In the novel it is explained by Atticus that killing a mockingbird is a sin because they do not do anything to harm to us like nesting in corncribs, or eating up the gardens, they only sing for us. Multiple characters are symbolized as mockingbirds because it would be a sin to kill them as they only try and want to be a kind, civil person. Boo Radley is a misunderstood, and kind-hearted man who is represented as a mockingbird in the novel. Boo, due to the county's curiosity and fast pace spreading of rumours, is often perceived as monster “Inside the house lived a malevolent phantom” (Lee 8).
Jem refuses Atticus’s pleas to bring Scout and Dill home, but Scout disassembles the mob by singling Mr. Cunningham out and speaking to him about Walter and his entailment.

My first question is why does Jem stand up to Atticus? I believe that there are multiple reasons for this.

Johnston stated the book, Of Plymouth Plantation, explained how much hardship the colony have faced, and how they are still determined to sail and settle in America.

In order to be initiated to be a Merlin he has to stand by cully, but cully, Arthur’s bird, will realize it’s Arthur and start freaking out. When Arthur tells the rest of the Merlins he cannot and they ask why the narrator states, “The poor [Arthur] realised that now he must choose between confessing himself a human, and learning no more of their secrets, or going through with this ordeal to earn his education. He did not want to be a coward.” (White, 82) Arthur learns how to control his words because right before that quote he says he cannot do the initiation because he warned him, he being Merlyn and him being Arthur. Arthur learns body capability as an owl. Archimedes, an owl who Merlyn knows, is teaching Arthur the ways of being an owl.
The use of diction in the word “widening” represents the expansion of the war, and the increased impact it created on citizens. A metaphor is used to describe the falcon and falconer to soldiers and their leaders: “The falcon cannot hear the falconer” (2). Dependable predators like falcons become aimless when they lose connection with their falconer; the same way soldiers are worthless
Ezra Pound and his influence on modernism Ezra Weston Loomis Pound was an emigrant American poet and critic who was a key figure of the early modernist movement. Pound promoted, and also sporadically helped to shape, the work of different poets and novelists such as William Butler Yeats, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, D.H. Lawrence, Robert Frost, and T.S. Eliot. His influence on poetry began with his development of “Imagism”, a movement stressing clarity, carefulness and conciseness of language. Modernism is a movement that arose from wide-scale and far-reaching transformations in Western society in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Within the novel “Chronicle of a Death Foretold” it’s shown that the author uses symbolism through the setting of the book to make the novel more interesting and have a more significant or deeper meaning behind it.

Trethewey immediately uses imagery to set the scene inviting your senses to help illustrate the image she has already relayed. This helped depict a more in-depth image of her poem “elegy”. After reading this poem several times, to build understanding, and break down literary elements; I came to the conclusion that Trethewey emphasizes the struggle to find balance. The balance between metaphor and symbolism, increasing throughout the entire poem showing battle between connotation and detonation. The struggle in which she used to connotation to portray the bigger picture, but also balanced out by denotation to show the subliminal messages of the relationship shared between the narrator’s father and herself.
The poem, “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost states that in life we come upon many decisions, and there are points where we have to let fate take the lead. “The Road Not Taken” uses two paths as a symbol of a life decision. To understand this poem you have to have understanding of life’s meaning. The author helps us better understand the message by his use of tone and literary devices such as metaphors and symbolism. In this poem we come to realize that life is a combination of decisions and fate.
The aforementioned statement about the passing of time is also echoed and shown in the use of two tenses throughout the poem- past and present. Curnow brings attention to this to show the subconscious need to know the
My artifact was a textual analysis essay on Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Throughout this artifact process I learned how to analyze long text for evidence, how to structure a textual analysis, and how to compose an outline for an essay. My essay’s main argument was that Ray Bradbury showed both conformity and individualism throughout Fahrenheit 451. I was assigned this artifact to track my college readiness in the area of writing and to assess my take away from the book. To analyze means to understand on a level deeper than the surface I picked the individuality vs conformity prompt because I felt like it was the most prevalent one throughout the book and it was really interesting to me.
