What is foreshadowing?
giving readerss a clue of what happens before it acually does
There are mainly two types of foreshadowing: modern foreshadowing and classical foreshadowing. Modern foreshadowing is more symbolic, not explicitly saying what event will occur later, whereas Classical foreshadowing is more literal. For example, in Romeo and Juliet, the introduction clearly states two people love each other so much, they will take their lives if it means being together, actually happening at the end of the story.
