The Devil and Tom Walker
Trustworthiness and thankfulness. This two values are very related to the story named The Devil and Tom Walker, although at first sight is rarely noticed. You may ask, ¿Are trustworthiness and thankfulness reflected in actions at all? Well, let’t talk about it part by part:
In The Devil an Tom Walker there are 4 characters which could reflect this two values. First I will talk of Tom. Tom and The devil, they show on a weird way this tow values. When Tom accepted The Devil’s deal he trusted in some way The Devil’s “good intention”, although the purpose was to be an evil money lender, and in this action we could also notice the thankfulness, Tom’s thankfulness, because The Devil gave him what he wanted, wealthy.
Trustworthiness is also noticed when Tom’s wife looks up for the devil, and she trusts that he could make her wishes come true, but we all know that it finished with this hateful woman mysteriously disappearing.
Then we could talk about the people who needed Tom’s help, Tom’s money lending deals. Although the accepted Tom’s deal because of necessity, they trusted Tom, they trusted that they where going to a good place, with a professional, good intended guy, but they faced someone who just made a deal with the devil.
Lastly we could assume that The Devil was thankful, very thankful when he went to take his part of the deal, take Tom’s soul. We all know that lastly tom was trying to regret the deal with The Devil, by been a religious guy, making good actions, but he lied and somehow by lying of his actions, and affronting “Take by The Devil”, this mysterious guy, that we all know as The Devil showed up and took his part.
