At the end of "The Shawshank Redemption", why was King leaving the story un-ended, and leaving us with the last few lines thought by Red?


The statement made about hope is demonstrated in the fact that Red boards to bus, en route to Zihuatenejo.  From a perspective of being an "institutional man," chained to routine and unable to see the intrinsic value of freedom and hope, Red has undergone significant change.  This change is an ending on its own merits, as Red has understood the ideas that Andy had been discussing for some time.  Andy might have understood it earlier, but in the final analysis, Red did understand that hope is needed for existence.  He also understood that even an "institutional man" like himself can change, can grow, and can inject a new level of freedom and adventure in his own life.
