Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."(p.69) The mockingbird symbolizes these two characters because it does not have its own song.

  • Stand Your Ground - 692 words
    If a person today is asked to do something that he or she may not like to do and they say no, they may be looked down upon. Not only does this happen today, but it also was true in the early 1900s. It is just not fair when people stand up for what their mind feels is right, such as Atticus does in the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, that they are looked down upon and harassed. Atticus tries to teach his children to stand up for what is right throughout the novel. One night Atticus was talking with Jem and said, As you grow older, youll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and dont you forget it-whenever a white man does that to a blac ...

    A) We all know that good literature expresses a theme. This is definitely the case in To Kill a Mockingbird. Harper Lee plays with various universal themes that her readers can relate to. I noticed that Lee made a point to show that ignorance and naiveness are two totally different things. This is most obvious when she uses Scout, a young tomboy to tell her own story. Through Scout we meet Boo Radley, whom to the rest of Maycomb, is, well, a freak because he chooses to live in seclusion. Scout however, though she has never actually met him, uses Boo and his home as sort of like her playground. She finds him mysterious, interesting, and spooky. Another example of where Harper Lee used Scouts ...
