Trisian and Isolde Literary Devices
by: Jacob Everhart
Definition - Foreshadowing
We know the prize is Isolde and this foreshadows that something will occur between Isolde and Tristan.
Definition - Flashback
Tristan goes and sits under a tree and thinks about the things he had and the things that he had lost.
He tries to convince him by telling Mark about the things he lost in the past and how he could retain them.
Isolde has the flashback to the time where she first found Tristan in Ireland on the beach, and that was where she saved him.
By this happening, people will be able to tell that something terribly bad will happen between them like a war.
