Why Is Bad So Good? - English poet John Milton once wrote, “…good and evil we know in the field of this world grow up together almost inseparably; and the knowledge of good is so involved and interwoven with the knowledge of evil.” With this interwoven information, modern audiences are usually able to differentiate the “good guys” from the “bad guys” in a movie or television show. A murderous meth kingpin, a rebellious teenage rapist, and a Los Angeles hit man who quotes Holy Scripture before killing his targets — not your typical group of likeable personalities....   [tags: relating to bad main characters] 572 words

The Invisible Man, by Ralph Ellison - How do we reconcile personal freedom with the need to abide by the interests of society. Should we celebrate individuality or the sacrifice thereof. Or rather, should the individual be subjected to the masses, or should the masses be subjected to the individual. (Allen 144). A myriad of writers have attempted to answer these questions to different ends. In A Clockwork Orange and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Burgess and Kesey reach similar conclusions by employing insane characters to discuss the negative influences society has on the individual; in both stories, characters must endure the mind-altering treatments of morally ambiguous scientists in order to better “fit” into society....   [tags: Individuality, Society, Absurdism]
