In determining the meaning of the last chapter and the struggle between Peter Quint the Governess and her pupil Miles one must stop and think about what it is that they are trying to do battle with Throughout the story there seems to be clear evidence that there is some sort of evil power that is trying to transform the children Miles and Flora into tools of evil for Peter Quint and Miss Jessil Or at least that is what the Governess seems to be witnessing during her task of running Bly The reader must make a choice as to what they believe to be true during the interactions with the Governess and the ghosts if there are ghosts in the story At first it seemed that the Governess was out of touch with reality and had some mental issues of her own But as the evidence revealed itself its clearly understood that there was a battle for her to fight She was to fight for the safety of the children whom she had been appointed to care for The Governess first impression of the children was that they were angels however in time the children were marked as possessed by the very evil that she had to protect them from In the last chapter of this grueling struggle between the ghosts and the Governess the stage is set and the Governess had already lost the battle with Miss Jessel over Flora This occurs due to the fact that Flora had never left the grounds of Bly making it easy for the ghost to overcome the little girl But the battle for the life of Miles would prove to be the last chance to save the children As for Miles he had stayed at a school away from Bly for about a year giving him a chance to have other experiences This poses an obstacle for the ghost of Peter Quint to transform
