How Is Boo Radley Brave

Satisfactory Essays
As a kid, no one wants to be seen as a coward. Therefore, they commit actions to try to prove and label themselves as brave. In How to Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Jem portrays to Dill and Scout that Boo Radley is raw-animal eating monster that's isolated in his home. By creating this false identity, when Jem goes on many daring adventures to the Radley place, he proves his bravery to his friends. However, his determination to prove his bravery and spreading lies about Boo restricts him from emphasizing with Boo Radley. Jem Finch cannot empathize with Boo Radley since he’s so focused on proving his bravery to Dill and Scout that he forgets that Boo is a human that needs to be emphasized.
