Point of view plays a very strong role in the novel because it is what decides what readers know and don't know. In this case, it decided how readers feel and helps feed ideas into their minds. "I knew exactly what to make of it, and it made me mad enough to spit...what business had dad in healing that man...what right had Holgren to cross paths with the Great God Almighty"(80).

Rueben's use of the word "dad" and "Great God Almighty" causes readers to believe with Rueben that his dad is comparable to a god.

Even though Tom Robinson is a black man it makes it difficult for Atticus because they were in the era of the Great Depression where there
Encouraging and inspiring the imagination, Theodor Seuss Geisel is a universally renown author of children’s literature. Dr. Seuss entertains his audience while instilling his own values and life lessons in his writings. His ambiguous stories affect readers in different ways depending on the level of interpretation.
