He or she finds what they hold to be true and what he or she find to be false. He or she also finds a sense of right and wrong. Many individuals have conflicting morals with another individual. When one understands the other’s morals and respects them, they show maturity. If one doesn’t understand and respect the other’s morals, they present their immaturity.
A young lady committed a crime; a victim was involved. Her father witnessed the unspeakable act, and punished her to teach a lesson of consequences. The father realized the casualty would make his daughter’s shameful ways known to the community. In an attempt to save her from her sins, he found a different story. One where the victim was the real offender, because his daughter was innocent. This is an event that took place in Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. It may not seem familiar, because it’s placed at a distinct angle, Bob Ewell’s. He pointed the blame in a different direction, and the innocent Tom Robinson, was found guilty. The community lost the little respect they had for Tom and didn’t give him a chance, simply because they refused
Maturity is a moment in time when someone becomes the expected respectful, adult and although, it isn’t asynchronous eventually it comes. In Black Boy, Richard Wright took a while to mature, but once he, did he acknowledged his wrongs and focused on his future. Richard Wright was a young boy from the state of Mississippi never hesitating to show his curiosity and disapproval. From his mischievous reflexes of fighting to his growth in maturity and becoming a better person, Richard had thrived to protect and take care of his family.
Innocence is a word used to describe someone 's purity. Children are prime examples of innocence, as they don’t have judgments and don’t understand mature topics. In the novel, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, the reader can interpret innocence as the growing up of the children. Specifically, Jem Finch showed a loss of innocence as he grew up. He showed his loss of innocence by not playing games, his more mature use of words and body language, and his different view of the world around him. In the novel, To Kill A Mockingbird, Jem Finch goes through change and his innocence of the world is lost as the book progresses.
Dill I was hiding under Scout’s bed and waiting for them to come home. I ran away from home because i was feeling like my mother and “New father” aren’t paying attention to me They just recently got together and are always together and are never just spending time with me. Since they aren’t paying attention to me it seems like they wouldn’t notice if i left them be alone. So i took the train from Meridian to Maycomb Junction, fourteen miles away, and covered the remaining distance on foot and on the back of a wagon.
Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird shows how Jem, Scout and Boo overcome their loss of innocence and overcome the struggles that Maycomb county and its people throw at them.
During a battle, accusing a black man for a crime they did not commit is racism and using a weapon not for an abdominal thing but protecting the ones you care for. "Tomi, did you take Mayella Ewell... Tom Robinson 's manners were as good as Atticus" (Lee194-195). This quote shows Tom 's innocence of Mayella 's rape after accusing him for raping her. This also shows that Tom is innocent because if he was guilty he would have gotten defensive but he remained calm during the trial. "Bob Ewell fell on his knife" (Lee 274). Mr. Tate insists that Bob Ewell killed himself, even if it was a lie in order to protect Boo Radley. Boo Radley killed Bob Ewell as self-defense to protect Jem and Scout from getting killed. Therefore, battles and weapons can
People have this belief that maturity is based on the age. However, I conclude that maturity comes from a person’s proficiency. A person can gain the maturity by their lack of intelligence. For example, in the book, “The glass castle”, the author introduced us the character of Jeannette.
When one grows up, it is inevitable they will lose their innocence. Seeing the world through rose colored glasses can only take one so far, and eventually they will have to open their eyes to real issues in their lives. While this happens at different ages for everyone, Atticus in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee believes that his kids should not be sheltered from the real world. As Scout and Jem, Atticus’ children, grow up, especially in a time where Maycomb is so segregated, Atticus teaches his kids real life lessons and to not become like the rest of their town; racist and judgemental. This comes with a cost, however, as the kids “grow up” at an expedited rate. Throughout the novel, Jem and Scout learn valuable life lessons
These emotions began to impact him a lot, because of his family that didn’t care about him and he felt emtheticness from it. The trail was a big part for Dill. " I know all that, Scout. It was the way he said it made me sick,"(Lee, Pg 99) Dill said. This affection began to shape Dill to the person
“I’ve always been fascinated with the stealing of innocence. It’s the most heinous crime, and certainly a capital crime if there ever was one.”(Clint Eastwood) In the book, To Kill a Mockingbird, this quote reigns true for many reasons. The book starts as a family and friend oriented community, but its true colors show when Atticus Finch takes on a black mans trial. Tempers flare throughout the county and many people end up getting hurt; physically or emotionally. This only proves that the spread of evilness can diminish any bit of innocence left in a persons mind. In TKAM, this is expressed when Jem felt sick to his stomach as he heard the guilty verdict. Also, when Scout couldn’t understand why Miss Caroline would request her to stop learning out of school. Another incident occurred when Dill ran out of the courthouse, crying in shock. Overall, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee is a novel that does a good job of showing how innocence can be destroyed by the display of evil.
To kill a mockingbird is to destroy innocence. Mockingbirds do not cause harm or trouble; in fact their only purpose is to convince others with beautiful music. Tom Robinson’s death can easily be compared to that of a mockingbird; it did no good but also prevented no evil.
Dill is a smart boy who visits Maycomb every summer from Meridian, Mississippi, which he stays up there with his aunt Rachel. Dill is Scouts and Jem closest friend and is pretty much family to them. Dill is connected by isolation and loneliness is by when he runs away from his parents. Dill runs away from home because his parents didn't involve him anything spend time or show they loved him. Dill runs away to Atticus house.
Maturity is the “full development” of an individual, but what does this mean? People have often thought that it just comes naturally over time. Maturity is the ability of a person to act responsible, making the most out of their current circumstances. Some people never reach the state of maturity, while other obtain it at a very young age. In this sense, maturity cannot be given to someone, but must be earned by themselves.
The Mockingbird Spirit of Innocence How do you define innocence? Is there someone out in the world who is purely innocent? To understand innocence you should look at what a mockingbird does, because all they do is sing. In Harper Lee’s classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus and Miss Maudie teach Scout and Jem that it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.
