Jem also describes him as a horrific scary monster, but these are only based on facts that Stephanie Crawford has told them and the town. Jem and Scout are curious with these tales as they try to get Boo out of house, so they can see how he looks like.
“mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy” (Lee 93). One of the examples of good vs evil in this story is Tom Robinson’s court case with Mayella Ewell. Tom Robinson is a black man named who is accused for a crime of raping and beating Mayella Ewell even though he just helped her with household chores. In the book Tom was seen as a bad figure for most of the book even though he was just a caring, harmless person. You can say many mockingbirds die in today’s reality, but it is the innocent that suffer the most often.
Character Traits of Juror 8 The play Twelve Angry Men demonstrates the significance of identifying character traits in order to better understand a character’s motivations. A character who is like me is juror 8 because he shows he cares by standing up for the boy on trial. For example, he said “Ever since he was five years old his father beat him up regularly” (Rose 17). I display this characteristic by caring for others when they need someone to help them or be with them. Confidence is another characteristic juror 8 displays because he was the only juror to vote not guilty knowing he was going to get bad feedback from the rest jurors.
To Kill a Mockingbird: The Physical Effects Of Prejudice The consequences of prejudice can be to the biggest or to the smallest extent as seen in the classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. Although prejudice effects all people differently, the characters throughout the novel experience the uniting commonality of being considered outcasts in their society. This is depicted through Harper’s writing when Dolphus Raymond is victimized due to his actions, Boo Radley’s reputation becomes forever tarnished and Atticus is besmirched by the citizens of Maycomb. Dolphus Raymond is a victim to prejudice because of his actions, it leads him to an inevitable fate. Mr.Raymond is a wealthy man who chooses to associate with the coloured society, hence why he faces prejudice.
As a result, members of their community, specifically an elderly woman named Mrs. Dubose, become angry at Atticus, and Bob Ewell even tries to murder Atticus’s children. Fortunately, Boo Radley, the town’s social outcast, jumps to the children’s rescue and kills Bob Ewell. Eventually, Scout was able to learn from her tragic experiences with the help of Atticus’s teachings. Using life lessons, Atticus aims to inculcate morals and principles throughout Scout and Jem’s lives. Atticus persistently implants the concept to Jem and Scout that it is cruel to harm an innocent being.
The monster’s appearance also made many people assume that the monster would behave ruthlessly and immorally. For example, when the monster saved the little girl from drowning he was treated as a villain because of its frightful appearance. Shelley brings up the idea of people judging each other by the first impression. During the time the book was written and today there has not been much change because we still judge each other based on looks. Many immigrants are seen as horrible because of their outer appearance or what they have heard about them.
Mr. Atticus Finch has been proven multiple times in the story that he is a good hearted gentleman that only wishes to do the right thing. One instance is just the simple fact that he defended Tom Robinson to his best ability when the whole caucasian community in Maycomb County wanted him locked up for his alleged raping of Mayella Ewell. "You aren 't really a nigger-lover, then, are you?" "I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody...
As well as Tom Robinson 's unfair treatment because of the immense racism occuring at the time period and segregation still happening, there was a biased opinion towards white people and whatever they claimed, even if the claims were false. To Kill a Mockingbird” had a really big impact with the lens of African American criticism, because of Tom Robinson 's very unfair and unjustified death, even though Atticus did everything in his power, which was a lot with that incredible speech he made and proving that Tom did no such thing, he was actually a very nice young man of twenty five, was prosecuted anyhow, it impacted many people including Atticus and his children and the town i would say. This book had a major impact in many ways, and in very important way it made the audience think and reflect and have that piece of literature forever held in their hearts and maybe it left them better people or made someone discover something they didn’t know they were looking for. This book constructed a whole world a made a big revelation and engraved its roots of change for the world to see and read and
Mayella’s father Bob ewell saw her seducing to the black guy so he hit her madly and turned Tom robinson nobility his life onto death. Bob ewell was the most evil person in the novel that tried to kidnap scout and jem after a hallowen party but boo radely saved them .He was a liar because he forced his daughter to commit a false testimony against tom Robison and he was a racist because he hated nigros that considered them as a second class. Harper lee’s language contains a lot of imagery and sensory language and the dialogue in the novel was written in a slang style to show each character’s identity. There is a difference in language used by the white and the black. Bob ewell used foul and harsh language which showed his poor class.
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. 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 most of
Atticus alludes the jury to two of the most famous men in the era. When Atticus is saying this to the jury and everyone else he is saying that not everyone will play the role that they are given. Just because Tom Robinson is African-American doesn’t mean that he is bad and will do unlawful things. Another example of allusion is when Atticus is asking Mayella about what Tom Robinson did to her. He says, “It 's not an easy question Miss Mayella, so I 'll try again.
Everyone questioned everything Atticus had to support Toms innocents. He started to get frustrated about everyone getting mad at him for trying to help a black man and defending him. Tom was very grateful for all the hard work Atticus has done for him in the court. Even though they haven 't won the case yet Tom still
He also "...did see a black thing Jump into the window and came & stood Just before my face, upon the bar the body of itt looked like a Munky only the feete ware like a Cocks feete w 'th Claws and the face somewhat more like a mans than a Munkies," which threatened him as well. The accused were also known to cause the death and sickness of children during the epidemic outbreak of allegations. In particular, we make take the case of Samuel Gray who stated "the child that before was a very Likely thriveing Child #[before] did pine away and was never well, althow it Lived some moneths after, yet in a sad Condition and soe dye,"(Bridget Bishop,TSB-4,9)the reason being it was an aftermath of Bishop 's presence
The man ran because he believed that the monster was about to hurt him, from the monster 's gruesome appearance, the man automatically assumed the monster was evil. Again because of his appearance, in which Victor created him with, many people often created similar reactions to that of this man.For example, the villagers would throw rocks at the monster to make him leave. This reaction made the monster feel even more terrible. First impressions are still a great part of society as well as the instant judgment on someone. Another example in todays society, someone could be driving around town and see an African-American male in a fancy care, the first thing that they could think of is that this man has stole someone 's car.This is an example of a common stereotype.
