If the "Anna Livia Plurabelle" chapter was said to be "the greatest prose ever written by a man," one would hold that the last ten pages of FW are the most beautiful of the work. This kind of coda right after Anna Livia's final letter to her "Dear majesty" is at the same time the calm and serene conclusion(/beginning) of a process in endless evolution, and the vigorous invitation to restart everything again. In FW IV three parts can be clearly distinguished and two voices of groups of voices which take us to "Howth Castle and Environs."
