Throughout the chapter, Scout portrays Arther or ‘Boo’ Radely to be a ghost. She does this by using subtle hints at the stereotypical view of a ghost. An example of this is present here in the first sentence of the chapter. In this sentence she describes how the light reflects off Boo’s pasty white skin and creates a luminescent glow about him.
