Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are very different individuals Jekyll is handsome and “good” in the eyes of the community, whereas Hyde is ugly, “evil” and describes as “like a money” when viewed through society’s glasses. Hyde is illustrated as animalistic and deformed mainly to evoke an evil character. When the murder of Sin Danvers Crew happens, Hyde showed the symbol of evil, by beating up Mr. Crew so hard with the cane that his bones are “audibly shattered”.

This makes us question what is in the potion and why someone would he take it if it causes him pain. In turn this allows us to understand that Dr Jekyll enjoys the evil side of his nature. Similarly duality is important in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Shakespeare uses duality a lot in his plays particularly in Macbeth. Like RLS he uses his words to show the battle between good and evil.
The author supports this idea further because Dr. Jekyll had no choice but to kill Mr. Hyde and his evil ways to save his good self. “The powers of Hyde seemed to have grown with the sickliness of Jekyll. And certainly the hate that now divided them was equal on each side” (Stevenson 1718). Dr. Jekyll knew that the two identities could not coexist anymore. He would have to choose between the good and evil.
First of all if we want to introduce Beowulf, we can say: he is the brave hero who fought the monster and saved the people from his evil. And if we want to introduce Grendle, we can say: he is the monster who was seeking revange, and all he wanted was killing people. These two characters show us the obvious difference between Good and Evil. Good: is about everything is morally and right; a doing seeking the common good. But Evil: is everything immoral and malice; a doing seeking personal ambitions.
Anosha Hussain An exemplary message everyone should take in, no matter the person, is that when committing a discourteous act, guilt could end up as a result, as guilt is to the spirit what pain is to the body. In the story, “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, the narrator, considered as a madman by some, deviously takes out his plan of murdering an innocent old man for his “vulture eye”. When the narrator 's plan didn 't go as he wanted it to, he revoltingly crushed the old man, whose heart was vigorously pounding with fear, with a bed until he couldn 't breathe. The dreadful pounding of the heart later appeared in the narrator 's thoughts as a form of guilt, which forced him to go psychotic. The overall mood determined by the text, darkness and madness, was influenced by several elements to help further advance it.
claim1: Believes he is a great leader and gives into his tragic flaw: ambition. Which leads him to commit a series of crime. claim2: he is influenced by people around him claim3: A person with great power who is later taken down General statement: Although Macbeth got influenced by people and mislead by the witches, his ambition of gaining power blinded him, and didn’t let him see straight. All he wanted was power, and he would do everything he could to get it, even if it meant murder. With all this said it is clear that Macbeth is no tragic hero, rather he is a greedy man who fell into his
We all like to think that evil is not born within us, but rather nurtured into to us; while this may be true for some, others have evil born directly into them. When man toys with the powers reserved for only God, God strikes back with a wicked evil to show many the power that they really lack. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein contains a prime example of a being born of unnatural causes and thus having these evil urges that they cannot control. Frankenstein’s monster is a highly intelligent being, and hence he is very manipulative. He pulls at the heartstrings of Victor’s emotions but Victor can see the true evil that is within him.
The anger and frustration would take over one’s self. Dr. Jekyll in this novella turns into Hyde too often and this leads him to spontaneously turn into Hyde at the worst moments.

Having Hyde as a second personality he changed from a good kind doctor to an evil monster with o soul. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was just one person with two personalities. He was a troubled man that needed help. He wanted an alter ego to handle what he really wanted to do; it was his cover so he doesn’t lose any of his status as Dr. Jekyll. I you think about it Dr. Jekyll was an evil man who wanted to get away with many wrong things, and thus he created his mask Mr.
There are comparisons between him and the devil throughout the novel - The author goes out of his way to refer to Spade as a “blonde Satan”(3). To be sure, Spade is no angel; his sole desire, trumping the well-being of his coworkers and friends, is to outsmart those around him and to emerge victorious in
It is even harder to get a grip on if someone has never had to experience what it is like to feel that way. It is a war with yourself. Jeykll is a good person at heart, but when he drinks this drug, he turns into a monsterous being, an evil person hurting people around him, but mostly destroying himself. People have different ways of coping with their own or someone else’s addictions. I have had to do both, niether of them are easy, and are very confusing.
