Good V.S. Evil in Literature
Transcript of Good V.S. Evil in Literature
“With his long sharp nails he opened a vein in his breast. When the blood began to spurt out, he took my hands in one of his, holding them tight and with the other crashed my neck and pressed my mouth to the wound so that I must either suffocate or swallow… I who have tried to walk in meekness and righteousness all my days” (Stoker 306). Mina’s recollection highlights her purity while casting a negative light over Dracula and his evil and supernatural abilities. The Force In Star Wars, an evil power occupies the galaxy, and Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbaka, and Princess Leia must fight the evil in order to return balance to the galaxy. Amelia Hill, author of the article “What Star Wars is About: The Cyclical Struggle of Good and Evil”, discusses this closure by saying: “[T]he final moment of Vader turning back to good lends a finality to the struggle of good against evil” (Hill 1). When Vader returns to the side of good, there is no longer any evil to fight, and the series can end with the triumph of good over evil. Star Wars The Force Star Wars Darth Vader represents evil. Good Evil Darth Vader kills innocent people and tries to kill all those who attempt to defeat him and save the galaxy. Stories that focus on the battle of good versus evil remain current because people are confronted by good and evil everywhere. The desire for revenge creates this type of inner struggle between good and evil, and this struggle exists, regardless of time or place. War remains popular because it is a constant in society, as there is always war somewhere in the world. The current political atmosphere still reflects certain strong conservative values concerning sex and homosexuality, keeping the themes of Dracula alive and controversial. the film Star Wars also displays a battle of good versus evil. Similarly, Star Wars is a fight between good and evil, and because of this theme it remains popular decades after it was first released. Great works of literature can withstand centuries of political and social changes because their themes are ones that continue to be important regardless of such changes in the world.
