Transcript of Foreshadowing of "A Separate Peace"

Devon School The exact definition of
foreshadowing is, "to
show, indicate, or suggest
in advance" Here's some examples: "There were several trees bleakly reaching into the fog. Anyone of them might have been the one I was looking for. Unbelievable that there were other trees which looked like it here. It had loomed in my memory as a huge lone spike dominating the riverbank, forbidding as an artillery piece, high as the beanstalk."
pg. 13, paragraph 4 This is foreshadowing that the tree has great significance. Gene is imagining the tree as a weapon, as something that hurts somebody, who is later Finny. "In through swinging doors I reached a marble foyer, and stopped at the foot of a long white marble flight of stairs. Although they were old stairs, the worn moons in the middle of each step were not very deep. The marble must be unusually hard. That seemed very likely, only too likely, although with all my thought about these stairs this exceptional hardness had not occurred to me. It was surprising that had I overlooked that, that crucial fact."
pg. 11, paragraph 4 This quote foreshadows when Finny fell the second time, down the marble stairs. As an older man, Gene notices how hard those stairs are and how easily it was for Finny to break his leg. "So the more things remain the same, the more they change after all-- plus c'est la meme chose, plus ca change. Nothing endures, not a tree, not love, not even a death by violence."
pg. 14, paragraph 2 This quote foreshadows the two accidents of Finny, the first one being when Finny fell from the tree, and the other second was when Finny fell down the stairs. Gene even foreshadows Finny's "death by violence". These are just a few of the many examples of foreshadowing in the book, "A Separate Peace". The End The Foreshadowing of "A Separate Peace" By: Gabbi M.
& April V. The definition of
foreshadowing is, "to
show, indicate, or suggest in advance". Here are some examples of foreshadowing
in "A Separate Peace": "Looking back now across fifteen years, I could see with great clarity the fear I had lived in, which must mean that in the interval I had succeeded a very important undertaking: I must have made my escape from it."
pg. 10, paragraph 3 This quote foreshadows the fear that Gene lived in through the majority of the story, the fear of getting caught. This quote sets the scene for the story.
