Chapter 6
To Kill A Mockingbird
Literary Devices
1. Personification- "at first I thought it was a tree, but there was no wind blowing and, tree-trunks never walk." (p: 71) This is a significant show of personification because it signifies the first moment that Scout sees Mr. Nathan and knows something is about to happen.
2. Dialogue- "Miss. Stephanie said "Jem Finch!" "Yes ma'am" asked Jem. Atticus spoke. "where're your pants, son?" "Pants sir?" "Pants."" (p: 72-73). This is a significant dialogue in the chapter because it is where Jem, Dill and Scout figure out that they might get caught for going into the Radley's yard.
3. Hyperbole- "You'll get your head shot off, Jem. please..." (p: 75) This is a significant hyperbole because it shows just how much Scout really cares about Jem.
1. Sadness. Sadness is shown in the chapter, because it was Dill’s last night in Maycomb.
2. Lying. Lying is shown when a circle of neighbours were standing near the Radley front gate. Jem and Dill lies to Atticus about what they were doing.
3. Fear. Fear is shown all over the chapter because, the three friends were all scared on Dill’s plan to sneak in on the Radley house.
4. Sneakiness. Sneakiness is shown, when all the three friends were sneaking quietly, looking through the window quickly, so that they can see Boo Radley.
The general setting in the text is Maycomb Alabama. In this specific chapter the different settings are mainly in and around the houses and town streets, specifically Miss. Rachel's fishpond, Jem and Scouts house and the Radley house- both in the front and the back.
Jem and Dill listen to Atticus until Dill’s final day in Maycomb. On the last day they ask to go to Miss. Rachels fishpond, when he and Jem plan to sneak over to the Radley Place and peek through the fence aswell as explore. Scout tags along with them as they creep around the house, glancing in through different entrances and windows. Suddenly, they see the shadow of a man also hearing a shotgun go off behind them! They escape under the fence by the schoolyard but Jem’s pants get caught on a fence, and he has to kick them off in order to get free. The children run home, where they encounter some of the neighborhood parents, including Atticus, Miss Maudie, and Miss Stephanie Crawford. Miss Maudie tells them that Nathan Radley shot at “a Negro” in his yard. Miss Stephanie also explains that Mr. Radley is waiting outside with his gun to shoot at the next sound he hears or thing he sees. Scared by the news Jem scurries to the Radley’s house later that night to retrieve his pants from the fence but this time with extra precaution.
literary Devices
4. Foreshadow- "It was then, I suppose, that Jem and I first began to part company." (p: 75) This is an important piece of foreshadowing because it shows a little glimpse of what is to come for Scout and Jems relationship in the text.
5. Suspense- "I waited until it was time to worry and listened for Mr. Radley's shotgun. Then i thought heard the back fence squeak." (p: 76) This is a important moment of suspense in the chapter because it is when Jem goes back for his pants at the Radley house knowing the danger that he would be in while Scout is at home waiting to Jem to get shot or come home soon.
1. What does Jem lose when he goes to the Radley Place?
