What Is The Irony Of The Epilogue

Satisfactory Essays
In the epilogue, the narrator refers to himself as a character interacting with the citizens of Moscow: "The author of these truthful lines has himself heard in a train, during a journey to Feodosiya, a story of how two thousand persons had come out of a theater stark naked in the most literal sense of the word and gone home in taxis as they were." The use of third person is significant, as it implies that the narrator is only a character reporting events, rather than omniscient. There is also an obvious irony to the phrase "these truthful lines.”
