To Kill A Mockingbird, Foreshadowing a Sin
Transcript of To Kill A Mockingbird, Foreshadowing a Sin
In Chapter 1
In Chapter 3, the author gives an example of foreshadowing that has to do with
behavior and how the
family in general comes across.
"And Burris," said Miss Caroline, "please bathe yourself before you come back tomorrow."
The boy laughed rudely. "You ain't sending me home missus. I was on the verge of leavin'- I done done my time for this year." (Pg 35)
In this example, it foreshadows how the Ewells do absolutely nothing for themselves. Scout tells Atticus a remark about Burris not having to go to school.
"I don't see why I have to when he doesn't." (Pg 40)
This shows how they do nothing for their lives. They don't even send their own children to school.
In this example it shows that Mr. Ewell had a plan and that since Tom Robinson is dead then 2 other people are next.
"... Mr. Ewell said it made one down and about two more to go." (pg. 241)
This comes into play when he attacks Jem and Scout later and that he was trying to kill them and they were the two more to go.
On the first page of the book Scout, our narrorator, already gives us, the readers, clues about who might be important people in the book.
"When enough years had gone by to enable us to look back on them, we sometimes discussed the events leading to his accident. I maintain that the
started it all, but Jem, who was four years my senior, said it started long before that. He said
it began the summer DIll came to us, when Dill first gave us the idea of making Boo Radley come out."
(pg. 1, Harper Perennial Modern Classics).
The fulfillment of these pieces of foreshadowing can be found on pages 140, 301, 305, and 317
Haper Lee gives another example of foreshadowing in chapter one when she gives the reader a clue about more mischievous things the kids do to make Boo Radley come out.
"But by the end of August our repertoire was vapid from countless reproductions, and it was then that Dill gave us the idea of making Boo Radley come out" (pg.9).
The first attempt the children make to fulfill this is on page 15; the next is on page 52, lastly they actually manage to do this on page 302.
In this example, it shows that something important is going to happen because Jem is wanting to go downtown in the middle of the night to see what Atticus. He is concerned because Atticus usually doesn't do these type of things.
"I'm goin' downtown for a while." He was changing his pants. "Why? It's almost ten o' clock, Jem."" (pg.149)
This shows that Jem was concerned with what Atticus was going downtown to do and so was Scout because they knew something was wrong and this showed something was going to happen.
A literary device that is an advance sign or
warning of what is to come in the future
