ABSTRACT
This article examines the use of allusion in French author Honoré de Balzac's "Illusions Perdues." The author references the recurring character of Lucien and the use of Biblical allusion to foreshadow his death. The technique of using allusion in literature to hint at plot direction, emphasize character traits, and connect to other stories, is also examined.
