This multidisciplinary collection brings together scholars from the fields of literature theology and linguistics who question and extend our taken-for-granted conceptions of 'The End.' It focuses on the ways in which endings are formally signaled in literature and sets these alongside parallel studies in journalism and film. However it is also concerned with larger philosophical and historical notions of closure impermanence rupture and apocalypse as well as the possibilities of -posthumous- being. It gives examples from fairytales Byron Longfellow Dillard Barnes and South African writers.'
