Tess argues that a villain who is unpredictable and untrustworthy is a sympathetic villain because they keep us readers on edge. What the villain is going to do next keeps us engaged with the whole story and complicates how we look at them because we are constantly trying to figure them out. Collins argues that we are meant to read about “three dimensional villains” with complicated pasts and complicated motives in order to sympathize and really enjoy them as a character. Game of thrones is a show that directly focuses on villains. Tywin Lannister is definitely a villain that keeps us on edge.
Throughout the novel, Twain provides numerous commentaries on the morality of characters. His display of deception in the story continually serves to improve the reader?s understanding of a character?s moral integrity, based on the nature and intent of the lie. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain uses the lies of numerous characters to better define the moral ambiguity of those characters. Twain portrays the complete lack of moral fiber in the King and the Duke through their cons and deceit. On numerous accounts, the King and the Duke lie to others exclusively for self-serving and wicked motives.
The claims that Stephen King makes throughout his essay, has implied that we not only crave horror but we need some type of horror in our lives. Horror allows human to release that insanity we have lingering within ourselves.Though, if we do not have our cathartic release to free all the wicked emotions, then it stays bottle up within our bodies. We keep it there, never going away, and it grows bigger and bigger until it finally takes control. However, we all do not want to end up like Jack the Ripper, Springheel Jack, or any other famous killers in the horror films we watch. Stephen King’s three claims are true to mankind and related to humans daily but it depends on how we respond.
Toward the middle of the story, Satan acted almost as a political figure; he knew when and what to say to persuade other angels to follow him. Some reader suggests that Satan is the protagonist of the story because he struggled to combat his mistrusts and weaknesses. Nonetheless this goal was evil and Adam and Eve turned out to be the pure heroes at the end of the story while they help begin to fix humankind’s evil fate. There are several reasons why Milton focused so much Satan and gave him all the good lines. It is important to know the changes Satan progressed throughout the story.
In this novella everyone has the potential of becoming the evil person that they see in each other. By demonstrating the darkness in all he allows us to see what’s truly on the inside of these people.

The readers were told about these witches so briefly as a part of the evil history of Cheshunt. Towards the end of the novel the same thing happens to Nathanial “I cuddled his limp, gruesome body to my chest, rocking backwards and forwards.” However it wasn’t the witches at this time but ordinary kids doing evils work, using something Nathanial loved and cared so deeply about and taking it so gruesomely away to make him fall into place in society.

For example, his wife, Nuala O’Shea, and all the other women in the series (Dora, sister flow, or Saoirse) have saved him more than he saved himself. And that the role of the women extremely changed, with the new feministic ideas and developments they have shown this enormous surge of influence throughout the book that literally keep Henry on his feet. In conclusion, Roddy Doyle puts a good amount of magical realism to play around with the readers mind and to take off a bit of the historical dullness with the grotesque and satirical moments.
He reveals to us that a fairy tales can defy logic and expectations. The complexity of Carroll’s ingenuity writing Alice in Wonderland has been dubbed an aspect of literary disobedience. The way he utilized childhood curiosity in his book opened our eyes to various perspectives of what’s sane and what isn’t. With his writing skills compared to other writers during his time, Carroll was a misfit to society. He made us realize that everyone has their own viewpoint on how things should work but if a person’s viewpoint differs from another is that considered disobedience?
It is with his first crime that the monster steps outside the range of victim and into the territory of the wicked. Marking his passage is the following line, “I too can create desolation; …this death will carry despair to him, and a thousand other miseries shall torment and destroy him” (Shelley 171). Here is where the crux of the argument resides; the issue is not the evidence, rather, it is the form in which the evidence is provided. The story explains the monster’s many evils, but by continuously reminding the reader that the reason behind his actions are the past mistreatment, everyone takes sympathy in the
In conclusion, this whole novel is based on good versus evil. The symbolism in the novel helps to portray that as much as possible, with the conch and Ralph, Piggy, and Simon representing the “good,” and the sow’s head and Jack and his hunters representing the “evil.” One of the main themes of The Lord of the Flies is man’s inhumanity to man. It is also compared to the book of Genesis in the Bible. This novel deals with all the corruption in the world, and no matter whom you are, while reading it, you can always relate it to real life situations.
