In Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird the theme is to be careful who you trust. Just because you let someone in your house doesn’t mean you should trust them. While Aunt Alexandra 's missionary circle was over, Mrs. Farrow started speaking about an unknown man stirring up the town. The man was Atticus and she was bad talking him in his own house with Scout, Calpurnia, and Aunt Alexandria there. “I tell you there are some misguided people in this town.
Then they try and tell others about the ghost, or they try to find out where it came from. South High School was built on top of Navajo burial grounds.

Secondly, Boo stabbed his family member in the leg. The town wanted him in an asylum. The public considers him intellectually afflicted. Finally, I expect the children of the town will not meet Boo Radley because his family is genuinely antisocial. The Radley family goes outside only at dusk to get groceries and things for his family.
An example of this is Arthur “Boo” Radley, a recluse, who is rarely seen outside since his childhood. Rumors flew about him among the town’s children. In the beginning of the novel, Scout explains the various superstitions associated with him: on dark nights, he peeped through people’s windows, flowers froze because he had breathed on them, and fruits and nuts that came from trees near the Radley house were poisonous. These notions cause Radley to be seen as a sort of phantom or ghost in Scout’s mind, similar to the Boogeyman. Scout eventually discovers that Radley’s behavior was not of his own volition, but rather due to a cruel and abusive father, and learns to see things from his perspective.
In many circumstances, we tend to prematurely decide, for ourselves, the details of people’s lives. As found in this excerpt from the story, To Kill a Mockingbird, Scout makes the journey to decipher her mislead beliefs about the Ewell family with the help of her father, Atticus. He helps her understand: why they don’t go to school, hunt out of season, and overall are excused by the township. Scout first questions the necessity of her going to school while the Ewells only come for as long as they wish. Sighting Scout’s disdain for a perceived injustice, Atticus decides to illustrate exactly who the Ewells are: “They were people, but they lived like animals.” Atticus expands by reminding her of the annual Christmas trip, which takes her right past their residence.
In addition , the movie was not able to depict a mother figure in Scout and Jem’s life like how Aunt Alexandra was in the novel. Due to the movie missing Alexandra, the audience lost many important lessons that deepen the story. To Kill a Mockingbird is a indubitable informative book that teaches both the characters and the reader lessons. The book and movie have many differences that changed the overall picture for each one. Some major differences between the two are the siblings visiting the black church, Cecil Jacobs scaring them in the forest, and Aunt Alexandra existing.
