There is a light that Atticus's reading lamp in the darkness of the night. There is the expectation of violence in the air. When the mob of men come, Lee uses language that arouses tension an fear,

there was a murmur among the group of men, made more ominous when Atticus moved back to the bottom front step and the men drew nearer to him.
