FlashbackAs in film, a flashback in literature is a technique which takes the narrative back in time from the point the story has reached, to recount events that happened before. It was used extensively by author Ford Madox Ford.
A flashback can also occur in the mind, either voluntarily remembering a past experience, or involuntarily due to a disorder such as PTSD, or a hallucinogen such as LSD. Flashbacks are often reported years after a subject was exposed to the drug or trauma.
