Atticus is also very cautious about how he explains certain delicate topics to her, such as when she brings up the issue of rape he says that “Rape was carnal knowledge of a female by force and without consent.” (Page 149) explaining it in such a manner that she is still a bit curious as to the nature of rape yet does not inquire further and lets it go. " 'I asked him if I was a problem and he said not much of one, at most one he could always figure out, and not to worry my head a second about botherin ' him.” (Page 249)These lines show how skilled Atticus is not only in comforting his children but also in showing them how much they mean to him.

While the idea of viviparous families still makes my stomach churn, it is nothing compared to how I feel about this society.” Lenina sighs, setting her chin in her hand. “Henry left me to die at the hands of a madman,” she continues almost reflectively. “How could I live in a world where they’d leave someone to die like that while they cheered? It makes my skin crawl.”
