Transcript of Foreshadowing
What is foreshadowing?
Foreshadowing is a literary device often used by writers. It is a warning or indication of what is to occur later in an event; resulting in either good or bad.
This is the end of my presentation, thank you for listening !
Examples of Foreshadowing
As Simba asks Mufasa if they would be together forever; rather than giving Simba a yes or no answer, he mentions a phrase his father once had told him.
"...Look at the stars. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars. So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I." said Mufasa.
From the phrase "... just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I." Mufasa foretold his own fate, that one day he would die as well and live amongst the stars with the great kings.
Moments after Simba's arrival to Pride Land, the sky darkened as a storm began to stir; this alerts the audience that something bad is nearing.
The storm is a physical act of foreshadowing that helps create an ominous feeling for the audience.
Hints given by the writer can either decieve the reader's mind or it can help the reader anticpate what is to happen next; giving the reader a taste of suspense.
