Transcript: Happy Endings At the end of all of the stories, no matter what happens, people die. "And surprise, which is such a common feature of successful narrative is what happens when, to a degree, things do turn out differently" (Abbott, 59). "Once actions start in a certain way, we expect what follows to be consistent with the overall code" (Abbott 58). There is a limit to how much surprise readers will accept. Definition of Closure Closure "A story? No. No stories, never again" (Blanchot, 199). "When a narrative ends in such a way as to satisfy the expectations and answer the questions that it has raised" (Abbott, 230). For you, What defines closure? Readers interpret text in different ways. Some may find closure while others may not. Presence/Absence of Closure Ending versus Closure Common themes: Revenge, Love, Escape, Murder, Loss, Death, Happiness "Closure brings satisfaction to desire, relief to suspense, and clarity to confusion. It normalizes. It confirms the master plot. At the same time, we don't want closure too quickly. We seem to like the experience of remaining in doubt while moving toward closure" (Abbott, 64). Just because a narrative does not have closure, does not make it less of a narrative. Closure at the Level of Expectations Closure: "John and Mary die. John and Mary die. John and Mary die" (Atwood). Closure "It (closure) has to do with a broad range of expectations and uncertainties that arise during the course of a narrative and that part of us, at least, hopes to resolve, or close" (Abbott, 57). Suspense Closure, Suspense, & Surprise In your opinion, If the ending does not meet the expectations of the reader, can there be closure? The Madness of the Day "Certainly the key to suspense is the possibility, at least, that things could turn out differently" (Abbott, 59). Surprise Beyond the resolution of a story's main conflict Inner desire for answers to questions and fulfillment to expectations. Suspense is marked by the lack of closure. Desire for imbalance or tension "...the presence or absence of closure by itself cannot be taken as a standard of narrative failure or success" (Abbot, 64). Natural human inclination is to want conflict that is eventually resolved. Chains of suspense and surprise cause a fluctuating state of impatience, wonderment, and partial gratification. Human Nature
