In literature, the resolution is the ending: Part of the story where the main conflict has been resolved and the story is coming to a close.

The Five Elements of Plot In literature, many theorists agree that you can divide a narrative plot into five stages:
  1. Exposition - This is the beginning of the story, where the character and settings are established.
  2. Rising Action - This usually where the problem or conflict is introduced. Something happens to disrupt the state of equilibrium that was established in the expository stage. 
  3. Climax - Here, everything is brought to a head; the main conflict occurs.
  4. Falling Action - The main conflict is over, and the story begins to slow down, coming to a close. Imagine this as the aftermath of a fight; cleaning wounds, fixing broken bones, making sure everybody is okay.
  5. Resolution - A new order is established; this might be a return to the state shown in the expository phase, or it might be a new one. For good or for bad, this is the ending.

The resolution is the part of a story's plot line in which the problem of the story is resolved or worked out. This occurs after the action and is typically where the story ends. Another term for the resolution is "denouement," which comes from the French term "denoue," meaning "to untie."

Usually, any questions that arose during the story are answered in the resolution.  All stories have a resolution, even if the author doesn't disclose every lastdetail to the reader. order book report
