Good Vs. Evil In The Scarlet And The Black

Good Essays
Register to read the introduction… We know that the forces of good in terms of World War II came out as successful because the Allies recaptured Rome in June, 1944 and won the war in 1945 with the D-Day Invasion in 1944. The rivalry between O’Flaherty and Kappler ended in a victory for Monsignor because Kappler was captured in 1945 and was questioned by the Allied powers for the crimes he committed during the war. Also, he learns that his wife and children were smuggled into Switzerland and Kappler secretly knows it was Monsignor O’Flaherty who did it because previously, he had asked Monsignor to save his family in a one-on-one meeting. This very sincere action by the Monsignor exemplifies the success of good in the film, and also in the world. The last examples of the success of the forces of good in the film is when Kappler was visited by O’Flaherty many times during his prison sentence, and when Kappler is baptized in the hands of monsignor O’Flaherty, showing how goodness in the world will always conquer
