In To Kill a Mockingbird, figurative language is utilized to convey Scout's vision of her experience. She is not narrating her story from the adult perspective, thus, use of metaphors, similes, and personification give us a glimpse of the girl..... how she thinks, her personality, and best of all, her humor.
