Cunningham. When Scout sees him in the mob in front of the town jail, she’s confused because she had been previously told that the Cunninghams are good people. However, now he wants to potentially harm someone else. Therefore, she asks her father who explains that “Mr. Cunningham was part of a mob last night, but he's still a good man” (210).
A very similar thing happens in To Kill a Mockingbird, when Bob Ewell accuses Tom Robinson of raping his daughter Mayella, but Atticus proves that it was most likely Bob who did it. Bob Ewell, Mayella’s dad, the person who should be protecting her at all costs. The most common injustice in the novel appears when the kids find the case between Tom Robinson and the Ewell family to be unfair, highly illogical, and racist. When the verdict of guilty is revealed to the town, Jem becomes upset and says, “You just can’t convict a man on evidence like that- you can’t”
In the novel it states “cecil jacobs made me forget he had announced in the schoolyard the day before that scout finch's daddy defended niggers i denied it but told jem” (lee, 74) this piece of texts shows labels affect people because labeling could be racist because the white children where labeling tom Robinson as a nigger. In the novel it also states “depends how you look at it he said what was one negro more or less among two hundred of em he wasn't tom to them he was escaping prisoner” (lee, 235) this piece of text shows labels affect people because labeling could be racist because all the townspeople thought tom robinson was guilty because he was black but if he was white he would have not been guilty. In both of these texts it shows that Since tom robinson was black he would never win the trial even tho he did nothing
In “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, Jem tries to do what is right and demonstrates that Jem is very courageous. Jem does many things to show that he is courageous. Jem loses his pants on the Radley’s fence and he tells Scout “I’m goin’ after ‘em”(Lee,56). Jem feels that it is right for him to get his pants back before Atticus realizes what he, Scout, and Dill tried to do. Earlier when Scout finished her first day and fears that school will always be just as bad as the first and “Jem assured [her] that the older [she] got the better school would be”(Lee,...).
These mocking birds are: Arthur “boo” Radley, Tom Robinson, and Atticus finch. Arthur “boo” Radley was an intelligent boy who does good deeds everywhere he went, he was polite, smart and good. But then when he was around 15 years old, he was acquainted with the Cunninghams from the north, they were like savaged animals doing things on impulse. This became an influence to Arthur, until one day they were resisting arrest from the police in the fountain square, after they were finally arrested they were brought to court which the judge sentenced them to industrial school. Industrial school wasn’t jail or shame, but for mr. Radley it was shame.
The novel To Kill a Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee explores this idea of judging others before looking at the world from their perspective. Scout and Jem, although raised in a prejudice town, learn from their father Atticus that who a person is racially, does not define them as a person. Although the children make up stories about Arthur “Boo” Radley to pass the time in part one of the novel, in part two the Tom Robinson situation widens their eyes to the biased ways of their town. In the end, Jem and Scout are rescued by Boo Radley, the very person they feared during their childhood. Mockingbirds are used as a symbol in the novel to portray the fact that innocent and caring people are sometimes the most abused.
In 1916, Lord Alfred Tennyson brought the effects of isolation to light through his poem “The Lady of Shalott.” In “Inside the Mind of School Shooters” Peter Langman brings forth how these catastrophic school shooting start by the shooter being isolated. Isolation to some is just a word, but for others it becomes the reason for reckless behavior. Isolation pushes people to the edge, making them do things hey normally wouldn’t. The isolation brings people to a care free state leaving them no worried
Huckleberry dreaded and, or, hated by mothers in the village.he misleads the boys in the village,such as in the chapter that i’m reading he and Tom are trying to steal treasure from engine joe.he is the foolish and blithe one as the story goes on. Last but not least Tom Sawyer, who once was blithe but now is starting to care for others. Tom is not as careless and foolish as he was in early chapters of the book,he is maturing as i get further into the the book. An example of this is when Becky rips the teacher’s book for the next class, but does not let get in trouble for it. Instead he tke blame for what Becky has done, he told a lie to the class.
Tom was charged with the rape of a local young girl, Mayella Ewell. Although he did not commit the crime, the town’s racist mindset led them to side with the guilty party, Bob Ewell. Tom Robinson was shot and killed, so in a sense, Maycomb County killed a mockingbird. The second is Boo Radley, a mysterious man that never shows his face, causing him to fall victim to the imaginations of Maycomb residents, especially those of children like Jem and Scout. Although Jem and Scout have their theories and alleged stories about Boo, he ends up saving their lives in a plot twist.
Even though she doesn’t necessarily understand it, she later learns that she shouldn’t judge people so quickly, and applies it when she meets a new person. Moreover, Scout learns that is very important that she shouldn’t judge people too quickly, when she meets Boo Radley. Before she met him, Scout believed all the rumors that people said about them. “Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall...hands were bloodstained…long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten…” (Lee 14) these rumors led to her thinking Boo was a monster. However, at the end of the book when Scout meets Boo, he is nothing like the character she was led to believe.
In the novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Atticus Finch is a well reserved, honored, and honest man ;by contrast, Bob Ewell is a racist, cantankerous, and evil man. Atticus Finch once said, “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.” At the beginning of the scene, both Scout and Jem are walking to the school; Scout is playing the ham in her school’s Halloween pageant.While walking to the school pageant, Scout and Jem are startled by their fellow friend known as Cecil Jacobs;however, this only foreshadows the following events of the chapter. Bob Ewell wishes to gain revenge upon Atticus Finch, for he was the man that exposed his devious plans he had with taking advantage
In To Kill A Mockingbird, the lesson of Atticus showing Scout that lying is alright sometimes is better shown in the novel rather, than the movie. The novel does a better job at executing the lesson because, the book allows for the reader to get on a personal level with the decisions that Atticus is making. Atticus is talking to Mr.Tate of the porch and says “Heck, If this thing’s hushed up it’ll be a simple denial to Jem of the way I’ve tried to raise him”(Lee 272). This is just a small excerpt from the books long conversation. The movie only allows the viewer to watch what is happening, while not as thorough.
