The story explores themes of love, jealousy, identity, and the search for meaning. Orual narrates her life story, chronicling her deep love for Psyche, her struggle with envy, and her eventual transformation. As the ruler of Glome, Orual becomes consumed by her possessive love for Psyche, which drives her to manipulate events and separate Psyche from the god she loves. Throughout the narrative, Orual questions the justice of the gods and challenges their existence. However, her journey forces her to confront her own flaws and limitations. Ultimately, she realizes the depth of her own self-deception and comes to understand the true nature of love. "Till We Have Faces" is a profound exploration of human nature, love, and the search for self-discovery. It delves into the complexities of human emotions and the transformative power of facing one's own flaws and accepting the mysteries of life.
