D Block English I-H: Class-work for Monday, 3-9

Locate your To Kill a Mockingbird notes and book. Today, I am asking you to focus on the distinctions that exist within the range of a particular device. In other words, how can we subdivide Lee's use of a given device? Shakespeare, for example, conjured celestial, aviary, and fatalistic imagery in order to achieve varying effects on his audience. 


1. Select 3 prominent devices employed by Lee.

2. Using quote integration techniques with textual excerpts, pinpoint the distinctions within device types in paragraph form. You should compose 3 paragraphs in all, with each paragraph dissecting at least 3 variations (3 modifiers) of the given term. Consider what derivation is used, how it is used, and why it is used. 

3. Students who finish early may pair up for DF preparation, if applicable. You may also finish your Word Wealth work if necessary. 

I have jury duty today- if you have any questions or get stuck, you can email me- I may or may not be able to use my phone to respond.

In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee amplifies the literary devices such as rich imagery, dynamic characterization, and distinct diction to demonstrate the division between devices to drive the plot.
Initially, Lee exhibits the device of imagery.

Throughout the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee utilizes detailed imagery, dynamic characterization, and distinct diction to contribute to the common theme of Lee’s writing style.
The imagery techniques captured by Lee create a vivid picture in the readers head. Initially, Lee created the southern small rural town of Maycomb.

Maintaining strong literary devices throughout the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee utilizes dynamic characterization of Boo Radley, local diction of the characters, and complex symbolism to illustrate how the distinctions between literary devices and their uses.
Primarily, Harper Lee’s character Boo Radley, has been portrayed as a mysterious antagonist throughout the novel until chapter seven when he is revealed as a misunderstood character. Atticus states: “Boo Radley. You were so busy looking at the fire you didn’t know it when he put the blanket around you.”(page 96)

In Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, characterization is often used throughout Chapters 1 - 9 to clearly depict the members of Maycomb. For example the mysterious Boo Radley’s characterization is based upon rumours and anecdotes told by the various townsfolk. His “backstory” makes the disputed antagonist of the story, a dark persona. “According to neighborhood legend…[Mr. Radley’s] boy was in the wrong crowd”
