Scout Finch is a very courageous and confident little girl. Part of her courage and confidence comes from the naivety of being a child. She doesn't always know or understand the danger around her. Part of her courage is because her father, Atticus, he encourages her good decisions and is easily forgiving. Atticus is also to blame for her confident, since he is an upstanding and intelligent man in the community.
I knew what she was thinking. She has grown up, and I had merely grown unworthy of her love.” (83) Nea finally realized she was being foolish the whole time. Chai’s protagonist in “Saving Sourdi”, Nea, is naïve, impulsive, and brash. She is unchanging and narrow-minded. Nea’s journey seems solely based on saving her sister when in actuality she is trying to find excuses to avoid growing up.
Francis was a racist, mean, little girl that only cares about her last name. Jem and Scout looks at everyone equal and see the world like they should. Atticus is raising his children like he should. Atticus' ways may be different than others, but if they do something wrong once, they will not do it again. Atticus is judged by a few in the community, but he is a great father.
Whereas both Mrs. Bridge and Mrs. Colbert find themselves trapped within societal expectations in the end, Cecile does not. Instead, perhaps due to her benevolence and lack of concern regarding class norms, she grows into what readers may assume is a happy rewarding marriage with multiple children she
Just because someone is intelligent doesn’t mean that they will always be respected. Scout was often put down for her intelligence. Her innocence was also used against her sometimes and her friendliness allowed her to not judge people until she got to know
“Yo’ folks might be better’n the Cunninghams but it don’t count for nothin’ the way you’re disgracin’ ‘em” (Lee 24). Calpurnia gave Scout a lesson she’ll remember for life. Scout changes in many ways in “To Kill A Mockingbird.” She becomes mature, ladylike, and accepting. She’s finally able to step into someone else’s shoes and see their life. By the end of the book, Scout Finch becomes someone Atticus can be proud
To Scout, she is just another human being. Scout judged her from her personality and bases her perceptions of Calpurnia solely on that. She may be young, however, it is Scout’s lack of experience of the concept of race and racism that makes her uneducated in this whole topic. Scout can
2 Questions of “Brownies” 1. In the short story, “Brownies,” I would describe the narrator, whose name is Laurel, as a shy and timid girl, questioning the way people act. Most of the girls in her group do not take a liking to her, for she says, “[They] already decided their course of action, me being the only impediment” (Packer 847). Moreover, the narrator is very smart because she is skeptical, for she is the only one who questions the girls if they, in fact, heard troop 909 call one of the girls a nigger. Since I am shy with teenagers my age and am sometimes the outside of the group, I feel as if I can imagine being friends with Laurel.
The role models of Calpurnia, Miss Maudie, and Atticus teach her lessons on her education, racism, and respect. The character of Miss Maudie in To Kill a Mockingbird aids Scout in her coming of age by showing her the good, teaching her important lessons about Maycomb, and standing up for what she believes in. In the
Of course, there were more factors involved in Esperanza’s mother’s failure to achieve success and personal satisfaction than the specific events specified in this vignette and throughout the book. The reader can assume that the lack of parental guidance and financial support definitely wilted the mom’s confidence. It is safe to infer that she was readily teased and mocked in school for her impecunious appearance, which played a substantial role in fostering a sense
Throughout the book, Scout fights less and less because she realizes it does her no good. Scout was more of a tomboy than a girly girl. Aunt Alexandra didn’t like how she didn’t act like a proper lady, and would ask Scout to act more ladylike. As she grew up, she was able to understand things a lot better. She began acting more grown up in situations like Aunt Alexandra’s dinner party.
Although young she has a fierce grip on truth. This truth rarely compromises giving her a strong standard of what to live by. With this standard she faces life never relenting on what she believes to be right and fighting against anything she believes to be a lie. “I don’t know what you’re talkin’ bout but you better cut it out this red hot minute.” (83) These words were uttered by Scout in blind defense of her father. As her cousin begins to slander Atticus, Scout loses her temper and, despite not understanding the boy, defends Atticus without considering any facts.
