Transcript of The Drummer Boy of Shiloh <3

The Drummer Boy of Shiloh
Point of View
In the story "The Drummer Boy of Shiloh the point of view is in third-person point of view. In the story words like he, they, and them are used. The perspective we see in the story is Joby's because in the story the author talks about how Joby is feeling mainly.

Evidence: In the story "The Drummer Boy of Shiloh" I know that it is third-person point of view because in the story the narrator states words like he, they, and them. If it was first- person point of view the author would use words like I, am, and me.
Figurative Language
Simile: "He smelled as fathers should smell, of salt sweat ginger tobacco horse and boot leather and the earth he walked upon." The phrase from "The drummer Boy of Shiloh" is a simile. I know this because Joby is comparing The General to all father's even though all father's are different.
Figurative Language
Personification: "He turned his drum on its side, where its great lunar face peered at him whenever he opened his eyes.
The phrase given from "The Drummer Boy of Shiloh" is personification. I believe it's personification because the narrator made the drum seem like a human, giving human like abilities.
The conflict in the story is an internal conflict. I believe it is internal because it is not a conflict with another character in the story but a conflict with his own fear. The conflict in the story is that Joby is scared of dying in the war because he is just a drummer boy and is not allowed to carry a weapon just a drum. In the story the narrator states that Joby was crying because he wished he had a gun instead of a drum. The conflict is resolved once The General gives Joby advice and Joby realizes how important his part in the army is.
Figurative Language
Idiom: "Do you shave yet boy? Even more a fool. There's your cheek fell right off that tree overhead." (Do you shave yet? Of course not. Your cheek is as furry as the fruit that fell off that tree over there. The statement is an idiom because its words say something different but it has a different meaning.
