There is a continuous struggle between good and evil throughout the story, each part wanting to overcome another.

Name of book (and relevance to the story) - The book 's title is "The Old Jest", I think it 's called like that because the story is about a young 18 year old girl who isn 't taken really seriously, people see her as a child who doesn 't know nothing about life, they see her as a "jest".
