You Say He's Evil, He Says He Isn't
"The Misfit openly acknowledges his own evil. When the Grandmother tries to type him as a "good" man, i.e. a gentleman, he answers 'Nome, I ain't a good man...' and then adds: 'but I ain't the worst in the world neither'(148)" (Desmond 130)
In this passage, Desond slight contradicts himself with the statement he makes and the example he gives. He states that the Misfit acknowledges his own evil, but in the example he gives the Misfit acknowledges he isn't all good, but he isn't all bad. Isn't that how all people are? Just because everyone has some bad points to them doesn't mean they're evil, especially if there are good aspects about them as well.
