Summary

The Chorus ends the play with a brief monologue delivered in Constance's office. He explains that the ancient hieroglyphs of the Gustav Manuscript have entered into Constance's unconscious mind and created a dreamy thought of drama around the pre-existing knowledge garnered through her long studies of literature. Constance's subconscious mind has thus spun gray matter into gold.

Analysis

The Chorus fittingly concludes the play with a statement of authorial fact—Constance is the author of the action through her subconscious imaginings. The Gustav manuscript remains, as mysterious as before, but Constance emerges wiser and with a forward-looking attitude.
