What is Evil?

Ryan Ciccozzi

My definition of evil:

"Disturbed and only does things for their own satisfaction"


My definition relates to the three stories because in "What a Thought" the wife seems mentally disturbed because she only has these horrible thoughts of killing her husband, my definition also relates to the story "The Lottery" because they only do this sacrifice for the satisfaction of others, and lastly my definition relates to "The Possibility of Evil" because the send of the letters (Miss Strangeworth) only sends these letters because she is disturbed and thinks she is doing the correct thing.
