Ending

 

(Russian, kontsovkd), the conclusion of a literary work or section of a work. In poetry the ending is the final aphoristic line of a lyric poem (M. Iu. Lermontov’s “I am mournful for you are merry”), the concluding moral in a fable, the unexpected witty deduction in an epigram, or a refrain. In drama the ending may be a curtain line, such as Famusov’s in A. S. Griboedov’s Woe From Wit, “What will Princess Mar’ia Aleksevna say!” In epic works the ending, unlike the denouement, is not related directly to the action, rather, it is an author’s maxim (for example, “It’s a tedious world, gentlemen!” in N. V. Gogol’s The Story of How Ivan Ivanovich Quarreled With Ivan Nikiforovich), a description of the scenery, or an epilogue.
