All mentioned proves my point that Elizabeth Taylor’s cleverly written short story includes foreshadowing. She provides hints in a plot of “The fly-paper” in order to give some clues to what will happen in the story. To give an illustration of what I mean, I’ve explained some cases of foreshadowing above. Taylor is using this technique in many different ways: giving clues in surrounding, mirroring an identity of the protagonist in another object or subject, and little details which not many readers will notice from the first glance. Therefore, foreshadowing itself plays a crucial role in this short story.
