The aim of this thesis is to analyse the concepts of good and evil in Henry James̕s two novels, The Wings of the Dove and The Golden Bowl. The main argument, which is supported with evidence from the novels and several articles and books, is that the conceps of good and evil permeate the novels, that Henry James̕s use of symbolism and imagery reinforces the illustration of these concepts, that the contextual understanding of these terms cannot be separated from the environmental, financial and contextual factors that influence the characters̕ responses to the world outside themselves and that human relations and the characters̕ relatedness to the world outside themselves constitute the point where good and evil reside.
