Abstract [en]

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone are two novels that are quite different but both contain strong elements of good and evil. In this essay I will look at a collection of characters from each novel and chart their affinities towards either good or evil. By doing so I will also look at the differences and similarities in how good and evil is presented in the novels. Thus, I will show the different types of good and different ways of evil that are present, as well as compare the ways they are presented. My argument is that good and evil form a simpler dichotomy in Lion, where they are presented in a more black and white manner, while the two concepts are described in a more complex way in Philosopher's Stone as matters there are more shaded.
