This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
In his eyes, Perry sees this as betrayal and may be a large part of the reason he detest her. Capote uses this lyric because it foreshadows the death of Perry. Otto and Perry conclude the song by asking “won’t you give me flowers while I’m living” (Capote 117). This lyric is essential because the “lilies” and the “flowers” symbolize mercy. He is pleading with the world to give him mercy while he is alive, not after he is dead.

She is also upset because Walter is giving in to racial tension and calling Mr. Lindner back to negotiate taking money in exchange for not moving into the white neighborhood. Lena immediately snaps back and calls out Beneatha for not learning to care for her brother. In this scene Lena’s maternal instinct really shines through. Even though she is disappointed in Walters foolishness and lack of pride, she knows that Walter is at his lowest point and that persecution and ridicule will not help the situation in any way. She also understands that his pursuit of money wasn't for self interest but to make things better for the whole family.
Later, May Belle came to Jesse crying that he had to beat Janice Avery up, but he was very reluctant. But then Leslie spoke up and said that they would find out a way to pay Janice Avery back. They later wrote a letter that was from “Willard Hughes,” Janice Avery’s crush, persuading her to tell many people that he liked her and also managing to get her to miss her bus. The kind of courage exhibited most in this act of courage was social/moral. This moment of courage mattered because it taught Jesse to stand up for the ones he loved.
On the other hand, Katniss is suspicious of his behavior, and believes he is just pretending to be nice, but she realizes that he is just being himself. She states in the book, “Peeta Mellark, on the other hand, has obviously been crying and interestingly enough does not seem to be trying to cover it up. I immediately wonder if this will be his strategy in the Games. To appear weak and frightened, to reassure the other tributes that he is no competition at all, and then come out fighting.” (Collins, 2008, p.49)

Although Elizabeth was not the best wife at some moments, she loved her husband so much that she lied for him. When questioned by Danforth if Proctor committed lechery she said faintly “No, sir” (Miller 113). Elizabeth lies for the first time to save her husband because she is loving and cares about him.

Even though this may seem reckless and out of resentment, it really was to support his father and his views after Mrs. Dubose made fun of Atticus in front of Jem: “Not only a Finch waiting tables but one in the courthouse lawing for niggers!” (Lee 135) This quote causes Jem’s fit of wrath and also gets him in trouble with his father and results in him having to read to Mrs. Dubose as punishment. Ironically, however, Atticus tells Jem that regardless of what Mrs. Dubose said about him that she was the bravest woman he knew: “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.
