Musical "forms" are the structure (or frame) of which a piece is made of as a composition is divided into sections. There's 8 of what's known as "Single Forms". You'd probably recognize "Sonata" as being the most common. . Sectional Form . Strophic Form . Binary Form . Ternary Form . Rondo …Form . Variational Form . Developmental Form . Sonata Form For example, a "Sonata" is made up of 3 (sometimes 4) movements, and the first of which (Allegro) would start with an "Exposition" section, then a "Development" section, then ending with a "Recapitulation" which will in a sense echo the musical ideas and themes used in the Exposition to help conclude the movement. The themes and tunes in the Development will differ significantly to the Exposition so it's quite easy to tell where the different sections are when you're sat down listening and following with a score. . I'd recommend researching the particular forms you need information on (especially regarding the sections) as each form can be very complex.. Hope this has been of some help!. James Fletcher.

Scout is arguably the main character in TKAM as well as the narrator, however when narrating she is looking back on the events as a adult. Thus the events are recounted first-hand, from a child's point of view…, whilst also being described in retrospect - the story/plot evolves from a child's POV, with the hindsight of maturity. It's always useful to consider the effect this has on the reader :) ( Full Answer )

Now she can start a new life and move on. ( Full Answer )
