THE ENDING

In the end, Jack Morton returns to Bala Park Island after some sort of event in Barrie. He or someone else brings back some books, one of which is Don Quixote. He reads this book, and falls into a profound melancholy silence. Not even Marin can bring him out of it. He deteriorates on his deathbed. Then he reveals that he sees that his entire life was merely a shadow of a greater work he was unconsciously imitating. Life disappoints him, and he cannot continue. He dies.

I was going to spend twenty years getting to this scene!
