    ... away from fishing to accompany him to Helen Robinson's house, and how Helen collapsed at the news. Meanwhile, the news occupies Maycomb's attention for about two days, and everyone agrees that it is typical for a black man to do something irrational like trying to escape. Mr. Underwood writes a long editorial condemning Tom's death as the murder of an innocent man, and the only other important reaction comes when Bob Ewell is overheard saying that the death makes "one down and about two more to go." Atticus advises Jem to stand in Bob Ewell's shoes, echoing to advice he gave Scout earlier in the novel. Here, however, Atticus' attempt to understand another human being fails: he makes an h ...

    In, To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee refers to Oliver Optic, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and Victor Appleton as three authors whose works were enjoyed by Scout, Jem and Dill. These 19th and 20th century authors had similar writing styles and plot formulations. Adventure stories, which were the genre of the tales written by these particular authors, were extremely appealing to the young children in Harper Lees novel. Scout and her friends wove detailed imaginary dramas portraying characters discovered in these works. The most popular works, which were also mentioned in the book, were Tarzan, The Rover Boys, Tom Swift, and The Gray Ghost. Not only were they popular with fictional Jem, Dill, and Sco ...

  • To Kill A Mockingbird A Discussion Of Major Themes Within The Text - 1,177 words
    The novel To Kill a Mockingbird is a rich text consisting of themes that were the harsh reality of the novels setting; rural Alabama during the 1930s. Racism, discrimination, prejudice, and hatred are all among the issues that author Harper Lee deals with.

Scout is telling the reader the story in retrospect when the novel begins. We learn she is six years old and has an older brother named Jem. Central to the plot is the childrens innocence. Their relative naivete can be observed through the simple ways in which they play and pass the time. Jem and Sc ...

Some of these examples are shown in the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. With Maycombs social structure were the Cunninghams, the Ewells and the Blacks. In Maycombs county the Cunninghams were poor people, but hard working people. With the Maycombs society the majority of the people were made up of farmers in this small Alabama community.

    In 1960, Harper Lees To Kill a Mockingbird was first published. The book was published in the middle of the civil rights movement (Jones 53). The novel has been admired by many since it was first written, and it is a story that deals with racism in the 1930s. Diane Telgen said the following about the novel, "Lees story of the events surrounding the trial has been admired for its portrayal of Southern Life during the 1930s, not only for its piercing examination of the causes and effects of racism, but because it created a model of tolerance and courage in the character of Atticus Finch" (Telgen 285), one of the main characters in To Kill a Mockingbird.

Atticus once warned his children that " [that a mob is always made up of people, no matter what]" (Johnson "The Secret Courts of Mens Hearts" 134). Atticus does not approve of the Ewells because they are trash, and Scout never heard her father talk about people the way he did about the Ewells (Lubert 2). "Atticus tells his children that any man who takes advantage of a black man is trash" (Telgen 292). Atticus decides to defend Mr. Robinson because he believes it is the right thing to do even if it may not be in his best interest to do so. At the Tom Robinson trial, Atticus did t ...

  • Kill A Mockingbird - 658 words
    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 ...

    This week in Maycomb there is a bit of a controversy. There is a trial for a black man named Tom Robinson. He is being tried for hurting and raping Mayella Ewell on November 21st. There are two sides to this story. I was lucky enough to be in the courtroom to witness this trial as it took place. In this article, I will examine each of the witnesses stories.

    In To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee there was examples of evil, hypocrisy, and injustice. Many characters represent these traits. Jem and Scout were a large part of these things. In the category of evil, the reader can see three examples very easily just from Bob Ewell. He attacks Jem and Scout in the woods and shows how evil one person can be when the children did nothing to him. He also stalked Tom Robinsons wife and Judge Taylor when they did absolutely nothing to him. He beat his daughter when he found out that she had been talking to a black man. This is no reason to beat anyone, especially your own daughter. There is many examples of hypocrisy in the book. In Scouts class, the teach ...

  • The Caste System In To Kill A Mockingbird - 1,249 words
    Imagine a time and place where no one is equal. Colored people have to drink from different water fountains; those who were poorer are not allowed to be involved with those who were wealthier than them. As a matter of fact, if one was different, they are shunned by society. In a perfect world, people would rejoice in each one anothers happiness, but this isnt a perfect world; nor was it in the 1930s. The Southern states were an area of archaic, imported romanticism (Erisman, p.1). People of the south disliked anyone who was different from them. Even people of the same race or caste often disliked one another. There was fighting between races. Some white groups had hatred for other white grou ...

There are the apparent and standard castes, but when one looks deeper, there is more the meets the eye. The upper class consists of the members of the Missionary Society, Atticus, Dr. Reynolds, Judge Taylor, and so on. (Bloom, p.42) The Middle class consists of nameless individuals who flesh out Miss Lees story- Braxton Underwood, the owner-editor of The Maycomb Tribune, or Mr. Sam Levy. (Bloom, p.42) Others such as The Cunninghams are another group of middle class people. The lower class said by Aunt Alexandra as trash is mainly made up of the Ewells, who, though more sl ...

    Chapter Summarys of To Kill A Mockingbird Chapter 1: Scout's father, Atticus Finch, studied law in Montgomery while supporting his brother, John "Jack" Hale Finch, who was in medical school in Boston. His sister Alexandra is living at the Landing. Atticus began his law practice in Maycomb, the county seat of Maycomb County, where his office in the courthouse contained little more than a hat rack, a spittoon, and a checkerboard. His first case entailed his defense of two men who refused to plead guilty for second-degree murder. They instead pleaded not guilty for first-degree murder, and were hung, marking probably the beginning of my father's profound distaste for criminal law. Her father is ...

  • Prejudice In To Kill A Mockingbird - 828 words
    Prejudice is a real life problem in the world. In To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee describes the prejudices found in a small American town in the 1930's. Race, social class, and gender are examples of prejudice. Racial prejudice is discrimination based on the color of ones skin. An example is when Tom Robinson is convicted in his trial. Tom was convicted because he was a black man and his word was not considered as important or truthful as a white man's word. Tom never should have been accused of the crime, but because whites do not trust blacks he was found guilty. Atticus, Tom's attorney, recognized the system wasn't going to change. "When it's a white man's word against a black man's, th ...

  • The Themes Of Childhoods In 'jane Eyre' And 'to Kill A Mockingbird' - 1,391 words
    'To Kill A Mocking Bird' by Harper Lee and 'Jane Eyre' by Charlotte Bront are two very different books written in different periods of history. There are, however, similarities in the themes and background. For example, both books were written during times of great social upheaval and strife. In 'To Kill A Mocking Bird', the world was still very racist and it was not until the book was actually written some twenty years later the men like Martin Luther King and Malcolm X started to bring about real reforms. 'Jane Eyre' was slightly different as this was set during a time when the masses of overworked and underpaid Victorians were being given greater freedoms and more time in which to have th ...
