    Good vs. Evil

    • Maguire’s re-writing of the Witch’s history makes many comments about the writing of histories and fictional narratives.

    • How is it that the ‘good guys’ always seem to win and the ‘bad guys’ meet their downfalls?

    • Do those who struggle against power win only when that power is destroyed?

    • Should history be as black and white as good struggling against bad?
