In Markus Zusak's The Book Theif, Death observes both the beauty and ugly in people, and wonders "how the same thing can be both". In the historical novel, ugliness and beauty affect the characters and the other humans in their lives. Much of this beauty and ugly can come from the same thing. Whilst the love and compassion of characters such as Rudy and Hans is shown on many occasions, there is also a lot of dangerous and awful circumstances that they are faced with, and also that they bring upon those people that are close to them.

Schindler starts to become a better person and take action like how Spider Man realizes that he must stop crime after he sees his uncle die from a criminal and use his power for good.

Throughout the story, the mask is revealed and the reader gets to see that what may look scary and evil, can be something very different on the inside. This story shows that the evil may be what you thought was the good, and what you thought was good was the evil. But, this also depends on the reader’s personal opinions, creating it a grey zone.The battle between good and evil also relates to our world today, outside of literature.
