Transcript of Things fall apart-

In chapter 8, you see foreshadowing when Okonkwo is sitting with Obierika while Obierika bargains his daughter bride-price with the family of her future husband. They mostly talked about the different customs from village to village. Obierika says "It is like the story of white men who, they say, are white like this piece of chalk".(Achebe 64) They than laughed and compared the white men with the leper Amadi. The arrival of the white men with bring break up their culture much like a leprosy.

Foreshadowing in the novel
An example of foreshadowing in the novel Things fall apart would be " The ill-fated lad was called Ikemefuna"(Achebe 6). This quote suggests that in the future bad things will happen to Ikemefuna or that he is destined to fail. This foreshadowing was proven later in the novel when he was taken away from his new family in Umuofia to be executed.

Foreshadowing in the novel
Chinua Achebe foreshadows the arrival of the colonists using the arrival of the locusts. In the text it says "They settled on every tree and on every blade of grass; they settled on roofs and on the bare ground. Mighty tree branches broke away under them, and the whole country became the brown-earth color of the vast, hungry swarm" (Achebe 49). When the colonizers come to the village they too make settlement and break the strong branches of friendship between the clans.
Definition: A warning or indication of a future event.
