Scout is considered to be the “mockingbird” of the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird ,by Harper Lee. According to the article Excerpts From: “Don’t Put Your Shoes on the Bed: A Moral Analysis of To Kill a Mockingbird.” “mockingbird” means, “... a serene creature with nothing but beautiful music to offer” (Stiltner 1). In other words, a “mockingbird” is a peaceful bird that is innocent. In the part of the novel when Tom Robinson was convicted of raping Mayella Ewell and Atticus was told to defend Tom, Scout heard about this and asked Atticus, “ “What’s rape?”(Lee 180). This quote justifies that Scout 's innocence and lack of understanding qualifies her being a “mockingbird”. As the novel progresses we see how Scout becomes more like a “mockingbird”.
