We all recognize that when something is repeated we should pay attention.
When you're reading and you notice a word, phrase, object, or situation mentioned over and over, you should stop and ask yourself, "Why does this keep showing up again and again?"
The answers will tell you about the theme and conflict, or they might foreshadow what will happen later.
