Transcript of Foreshadowing and Flashback

Foreshadowing and Flashback how we identify and
use them... foreshadowing -- when an author hints at something that will happen later Bambi Bambi's mother warns him of the dangers of the forest, and then when they go out into the forest, she is killed. Beauty and
the Beast in the Beauty and the Beast, when the Beast is hurt by the pack of wolves, Belle washes his wounds and takes care of him, foreshadowing their relationship that has not yet started to grow. The Phantom
