This paper examines the depiction of good versus evil in English literary works from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It includes works by Edmund Spenser, Geoffrey Chaucer, Christopher Marlowe, Sir Thomas More, and others. It specifically looks at the individual's journey to find a moral center. The paper takes a look at the commonalities in the theme of morality.

From the Paper:

"From the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, the search for morality or the test of one's morality is a dominant theme found in English literature, especially in those eras. The works themselves often involve a journey, during which the classic battle of good versus evil is depicted. An examination of six of the major works of those two time periods reveal that this morality struggle is waged by women as well as men. Certainly, the works yield major themes that they do not share. However, despite the diversity of the style of the writers and the diversity of form and content of the literature itself, the common aforementioned theme still holds. The fact that the authors of the works use different approaches and plots serve only to accentuate the commonalities."
