Benevolence is an act of kindness towards others. Shakespeare has tried to portray a benevolent view of life which comes to exist only after malevolent order is destroyed and benevolent order is restored. Contrary to the tragedies, central characters in the last plays are benevolent, their actions, their thoughts and objectives of their lives lead to the design of benevolence. There is a continuous tug of war between benevolence and malevolence and in this tug of war benevolence ultimately prevails.
