Scout loses her childhood innocence throughout the story as she grows up and realizes not everything you do is acceptable. Miss Maudie ¨Do you think Boo Radley is still alive?¨ says Scout (Lee, 57). Scout clearly isn't mature enough to realize this question is not appropriate to be talking about with your neighbors because it isn't the right environment or person. Also tone Miss Maudie responds with clearly gives off the impression that she does not think Scout have asked that question. Scout then realizes that boo isn't such a bad person.
Scout(the main 's protagonist) and Burris Ewell are an example of a character foil in the book "To Kill a Mockingbird".Even though they went to school together, they are two people with very different views.Scout who is Intelligent and cared about education.As she get respect from other people.As she is a clean person.While on the other hand Barris is ignorant and does not care about anything.He alaays does not have any respect and feel neglected from the world.He has no manner of being clean and being racist to the
The quote is not portraying people as heroes all the time. No one wanted to be the bearer of bad news, or had “nerve enough” which is relatable, but the way it’s presented is very different. Because Maycomb is such a small town, any rabble rousing would not be tolerated, but the boy was Arthur Radley’s and no one wanted to upset Mr. Radley. Later on, after Scout invites Walter Cunningham over for lunch, she comments on Walter’s excessive use of syrup and calls him out. An enraged Calpurnia summons her to the kitchen and says, “There’s some folks who don’t eat like us,’ she whispered fiercely, ‘but you ain’t called on to contradict ‘em at the table when they don’t.
Scout narrates, “ A jury never looks at a defendant it has convicted, and when this jury came in, not one of them looked at Tom Robinson”( Lee 282). Judging from this evidence Scout’s knowledge towards peoples body language is higher than any other kids her age. The readers might not understand this, but one of the reasons she recognises this is because of her father’s knowledge that he passed on to his daughter. Furthermore, Scout is a young girl with an outgoing personality, but she still manages to keep herself together when she learns about Tom Robinson’s death. Scout narrates, “after all, if Aunty could be a lady so could I” (Lee 318).
She means that Atticus treats his family with the same attitude he would treat strangers, and hides nothing. This quote is important because it teaches us that the townspeople know what Atticus is like, and know he is equal to everybody. Quote #10- This quote is when Walter Cunningham has not brought any lunch to school, and is interrogated by Miss Caroline. Scout has to explain why Walter couldn’t have a lunch, and is “whipped” after explaining that Walter is poor. Scout knows that the Cunninghams only pay back in favours, are poor, and work hard, but she can’t explain this all as “well as Atticus did.” This quote is important because it shows how unfamiliar Miss Caroline is to Maycomb, and that Scout is the one looked to to explain these
"It'd be sort of like shootin' a mockingbird, wouldn't it" (Lee, 370). Through Scout's remark, Harper Lee teaches that Arthur Radley is possibly the most accurate representation of a mockingbird. Just as a mockingbird does nothing but sing, so Arthur never bothered anyone because no one ever saw him excluding the time he helped these kids. According to the author, bringing such a man, one who has been in isolation almost his entire life, before the jury to defend himself would be comparable to killing him. Atticus, as well as Scout and the Sherriff, understood this.
In the novel it states,”’Scout," said Atticus, "nigger-lover is just one of those terms that don't mean anything—like snot-nose. It's hard to explain—ignorant, trashy people use it when they think somebody's favoring Negroes over and above themselves’” (104). This quote shows that Atticus does not follow what everyone else in Maycomb believes and isn’t embarrassed about telling Scout about it. It is important for him to teach this to Scout and Scout learns immensely from it by taking it into her own life and not judging others based on their skin just because all of her friends do. Also, Atticus showed Scout and Jem that it was important to do what one wants to do and not what others wants one to do.Atticus shows the children this by not “living on the land” of Finch’s Landing like the rest of his family members but rather becoming a lawyer.
The character, Piggy, is part of a broader spectrum that one might not pick up on the first interpretation of the novel. Piggy has no qualities that kids that young would appreciate so he is ignored through the entire novel. To begin, today in pop culture being a person of a heavier set is viewed as feeble, weak, and incapable of even the simplest of tasks. Also, Piggy is a very intelligent kid, but, on an island with several other kids that do not understand the validity of the circumstances they are currently in, there is no need for intelligence since the kids do not care about intellect. A final reason for all the suffrage Piggy had to endure, is that Piggy focused on the essentials such as rescue, lodging, and a steady food source while the others were focused on hunting and gathering meat for sustenance.
In Washington Irving’s short story “Rip Van Winkle,” the main character Rip Van Winkle is spending his days merrily ignorant of any real work and issues. He tends to the needs of the children and wives of his village instead of his own family as he seemed to have “...an insuperable aversion to all kinds of profitable labor” (pg. 620). This carefree attitude caused problems with his marriage, and his wife, Dame Van Winkle, would often chastise him or kick him out of the house. It is with these thoughts that Rip begins to make his way home early one night, only to be stopped by a “short, square built fellow” (pg.
There families are put together by the government and they are never actually related, also they have no aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas, or cousins. The people have very little freedom, they are constantly being watched and if they do one little thing that is wrong they can get punished severely. They cannot go anywhere past their community, nobody has ever been out there and nobody knows what's out there. Even when nobody knows what's out there, there really is no out there. If you were to travel far enough like Jonas did, you would find barren wilderness.
Therefore he beat him up until his mom jumped in his place and got beat up instead, she would do anything for her children. This quote is relevant to the novel because in the beginning of the book O-lan was working for The Great House of Hwang, however, she never talked about it unless it was for her children’s sake. Wang Lung was surprised to hear that then reason that his son was misbehaving was because of women. O-lan suggested getting him a slave, however, his father would not allow that. He decided he was proud his son was a young lord.
He doesn’t want to have manners and I do. When Miss Watson tries to teach him manners he gets mad and doesn’t listen to her. She wants him to be a good educated boy. I listen to my parents when they tell me to do things. Huck runs away one day so he could be free.
She always thought one of her neighbors was a creepy old man who never comes out of his house but in reality he was just afraid of society and what’s currently going on. Her father, Atticus already knew what was up with their neighbor, Boo Radley. Boo Radley was much better of a person than Scout first thought, he left the kids treats and gifts in the tree. This event shows off that Boo Radley is actually
