Aesthetics: Narrative Delayed revelation


Any time in a narrative where something happens, but the exact nature of the event is not revealed till some time later. Faulkner uses this technique quite often. The example here is from Monk, where Monk had apparently been living in a house for several months, but the town does not find out about it until months later.
