On p. 93, the chapter ends behind a while the direction, "This narrative has a successful end."
Pick one or over of these questions to answer:
(1) In postmodern philosophy and scholarly supposition, the fancy of an "ending" or equal of a "successful end" is questioned: what does it balance when a narrative ends? What does it balance to accept a "successful end?" Do we use Shakespeare's limitation of comedy: where everyone is paired off romantically and things are patent up? Here's The Sundays' subordinately lax lyric, "Here's Where the Narrative Ends:"
(2) How does the "knowledge" that the narrative ends happily favor our lection of it at this apex? How do we represent the equalts of the bulk, as sorrowful or unfortunate as they are behind this apex in the passage? (Part II and aftercited) Are the equalts to be represented as tests, as character-building, as things to be survived, balanceingful, balanceingless, etc.?
(3) How could you represent the direction aloft using a godly lens--one of the intellectual Pi believes in, or another?
