This person is named Boo Radley. Boo Radley never came outside of his house after stabbing someone with scissors. Therefore, people didn’t really know much about him besides that one incident. The people in Maycomb only knew of this one incident and so they believed that he must be a bad person.
Joshua Jacobs English 1 PAP- First Period 20 October 2017 Mr. Palkovics Scout’s Little Lesson Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Empathy has many benefits including stronger connections with other people, it is therapeutic and it builds trust in your relationships. Learning to be empathetic and considering of other people's opinions is one of the main themes in To Kill A Mockingbird. As the characters grow throughout the novel, they begin understanding what it truly means to be empathetic and begin implementing this trait into their lives. “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view - until you climb into his skin and walk around in it”
As said in the book “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” (Lee 85-87) Ultimately Atticus has a lot of passion in his heart to deal with the people he does everyday and be able to stand up to those who don’t agree with his beliefs. A final example of how Atticus is able to show courage through others is through the Cunningham’s. Atticus is able to compromise with Mr.Cunningham and help him out in exchange for something they are able to repay him
There are many rumors that spread around the town. A rumor about Boo Radley started and spread quick, ¨... Boo drove the scissors into his parents leg…,¨ as he was sitting in his house cutting up newspaper for his book (Lee 13). Boo never goes outside so no one has ever spoken to him, no one knows if this actually happened. They also assume Boo is not the greatest person because, ¨… darkened to the color of the slate-gray yard around it.
When looking for the main character in a book, it can be arduous. You want the character who has made a substantial impact, teaches people the truly valuable lessons, and is often in crucial parts of the book. While reading To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee you may assume that Scout or Jem or even Boo Radley is the main character, but it is Atticus Finch. To Kill a Mockingbird is Atticus’ story because he is a part of the key moments, he teaches his children and his community the most essential lessons, and he is considerate to everyone and anyone in strenuous times.
She doesn’t know how to see the harm in what she does, and in the book it said, “Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed,” (page 323). Mayella destroyed one of the only things she cared about, and that’s because she didn’t learn the value of the truth. Mayella Ewell’s life is made up of many lousy things which all come together and shape her as the erroneous girl that she is. She is uneducated, has no values, and because of this, doesn’t deserve to be treated with equality. All of these things are part of the themes that make up the book, To Kill a Mockingbird, and
Atticus is a morally upright person who teaches his kids a number of important life lessons and leads by example. In Chapter 3, of To Kill A Mockingbird Atticus shows an interest in Scouts feelings as he is quick to notice that something is bothering her. Scout tells Atticus of her rough first day at school and teaches her an important lesson. Atticus says, “if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you 'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks.
First, Lee introduces Burris Ewell in Scout’s first grade class. He is not taken care of and is not even able to spell his own name. Lee uses the narration by Scout and direct description, “The cootie’s host showed not the faintest interest in the furor he had wrought. He searched the scalp above his forehead, located his guest and pinched it between his thumb and forefinger.”
Huck later writes to Mary Jane explaining all that has happened, and even giving her the money back. This last moral issue Huck experiences is important because he know longer is wanting to do the right thing for just his friends, but even random strangers that he doesn't know very well. All together, Huckleberry Finn fights what society has taught him and has morals stronger than anyone whoever raised him. Mark Twain added significant literary devices into Huck’s story to show the progression of Huck’s growth throughout all of his adventures. From learning to have a real friendship with a slave, to showing random strangers kindness, Huck ends up proving that he is a good person.
For instance, Boo Radley, a young man in Maycomb society is considered to be dead due to his introvert nature. As the author quoted, “no, it was not that sort of thing that there were other ways of making people turn into ghosts.” (Lee 14). The Radleys are one of the oldest families in Maycomb but still they do not have any contact with their neighbors. Their son, Boo is believed to be turned into a phantom since nobody ever sees him walking out of his house or interacting with people.
Atticus Finch shows many ways of wisdom throughout the novel. He tells Scout to respect Boo Radley and to understand the fact that their might be reason why Boo always stays at home. Atticus states in the novel, “You never truly understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-until you climb into his skin and walk around it” (Lee, 39). This evidence supports why Atticus is a wise individual who always tries to see things from other people’s point of view.
To Kill a Mockingbird: In To Kill a Mockingbird there are plenty of lessons that you learn reading the book. The one I am going to talk to about is always being nice by seeing things from other’s point of view. There is a quote from the book “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view- until you climb into his skin and walk around in it”. This quote is saying be nice to everyone, because you don’t know what they’re going through. The quote was from Atticus.

“Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first knew it.” Harper Lee had used the tragic situation of Tom Robinsons trial to explore many themes including, racism and differences in privilege. “To kill a mockingbird” written by Harper Lee explores many situations linked to the broad idea of racism throughout the systems of Maycomb and differences in privilege in many different ways. The quote that Atticus argues with explains that in Maycomb, all men and things are equal.
In the story, Maycomb County has many different social classes and depending on someone’s social status, they are treated and looked upon, a certain way. For example, two poor families, the Cunninghams and the Ewells, are discriminated against because of their lower status in society. For instance, after Scout beats up Walter Cunningham for getting her whipped, Jem invites Walter over for lunch. When Scout, Jem, and Walter reach the Finch's front steps, Walter, in Scout’s eyes, “had forgotten he was a Cunningham” (31). Even Scout, a six year old girl, perceives the Cunningham family as lower class.
