Life everlasting or "point d'exclamation final"?

Good question. Of course if playing with your Pale Fire is what you
enjoy, you can certainly do it endlessly. As someone once wrote, "for
those who like to do that sort of thing, that is the sort of thing
they like." But since I came to the conclusion that PF is a riddle,
a puzzle and a chess-like problem, I found it, personally, terribly
frustrating not to know the solution.
I am not much looking forward to an after-life either, but I am hoping
against hope to go out in one final blaze of glory.
