Arthur “Boo” Radley is a seemingly minor but subtly impactful character in Lee’s book. According to rumor, he joined a gang, was convicted of some relatively minor crime, and was supposed to be sent to a state boarding school, but his father refused. Boo once, while cutting up newspapers, stabbed his mother in the leg with scissors and continued calmly scanning the papers. His father convinced a judge not to send Boo to an asylum, so he was kept in his house, never seen again by the community, and became the source of horror stories for children. The flames of gossip are, as usual, fueled thoroughly by Miss Stephanie Crawford and tend to be ridiculously twisted: “Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained” (16).
