Literary devices for chapter 22.

Hi there. I am required to list literary devices for chapter 22. So far, I only have foreshadowing. I am really weak at this; I can't seem to be able to find any metaphors, symbolism, personification or allusion. Please help.

Literary devices found in Chapter 22 of Harper Lee's novel To Kill a Mockingbird include the following:

PERSONIFICATION--"Miss Stephanie's nose quivered with curiosity;" "Miss Maudie's diction was deadly;" "There's danger a'-comin';" "Jem's eyes flashed at her."

ALLUSION--Atticus remarks that the inhabitants of the White House don't have chicken for breakfast.

SYMBOLISM--Dill declares that he wants to be a clown when he grows up, but the clown actually symbolizes a continuance of youth and of delaying the onset of adulthood. Also, the two little cakes baked by Miss Maudie represent rewards for Jem and Scout.

SIMILE--"It's just as much Maycomb County as missionary teas."

METAPHOR--"Too many snakes in the closet."
