The French word "dénouement" literally means "the unravelling" or "the unknotting." This story, so rich in allusion, oral tradition, and complexity of plot finally gets resolved, as much as Morrison will allow it to.

How well does Milkman complete his hero's journey?


This blog post is due July 24, with a response to your classmate by July 31.
