Foreshadowing & Flashback by Kunal, Karan, Aman, Satwant &Viren What is Foreshadowing? Foreshadowing is hinting at events to come in the story. It can be used to increase tension and suspense but used poorly it does the opposite. It usually prepares the reader for a shocking discovery that is about to happen. Flashbacks Foreshadowing Examples An interruption of a work's sequence to describe or present an incident that occurred before the main time of a work's action. This is a writer's technique in which the author interrupts the plot of the story to recreate an incident of an earlier time. The character go back in time like giving the them a memory. This device is often used to provide additional information to the reader. This is in the Hunger Games. In earlier part of the book, it explains about how Katniss and Peeta met and how she's known him (but never talked to him) until the time he gives her the bread needed when she is starving. This shows foreshadowing because it develops hints that Peeta likes Katniss and later on in the book, this turns out to be true. Examples of Flashback A example of a flashback in the Hunger Games could be when Katniss and Peeta are in the Hunger Games in a cave and Peeta tells Katniss about the first day of school when Peeta was in love with Katniss and what happened all day.Full transcript
