Consider the following paragraph from the novel 'To Kill a Mockingbird': 'The Radley Place was inhabited by an unknown entity the mere description of whom was enough to make us behave for days on end; Mrs. Radley seldom if ever crossed the street for a mid-morning coffee break with her neighbors, and certainly never joined a missionary circle. Mr. Nathan Radley, his brother, came to the same window every morning, a long shotgun in his hand, and stood watch over his domain.' Reflect on the author's choice of words here, particularly 'unknown entity' and 'stood watch over his domain'. How does the author's word choice, with similar denotations, contribute to the readers' understanding of the Radley's household and the character of Mr. Nathan Radley?

Consider the excerpt from Robert Frost's poem 'The Road Not Taken': 'Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;'. The poet uses the metaphor of roads to describe choices in life. If we substitute the word 'roads' with other words of similar denotation such as 'paths', 'tracks', or 'routes', how might it alter the depth and impact of the metaphor used by Frost? Analyze the nuances of meaning in each of these words and how these nuances could change the interpretation of the poem.

In the following passage from Harper Lee's novel 'To Kill a Mockingbird', Scout, the narrator, is describing her hometown: 'Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first knew it. In rainy weather, the streets turned to red slop; grass grew on the sidewalks, the courthouse sagged in the square. Somehow, it was hotter then. ... Ladies bathed before noon, after their three-o'clock naps, and by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frostings of sweat and sweet talcum.' Given this context, what does the description of the ladies as 'soft teacakes with frostings of sweat and sweet talcum' suggest about the living conditions in Maycomb?
