  • Boo Radley - 721 words
    Boo Radley Over the past Summers I have become very fond of Jem and Scout. They somehow touched a nerve inside of me that seemed to open my eyes to the world and the people in it. The fact that I intrigued them amused me. I knew it was only because of the rumours but for some reason it did not matter. It's simple to judge others before actually getting to know them. I know, as the community often misjudged me. When you hear them often enough you actually start believing them yourself. This is the reason I often lonely wandered the streets at night with no real purpose but to look at our beautiful countryside, free of whispers and judging faces. The number of stories spun about me and my fami ...

  • A Comparison Of Coleridge's Rationalism To Wordsworth's Liberalism - 1,720 words
    A Comparison Of Coleridge'S Rationalism To Wordsworth'S Liberalism All friendships grow and nurture each other through time. The friendship between Coleridge and Wordsworth allowed for a special relationship of both criticism and admiration to develop. As their friendship matured, they would play important roles in each other's works, culminating in their joint publication of Lyrical Ballads, which is said to mark the beginning of the Romantic period and be a combination of their best works. Despite their basic differences in poetic styles and philosophical beliefs, they would help each other create numerous works renown for their depth and creativity. Coleridge was a reserved dreamer, a tru ...

  • Emily Dickinson And Harper Lee - 406 words
    Emily Dickinson And Harper Lee In a poem by Emily Dickinson she implies that there is nothing like reading a book to take your imagination to great places. She states, "There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away." Such an idea that excites the imagination to take us places is expressed in Harper Lees To Kill a Mockingbird. In To Kill a Mockingbird there is a great use of symbolism to ignite the human imagination. The title of the book is only mentioned in the story when the father of the protagonist, Atticus Finch, tells his children that if they have to kill birds, they can kill any bird, but "tis a sin to kill a mockingbird." Although this may seem peculiar, the use of symbolism ...

  • Evil: Relation Of Experience And Maturation - 907 words
    Evil: Relation of Experience and Maturation "Our greatest evils flow from ourselves" (Tripp 192). This statement, by Rousseau, epitomizes many points of evil that are discussed in Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird. In our world today, we are stared in the face everyday with many facets of evil. These nefarious things come in several forms, including, but not limited to discrimination of sex, race, ethnicity, physical appearance, and popularity, alcoholism, drug abuse, irresponsibility, and even murder. The occurrences of evil and wrong-doing in To Kill A Mockingbird further along Scout's maturation into a young woman. Three of the most important instances of evil are those of racism, alcoho ...

  • Good Father - 556 words
    Good Father The definition of a good father is as individual as the individuals involved themselves. A good father is able to support his childrens strengths, along with being able to help them overcome their weaknesses. He is able to do this without appearing to be a know-it-all. The ability to show by example how to live life, while not being afraid to make mistakes and not to be perfect all the time are also very important characteristic. Atticus was by that definition a very good father. Whenever Scout was mislead by anything, like the legend of Boo Radley or about how grown ups are, or why certain people feel prejudiced about certain people, Atticus was always right there to guide her. ...

  • Justice Is Not For All - 1,556 words
    Justice Is Not For All Throughout the course of history, mankind has learned many things, and has continually strived in running the race towards the prize that has been set out for them. It's undeniable that at times we do a great job, lighting the future with hope. However, other times the path ahead of us seems only to be filled with darkness. This impression could be given through many of today's undisputable facts. Quite unfortunately, justice is not for all.

In the view of Harper Lee, justice is a s ...

  • Kill A Mocking Bird And Prejudice - 709 words
    To Kill A Mocking Bird And Prejudice Prejudice is a many faced demon which comes in many shapes and disguises. The point that it often goes ignored or unnoticed and shows up in the most unlikely places is what makes it an even more dangerous thing. This is extremely evident in the novel To Kill A Mockingbird. The first sign of prejudice in the novel is shown by the Finch children regarding Arthur (Boo) Radley. They see him as a type of monster or a malevolent phantom as Scout so aptly put it. Any small crimes which were committed in Maycomb were said to be his work. At night when the moon was down, he went and peeped in windows. When peoples azealeas froze in a cold snap, it was because he b ...

    To Kill A Mocking Bird By Lee The book To Kill A Mockingbird contained various references to actual and symbolic prisons.

One may also determine that several of these characters may or may not be set free from their respective form of confinement. Bob Ewell played very complex role in the story To Kill A Mockingbird. Bob Ewell was a man that could not accept his social status. He was an alcoholic that hadnt the faintest concept about how to raise children. Most of all, Ewell was idle. He was too ...

    Reality A Verbal Visual Essay To Kill A Mocking Bird Five Quotes: 1. 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.

If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. Pg. 30 3. It is not necessary to tell all you know.

    To Kill A Mocking Bird To Kill A Mockingbird: Plot Line This book starts out with a simple plot being narrated by Scout. Through the first 7 or 8 chapters, a load of descriptions and short stories are told to get a realistic picture of what life is like living in Maycomb County. Only minor events occur such as the introduction of all the characters, Gem and Scout meeting a new friend Dill, Scout attending school, and probably the biggest: the introduction and old wives tales about the mysterious neighbor Boo Radley. Some small events that increase the suspense were Gems pants being mended by an unknown person, and during a local fire, a blanket wrapped around Scout by a stranger. After the r ...

    To Kill A Mocking Bird "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," these are the words spoken by Atticus Finch when giving advice to his little girl, Jean Louise, "Scout." This theme, "do not judge a person before you get to know them," is something most children, during this day and age, are taught when they are very young, and is the reoccurring theme in To Kill A Mocking Bird. The two clear examples of this theme are with Arthur "Boo" Radley and Tom Robinson. When the characters are first met, they are introduced as bad and maybe even evil people. However, when the characters start to develop ...

    To Kill A Mockingbird I've never been to Alabama, but novelist Harper Lee made me feel as if I had been there in the long, hot summer of 1935, when a lawyer named Atticus Finch decided to defend an innocent black man accused of a horrible crime. The story of how the whole town reacted to the trial is told by the lawyer's daughter, Scout, who remembers exactly what it was like to be eight years old in 1935, in Macomb, Alabama. Scout is the reason I loved this book, because her voice rings so clear and true. Not only does she make me see the things she sees, she makes me feel the things she feels. There's a lot more going on than just the trial, and Scout tells you all about it. A man called B ...

  • To Kill A Mockingbird - 585 words
    To Kill A Mockingbird By Harper Lee To Kill a Mockingbird left a lasting impression on me. At the time it was written, it must have been looked down upon as a piece of literature since there was so much hatred towards negroes in the 1950's that no one could probably realize the unjustified prejudice against them. It especially deals with how the main character, Atticus Finch, deals with the controversy surrounding his actions and how he tries to shelter his family from it. The book's climax, where it is brought to a final solution, takes place at the trial. A woman named Mayella Ewell, accuses a black man named of Tom Robinson of rape. In truth, these claims are false, but she knows she can ...
