An epilogue appears at the end of a book, play, or other written work. It is a section that provides additional information, reflection, or commentary on the events that have unfolded throughout the work. Epilogues can take many forms, including letters, diary entries, or prose. They are often used to tie up loose ends in the narrative, provide closure for the reader, or offer final thoughts on the themes or messages of the work. Epilogues are a useful device for authors to communicate their intentions to readers and can be an effective way to leave a lasting impression.

“He loved Big Brother.” – George Orwell, “1984”

“The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.” – J.K. Rowling, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”

“I lingered round them, under that benign sky: watched the moths fluttering among the heath and harebells, listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass, and wondered how anyone could ever imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth.” – Emily Bronte, “Wuthering Heights”

“But that is the beginning of a new story – the story of the gradual renewal of a man, the story of his gradual regeneration, of his passing from one world into another, of his initiation into a new unknown life.” – Fyodor Dostoevsky, “Crime and Punishment”
