In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Atticus Finch has a level-headed and just personality, whilst his family’s cook, Calpurnia, is strong-headed and critical. Although differences in their characters set them apart, what brings them together is their equal, passionate love and care for the Finch children. Through different methods, both Atticus and Calpurnia make positive impacts on the children’s lives through lessons, lectures and experiences.
As Atticus said," I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody... I'm hard put sometimes- baby, it's never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn't hurt you. "(Lee,144-145).
Clarisse is an odd duck by this new world's gauges. She prefers nature, she isn't into brutality or TV, and she's not into empty mingling. She's occupied with odd things, which is the thing that attracts her to Montag – he's a firefighter without the average firefighter qualities. A darling of life and nature, Clarisse, an approachable neighbor who is seventeen, is the thwart of Mildred — Montag's frosty, careless, accommodating spouse. Delightfully human and mindful of her environment, Clarisse hates the reality discovering that goes for cutting edge instruction.

The society without knowing the intentions encounters such innocent beings creating them a monster that they were never before. Knowing that beauty is regarded with outer flight of the imagination still it s much praised. It is a fact that the heart that is beautiful tends to make happier than the face that is pretty.

The adjectives, ‘yellow and rotten’, also make the readers think as if Boo Radley is poor and low in a social hierarchy. Although Jem, who created this monstrous image of Boo Radley, did not exactly know how Boo actually looks like, he believes that Boo is inferior to them. Thus, Jem even did not feel guilty of ridiculing Boo. This
As human’s self-doubt surrounds their life, giving an individual the fear to be judge by others or being always in the shadow of others, is part of an insecure person.
