19. Resolution: Initial misfortune or lack is resolved

 

Disciplines > Storytelling > Propp's Morphology of the Folk Tale > 19. Resolution: Initial misfortune or lack is resolved

Previous: 18. Victory: Villain is defeated

Next: 20. Return: Hero sets out for home

 

Description

Symbol: K

The original act of villainy (A) is now undone by the conquest of the villain. Thus, for example, a spell may be broken, a treasure found or a captive freed.

The initial lack is now resolved and the associated desire satisfied, and the reader feels a great sense of relief and satisfaction as the main story completes.

Example

In Star Wars, Leia gets hold of the Death Star plans.

Discussion

Many stories end here, although there is also a fourth sphere of action that may occur, related to the homeward (and supposedly triumphant) return of the hero.
