The final thing seen here is the fact that Dante’s description of Satan is a bit disappointing compared to the other descriptions he has written about the inferno. Dante’s portrayal of Satan is paradoxically empty and monstrous; it captures Satan in his true form and speaks of who he truly is. One of Dante’s portrayals of Satan is his monstrousness throughout the Inferno with him blowing over the cocytus.

He is called by King Hrothgar to defend his people from the "evil" Grendel. Normally, it is really unlikely that the antagonist of a book or poem turns out to be the most interesting one, but in Beowulf, this is the case. Grendel is a demon, but a demon mainly driven by human emotions. According to the poem, Grendel is by lineage, a member of "Cain’s clan, whom the creator had outlawed / and condemned as outcasts.” (Beowulf, 106–107) Grendel resents this, so this is his first motive to attack the people in the Heorot. To understand where Grendel's wrath is coming from.
The carnage that he sees in this place is so gruesome that he states that “...any tongue would have to fail:...man’s vocabulary are not able to comprehend such pain”(4-6) this unearthly scene can only be described as hell. This place in Hell was littered with the bodies of those missing limbs or those with limbs being pierced through. The tournament here was constant, much like pain suffered throughout Hell. This pain equaled the punishment that was due for these sinners. This environment in which these sinners are kept is full of blood, pain and sorrow.
Nicholas Wilkins Kathelin. Schroder English III 8, December 2016 How Frankenstein is a Gothic Novel The setting of the book most represents a very gothic dark tone and unlivable settings such as the freezing arctic where the monster meets his master.

In addition to causing the people to, it causes people’s personalities to parallel with the Devil. Giles Corey is a man known for having a court record, due to constant attempt to obtain the land of others. John Proctor claims that Giles “cannot say (...) good morning without [clapping] him for defamation”, because “it [is] the Devil’s fault” (31). The Devil claims power in this situation considering that the effect that he has on Giles is one that strips away his morals as a human being. Similarly, but in a contrasting locality, during this time period, it is known that the Devil’s abilities are able to convert even the purest and sinless people away from God.
The allusion to Cain, makes it even more defined as evil, because Cain is infamous for brutally killing his only brother. But now, in more recent literature, many authors have let the reader decide what the evil, and what the good is. One example would be, “To Kill a Mockingbird”.
