Mood is the overall feeling of the text, and authors use imagery to help create mood. Imagery is language that appeals to the senses and paints a picture in the mind of the reader. Read the passage on pp. 91-93 in The Outsiders.

  • Identify the mood of the passage.
  • Explain how S.E. Hinton uses imagery to create this mood.
part a of the question is your claim because it is what you are claiming to be true
Part A of the question is your claim because it is what you are claiming to be true.

a. In this passage from The Outsiders, S.E. Hinton uses imagery to create a mood of danger and desperation.

Part B of your response will contain both data and claim. You should make specific references to the text to support your claim, and this will be evidence. As you explain how those references (evidence) support your claim (how they create mood), you will be writing commentary.

b. In this scene, Pony and Johnny save some kids from the burning church. Images such as “the roar and crackling was getting louder”, “drowning in smoke”, and “timber crashing and flames roaring” work to establish a feeling of intense risk. The imagery affects the reader in this way because it is connected to life or death situations. “The roar and crackling was getting louder” is a sound image that emphasizes the sense of danger and also helps build suspense. The reader realizes the fire is growing more out of control. “Timber crashing and flames roaring” is another sound image that intensifies the mood of danger in the scene because we know the church is close to collapsing. “Drowning in smoke” emphasizes the desperate nature of the situation and underscores the fact that the smoke is deadly.
