After the killers told mAcbeth that they had killed Banquo, he states,¨'Tis better thee without than he within. Is he dispatched?¨ (III.iv.15). This quote reveals that he was cruel because we see Banquo as an honorable man and even Macbeth's best friend. The fact that Macbeth had Banquo killed just because he was suspicious tells the reader that Macbeth Is cruel. Also, another example of Macbeth being cruel s when he snt the murders to kill macduff's family.
The main goal of these individuals is to strive to help others in any way that they can. They have no interest in harming anyone or anything and only want to affect people in a positive manner. This book contains numerous people who can be referred to as mockingbirds, but two in particular stood out the greatest to me, Boo Radley and Tom Robinson. Boo Radley is an innocent man who always stays in the privacy of his home. As a child, he was confined in his house by his brother and father due to a mishap with the law.
Atticus has a very strong argument that Tom Robinson was innocent and that he was actually a good person on the inside who would never hurt a fly. My other text I will be covering is the nest as there is a character in it named Paul and his friend Jimmy wants to go on a hike with Paul but Jimmy’s parents don’t want him to go on the hike as there is many bad rumors about him considering the fact that he was sent to reform school for doing one bad
Children have absolutely nothing to worry about since they are just kids there are naturally innocent. Once they see the cruel and unreasonable world, they learn about sympathy and lose their innocence. In “To kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, sympathy is a significant example Scout and Jem learn about sympathy at the same time losing their innocence. Throughout the novel, Jem learns to be sympathetic to others such as when he realizes that Boo Radley has problems. Right away Scout, Jem, and Dill had made up this amusement game which they used to torment Boo, at the same time atticus discovered out and advised them to be sympathetic towards Boo.

As seen at the beginning of the novel, Johnny is the boy from the wrong side of the track, and while the story unrolls, Johnny starts to become a hero. Johnny's selfless action of saving kids from a fire and not regretting his choice makes him a hero. The second quality that makes Johnny a hero is his empathy towards others and his actions. At the beginning of the novel, Johnny was known as the "lost puppy." He was never one to think the best of himself, he was humble and shy.
One response, from the newspaper writer/editor, Mr. Underwood, highlights what some of the few progressive residents stand for, all with some underlying symbolism. “He likened Tom’s death to the senseless slaughter of songbirds by hunters and children” (Lee 323). In this quote readers see how Lee uses a very minor character, who is white, to represent the feelings of some of Maycomb’s residents.

Additionally, one can assume that Mr. Underwood likens Tom’s death to the death of a mockingbird (a songbird) as it is stated earlier in the book, by Ms. Maudie, that “ …’they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us.

All in all, George’s decision to kill Lennie was justified by the fact that George was Lennie’s keeper, there was no possible way to save Lennie, and he didn’t want Lennie’s death to be slow and
Despite whatever hesitations he may have had, he followed through with his plan to end his life. The guilt of committing this murder sets in for Macbeth almost immediately. When asked to return to the scene of the crime with Lady Macbeth, Macbeth says “I’ll go no more: I am afraid to think what I have done; Look on’t again I dare not” (II, ii, 65-67). From the time Macbeth commits this first murder, despite the guilt that he had felt, the amount of his vicious acts quickly escalate.
