Since God had punished them by their exile to Hell, Satan takes advantage of this situation. He evaluated the hand he was dealt with and formulated a plan with Beelzebub. They vowed to that “to do ill” would be their “soul delight”. Whatever good and pure actions of God would follow, Satan and his legion of angels would “pervert that end”. This speech and resolution of Satan is the point of contention with various critics about whether or not Satan is truly a hero.
In which, Satan withstands the subtle title of an embellishing evil as well as the opening of danger given the opportunity. Throughout Paradise Lost, Satan is living his time of existence through sins and lies, leaving evil in every path he takes. Since this is Milton’s portrayal of the fall of man, once can assume assume that much is a fictional account; however, much of Milton’s poem comes from the book of Genesis. Scripture references the Book of Genesis, in which Eve is tempted by Satan; who appears so deceivingly in serpentine form. By eating the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, she indulges herself within the fallacious fate of the devils corruptive nature.
How far do you agree that Oliver Cromwell led an evil regime but left a great ideal? For centuries there has been a debate as to whether Oliver Cromwell was a murderer and a tyrant or a conquering hero. As a very religious man who relied heavily on signs he thought were of God to take action, Cromwell’s strongest wish had always been to get to an agreement before having to resort to more ruthless means to achieve his goals. Thus, it could be argued that the demonization of Cromwell is only well-founded and deserved in the eyes of those who suffered the consequences of his acts, or lack thereof. However, his actions, for better or worse, shaped the future of the land, which no English ruler had ever achieved.
We can say that Doctor Faustus is also a Christian play, because it deals with themes of Christianity during the play. First there is idea of sin, which Christianity considers something that is against the will of God. According to Christianity, Doctor Faustus’s sin is the act of making pact with Lucifer, by disobeying God and making pact with the devil. In Christian religion even the worst sin can be forgiven through the power of Christ, who according to Christian belief he is God’s son. After Doctor Faustus’s sin where he makes pact with Lucifer, he still has opportunity for redemption, all that he needs to do is to ask God for forgiveness.
creation of the natural order Satan became vain about his beauty and position and his heart became rebellious against God Apparently he was able to secure a considerable following among the angels resulting in their expulsion from Heaven Since that day Satan devotes himself to opposing the work of God in every way possible and to attempting to destroy all of the good that God has created in the natural order He lucifer is allowed to continue this way for a period but will ultimately be confined to Hell for eternity so Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against the rulers against the authorities against the cosmic powers over this present
He also views Victor Frankenstein as the modern Prometheus that is stated in the title of the book. He argues Victor rebels against the divinely arranged order, steals spark from heaven, as illustrated in the book and creates a creature in his image (Cantor para. 3). However, just like Prometheus, he ends up bringing destruction and disaster upon the very people he was trying to help. The monster created by Victor plays a good role of the Prometheus in Shelly’s story (Shelley 104).
Geikie that “Our Character is but the stamp on our souls of free choices of good and evil we have made through life”. If we look into account of Satan’s evil deed compare to his good deed, he is surely to fall in evil side. However Satan’s character in Paradise Lost is another piece of ambiguity for reader and critics. Milton had portrayed Satan in such a manner that it is hard for us reader to take side of Satan either as villain or tragic hero. Though he might be incarnation of evil, he had nothing to do with other than God.
The Bible describes Evil as a sin. Even in the very beginning of time evil was brought onto man by Satan, who concealed himself in serpent form to Adam and Eve, when they ate the apple from the forbidden tree. No matter how hard humans try to avoid evil they always find themselves contradicting their moral thoughts with evil.

In The Matrix, the machines are portrayed as humanity’s creation turned evil who then enslaved the human race, but The Animatrix gives
In the end, all abandon Faustus, the scholars and the Good Angel leaving him to face the torturing devils alone. His mutilated body is later found, and the Chorus enters to explain the tragic lessons to be learned from Doctor Faustus 's regretted choices.” 7 Conclusion Overall, Christopher Marlowe was a great Elizabethan playwright; he wrote the moral play doctor Faustus, he was famous for his proposed “atheism” which turned out to be likely false or not as we know “atheism” now and used it to cover up the fact that he was a spy, but authorities possibly killed him for being accused of “atheism” which opened up many mysterious things about his life.
