" Let's stop for the night," was said by Percy Jackson, the protagonist in the Lighting Thief. Percy Jackson's personalities are bravery, smart, and curious. That is what I think some of Percy's personalities are. Now In the book, Percy is brave because he killed a big bad beast. Truly Percy is curious because he asks a lot of questions about a lot of things.

“It seems to me that you might create any sort of character in a novel and there would be at least one person just like him.” -Natsume Sōseki. In Jane Eyre, this is clearly depicted through two important characters. By reading into Brontë’s writing style and looking at the characters’ internal actions, it can be determined that Bertha is the human manifestation of Edward Rochester’s evil personality. Her traits and actions correlate to the dark side of Rochester, and it is clear that she reflects his past.
At the most times, writers express the idea of good and evil by light and darkness or white and black. Light or white is good, and dark or black is bad. In Beowulf, evil is typically represented by darkness and shadowy figures. This concept is clear in this quotation "Then out of the night came
Demons play a large part in this religious concept, as demons are believed to be the punishers of evil and can create evil in the world. Demons also represent the overall evil in the world and the evil that is inside people. Demons are overall a symbol of evil and sin in Judaism. Lilith, an important demon in Judaism is one of these demons that creates evil.

In the world today and in the past, humans have always had a dark, manipulative side to themselves. Often times, that corrupted part of us can be unlocked in situations that bring about our insecurities. People go through numerous methods to be able to cope and face their threats without revealing their inner darkness that has manifested over time. In Mary Maloney’s case in “Lamb to the Slaughter,” a short story by Roald Dahl, she loses her sense of innocence and self-control to terminate the threat as a way of protection. Through the usage of a variety of literary devices in Dahl’s story, he reveals that every person has an inner darkness that can be triggered by situations that can affect his or her ability to think rationally.

“The descent to hades is the same from every place” said the ancient Greek philosopher Anaxagoras. Nowhere is that sentiment anywhere better mirrored than in C.S. Lewis’ book “The Screwtape Letters,” which consists of a series of letters written by an elder demon (the title character) to a junior devil advising him about how to tempt souls to hell; he speaks often of the “time-tested” ways of seducing lost souls.
