Inventing Elliot- Final Mini Lesson

what is an epilogue
What is an EPILOGUE?
  • A section or speech at the end of a book or play that serves as a comment on or a conclusion to what has happened.
  • 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.
  • It 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.

Brainstorm with a neighbor: Have you ever read or viewed an epilogue?

purpose of an epilogue
Purpose of an Epilogue
  • The purpose of an epilogue is to add a little insight to some interesting developments that happen once the major plot is over.
  • Epilogues often act as a teaser trailer to any possible sequels that might be created later.
  • Sometimes the epilogue is used to add a little bit about the life/future of the main characters after the story itself has unfolded and wrapped up.
