Eckleburg, and God is watching down on the characters because he sees everything that they do. Even though the comparison was made directly to Mrs. Wilson by Mr. Wilson, it is not exclusive to their situation.

Jesus did the same thing as Jim, Jesus humbles himself to serve the lowly people of that time. Jesus was above all of them and could have said screw you and just look past them, But had a sense of good in him just like Jim did. The sinners he is teaching lesson to are going down the wrong path and again Jesus wants the best for them, “When Jesus went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and He felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things.” ( Mark 6:34 ). The verse says “they were like sheep without a shepherd”, this is just like Huck didn 't have a father figure in his life to teach him the right things in life.

Honesty is essential in the quest for freedom. In Between the World and Me, Coates tells his son the truth, without fear, without repression, and without appeasement. Coates doesn’t write as a spokesperson for the black community, but he writes knowing that he will be a spokesperson not matter where he is or what he does.

To Kill a Mocking Bird Literary Criticism Hero; a man who is admired for courage and bravery. Atticus Finch is established as this “hero,” in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, a book illustrating the setting for the mid 1930’s in the Deep South. The writer, Harper Lee portrays a different type of hero. A lawyer defending an African American. Some propose Mr. Finch was not a man of fortitude.
Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird was long seen as a cultural role model, a person who’s strong morals held up even under the scrutiny of his entire town and their attempts to stop him from making the right decision and doing the right thing. Then, Go Set A Watchman was released, and a darker side to Atticus Finch was revealed. Atticus’s fall is a jarring one to many readers, but upon further reflection it just shows that he is a product of his time.
