Foreshadow

  1. Foreshadowing is a literary device in which a writer gives an advance hint of what is to come later in the story. Foreshadowing often appears at the beginning of a story or a chapter and helps the reader develop expectations about the coming events in a story. There are various ways of creating a foreshadowing. A writer may use dialogues of characters to hint at what may occur in future. In addition, any event or action in the story may throw a hint to the readers about future events or action. Even the title of a book or chapter can act as a clue that suggests what is going to happen. (Literarydevices.net)
  2. “Life were better ended by their hate,

Than death prorogued, wanting of thy love” - From Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet Act 2, Scene 2

Juliet is concerned about Romeo’s safety as she fears her kinsmen may catch him. Romeo says, in the above lines, that he would rather have her love and die sooner than not obtain her love and die later. Eventually, he gets her love and dies for her love, too. (literarydevices.net)
