From the bridge to

From the bridge to terabeithia the foreshadow is probably when the scene slows down when Jess says goodbye to Leslie almost to the ending. It foreshadows Jess is not going to be able to see Leslie again. Sad...

Not foreshadowing

It is not foreshadowing because it is a direct reference that Jess will not see Leslie because if you say goodbye then you are leaving someone, therefore it is obvious that she will never see him again.
BTW, never seen it

foreshadowing

'I thought everything would work out...I was wrong' is an example of foreshadowing

Story of an Hour

An example of foreshadowing can be found in this short story by Kate Chopin. In the introductory sentence, the author states that Mrs. Mallard, the main character in the story, was "afflicted with a heart trouble" and "great care was taken to break to her as gently as possible the news of her husband's death. In the end, (spoiler alert) her husband walks through the door, unharmed, and she is so shocked that she has a heart attack and dies. Therefore, the statement that she had heart trouble was a subtle hint of what was to come in the end. I hope that helps anyone who needs an example.

Coincidentally...

I'm looking up a few more devices for a compare/contrast of strategies between two lit. pieces, one of them being Story of an Hour! :) Already had this one, just decided to look at it anyways... :)

foreshadowing

Is this foreshadowing? Please help me.
"All around us are people, of all classes, of all nationalities, of all ages."

It depends.

If later in what you are writing has something that happens that has a lot to do about the diversity of people, then yes, you could consider it as a foreshadow.

If not, then it is just an average description of the people in the room that your characters are in.

I hope that helps.

Not exactly...

It's telling us about how mixed the world is today, not tomorrow. You can anticipate being surrounded by a diverse collection of people, but anticipation is not foreshadowing; it's just believing.
But you had better believe it's happening ;)

No

It has to imply something is about to happen.

is this foreshadowing TELL me

is this foreshadowing TELL me now, what should a man want
But to sit alone sipping his cup of wine?
I should like to have visitors come to discuss philosophy
And not to have tax-collectors coming to collect taxes;
My three sons married into good families,
My five daughters provided with steady husbands;
Then I could jog through a happy five-score years,
Craving no Cloud-ascent, no Resurrection?

So basically it's a hint or

So basically it's a hint or clue as to the final outcome of the story right?

Yes, but not only

Yes, foreshadowing can hint or give a clue to the final outcome, but it doesn't have to be only the final outcome that foreshadowing suggests. Foreshadowing can also imply events that will happen along the way to the final outcome.

Is this foreshadowing?

We note that Dr. Manette's "face had become frozen . . . in a very curious look at Darnay: an intent look, deepening into a frown of dislike and distrust, not even unmixed with fear”.

No

No, it is not foreshadowing - what is it suggesting is about to happen? This statement simply states how Dr. Manette is currently feeling and how he is looking at Darnay...what hint or suggestion does that offer of future action?
