And of course the novel is better than the movie...

Read the following excerpt from The Giver by Lois Lowry

I was pleased, though, when you were selected. It took them a long time. The failure of the previous selection was ten years ago, and my energy is starting to diminish. I need what strength I have remaining for your training. 

In this quote from the novel, what literary terms are being demonstrated?

A. Foreshadowing
B. Allusion
C. Hyperbole
D. Flashback

Scroll down for the answer.


A and D are the correct answers.

Thanks to Caroline and Lindsey in Mrs. Brooks' English 2 Honors class at John A. Holmes High School in Edenton, North Carolina for being such givers of this question.  Gosh, that pun was bad even for me.  You deserve better.  

I am chagrined.
