This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
After the storm clears the narrator decides to go back to find Doodle. "I went back and found him huddled beneath a bush"(426). "Doodle Doodle! I cried shaking him but, there was no answer just the ropy rain"(426). In conclusion, the narrator in "The Scarlet Ibis" causes his brother's death by getting him too excited, pushing him too hard, and by leaving him when he knows how bad his condition is.
Jem thinks that Boo left them for him because they were sewn together “all crooked.” This evidence might prove that Boo isn’t crazy or a monster. Has his father made him stay in the house? Why won’t he come outside? I believe that Arthur is a kind person and he will come out of his house later in the story. This quote was made to
When Calpurnia is scared she is still able to comfort Scout such as a mother would to her child by saying, “‘Don’t you fret,’ Calpurnia whispered to me, but the roses on her hat trembled indignantly,” (Lee, 158). When it is clear that Calpurnia and Scout have no relation, whatsoever, she still is able to reassure her. She continually proves her solicitude towards Scout by teaching her about what goes on in the world and by caring about her well being, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Calpurnia knows that they would not be connected other than the fact that she works for them and has to watch over them. Nevertheless, Calpurnia goes above and beyond when she decided to take their own needs before her own, by comforting them and not letting them worry about something, when she is clearly worried herself.
Arthur Radley (Boo) from Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird is a young man, living in Maycomb, Alabama, who is portrayed much differently to what he really is. Arthur is very reclusive, and has minimal interactions with others in his community. Boo Radley is also misunderstood, being unable to show who he really is in the community. He is also a very mysterious character in the book whose character is portrayed differently as people know Arthur as someone in their community that is dangerous and occasionally violent. First of all, being very reclusive could be a trait related to Arthur Radley.

Atticus teaches his children, Scout and Jem the important lesson of placing oneself in another’s position before going to judge him or her by asking them not to bother a character called Boo Radley. Boo Radley, a man never seen outside his house, ever, has superstition and rumors about him in the society of Maycomb since he never comes out. When Scout and Jem cannot get Boo to come out of his house, Scout remembered that earlier, Atticus had told her that “‘...if [she can] learn a simple trick, [she’ll] get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. [She’ll] never really understand a person until [she considers] things from his point of view...until [she climbs] into his skin and [walks] around in it’” (39). Atticus knows that there is a reason why Boo Radley does not come out of his house, why he told Scout and Jem not to bother him.
After the incident in the tree, Gene says over and over how it was Phineas’s fault because he was the one trying to sabotage Gene. In no way did Gene take the blame. He didn’t think “hey, maybe I made him fall out of the tree, because I am really mad at him”, no, he said, “This is all Phineas’s fault, if he had let me study, he wouldn’t have a broken leg”. Gene also blames Finny by saying he was the reason he had such a terrible time at Devon. Essentially, Phineas was the sole reason Gene did everything and was always miserable.
The the final line was crossed when Jack ordered his tribe to steal Piggy’s glasses, to start fires. Ralph and Piggy walked to Jack’s Camp and demanded the return of Piggy’s glasses. Without hesitation without pause, Roger unleashes the trap on them. The trap was a boulder when pushed would fall, Piggy who was blind and confused was struck and murdered. “Ralph wept for the end of innocence, darkness of man’s heart, and the pull through the air of truly a wise friend called Piggy” (Golding 184).
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.
Another example of Scout’s perspective problem is Calpurnia. Calpurnia insists that Walter is a guest and should be treated with respect and dignity. Scout can’t comprehend why Calpurnia thinks that Walter is a welcomed visitor. Scout also has problems with Atticus and how he thinks about school. Scout hates school and Miss Caroline.
When Scout has come to realize that she was no longer afraid of Boo Radley and had the courage to stand on the Radley front porch brings her to adult hood. She finally understands him and sees what he really is like. He is nice, now that she has finally seen him, which Atticus tells her later on “Most people are [real nice], Scout, when you finally see them” (281). She realized through gradual stages of change, that prejudgment of people is generally inaccurate, and that what people thought of Boo was untrue. Also Scout realizes how her teacher was being hypocritical.
Scout explains how “A jury never looks at the defendant if it has convicted, and when this jury came in, not one of them looked at Tom Robinson… Judge Taylor was polling the jury; ‘Guilty...Guilty...Guilty’”(211) When Scout and Jem hear the verdict, they are distraught. As they were walking home, “It was Jem’s turn to cry.. ‘It’s not right, Atticus’”(212) It is at this moment that Jem and Scout realize that as much as they want the world to be fair, it is never going to be in favor of them. The morals in Maycomb, no matter how unfair and biased they may be, will not change as the racism and prejudice present in the novel have been in Maycomb for as long as the people living there can remember. This incident is another example of a lesson learned for both Jem and Scout as they see that life is not always perfect, but they have to make out of it what they
Atticus became not only a role model for Scout and Jem but a role model for the whole town. He taught you not to be so quick to judge everything. From Boo Radley to Walter Cunningham, he shows how to accept people for who they are and to get know them before you judge them. “Because that is they only way he can pay me, he has no money” (Lee 21). When Scout saw the Cunninghams paying in different things like Hickory nuts and Stovewood, she was quick to question the payment.
Along with Scout, Skeeter also faces gender discrimination and is against it as well. Skeeter also believes that people should see things from other people 's point of view before they are too quick to judge. Both Scout and Skeeter are not afraid to speak their minds even though it might contradict what others believe and their reactions show their moral beliefs. Scout always speaks her mind even when it might get her in trouble. First example of this is when Scout is at their family 's Christmas celebration when her Aunt Alexandra comments on what Scout is wearing.
