5 Let’s Review Point of view can also mean a character’s perspective or particular attitude. I’m positive I’ll pass the test, since I practiced so much. I don’t care if I pass it.

6 Core Lesson Reread and notice the dialogue between two characters. 1 2 Ask, “What does the dialogue show about the characters’ thoughts and feelings?” 3 Analyze this dialogue by asking, “How does this affect the characters’ points of views?”

7 "Don't kill me," said Chuchundra, almost weeping. "Rikki-tikki, don't kill me." "Do you think a snake-killer kills muskrats?” said Rikki-tikki scornfully. "Those who kill snakes get killed by snakes,”said Chuchundra, more sorrowfully than ever. "And how am I to be sure that Nag won’t mistake me for you some dark night?” "There's not the least danger," said Rikki-tikki; "but Nag is in the garden, and I know you don't go there.” "My cousin Chua, the rat, told me—" said Chuchundra, and then he stopped. "Told you what?" "H'sh! Nag is everywhere, Rikki-tikki. You should have talked to Chua in the garden.” "I didn't—so you must tell me. Quick, Chuchundra, or I'll bite you!” Reread and notice the dialogue between two characters. 1

10 Core Lesson How does Rudyard Kipling develop and contrast different character’s points of view? Rikki’s point of view is that Chuchundra has nothing to worry about because he won’t go out into the garden, but Chuchundra has been told by his cousin, Chua, that Nag is everywhere, so he is in danger from his point of view. The contrast between these two characters is apparent through the dialogue between the two with Rikki’s character showing bravery and Chuchundra’s character showing complete cowardice.
