The beginning

I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's near the beginning, after he witnesses Lupito's death/murder. This is a pretty late notice though, huh..? Haha, sorry.

Another Example

This is another example of an allusion, found in Fahrenheit 451:
"Well," said Beatty, "now you did it. Old Montag wanted to fly near the sun and now that he burnt his damn wings, he wonders why..."
This is an allusion to the old Greek myth in which the inventor Daedalus makes wings for himself and his son, Icarus, to escape a tower in which they are held hostage. Even after his father's warnings, Icarus flies too high and the sun melts the wax in the wings. Icarus falls into the ocean and drowns.

Allusion

"Even sports newsletters allude to [Robert] Frost. When a New York Giants tackle was diagnosed as having cancer, Inside Football commented, 'The rest, since there was no more to build on there, turned to their affairs.' That's an allusion to a 1916 Frost poem about a boy's accidental death: 'No more to build on there. And they, since they/ Were not the one dead, turned to their affairs.' (The poem's title is 'Out, Out--,' itself an allusion by Frost to Shakespeare; after Lady Macbeth dies, Macbeth speaks of life's shortness, 'Out, out, brief candle!')"

Chris Brown

Chris Brown being referred as the next Michael is a great example of an allusion device, where 'Michael Jackson' is the subject of the allusion device.
