Examples of Juxtaposition
Paragraph 60 is especially rich in
juxtaposition. What textual examples

In a group of 4 (ish)
Work together to complete the Graphic
Organizer: fill it in with one significant
example of diction and/or imagery that
clearly shows voice for each identified
section (just put the paragraph number
and the first few words of the quote).
Be ready to justify why it is significant

write a paragraph analyzing the voice of the
narrator and analyzing the use of vivid imagery and
diction to convey this significant incident.
