NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIESLike an off-key violin concert, the Roman Empire, or food poisoning, all things must come to an end. Thankfully, this.

But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart? The villain, first of all, assumes a disguise.

Intriguingly, it comes at the hands of a little vain girl we first met tormenting the Baudelaires at the Austere Academy in Book the Fifth, nasty Carmelita Spats. His voice was a little squeaky, and it reminded the Baudelaires of.

This refusal causes their expulsion from the group, and possibly their deaths.

The End (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 13)

Their fate remains unknown. Madame Lulu plans to stop helping Olaf and join the twins but is thrown to hungry lions before she can do much good. Another minion, the man with hooks for hands, is found out to be the brother of an ally of the Baudelaires; he leaves crime for a while, and though he will ultimately deceive the trio and his long-lost sister Fiona regretfully joins him , the hooked one does for a time provide the Baudelaires reconnaissance.

Four other villains show no change at all—the bald man, the one who was neither man nor woman, the man with beard but no hair, and the woman with hair but no beard—but neither are they much remembered.

They are essentially stock characters, making their entrances and final exit, dwarfed by bigger and more rounded characters that create greater unpredictability, action, and ambiguity. One of the great tensions of the series is the desire to be noble, despite all the treachery one does.

Does it make you into a monster, or can you temper it in some way, or accept it and go in some other direction?

And then Olaf dies. This contradiction of returning to the one whom they tried to escape and who relentlessly tried to ruin them is the eternal Gothic paradox. Why even properly bury him rather than simply toss him to the surf and the sharks? Is it to prove that their souls were better than his? Or, oppositely, is it a helpless attraction back to what is also in them?

Whatever Olaf was and discovered, he was a constant presence, albeit a hellish one, in their lives. He was their immoral guardian, this one-eyebrowed lunatic, and he has helped shape the only perspective of reality they have, a view of good and evil all clouded together. We appreciate this dramatic irony: that the Baudelaires will suffer, be taken in, have their guardian duped by wily Olaf, and will soon be on the run for their lives.

Benighted Mr. Poe, who knows their past, will always be too slow to detect anything, too late coming in an emergency, unable to apprehend Olaf, and incapable of listening carefully to the children. With so much that is predictable, there is a strong suggestion that these are books where fates are merely played out and free will is a fanciful notion. One of the serious questions of these often cheeky books is whether we are in control of what we are doing, or if we are somnambulists.

Nothing comes to a sleeper but dreams.

By the Author

Lemony himself likes to brood on the topic of fate as the books play out, never with a conclusive answer, but certainly with a compelling question that connects his musing to literature and opera, to the orphans, and to us: Some people think destiny is something you cannot escape, such as death or a cheesecake that has curdled, both of which always turn up sooner or later.

And still other people think that destiny is an invisible force, like gravity,. In the opera La Forza del Destino, various characters argue, fall in love, get married in secret, run away to monasteries, go to war, announce.

They wonder and wonder at all the perils in their lives, and when the final curtain is brought down even the audience cannot be sure what all these unfortunate events may mean. Are their character traits essentially locked in place, not growing in personality, insight, and behavior after each trauma and crime? The most memorable Gothic novels do have round characters—Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights both have figures that, despite all their melodrama, quicken with life, depth, and changeability.

But does A Series have them?

Hundreds of Gothic novels do not have such multidimensional personalities and are still entertaining. What can be said for certain is that the three children go from utter innocence to becoming liars, thieves, and arsonists probably killing some of the Hotel Denouement guests in a horrible way. Will they continue now as if in a somnambulistic trance to kill someone they do know well? Gregory Maguire, an interviewer of Daniel Handler and a fan of his work raises this question: Are the books formulaic?

The fun derives from watching the formula at work. He has taken a small handful of storytelling tricks. They know this world, and most sadly, they recognize how it has changed them. In The End, unknowing Olaf almost reaches his own end a little early, and it would have come at the hands of three juvenile killers. In the first pages, altogether in a boat, the three orphans study Olaf leaning over the side, and all feel a powerful attraction to murder.

As the three debate on whether to kill, Lemony has a moral-development rumination: Some believe that everyone is born with a moral compass already inside them. Others believe that a moral compass develops over time, as a person learns about the decisions of others by observing the world and reading books.

In any case, a moral compass appears to be a delicate device. The Baudelaire orphans were not sure what they should do with this villain who was leaning so far over the boat that one small push would have sent him to his watery grave. Fated or not, Olaf straightens and grins, and the three did not have to make the decision.

For whatever perverse reason, Snicket will not show us what the three would have done. But if Olaf had stared one more minute at sea, I believe—from the short but mighty arguments made by the orphans for drowning him—the count would be undersea now. The last few chapters of four of the most famous novels in the genre close repeatedly with the words despair, despaired, and despairing namely, The Castle of Otranto, Vathek, The Monk, and Frankenstein.

Likewise, The Bad Beginning opens early with the worst despair, the death of parents. Snicket erects a marvellous frame to makes readers feel more. Our introduction to these children is when they are playing on Briny Beach and out comes Mr. An empty beach and a sea with nothing on it, which now Violet stares at, uses limited yet bold and vast elements—a dramatic perspective—to emphasize the imposing aloneness of their lives.

The unrelenting landscape helps dramatize the grisly news more than tears could, though tears still will come. Though a plethora of literary references are made in the series, largely decadent and Gothic, two world authors stand out—Tolstoy and Proust.

There is no evidence that they ever receive their earthly one. Now at closing they sail out from an island where they have lived for over a year, with a new orphan under their care—little Beatrice, daughter of another vanquished VFD member.

In the midst of so many narrative high jinks and so much lampooning of mordant literature, some wisdom manages to bob up. In the play of shadow and light that fills these thirteen books, each of thirteen unlucky chapters, there is this happy anomaly: the last book includes a fourteenth chapter, and a tantalizing suggestion that the unfortunate cycle may yet be broken.

The letters and notes are a mixed file some from Beatrice Baudelaire, the mother of the three orphans, some from Lemony, but most from little Beatrice, who is searching for the orphans, but also for Lemony. Even Sunny said that she could not have survived without me.

By their self-sacrifice and caring for a helpless one, their world must have been born anew. Beatrice wanders toward and narrows on Lemony several times, and can even hear him breathing on the other side of his office door.

How does A Series Of Unfortunate Events end? Spoilers for Netflix's Lemony Snicket series

How can a narrator with seemingly boundless sympathy of the most profound kind for the orphans—and himself an orphan—not reveal himself? Is the pain of facing someone young who has lost so much too painful? Does he fear that if he gets attached to his darling niece and takes her in he will only get hurt later when she is abducted by an Olaf replacement? After recording all this tragedy and villainy over thirteen books of misery, does he simply not want to be hurt by anyone or anything anymore?

Sunny is a baby, but sadly no one really understands her. She, too, has a special talent that the reader finds out later in the book. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are orphaned when their parents die in a mysterious fire.

They are sent to live with Count Olaf — a nearby relative the orphans claim their parents never mentioned. Alas, their predicament becomes even worse when they actually meet Olaf. His house is dilapidated, and he treats the children very poorly.


Eventually, the children figure out that he is really just after the fortune their parents left in a trust. The children need to use their special abilities to figure out his plan and stop him. Mood and tone are often difficult for students to understand.
