8 In The Art of Fiction John Gardner says: A novel is like a symphony in that its closing movement echoes and resounds with all that has gone before.... Toward the close of a novel.... unexpected connections begin to surface; hidden causes become plain; life becomes, however briefly and unstably, organized; the universe reveals itself, if only for the moment, as inexorably moral; the outcome of the various characters' actions is at last manifest; and we see the responsibility of free will. Recommended Listening: 1.Mahler’s 5 th Symphony (Lord of the Rings) 2.Dvorak’s 8 th (what we’ve listened to) 3.Beethoven’s 5 th (Da da da daaaaa!)
