One being “the tempter” (Thessalonians 3:5). Once Satan has obtained his followers in the pits of hell, there is no standing a chance. Early in book II of Milton’s Paradise Lost Satan states “I give not Heave for lost” (Book II, 14). Satan looks for the good people, those who follow the word of God. Not the liars, thieves, and murderers he already has them under his spell.
Joseph B. Wirthlin quoted “Honesty is of God and dishonesty of the devil; the devil was a liar from the beginning”. The devil and Daniel Webster and The devil and Tom walker were both great stories. They were similar in some ways and different in other ways. Although both stories are about bargaining with the devil, they are different in what happens. In the stories the devil has been depicted in different forms.
Characteristics such as greed, lust, envy, pride, sloth, and gluttony are examples. In The Devil and Tom Walker the author portrays archetypes in the characters Tom Walker, Mrs. Walker, and the Devil. Initially, archetypes can be found in Tom Walker. The archetype that Tom portrays is that of greed. The narrator explains, “… there once lived near this place a meagre miserly fellow of the name of Tom Walker.” (Irving online).

Nathaniel Hawthorne, in his novel, The Scarlet Letter, combines the archetypes of the Outcast and the Devil in Hester Prynne, while also developing a new mentor/initiate relationship between Hester and Dimmesdale to show the pitfalls of accommodation to authority versus free thought. In Chapters 17 and 18, Hester Prynne embodies the Devil not as the evil adversary of heaven seen in Christian cosmology, but as the temptress toward freedom, even against the wishes and conventions of the surrounding society. Outside of Christianity, the devil figure represents temptation, freedom, personal power, new and daring thought, and, in its association with death, great change. As a result of her freedom of speculation remarked upon in previous chapters, Hester is able to suggest that she and Mr. Dimmesdale “leave it all behind” (pg. 155), which, to the rule-following
He calls on Saint Paul, who hunted his enemies and executed them, in ancient days, to assist and then childishly demands to his closest supporters to follow him. In this tantrum like outburst the audience sees the villain of Richard; a glimpse of his nature. He remains an antihero, especially in this scene. Throughout his “cleansing” of his coveted kingdom, he paves the way for his rival, the Earl of Richmond to take England without much in the way of political blocking. In effect, Richard cleanses the House of York of any of its powerful members, leaving England ripe for the taking; after the death of Richard.
Out of respect for his mother and a belief that she should have been buried earlier, Darl tries to burn the coffin in one of the most selfless acts in the novel.

Perhaps from their own understanding of selfishness, the children are able to accept their father’s actions.
As I open the door to the throne room Ruvik is already there standing before the knelt kill I charge head on I knew a duel with Ruvik was inevitable. He turned around and there my brother Ruvik stood before me. “Dear brother how long has it been since the night you drove the sword through my heart or are you still telling everybody the king did?” “Well brother I was the king as such a point cheating on my wife I had to get away so that’s why I appointed Josef as the new king I had to get away, but when he offered me a position as chancellor I could hardly refuse.

In this, Creature relates Victor to Satan in Paradise Lost by John Milton. But, Victor is not ultimately who relates to Satan. Creature sees himself as the abandoned Satan, cast away by the Creator. Paradise Lost tells the story of the Forbidden Fruit in an attempt to show Satan as an usurper ultimately lost to his desired world, God’s world. This story is similar to the Book of Genesis in that it contains the similar themes of betrayal, loss of innocence, and sin.

One of the more prominent characters in the story is the preacher Reverend Parris whom is the pastor within the town, and as the story progresses it becomes more apart to the reader that he is more like many modern people than any of the other characters in the play. So three modern Interpretations of Reverend Parris are Ebenezer Scrooge, Donald Trump, and the entirety of humanity. For my First example I choose Ebenezer, because in a sense he is a older version of Parris. First both are men in their later years
