  9. 9. CHAPTER 12 – SYMBOLISM / IMAGERY The terms "black" and "white" (when referring to people in the novel) are symbols because they are used to separate two groups of people and violate the lesser of the two groups' rights. When a black man says something and a white man says something, the words "black" or "white" determine the superiority of the person. Author, Harper Lee focuses on the black community in Chapter 12, giving the children (Scout and Jem) a deeper understanding of how African Americans live in their town. "An oppressive odor met us when we crossed the threshold, an odor I had met many times in rain-rotted gray houses where there are coil-oil lamps, water dippers, and unbleached domestic sheets" The above is a great example of the imagery of the First Purchase African M.E. Church that appears in chapter twelve. The church looks to be beyond repair, damp and filled with mildew.

What explanation does Cal give for talking “n*****-talk”? 9. Who is sitting on the Finches front porch? 10. Why are the children reluctant to have this person live with them?
  11. 11. CHAPTER 12 VOCABULARY 1) inconsistent - displaying a lack of consistency 2) indignant - angered at something unjust 3) altercation- noisy quarrel 4) diligent - quietly and steadily persevering especially in detail or exactness 5) frivolous - not serious in content, attitude or behavior
  12. 12. CHAPTER 12 LITERARY TERMS 1) In chapter 12, Scout is having trouble coping with Jem’s treatment of her. Scout says: “The Governor was eager to scrape a few barnacles off the ship of state; there were sit-down strikes in Birmingham..” "Scraping the barnacles off the ship of state" is a metaphor that means the governor was trying to clean things up. 2) Calpurnia is getting the children ready for church. Scout says: “She had put so much starch in my dress it came up like a tent when I sat down.” This is a simile. The author is comparing the starched dress to a stiff "tent." 3) TKAM (p. 134) His curtness stung me… is an example of hyperbole – an exaggeration or overstatement.
