I hadn't really been aware of the difference so this is an interesting topic, buried in the real estate ads :-) I tended to see the Daedra as more demonic although I knew they were not all evil. More like amoral or just wild.

Anyhow I wanted to check into Monomyth, which has ties to the Hero's Journey, and that led me to a fairly cool TES related site: http://www.imperial-library.info/

Lots of lore and information there.

EDIT: And after doing some deeper reading, the lore really explains why the Thalamor really dislike the idea of Talos and why this is such a an issue. My character has developed an almost pathologicla hatred of the Thalamor and hunts them down wherever he finds them.
