Abstract

The moral concept of hatred is a feeling, thinking and misjudging in response to notifications of loathing and feud. Generally, has different versions: one of these forms is the hate for unbelief, wickedness and rebellion against the norms of ethics and virtuous moral standards, which is the walk of righteousness. It is the right, wise and the deep understanding of a capacity for a sound judgment manner for the benefit of humanity, in contrast, hatred of humanity for the benefit of malicious minority is the second version of aversion. That foists harm to humanity and at the same time it exculpates the perpetrators of that evil action, as a hair is taken from dough, also for the benefit of the same minority. People who do such things with disposed inclinations, have no consciences and they should not be considered human beings any longer. This work will study the second kind of hatred with its forms in literature, as the latter is a reflection of life. It will also study and survey the descending of using these effigies in literature from being antagonists until they become the protagonist in the work of art, this ideology raises the readers’ sympathy towards these effigies, with reference to the work of Linda Woolverton’s Maleficent (2014) and John William Polidori’s Vampyre (1819). This era has witnessed a new movement of writing literature, that reverberates the axiom and truism throughout fictions. It could be called the Malignantism. This paper attempts to invite the contemporaries to face their own failure to maintain the old system of morality throughout working, writing and selecting what prove to be benevolence in novels, critical essays, researches and symposiums, marked by doing good and disposed to good, kind and generous things for humanity (the Benevolentism). This work will use the Hegelian theory and considerations of the detective work elements to unfold the real denouement of the fraudulent works of Woolverton’s Maleficent and John William Polidori’s Vampyre (1819). The conclusion will include the result of this study.
