Secondly, In Washington Irving's “ The Devil and Tom Walker” Tom Walker's wife displays her greed by hiding useless things that are mostly used by the husband and the wife lie eggs but she hides it.

As this portrayal of Satan may be comical to some people, it is far beyond who Satan truly is and just so happens to be imprecise and facetious to some degree.

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.

For persons to comprehend such organization, they should understand that the recounting of Dante tags along stringent doctrinal Christian principles. For instance, he says “Humans are souls that died by violence, they are all sinners to their final hours, in which the Heaven lamp shed its radiance” (Lovett and Joyce 19).
