  • Essay On Good And Evil

    Theodicy is a term which describes the problem with evil in the world and begs the question, if an all-knowing, all-powerful God exists, why does he allow evil to persist among his followers? This paper will seek to examine the relationship between good and evil and attempt to provide some explanation as to how evil continues to exist in a world in which God is a part of so many peoples’ lives.

    Iago is an outstanding villain. The consummate skill with which he joins together in a single steady chain his many plans for evil is a mark of genius. He neither respects moral nor grand nobleness. All matters pure and noble are seen as below his "learned spirit." The very quintessence of his nature is his effortless reversing in the order of good and evil in an effort to make the good appear the evil and vice versa. Another factor to be remembered is, that the poet has no longer made lago a…
