However I have found it. The theme of the story, To Kill a Mockingbird, is to always be courageous, no matter what. Examples of courage show up all throughout the novel. From Atticus, to Jem, to Dill, and to Mrs. Dubose they all show courage. Whether they are reading to Mrs. Dubose or running up and touching the Radley house they are all courageous characters.
While reading To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, I found that all the characters fit into different archetypes. Characters whose archetypes stood out the most is Atticus, who is the warrior or protector. Miss Maudie stood out as the earth mother and Bob Ewell is the sadist. Atticus is the warrior or protector. In the book Atticus always did the right thing.
To Kill a Mocking Mockingbird has many great characters, but my all time favorite character is Calpurnia. She is a great character who has an important role. She has deep ties in the community, and she has some very good moments in the story that make me love her even more. She is such a different character that I just had to choose her. In the novel, Calpurnia is described as “...All angles and bones”(Lee 6).
It is very well written and one of the most entertaining history books. Among its many chapters, characters, and historically accurate events, is a story any person could get addicted to. Its only true flaw is whether or not the authors are a reliable source when it comes to the events that take place. It is recommended to give a read if a person is into historical events. A book following the life of one of America’s most beloved presidents in his final days is something everyone should
The Admirable Traits of John Proctor Who is the most admirable OR despicable character in the plan, and why? What is the larger theme and message that Miller sends through the character? I believe that John Proctor is the most admirable character above everyone else, in The Crucible, by Arthur Miller. I believe this because John is honest, hardworking, and he loves his wife, who is in peril of being falsely charged with witchcraft. John Proctor is a farmer that lives outside of Salem, and his wife is Elizabeth (Miller, 20).
Aunt Alexandra expects Scout to fit into the role of a woman, even at such a young age. Another example of the harsh standards placed on Scout is shown when Alexandra is having tea with her friends in chapter 24. Miss Stephanie says, “well, you won’t get very far until you start wearing dresses more often”
Aunt Alexandra shows care for her niece and nephew because she worries where the children have gone. She nearly faints when Calpurnia finds Jem and Scout at the trial. “I didn’t think it wise in the first place to let them (go),” Aunt Alexandra utters bitterly to Atticus when he returns home from the trial. One of Alexandra’s main goals as mother is to keep Jem and Scout innocent from their society as they grow up. According to Aunt Alexandra, adolescents do not need to listen to racist remarks and talk about rape.
In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Atticus allows Scout to be herself because Atticus realises that at this age, Scout becomes more of a tomboy. Despite other ladies picking on Scout to be more “ladylike”, Scout simply ignores their requests. Although Atticus listens to Aunt Alexandra’s nagging of making Scout more “ladylike” and getting her to “wear a dress”, Atticus does not do anything about it to solve it. Atticus does not care about how Scout looks. So, if Scout is concerned about wearing a dress, Atticus will not bother about it because it is up to her whether she wants to wear a dress or not.
An Admirable Character Indeed, in the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by, Harper Lee, there are various characters that could be considered the best. Harper Lee does such a fantastic job at portraying each character in the novel sometimes, as readers, the characters are as real as the people whom are living every day. Each character in the novel is so vividly developed as a real person that real emotions sprout for the characters, and lead to picturing what these fictional characters would be like in the real world. Consequently, many could contradict that certain qualities of these characters can make them the very best; whether it is how confident, humble, strong, or talented a character is. Everyone has their own unique opinion on what can
