A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, written by Mark Twain, tells the tale of Henry “Hank” Morgan and his adventures in sixth century Arthurian England. Throughout his adventure, Twain’s derision for the Romantic literary style is illuminated through Hank’s no-nonsense assessment of situations and his critical opinion of the English nobility. The pitiful and unflattering reality of the Arthurian nobility and Mark Twain’s disdain for romantic literature are portrayed through Hank’s quest to rescue Sandy’s fellow ‘damsels’ in distress from the clutches of their ogre captors. Twain mocks the romantic writers by imitating their flowery, fanciful, and idealistic call to adventure.

Evil is something that can be hidden within oneself and brought up depending on the situation. An example of when people are shown to be evil is in The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell. When the main character Rainsford becomes the very thing he did not want it to become because the evil ways of the island have changed his views for the worst. The shift in Rainsfords views is shown many time throughout the text but greatly when the narrator states “ Rainsford decided he had never slept in a better bed” (Connell 15). When the narrator says this it implies he is not phased over killing a man then sleeping in his bed.
The Birthmark is a short story involving a husband, and a wife named Aylmer and Georgiana. When reading this rather dark story the mind begins to question the ethics within the writing on who was a fault for the ultimate death of Georgiana, Aylmer or herself. I would argue that it was Aylmer who was the true monster within this story. Aylmer makes her shutter at her once charming mark and tells her she is imperfect. It is also Aylmer, who turns this into a crusade of his obsession over defying nature vs. the mark.

The process of growing in a character can be treacherous process. This process was demonstrated well by Reverend Dimmesdale in the novel, The Scarlett Letter. Nathaniel Hawthorne’s style sets up Dimmesdale demise impeccably, giving the reader a deep and insightful look at Dimmesdale. Hawthorne explains the destruction of Dimmesdale, which is due to committing adultery with Hester, with his continued exacerbating health and the letter A throughout the novel. Hawthorne continuously comments about Reverend Dimmesdale’s ailing health, leading the reader to assume that the sin is eating him up from inside.
“Why, then, had he come hither? Was it but the mockery of penitence? A mockery, indeed, but in which his soul trifled with itself. He had been driven higher by the impulse of that Remorse which dogged him everywhere” (Hawthorne 138) here dimmesdale can 't face the justice of what he has done wrong which is why the author called him a coward and is the reason why he kept his secrets because he is a coward to admit it to and face the consequences which is why later the guilt of keeping them eats him from the inside.

Sir Gawain succeeded in upholding his virtues and the Chivalric Code countless times throughout the story. One of the earliest signs of chivalry Sir Gawain shows can be seen at King Arthur’s court, where the Green Knight first appeared before the Knights and challenged them to a game. Sir Gawain shows courage by bravely accepting the challenge, but he also shows humility by praising the other knights and degrading himself by saying, “I am the weakest, I know, and the feeblest of wit, and to tell the truth, there would be the least loss in my life.” (Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl Poet, pg. 8)
