In a novel ripe with metaphor, the narrator concludes with an assertion about a fruit and its rind. Explain this final analogy, and
how might it resonate beyond Capitu‟s supposed betrayal?

It was suggesting that the Capitu he loved who would always remain his also contained the Capitu who would betray him.

The rind is what we see on the outside and the fruit (the reality) is inside, hiding behind. Is he saying that he fell in love with the outside appearance and the real woman betrayed him.
