(Lee 323). Boo Radley was portrayed as a reclusive freak by the town of Maycomb. The foolish curiosity about this invisible monster led Jem and Scout to discover that Boo was not a monster at all. Once they finally saw him, Scout and Jem realized he was kind and courageous.
Tom Robinson is innocent of the crimes he is accused of, but people do not believe what he says. Lots of people get blamed for things that they did not necessarily do. People are victimized and tortured for no reason, this is what a mockingbird is. In Lord of the Flies, there's lots of examples of how Piggy could be known as a Mockingbird.
This was really important during this time because of all the racism and judgment going on. Scouts intelligence, innocence, and friendliness shaped her view of the events in To Kill a Mockingbird. Just because someone is intelligent doesn’t mean that they will always be respected. Scout was often put down for her intelligence.
Harper Lee illustrated Tom Robinson as a kind, church-going man. However, the town sees him as a criminal who took advantage of Mayella Ewell. The citizens of Maycomb felt that Atticus should not bother defending him because he did not deserve it. They made their disapproval known by making whispers about both Atticus and Tom Robinson, advertising a new cartoon modeled after Atticus, and assembling a mob to attack Tom Robinson in jail (Lee chapter 12).Mrs. Dubose was one of those citizens who was not afraid to make her opinion known, even to Jem and Scout, telling them, “Yes indeed, what has this world come to when a Finch goes against his raising?
Winston is not a person someone can admire, but he does deserve sympathy and pity. His vulnerability makes him so very human. If anything is to go about, Winston is an anti-hero, but at the same time, he is nevertheless the protagonist of the story and an "Everyman" type all at the same time. Julia and Winston both believe that at first, that their minds and their hearts are inaccessible. O'Brien then shows them that they are both wrong at the end and that everything Winston did is the worst type of crime.
Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Anybody who thinks that he or she knows another person, even the closest one, inside out is mistaken. As proverb saying: “Every bean has its black”; in other words, everyone has secrets but some secrets are darker than others. Dr. Jekyll loved being a good and decent man and was ashamed of “the evil side of his nature” (Stevenson 52), so he decided to purify himself from evil-self. Unfortunately, Dr. Jekyll failed to do so; the darkness of his evil nature completely overpowered the light of his kind heart.
Tom Robinson was
In sealand people are very forgiving of of the sins the people make and they do not care about deformities that some people might have. However the people of waknuk are not as forgiving. Especially Joseph Storm who is david's father, who beats david when he said “I could managed it all right by myself if I’d had another hand” (26). After this statement had been said Joseph had beaten david very badly. On the other hand the people from the fringes are not forgiving of the people from waknuk because they were outcast from there.
Because Nick is surrounded by immoral people, he has to remember where he comes from. The geographical division of the mid-west is reflected in Nick’s honesty and
It was sinful to treat Tom Robinson like trash because of hatred towards his race. It was sinful to keep Boo Radley locked away from society because of the mistakes he made. These preventable situations are like killing a mockingbird; you shouldn’t do it but it is done anyway. Tom Robinson and Boo Radley were mockingbirds because they were not a threat to society, yet were punished for being human. Holocaust victims were alienated in a reprehensible way.
In conclusion the quote “Remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird” teaches Scout and the reader that it would be wrong to kill or harm something good and innocent in the world because they are good and innocent, would make the world a worse place, and they do for us it. Finally think how you have treated people who are mockingbirds, how can you do something for them in return, and how can you become one of these people
After attempts to murder two children, Bob Ewell is attacked and stabbed to death- an event that reveals the legitimate personality and identity of Boo Radley. Previously known as merely an isolated maniac, the character Boo has much more depth than any of his neighbors imagined. Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird reveals the true personality of Boo as displayed through the simile of the mockingbird, imagery of his neighbor’s descriptions, and the heroic plot twist in the final chapters of the book.
Arthur Radley’s change in the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” written by Harper Lee reflects the theme of prejudice. Throughout the book, Arthur Radley (whose nickname was “Boo” Radley since he was seen as a horrible person) was prejudged by the whole town of Maycomb because of his appearance, his past, and rumors that people had heard about him, but by the end he proves everyone wrong and it shows how he’s actually a brave and kind man. The first example of Arthur Radley being prejudged was when a boy named Jem who lived in Arthur’s town was explaining what looks like to his friend Dill, “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 blood-stained…
In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, characters commonly appear one way, but in truth are completely different people. For example, while Mrs. Dubose originally appears very cruel and mean, she is revealed to be extremely brave. Also, Mr. Cunningham appears to be very surly and angry, but he proves himself to be a righteous individual. Lastly, while Boo Radley is originally portrayed as evil and frightful, he is later shown to be a hero. Harper Lee makes characters appear one way and then act another way in order to show the discrepancy between appearance and reality.
To kill a Mockingbird The relationship between Boo radley and the children have always been a bit bizarre as it may seem. At first Jem, Scout, and Dill have their assumptions about Boo Radley, which of course none of them turn out to be correct at the end of the story. Like the famous quote says “Do not judge a book by it's cover,” in this situation Boo’s rumor’s is the book cover and the sory behind the cover is Boo’s true identity .Yet they are still attracted by the abnornal nasty rumors and gossip about Boo’s Domestic violence and the strange things he does at night. Just how Maycomb County is biased towards Tom Robinson, The kids are biased towards Boo Radley.
