There are many characters in To Kill A Mockingbird that are seen differently from whom they truly are in reality, this is because in this era people look at black people differently and don’t treat them as equally than they would look at white man or woman during this time. Jem states "Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that's why his hands were bloodstained If you ate an animal raw, you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten his eyes popped out, and he drooled most of the time." ( 13) . Here Jem is explaining what he thinks boo radley looks like.
Both of the stories have anthropomorphism. Anthropomorphism is when animals have human characteristics. The animals talked and also wore clothes. The protagonists were clever and smart. Master Cat tricked an ogre by eating him when he turned into a mouse and Coyote cheated in a game of dice when Thunder wasn’t looking.
A disgusting black rat jumped onto biggers pant leg and bit on to it, bigger shook his leg until the rat flew off and then eventually killed it in front of his whole family with a shoe. This rat is important on a few levels. Superficially, the rat shows us the kind of filth and poverty that Bigger and his family are forced to live in. The rat could also be looked at as symbol of bigger himself, the rat comes into the domestic sphere of the Thomas house and is killed and Bigger comes into the domestic sphere of the Dalton household and is ultimately killed in the end.

Firstly, Boo (Arthur) Radley shows in many ways that he lives a double life. For his character it is important to the story that he lives a double life since it gives the book some mystery. For most of Boo’s life he has always stayed in his house and the town does not know what he is like. For example in the first chapter Jem is describing to Dill and Scout what Boo might look like, he says “...judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained… There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time” (Lee 16). What comes to mind when Jem said that is that Boo was a monster, but Boo is far from a monster.
To Kill a Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee, narrates an unbiased, non-filtered, and innocent viewpoint from that of Scout Finch. If the novel were rewritten from another’s perspective (such as Jem’s or Atticus’), the main concept of the book would be altered. The narrative of Atticus Finch would influence less of an impact; his knowledge and experience with the town of Maycomb would weaken the depth of Tom Robinson’s case. Just like Scout’s—Jem’s outlook would also call attention to the problematic practice of racism. However, his sense of understanding the immorality of it is more mature than her.
In the beginning of the book Stephanie Crawford, the town gossiper, justifies that she knows everything about Boo Radley. Scout and Jem are frightened by Boo Radley because of all the stories they have heard. Scout is terrified of the Radley place and calls Boo, a “malevolent phantom.” According to Miss Stephanie Crawford, Boo Radley was sitting in the living room cutting some items from the newspaper and when Mr. Radley had passed by him, Boo drove the scissors into his leg. They also learn that the reason Boo Radley’s hands are bloodstained are because he eats any squirrels or cats he finds. Jem also describes him as a horrific scary monster, but these are only based on facts that Stephanie Crawford has told them and the town.
