Reader is forced to question his own morals to decide which side here is actually the righteous one. Due to moral differentiations, readers split into two sides, supporting God or Satan. So, the line between true and false is not really clear. In Satan’s perspective, God is described with authoritarian and dull characteristics that make the reader see the God as an unattractive entity. On the other hand, it is possible to see Satan’s seductive nature and avoid choosing him over God.

“What can we do to accept one another through our differences?” Being different from one another is a positive thing because it gives us something unique or special, unlike a world that is full of boredom. In the book “The Chrysalids,” by John Wyndham, people who are identified as abnormal or have deviations are symbolized by the image of the devil. Therefore, they are either killed or abandoned at birth because of their abnormality that people disapprove of. The intolerance that people show in the story and the actions David displays against it reveals the definition of being human. Intolerance should not be permitted.
Responsibility is the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone. In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the reader finds many examples of the importance, need, and especially lack of responsibility with characters like Victor and the monster. A reader of Frankenstein sees multifarious examples of Shelley’s theme of the dangers in not taking responsibility even today in the real world.

Roots of Evil People are not born evil, they are influenced by others and taught to hate. Through the experiences of their lives, people gain different outlooks and develop their own beliefs about the world. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, people view the creature as a monster because of his brutal nature towards Frankenstein’s family, but his original intentions are to help and care for others. Frankenstein’s creation is not as evil as Frankenstein is for abandoning his creation and allowing it to develop its evil mentality. Frankenstein’s failure to watch over his creation, the creature’s interactions with other people, the altercations between Frankenstein and his being, and the forgiving nature of the creature display how Victor Frankenstein is more of a monster than his creation.
What is redemption? Redemption is the act of being saved or freed from sin. This is an important part of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The Scarlet Letter.” Redemption was what the characters in the book were seeking, and was the reason for many of their actions. Because of the time period and the fact the people were Puritans, sins were not tolerated nor common, so when they happened they were a huge deal. Puritans felt redemption could not be achieved because the sins were so wrong and so evil.

Individually the symbols offer a well-developed message; however, the multiple meanings contradict, because the different meanings mean opposite ideas. For example, Hester will forever be seen as an adulterer and a steward. These are two opposite concepts, especially in Puritan Society, because a steward helps and an adulterer sins. As the scarlet letter changes through the novel, the symbol contradicts Hester's image and her role in society. Hester is scarred with her sin and the punishment from the Puritans.
By describing the public official of the beadle in such a way, Hawthorne makes clear his negative opinion of the Puritan community. Critic David Sorrells writes that the beadle is a symbol of “moral evil” because he measures out punishments that are “hypocritical” but which the Puritan people sanction. Hawthorne describes the judges who sentence Hester in a similarly derogatory way: “They were, doubtless, good men, just, and sage. But, out of the whole human family, it would not have been easy to select the same number of wise and virtuous persons who should be less capable of sitting in judgment on an erring woman’s heart” (70). Again, by singling out the most respected members of the community for such harsh criticism, Hawthorne demonstrates that his opinion of the Puritan moral code is negative.
