Jem’s ‘face was streaked with angry tears as [he] made [his] way through the cheerful crowd’ shows he clearly has been deeply affected by this case. Atticus, ‘looking as though nothing had happened’, agrees with Jem and assures him that ‘it’s not time to worry yet,’. Atticus’s cool, calm and collected attitude in this passage is very different to the one we see in court. Where he takes his coat off, unbuttons his shirt and loosens his tie, a very out of character thing, it shows Atticus’s professionalism when he returns to ‘his impassive self again’. This passage mainly emphasises the idea of appreciation and also ties in with the social equality gap the Atticus is trying to mend.
Then you can hear Nora in the second line becoming submissive and admitting to the letters issue and also a struggle, “Let me go! Let me get out”, against what must be Helmers firm grasp. He continues to forcefully retain his wife in the following line, demanding, “where are you going?” The struggle is still present in the fourth line, where Nora unexpectedly and assertively exclaims, “you shan’t save me, Torvald!” making us feel her anger at Helmers reaction to the letter. In the middle of the text Nora pronounces her love of Helmer, “I have loved you above everything else in the world”, whether true or not and tries to make him release her. Helmer then harshly accuses her of “silly excuses” and refuses to be convinced by her pleading words.
Compare the fear and suffering depicted in ‘Out Of The Blue’ and ‘Bayonet Charger’ Out of the Blue, the poem is narrated by a fictional English man caught in the World Trade Center after the terrorist attack on September 11th. The victim describes being in one of the buildings and dictates various emotions, they have observations they make in one of the ‘burning buildings’. All the techniques used in the poem emphasis how helpless the victims of the attack would feel. The recurring theme of death intrigues the reader more and the helpless victim has only one chance to ‘escape’ the situation… death. This also emphasis the strong essence of fear in the poem as it strikes fear upon the reader knowing that this could have happened to them!
We love them better then their own mother could every do. And I wanna yell, so loud to all them chillun in Maycomb, that I have single handedly raised like they were my own.

That moment when those chillun start to believe that us coloured folk aren’t as good as whites.
“Whydah is being attacked by pirate ships!” yelled the town crier, as the drums beat loudly. Horrified with the loud shooting and war raid, Dada Deo ran through the fields of Whydah looking for refuge. “Olorun igbala (“God our savior”)!” he prayed. The people ran to their homes hoping this was just a nightmare. A savage crew of fifty or more white men invaded the streets of Whydah firing their rifles and yelling, “Take the chains and shackles and capture as many as you can!” Dada Deo, horror-strucked by the confusion and uproar, knew this was not a nightmare.
In the beginning of the novel, Scout has an uncontrollable desire to use her fists to solve all her problems. She got "some pleasure" when she was "rubbing [Walter Cunningham’s] nose in the dirt", simply over a small issue such as, making "[Her] start of on the wrong foot" in the classroom. Lee highlights these reoccurring fights to support Scout's childlike actions. Scout has a turning point midway through the novel when Atticus explains to Scout, not to "let 'em get your goat" and to keep "your head high" and "fists down". Lee uses this scene to show the turning point in which Scout starts to see that using her fists is not the only way to dispel the negative words being thrown towards her.
Let him get a little older and he won’t get sick and cry. Maybe things’ll strike him as being-not quite right, say, but he won’t cry, nit when he gets a few years on him.” Dill: “Cry about what, Mr. Raymond?” Mr. Raymond:”Cry about the simple hell people give other people-without even thinnking. Cry about the hell white people give colored folks, without even stopping to think that they’re

After the trial, even after tom was found guilty. They all stayed seated and rose up as Atticus left. They were showing him respect. The Lynch Mob was another example of racism in this novel. This was a mob of a group of men from the town that set out to break in to the jail and kill Tom.
She tells me I look beautiful, and gives me a re-assuring hug. As she gets ready, I sit down and fiddle with my fingers, thinking about all the worst things that could happen. I know I shouldn’t think that way, but I can’t help it – if I’m chosen, it’s a ticket to death. We walk towards the ceremony, I hold Katniss’ hand tighter than ever, I can’t possibly describe the sickening fear in my stomach. Everybody files in silently and sign in, walk into our age group lines, and wait patiently for my first ever reaping.
