Activity Overview


Several themes are present in the novel. Students can pick a theme to explore and should support their choice with specific details or events from the text. One prominent theme is good vs. evil. Princess Saralinda and Zorn of Zorna are seen as good, and the Duke is seen as evil.


An example of the good vs. evil theme is:


Good

"The Princess Saralinda was tall, with freesias in her dark hair, and she wore serenity brightly like a rainbow. It was not easy to tell her mouth from the rose, or her brow from the white lilac."


Evil

"She's not my niece," the lame man sneered. "Stole her from a king." He showed his lower teeth. "We all have flaws," he said, "and mine is being wicked."


Other themes that can be explored are: courage, bravery, and love.
