Mrs. Johnson and Maggie are capable of forming cognitive opinions quite as ... ... middle of paper ... ...rs. Johnson drags Maggie into the room because she realized that she cannot always get what she wants every time she demands for it. At the end of the day, I see Dee's character as a weakness because with all the education and sophistication she does not know the true importance of family and heritage.
The character of Mephastophilis plays a pivotal role in Dr Faustus as it is through him that Marlowe expresses his views on sin, redemption and damnation. Mephastophilis presents a particularly intriguing portrayal of hell and encapsulates the audience from his very first appearance on stage.

We’re all in the same game, just different levels; dealing with the same hell, just different devils. This idea perfectly explains the basic components and structure of Hell in the classic story of Dante 's Inferno. Alighieri builds hell in his story for the entertainment of his readers with multiple underlying and discrete messages about politics and religion from his time period. To grow on the politics in his story there is the character Virgil, the ghostly poet who will lead Dante through hell to his divine illumination. In his story there are nine circles of hell, getting smaller with more severe punishments as you go.
