Scout knows Atticus is older than most of her peer’s parents, at first she is upset about it, eventually she learns that it’s not bad to have an older parent. Scout realizes this when Atticus shoots the dog, Tim Johnson, without glasses. Miss Maudie then asked Scout if she was still ashamed of her father and she replied with “no.” Scout also learns Boo Radley stays inside because he wants to, and stops bothering him until the end of the book where she learns he’s kind when he saves Scout and Jem’s lives. Finally, Scout realizes Calpurnia isn’t just a black woman, she’s a mother figure. “Yo’ folks might be better’n the Cunninghams but it don’t count for nothin’ the way you’re disgracin’ ‘em” (Lee 24).
I think she didn’t change from beginning to end. because she is not racist at the beginning till the end. In the beginning of the story she is not racist and she is funny because on page 3 leanora says “esther that funny talking kid. Only esther didn’t mind about me being colored. This quote supports that she is not racist at the beginning and she is funny.
As soon as the governess sees the Peter Quint, she puts the safety of the children above all else. After seeing Mr. Quint, the governess describes herself as “a screen—[she] was to stand before them [for] the more [she] saw, the less they would” (James 27). The governess behaves rationally and is able to carry out her job successfully. This is something only a sane person could do, as an insane person could not carry out the task of protecting the children and keeping them safe from whatever dangers there may be. The governess also states that, “[she] was there to protect and defend the little creatures” (James 27).
She is an exceptionally religious lady who believes God has a plan for their lives. While encouraging Beneatha she declares, “Course you going to be a doctor, honey, God willing” (Hansberry 50). Mama realizes that God is the one who actually controls their lives, and in the end it comes down to whether he wants Beneatha to be a doctor or not. When Beneatha replies that God has no control over it and He simply does not need to be recognized in her choice, Mama becomes heated. She forces Beneatha to recite, “In my mother’s house there is still God” (Hansberry 51).
“You ain’t got no business bringin’ white chillun here- they got their church, we got our’n. It is our church, ain’t it, Miss Cal?” said Lula, a lady from the Negro church (Lee 119). This is an example of reverse prejudice because a Negro woman is being prejudice to white children. She thinks just because people of the same race as the children were prejudice towards her and her race that she can be prejudice towards anyone of the white
This author used pathos, ethos, and logos to persuade the viewer to buy their gum via emotional triggers and subtle details.

Sally was beaten by her father earlier in the book and left Esperanza alone at the fair when a big boy came and took Sally.

She did things for her. This statement relates to my thesis because my thesis states, When life gives you a time to shine, don’t give it away, you may need it someday. Scout never gave up a chance that was offered to
This excerpt from Maxine Clair’s “Cherry Bomb” is a prime representation of an adult character reminiscing in memories of youth and innocence. Through the description of her “box of private things” and the cherry bomb incident, she uses appropriate diction, figurative language, and imagery while reflecting on past summers where time wasn’t consumed by school, capturing the pure moments of childhood. To begin with, the persona’s younger self picks up the “lofty” saying ‘I am in this world, but not of it’ without a clear understanding of what the message truly entails. She chooses it based on the fact that it seems to sound important. This reflection of her past shows a sense of immaturity, and is supported by other various examples of forward diction that tie back into her young personality at the time.
Atticus is judged by a few in the community, but he is a great father. In To Kill a Mocking Bird, Atticus Finch is criticized by many people in the community about how he raises his children. Two characters in the novel that portray this action are Aunt Alexandra and Uncle Jack. Aunt Alexandra does not accept the way he raises Scout and how he lets her go around dressed like a boy. Uncle Jack just disagrees with Atticus' whole view on disciplining his kids.
Initially, Ha recites, “No one can sweep, for why sweep away hope? No one can splash water, for why splash away joy?” (1). Ha knows this Buddhist saying, revealing she practices Buddhism. Ha states, “Bumps enlarge on my chilled skin as I realize we will be coming back every Sunday” (172), following her arrival in America. This means Ha’s faith has been changed for the sake of blending in with the American Christians around her and not because her beliefs have changed.
The diction choices progress into detail throughout the scene, allowing for strong examples of imagery with familiar scenes. “Autumn again, and Boo’s children need him,” (374). For the duration of the passage, Scout defines the children as “his.” By the end, “his” children have become “Boo’s” children. Lee intended the reader to capture Boo’s mindset through her chosen diction. He had become their neighbor, their friend.
