However in the end Doodle might have tried too hard because, when death comes knocking the door is usually answered and, sadly for Doodle he may have been strong but not strong enough, ¨ For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain.¨ this symbolises the death of a bird called an ibis that Doodle had taken the care to bury just hours before, and his brother the narrator is now, remembering how just like Doodle the scarlet ibis had come so far from where is started only to die a tragic and sorrowful death, and how remarkable that it was the accomplishments they both made. Going more in depth in this his brother had never really shown compassion towards Doodle and sort of thought of him as a burden. THis is why some may see it as surprising that he felt so much emotion when his brother passed but, others not so much because, through the resentment there was always love only to be cut short by a short life. Taking a look back at the story it seems like everything lead up to Doodles death and it seemed as if there was a lot of death mentioned as it progressed too.
People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Harper Lee 10). This quote helps explain that Boo is locked up because Scout and Jem, as well as most people in town, have never seen Boo inside of the house or outside of the house. They also will not meet Boo because they are scared of him. During the story they explain that when something happens in the town, Boo is to blame. This quote helps explain some of the crimes or scary acts, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows… people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated” (Harper Lee 10).
Instead of being sent to a detention centre, his father locked him up in his house and now he is mentally unstable from the years of isolation.

My Uncle Boone was amazed that I hit three birds in three shots something he doesn’t do every often. Buck complimented my impressive wing shooting for my age and little duck and goose hunting experience I had. I offered to go and find the ducks in the field since we didn’t bring any of our hunting dogs along. I scanned the ground to find the ducks that seem to mysteriously disappear once they hit they ground. I found the two drake green heads my uncle shot, my two drake green heads and one hen green head, and bucks one green head before I walked back to the decoy spread.
For his character it is important to the story that he lives a double life since it gives the book some mystery. For most of Boo’s life he has always stayed in his house and the town does not know what he is like. For example in the first chapter Jem is describing to Dill and Scout what Boo might look like, he says “...judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained… There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time” (Lee 16).
The novel, To Kill A Mockingbird, says, “Nobody knew what form of intimidation Mr. Radley employed to keep Boo out of sight, but Jem figured that Mr. Radley kept him chained to the bed most of the time” (Lee 11). In this scene Miss Stephanie Crawford, Scout and Jem Finch are talking about Boo Radley. From this line the reader can tell that Boo does not go out of the house and he is mysterious. Furthermore, when Scout, Jem, and Dill pretend to be Boo and stab his father, this helps the reader build Boo’s characterization that he is evil.

In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Harper Lee uses the motif of Boo Radley and finding gifts in the tree to teach Jem and Scout that they shouldn’t blindly believe the rumors they hear but find out the truth for themselves and form impressions based on it. Scout and Jem find gifts in the knothole of a tree on the Radley lot, presumably left by Boo Radley. Mr. Radley, Boo’s brother ends up plugging the knothole with cement, claiming the tree is dying. Jem stays outside on the porch until sundown after he finds out that the knothole has been blocked. When Jem comes inside, Scout comments to herself, “ [Jem] stood there until nightfall, and I waited for him.

In “The Scarlet Ibis,” by James Hurst we are told the story of Doodle from his brother’s perspective. We’re told just how crazy Doodle could be, how delicate he was and how he cared for a certain bird.

John J. Audubon and Annie Dillard both experienced the same phenomenon – enormous flocks of birds (pigeons) passing over their heads in flight. They both presented a sense of awe at the sight. However, they portrayed that awe and their other emotions very differently. Audubon’s language was more analytical, and it allowed the reader to grasp the experience with their mind. In contrast, Dillard was more whimsical, and described her experienced so the reader could understand the experience with their heart.
