Sonnet 130 is written to express how different the Dark lady's attributes is from the era's ideal standard. Yet, the author finds her a rarity among the other idealized women. On the other hand, "Beauty in Ugly" by Jason Mraz, invokes the listener to understand that his intended recipient is ordinary and unremarkable. Yet, thee is beauty in ugly and she has other things to offer. Both works share a similarity in how they make an unremarked woman their focus, while at same time professing admiration for her.
When she receives an air gun as a gift, Scout is instructed to leave the mockingbirds alone for “its a sin to kill a mockingbird” and they pose no threat. Lee uses the mockingbird as a symbol of purity, innocence and harmlessness. Tom Robinson is a black male “Old Mr. Bob Ewell accused... of rapin‘ his girl” (Mayella Ewell a young white girl) “an’ had him arrested an‘ put in jail—” Though all evidence points to her father, Robert Ewell Tom is convicted. In this situation, Tom is the mockingbird; shot down even though he has done no harm to anyone. Harper continues to address this theme when scout wears pants instead of dresses.
They don’t eat crops, build nests in the trees, they simply just sing “their hearts out”. Therefore it is a sin to kill a mockingbird, it’s innoscence is pure and only gives some beauty to life. The book’s theme is in fact this, innoscence of a mockingbird and the sin to kill it. The first example is Tom Robinson. Tom Robinson is a man among “ the coulored people” who was accused of raping a white girl, Mayella Ewell.
Lee has many intentions and beliefs for her writing the novel, she highlighted equality, civil rights, racisms, prejudice and bigotry. This ties in with the title of the novel because there are two characters that are portrayed as mockingbirds Boo Radley and Tom Robinson. Mockingbirds in the novel are proven to be a sin to kill, as quoted on page 98 “mockingbirds don’t do one things but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up peoples gardens, don’t nest in the cribs, don’t do one thing just sing their hearts for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” This description in the novel is based on everyone deserving equal rights no matter their skin colour, and everyone should be innocent until proven guilty.
In the story, the innocents are destroyed by evil, the “mockingbird” comes to represent the idea of innocence. Thus, to kill a mockingbird is to destroy innocence. Such as when Atticus says “Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit'em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird” (103). Another example could be when Boo stabs Bob Ewell to save Jem and Scout, which sheriff Tate decides to say that Mr.Ewell fell on the knife, so Boo won’t have to go to court. In which Scout says “Well, it’d be sort of shootin a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?” (317).
“Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement” (Rita Mae Brown) This quote from Rita Mae Brown is saying that even though someone will make bad judgement at some point in their life they can take that and use it as experience to make good judgement the next time. The novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee shows the evil of prejudice through the eyes of a young girl named Scout Finch. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird Dill learns the harsh reality of the real world. Throughout the story Scout learns that there is only one kind of people through the teachings of her father. Throughout the story Jem realizes that he shouldn’t judge people until he understands them.
The Mockingbird Spirit of Innocence How do you define innocence? Is there someone out in the world who is purely innocent? To understand innocence you should look at what a mockingbird does, because all they do is sing. In Harper Lee’s classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus and Miss Maudie teach Scout and Jem that it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird. Mockingbirds are an important symbol because they represent goodness and innocence.
On the surface, it could seem at first that we are born into a world blanketed with hopeless, moral fog, but throughout the fog, which is created by none other than the forces of conscience and emotion that pumps through our mortal bodies, are the wandering, searching souls of our innocence, praying to emerge unscathed, and our corruption preying on the previously named. Three characters in the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” remarkably portray separate, yet very evident representations of the infamous mockingbird and contribute a view that maybe there are more mockingbirds then what is first assumed. These three characters: “Boo” Radley, Scout Finch, and Tom Robinson, resided in the slow, quaint, old town of Maycomb, County, Alabama. In
The inner struggle through the use of language also demonstrates that Turtle is not very aware of the power she holds as a person. The redeeming qualities that Turtle does possess are not truly acknowledged by her, as all she thinks about is how stupid she is when making small mistakes. Martin’s mental abuse on Turtle has her believing that she will never amount to anything important and this causes her to be distant and maintain hate that manifests in small bursts like her, “what do you know about it, sugar tits?” comment to Rilke. The author evokes a tone of voice full of empathy towards both girls because at the end of that interaction both suffer from some kind of
In the short story “The Possibility of Evil” written by Shirley Jackson the main protagonist, Miss Adela Strangeworth demonstrates multiple traits of her complex personality through her actions, thoughts and the way she communicates. A couple of these traits that are significant to her character are insensitivity and masquerading. Imagine an insanely insensitive person who does not care how others feel. Miss Stangeworth’s unpleasant letters advocate her observations rather than facts or feelings. In a letter she writes anonymously to the Crane family saying “DIDN’T YOU EVER SEE AN IDIOT CHILD BEFORE?
She takes this as a forerunner of Duncan 's death. Duncan, the naïve visionary, sees lucky birds, however Lady Macbeth sees threatening ones. One symbol does not discount the other: for Duncan, "fair" comes to be "foul" as the lucky martlets mutate into the lethal
