In the story "A Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner, the use of foreshadowing is used truly conspicuously. To foreshadow is to provide advanced indications to a future event or discovery.. The extremely strong dank scent about Ms. Emily's house, the second floor of this residence being locked and the discovery of the iron grey hair, all are strong foreshadowing incidents that achieve this surprising and strong but also believable ending.

foreshadowing brings about a cunning and serious yet a truthful ending. The use of foreshadowing can have a strong impact on story's and novel's it can change predictions, alter thoughts on characters and could leave an impression on the reader. In today's 'normal' society this discovery in the story would mostly be seen as a weariness, but to the 'macabre' society this story may have been interpreted differently and would possibly appear normal to them.
