In the novel entitled To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee the author uses diction and sentence structure to create strong images that engage the reader One way Harper Lee creates imagery is through her diction For example on page 208 when Scout Jem and Atticus have just returned from the county jail after a dangerous and courageous night Scout says We had come in quietly so as not to wake Aunty Atticus killed the engine in the driveway and coasted to the car house we went in the back door and to our rooms without a word I was very tired and was drifting into sleep when the memory of Atticus calmly his newspaper and pushing back his hat became Atticus standing in the middle of an empty waiting street pushing up his glasses The full meaning of the nights events hit me and I began crying Jem was awfully nice about it for once he didnt remind me that people nary nine years old didnt do things like that This passage creates strong images that engage the reader because the passage is relatable When Scout says We had to come in quietly so as not to wake Aunty Atticus killed the engine in the driveway and coasted to the car house It is very easy to imagine children sneaking back in after they snuck out and is very relatable for teenager and adults Harper Lee also uses sentence structure to create wrong images in the readers mind for example on page 193 Scout is describing their very peaceful week with Aunty Atticus Jem and even Dill Scout says It began one evening after supper Dill was over Aunt Alexandra was in her chair in the corner Atticus was in his Jem and I were on the floor reading It had been a placid week I had minded Aunty Jem had outgrown the tree house but helped Dill and me construct a new rope
