This over ambition creates the perfect balance between the extremes of flaw. “There is a desperate fatalism about Marlowe that the most desirable things are subject to cosmic veto” (source 9 226). Marlowe succeeds in accomplishing his ultimate goal of creating a character which vindicates his own beliefs. The damnation of Faustus as well as the life of Marlowe both prove to demonstrate that unchecked ambition lead to complete damnation and utter loss of happiness in society. Although Marlowe does well in humanizing Faustus, it is still clear how he was damned and why.
In conclusion, the Khaled Abou El-Fadl’s seem to coincide with my perception of evil and Anne Conway’s view of God since he implies that evil is a result of our lack of willpower that allows our goodness to be corrupted.

In this quote, Iago describes himself as a demonic Satan-like person contradicting God's quote 'I am that I am.' Indeed, Iago represents the very essence of the play's theme: appearance versus reality. In reality he is the cunning, untrustworthy, selfish, and plotting evil that the audience gets to know through his soliloquies, but in his appearance he is that same old, trustworthy, run of the mill Iago that they think they know so well. In fact, Othello, after he murders his own wife, accredits Iago as, 'An honest man he is, and hates the slime/ That sticks on filthy deeds.' Inopportunely for Othello, who seems to trust Iago so, Iago is the exact opposite of what Othello takes him to be.
The most prominent resemblance between Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) and the infamous Apocalypse Now (1979) is the glimmer sense of realism thorough the movie. The director, Francis Ford Coppola has been known for his verisimilitude; effortlessly creating and directing each setting in the film looks schematized and deliberately natural. Innately, the one of the most apparent functions of a setting is to create an impression of reality that presents the viewer a sense of a real place and time and the sensation of being there. His consciousness of realism admits the great importance of an authentic setting play in making his films overwhelmingly imaginable. With a judiciously supervision from the director, numerous factors such as location and setting, costume and visual design contribute to a successful plausible film.
There is the claim that there is an elitist group of filmmakers who have a distinct definable quality to all of their films regardless of whether they are considered good or bad quality films. In essence, the caliber of the film itself seems to be irrelevant to the theory. This group is categorized under the much sought after term of auteur. This said, a bad film made by an auteur is alleged to better than the best film made by a metteur en scene. This brings us to the idea of what can be considered when examining a metteur en scene.
These mediums, that reveal Twain’s attitude towards humanity, prove that his negative take on the human race is justified. According to Twain, humans are the lowest of creatures due to their war-like natures. At first, this statement may seem shocking, but the points proven in Twain’s, “The Damned Human Race,” show that this hypothesis may not be far from the truth. Throughout the essay, Twain takes over a persona that compares the behaviors of various species of animals and of man in similar situations. The results show that man is selfish, cruel, and greedy.
The use of Jack and Ralph as foils to each other shows the evilness of the human race and the conflicts we have with our own kind. Ralph and Jack are like two sides of the same coin, without one, there cannot be the other. Dispute between the two is inevitable and necessary for the action in the novel. Jack is not all bad, nor is Ralph all good. These two characters foil each other because their many similarities highlight the few differences.
He uses the Yahoos to show the complete opposite of a society ruled with no reason, but with only their own ugly desires. The Houyhnhnms do have their good sides and their bad sides, but the Yahoos are rotten through and through. The clash of the two types of peoples does seem to reflect much of the world of Swift’s era; the good….the rational, and the bad….the irrational.
Iago in William Shakespeare's Othello Works Cited Missing In Shakespeare's drama 'Othello', the reader is presented a tragedy of characters deeply affected by the clash of good and evil. The evil contained within Othello is by no means magical or mythical yet is represented by the character Iago. Iago has no conscience, no ability to perform good deeds. He is a psychopath, and is not capable of forming affectionate relationships or feeling guilt and concern over his behaviour. He is "an unbeliever in and denier of all things spiritual, who only acknowledges God, like Satan, to defy him" (William Robertson Turnbull, Othello: A critical Study, 269).
The Stranger tackles huge issues regarding the value of human existence. Camus's use of violence shows his characters’ true colors and looks at life/self-worth. His book helps to look at life differently, how some do, instead of the ideal purposeful and valuable. Yes, this is a disturbing work that spares no costs to deliver a raw and unexpected example of what Camus termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd."  Albert Camus, The Stranger, trans.
