This is quite possibly one of the worst definitions I've ever read. I've attempted to make some changes. "For example, if there is a story about a great hero who made many accomplishments, then the epilogue could be about what he did when he settled down." <-- I'm not quite sure what to make of this particular bit; I just edited it to make it seem more smooth.
This article is terrible - history of the phrase? usage? examples?
- Seconded. Since when are all epilogues a few pages long? I've read a few that were probably closer to thirty pages. And since when are all epilogues spoken directly to the reader? Whoever wrote this obviously hasn't read many books. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ARBlackwood (talk • contribs)
- Needs cleanup, not deletion - despite how bad this page is, I'm sure that epilogues are notable enough to spawn a featured article, given enough eyes and contributors. Nihiltres 03:19, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
December 16th - I've edited this page a little, tried to give it some more structure. It's definitely an article that needs to be kept, the only reason I'm here is out of curiousity for different forms of epilogues. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs)
- The structure is good, but I removed the commercial link you added (those are bad), and added a mention of a notable epilogue under the drama section. In addition, some of the unstructured material you replaced was good, so I restored some to the intro section. Just noting changes - Nihiltres 17:23, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
Could someone knowledgeable add Greek word origin information? Imogenne 20:18, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
I'm removing the section stating that epilogues are written in the same narrative form as the precluding work. This is simply incorrect, the narrative form of a epilogue is quite often different altogether. MasteroftheWord (talk) 18:07, 14 July 2009 (UTC)Last modified on 16 March 2011, at 14:51
