In To Kill a Mockingbird there were many characters who were misjudged such as Tom Robinson, Atticus Finch, and even Calpernia but the character who was most misjudged was Boo (Arthur) Radley because of the incident that he had with his father as a child, which was when people started viewing him as a monster when in reality he wasn’t. Flash back several years before Scout and Jem were even born, Boo Radley liked to hang out with the Cunningham's, who weren't the best group to hang around with, but he did. They ended up doing some not so good stuff, they were charged for " disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, assault and battery, and using abusive and profane language in the presence and hearing of a female." So right there people started
He's already helped the kids a significant amount, and I think that they will repay him in a way; even if it might not be portrayed in the book. They could show the townspeople his true nature and they could understand that he's not the disgrace they thought him to be. Perhaps they could even accept him as one of their own. I also predict that, because he was lurking outside of the courthouse, he might have something to do with the trial. (Q) Now, I understand that he has a free spirit and is entitled to his own actions, but why does Dolphus conceal his intentions?
He called both of them over to him but they were not sure what to do. “As Mr. Dolphus Raymond was an evil man I accepted his invitation reluctantly, but I followed Dill” (Lee 267). When they began to talk they found out that what he was drinking was coke and not alcohol, like people assumed he was and that he was a really nice man who just didn’t want to deal wiht the world around him. Scout’s neighbor Boo Radley had never gone outside before and shown his face. This made the town talk and they made up stories about why he never came out.
But some are just misunderstood, appearances being twisted by cruel rumors and opinions. Arthur Radley is one of the most famous examples of having a deceptive appearance. The children in Maycomb think he is evil and scary because he stays in his house all the time, creating dozens of rumours, when in reality he is a nice man that is just shy and misunderstood. As Scout and Atticus have a conversation at the end of the book, Scout says “‘Atticus, he was real nice’....’Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them’” (Lee 376). Arthur Radley is misunderstood by Scout until she finally meets him, seeing that he is a nice man.
In this novel, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, Curley’s wife is portrayed as a troublemaking, licentious, and desolate character. One example showing Curley’s wife being a troublemaker is when George first met her, he was very cautious. He said, “She’s gonna make a mess. They’s gonna be a bad mess about her. She’s jail bait all set on the trigger”’(51).
(Ch.16, Pg.168) Mr. Raymond acted as if he was drunk so he that he wouldn't need to explain to anyone his love for a black woman. The alcohol, he said, gave the community of Maycomb a reason to say, he didn't realize what he was doing. These kind of relations were completely unheard of during this time. Aunt Alexandra demonstrates discrimination, even against her own race, when she refused to allow Scout to have Walter Cunningham over for
Characterization Round Character Round characters are characters that are well-developed and act like real people. Amir was one of these characters. Amir started out as a privileged boy who could not live up to his father’s expectations. He was jealous of Hassan and, eventually, sacrifices him to earn Baba’s favor; however, this action brings him guilt. The story shows Amir trying to redeem himself from his childish and cowardly acts of the past as he becomes more selfless and braver.
When Jem and Scout were younger, they hear and create myths about a monster who conceals himself in his dark, mysterious house, never showing himself. Eventually, Dill becomes intrigued, using his creative imagination to add more details for enhancement. However, as the three children grow up, they begin to think differently about this monster, considering the fact that he may not be one after all. Instead, he is just an ordinary man, maybe even a hero. Boo Radley transforms from appearing as a mysterious and reserved monster to being recognized as a real hero because of the events concerning his uncertain past and the slow, yet sure build up of trust to where he finds the confidence, and capability to save Jem and Scout from Bob Ewell’s attack.
of Season 9 he is called, “a complex man”, suggesting that their is more to Booth than his appearance. However, he also represents a male who is successful with women, but in chivalrous way. He is a man most women expect to find; a man who can switch from being very manly and athletic a second to being a strong overprotective hero the next. 3. Throughout the television series, Agent Seeley Booth seems like a very confident and cocky man, who would mostly fit the category of a ‘player’ if it wasn’t for his really mature and religious attitudes.
At the opening of the play, Drummond is extremely unpopular with the townspeople. To put it simply, he’s downright hated. According to Reverend Brown, Drummond is “A vicious, godless man!” (27) Reverend Brown also says, “Henry Drummond is an agent of darkness. We let him in our town!” (27) These brutal statements alone show the pure abhorrence that is ebbing out of the town’s citizens. Plus, when Melinda, the little girl, first sees Drummond, she gasps and exclaims fearfully, “It’s the Devil!” (36) Drummond’s character also seems very unsympathetic at the beginning of the book.
