The epilogue of the novel A Wise Mans Fear follows the pattern discussed on the page A Silence of Three Parts.

Chapter summary Edit

The Waystone Inn lay in silence, and it was a silence of three parts."

The first silence Edit

A hollow echoing quiet, made by things that were lacking:

  • The lack of rain
  • The lack of lovers
  • The lack of music

The second silence Edit

Like an endless in drawn breath. The second silence remains because distant noises of revelry are too faded.

The third silence Edit

You might feel it in a dozen locks, turned tight to keep the night away, in the clay jugs of cider and in the bottling ache of bruises that bloomed across a body..
