The Count of Monte Cristo/ Edmond Dantes put Danglars in the same/ if not better conditions than he was in during the original sin.
This is again, a compromise between the Bible’s teachings, and the laws of old.
Document B clearly says, “If a man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put out.” What justice can be clearer taking what was taken?
Plato’s true utopia idea of Revenge would be an equal punishment inflicted upon the original sinner.
However, this revenge sometimes goes to far and is consequently not justice.
This notion of Revenge and justice is often in literature, one of the better-known being the novel The Count of Monte Cristo, written by Alexandre Dumas.
As soon as Dantes miraculously escapes and returns to the world with riches, he sees it as a sign that God has opened for him the door of revenge.
No longer does the reader recognize the pre-prison Dantes.
The theme of The Count of Monte Cristo is one of vengeance and forgiveness, power and powerlessness.
When Dantes is unfairly given a life-prison sentence by his enemies (Villefort, Danglars, and Fernand), he spends every waking moment planning his revenge.
