One more reason Calpurnia is a better mother figure is because she brings Jem and Scout up just a little harder than a mother would. Atticus says to Aunt Alexandra, “she’s never let them get away with anything, she’s never indulged them the way most colored nurses do. She tried to bring them up according to her lights, and Cal’s lights are pretty good” (Lee 183).

Day 15: a character/s you love and why I couldn’t pick just one, as I’ve always said Ryke and Daisy are a package deal to me. They represent the deepest core of my being as a couple and an individual character.

She’s my sweet courageous girl who loves intently with all her heart; who is very perceptive and understanding of others; who always make a point to make everyone feel included. She’s loyal, wild, and reckless, but never at the expense of others.
A good example of a character is Bertrande.Coras describes Bertrande as “ “given the weakness of sex, (was) easily deceived by the cunning and craftiness of men.” (Davis, pg 110). He (Coras) considered her ignorant of Arnaud 's true identity, hence innocent of wrongdoing.” (Finlay, pg 555) Davis however describes Bertrande as known more as an honorable and independent character who acts more like a hero rather than evil.

Because of these new characteristics Davis “does not yield a portrait of Bertrande that is either plausible or persuasive.” (Finlay, pg
