Question: English & Literature

Why does Alan become depressed at the end of the novel? What gives him the inspiration he needs to survive?

The library of Umberto Eco was presented as an example of how we should be thinking. We should be looking at the books that we have not yet read rather than those we have. The idea was to concentrate more on what we do not know.

Alan becomes depressed at the end of the novel because he is lonely, he misses his wife, and the landscape of Wyoming is desolate, adding to his sense of despair. However, when Alan arrives in South Dakota and sees the awesome carvings of the Crazy Horse Monument, it gives him hope in the idea that even impossible dreams are not pointless.
