The Role Of Greed In The Devil And Tom Walker

Satisfactory Essays
My favorite story to read was The Devil and Tom Walker, which is about a man and his wife you are very greedy and mean. The man meets the devil in a swamp, and he offers Tom treasure in return for his soul. He refuses, and his wife, upon learning of the possible deal, attempts to make the deal herself. The devil kills her, and Tom then decides to make the deal himself. He then spends the rest of his life as a usurer and becomes very rich. However, he is still greedy and so the devil takes him away one day and he is never seen again. The message presented in The Devil and Tom Walker is about how greed leads to a bad life. This message is important because it shows people that even if you’re rich you won’t necessarily be happy.
