The second time Boo leaves his house is to save Scout and Jem from getting attacked by Mr.Euwell. “He was still leaning against the wall… His hair was dead and thin almost featherly on top of his head.” (p.363) We know that Boo doesn’t
. it’s because he wants to stay inside.” (304) Jem realizes that with all the hate in the world Boo probably stays inside to avoid all of that and just wants some peace. At this point the readers view on Boo Radley has change from a psychopathic mad man to a kind boy who secretly cares for Jem and Scout. The next and final change in the readers view of Boo happen when he finally come outside of his house and openly meet the children for the first time in the story. This happens at the very end of the book when Jem and Scout are walking back for a school play and are attacked by Bob Ewell.
Although, towards the end of the book Jem speaks to Scout about Boo Radley. Jem says "I think I'm beginning to understand why Boo Radley's stayed shut up in the house all this time...it's because he wants to stay inside" (Lee 139). The quote exemplifies the fact that Boo Radley is a social outcast in Maycomb. Coupled with, the fact that he is a Mockingbird. However, he is a social outcast because he is a mockingbird.
Darry and Ponyboy have flaws in their relationship, because they don’t understand each other. The greasers and socs are always creating conflict with each other, just because they’re not in the same group/class. Finally people don’t know when to stop, and this is mostly because of greasers v. socs. All of these reasons are why divided communities is the most critical theme. If there wasn’t divided communities in this book, Johnny never would have killed Bob, the brawl never would have happened, Dally most likely never would have robbed the store, and much more.
“Scout, Im beginning to understand something. I think I’m beginning to understand why Boo Radley’s stayed shut up in the house all this time… it’s because he wants to stay inside” (Lee
FEAR CAN KEEP ONE PRISONER TO ONE’S OWN MALICIOUS THOUGHTS. Roderick Usher tells the narrator he blames his house for his discomposure. This very superstition is what keeps him from leaving what he fears, as is noted by the narrator on page 10 when he says “He [Usher] was enchained by certain superstitious impressions in regard to the dwelling which he tenanted, and whence, for many years, he had never ventured forth--in regard to an influence . . .
These are the three main characters in the book that had their appearances misunderstood. Boo Radley is constantly assumed of being a horrible person. There are many rumors that spread around the town. A rumor about Boo Radley started and spread quick, ¨...Boo drove the scissors into his parents leg…,¨ as he was sitting in his house cutting up newspaper for his book (Lee 13). Boo never goes outside so no one has ever spoken to him, no one knows if this actually happened.
Moreover, Boo by nature is shy not leaving his house often not only this, but he is also according to Jem hiding from the racism and the discrimination. “...Scout, I think i’m beginning to understand something. I think I’m beginning to understand why Boo Radley’s stayed shut up in the house all this time. . .
In the story People look at George and Lennie as weird and strange because they looked out for each other. This was uncommon for two men to do during the great depression especially since Lennie was mentally unstable and George had no relation with him. In those times people like lennie were not common and many people looked at him as a freak, but only because they did’nt take the time to get to know him and realize that he was just a little different. Society often misunderstands situations because everyone always jumps to conclusions, for instance in the beginning of the story Lennie reaches out to touch a woman's dress, when she screamed it scared Lennie so by instinct he squeezed. By doing this Lennie also scared the woman, when George got Lennie to let go of the dress the woman ran to town and told everyone he tried to rape her, because of this Lennie and George had to flee the town and search for a new
People were at the point of not even believing Moshie. He would say things, beautiful things but the prisoners refused to listen. “ But people not only refused to believe his tales, they refused to listen” (Wiesel 7). You can just imagine how bad peoples minds were. Being a prisoner was just so horrible that not even a simple story could be heard.
