, I also think that we can call Victor a monster. However, it is not with the same qualifications as his counterpart. I classify Victor as a monster because through his lucid thought process, he abuses his power of knowledge.
The United launched a War on Terror, no nameable adversary other than terror. Bin Laden organized his attack to punish the unjust, in his eyes, America was the evil one. He witnessed the American-Israeli alliance first-hand and saw them invade, destroy, and kill his
Fortunato had blindly stared Montresor in the eyes, oblivious to the flames dancing inside them. Montresor wore a mask of innocence, but behind the mask was the face of Satan, dressed with hatred, and it held no remorse for those it plotted against. The man was a monster, and wisely sported his innocent smile to hide his devilish smirk. Montresor, a savage, yet clever creature, was hungry for the suffering of his enemy, and Montresor MADE his enemies punish. He made them punish deeply, and he punished them with impunity.
These emotions play a huge role in the destruction of societies. In Lord of the Flies William Golding in the novel represents character foil, conflict, and symbolism to reveal the theme that human nature can be inherently evil. There are many different characters in the novel.
When setting a goal, one often strategizes and uses various tactics to ultimately achieve one’s desired objective. In William Shakespeare’s Othello, the character of Iago does exactly that. Iago’s sinister intent is to ruin Othello’s life by gaining his trust and then backstabbing him. In order to ensure the success of his plot to “poison his delight” (Shakespeare 1.1. 68), Iago exploits the people around him with different methods. One of the most prominent strategies that Iago utilizes is racism - but this does not necessarily imply that he is a genuine racist.
Oxley Morgan Ms.Milliner EES21QH-05 1/18/17 Final Paper Throughout the play of Othello many characters had different mindsets and the way they displayed grit was also unique to each characters. One can say that each character had they own fair share of grittiness during the play. However I ultimately define mindset as a belief or beliefs that people have overtime that helps to shape the way they think. You can also say that grit is the determination to do something or achieve something.
