The mockingbird was symbolic of Tom’s true, pure heart, and his death was because of nothing but the inequities within society. Mr. Ewell’s sin caused sorrow and horror in Scout’s life, but it also lead to her realization that discrimination was wrong, something that Atticus wished for her to know all along. Further along in the story, Scout’s growth is proved when Atticus suggests sending Boo Radley to trial for killing Bob Ewell. Scout says, “‘Well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?’” (276).

For no reason at all in the world they would have killed me.” pg.122 This quote is a representation of how Montag’s society has people that will randomly run into someone, kill them and think that it is ok.

The main reason George killed Lennie is because Lennie would have killed somebody again. And the evidence is clearly there, the pet mice that he killed, the poor puppy that he accidently hit to hard, and especially Curley’s wife.

The acting in The Outsiders is compelling to watch because it keeps the viewers on edge and excited. A scene with exceptional acting is right after Johnny kills a Social gang member in the park because he was drowning Pony. The scene starts with Johnny sitting against the fountain wall in a medium shot with the bloody knife in his grip.

Evil is towering over, and no one is able to save Beowulf until Wiglaf his only warrior who stay behind helps him out.

George killing Lennie was a justified murder because Lennie was too dangerous, Lennie would have been killed anyways, and he only would slow George down and drag him into trouble. Lennie was way too dangerous to be kept alive, because he has no comprehension of his true strength. He was just too mentally challenged to even understand his sheer power.
So, I decided to throw a tantrum in the pool and everyone just stared at me in horror and my grandpa said he would only give my favorite lizard back if I stopped crying.
