They are told that the person that lives there is named boo radley and that he an evil monster who has been locked up in his house for the rest of his life because he stabbed his father with scissors when he was young. “Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that 's why his hands were bloodstained” (Lee 65). This quote shows the way the people of the village looked at Boo Radley even though they have not actually seen it for themselves. Throughout the story, there are not many people who have encounters with Boo Radley. However almost everyday Jem finds toys or random objects in the tree out front of the Radleys house.
The other problem Ponyboy solved it really well was that he decided to save the kids that were trapped in the church considering he might ignite the fire. However, Ponyboy did make bad decisions too. He decided to smoke addictively and helped Johnny to escape from the cops which could cost him incarceration. The best thing he could do when that happened was to call the cops so that Johnny won’t be a felon and the judge might gave him less punishment. In conclusion, The Outsiders let us realize that no matter whom you are, your life can still end

Because of their nosiness, Jem, Scout, and Dill try to drag Boo out his house and to the outside world.

Labels can be used positively or negatively. Even though some may say labels are normal, common labels that affect people in the town of Maycomb (the setting of TKAM) by Hurting them, Angering them and Negativity. Labels affect people by hurting them. The first example of hurt is when everyone thought Boo Radley was a bad guy and everyone did not like him or want to see him or talk to him. “Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch... his hands were bloodstained ...There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled
Heck then says the Bob fell on his knife because “to my way of thinkin’, Mr. Finch, taking the one man who’s done you and this town a great service an’ draggin’ him with his shy ways into the limelight--to me, that’s a sin”(370). Heck Tate is saying that if Atticus goes ahead and tells the town that Boo Radley saved his kids, then everyone will want to reward him for saving children, and with Boo being so shy, it would be a sin to do it. Then Scout tells Atticus that telling everyone would be like killing a Mockingbird. Scout looks from Boo’s point from view by seeing why Heck doesn’t want him getting gifts and being called a
Georgie Milton did something not many people have the guts to do, he took the life of his best friend to save him from the torture that awaited him, but, he took the life of another man and he took this life with the intention of murder. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, there is no difference between euthanasia and murder; and to this indictment, George Milton has pleaded not guilty. If I am to prove him otherwise, you must find him so. Lennie Small has been described to us as a caring giant. He had no bad intentions; and it is fair to say that our witnesses have provided us with sufficient evidence to support my argument.
Honorable Last Actions In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, John Proctor is portrayed as a sinful, yet appreciated man who died a moral but undeserving death. During the Salem Witch Hunt, many innocent people lost their lives. Like others, John chose death over living a life that was deceitful. John Proctor’s last actions were noble and an act of righteousness. Along with his land and his family, Proctor valued his name as most do.
Before he went inside the house, he stopped in the front of Boo Radley. ‘Thank you for my children, Arthur,” he said.” (This shows that) Boo Radley saved Scout and Jem. (This also shows that) Boo’s reputation to Scout and Jem of being bad and violent was changed into a metaphorical mockingbird because they had bothered him when he didn’t do anything to deserve it and he gave them a gift of saving
In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, there are many valuable lessons to learn about making assumptions. Assumptions occur many times throughout this book from many different people. Assumptions are claims made about something or someone that have no proof. One major assumption in this novel is about Arthur “Boo” Radley. Scout explains, “Jem gave a reasonable description of Boo: Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained—if you ate an animal raw, you could never wash the blood off.
In To Kill a Mockingbird, Jem and Scout are siblings and their father, Atticus is a lawyer. They live in Maycomb which is a fairly small and close-knit community, everyone knows everyone. The Radley house is a major part of the book. The Radley house is very odd and to everyone else is scary and off limits. Throughout the story Jem and Scout, with their friend Dill, try to get Boo out of the house.
For each killer, they all have uniquely different stories, so my personal goal was to find someone I have never heard with an “off the wall” story. As I came across the name of Albert Fish and briefly skimmed material it was without a doubt horrific to imagine. It was incredibly disturbing to me to discover in reading, not only were his targets children, but that fact that he mailed each victim’s parent(s) a letter detailing their murder. For many years the boogeyman may have been some tall-tale story haunting the lives of children as they lay wide away in bed at night in fear of shutting his or her eyes. When in reality, Hamilton Howard “Albert” Fish was a living nightmare literally feasting on the soles of innocent
At the beginning of the book, Jem and scout saw Boo as the “malevolent phantom”(Lee,10) who lived inside the Radley house, the man who peeked through your windows late at night, dined on raw squirrels, and pierced his father’s leg with a pair of scissors. However, throughout the book the children start to realize that Boo is the furthest thing from a monster. Throughout the story the children are curious as to why Boo Radley never comes outside, a few times they try to get him to come outside. After a long conversation about Aunt Alexandra and her strange dislike for certain social classes, using their childish innocence, Jem and Scout start to see the strangeness and ambiguity in the social behavior of humankind. Jem claims that “[He is] beginning to understand why Boo Radley stayed shut up in the house all this time... it’s because he wants to stay inside”(Lee,304).
Boo had courage leaving his house, which he had been locked up in for a very long time, to help Jem and Scout and finally reveal himself to them.“His lips parted into a timid smile, and our neighbor’s image blurred with my sudden tears. Hey, Boo,” I said. (270) Another act of heroism is Mr.Avery going into Mrs. Maudie’s burning house. Mr. Avery has the willingness to help others because he goes to the upstairs of Mrs. Maudie’s house alone, and he tries to save more of her most valuable belongings. Then he gets stuck at the window and almost can’t get out, but then he goes down the porch pillar into shrubbery and is safe.
