    Click on link and re-read Epilogue. Explain how this epilogue brought closure to the story? Insert quotes from the epilogue:  https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B78f1QDeNznOZjdiQ0ZGOXZsa0E An epilogue or epilog is a piece of writing at the end of a work of literature or drama, usually used to bring closure to the work. It is presented from the perspective of within the story; when the author steps in and speaks directly to the reader, that is more properly considered an afterword. The opposite is a Prologue - a piece of writing at thebeginning of a work of literature or drama, usually used to open the story and capture interest. An epilogue is a final chapter at the end of a story that often serves to reveal the fates of the characters. Some epilogues may feature scenes only tangentially related to the subject of the story. They can be used to hint at a sequel or wrap up all the loose ends. They can occur at a significant period of time after the main plot has ended. In some cases, the epilogue has been used to allow the main character a chance to "speak freely." An epilogue can continue in the same narrative style and perspective as the preceding story, although the form of an epilogue can occasionally be drastically different from the overall story. It can also be used as a sequel.   [edit] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epilogue
