To Kill a Mockingbird "Ignorant individuals are those who refuse to see the world through the eyes of another." - Matthew Michael James once said. Ignorance is something that is oblivious to humans and are not aware of their lack of knowledge about other people. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, displays Attics Finch a lawyer that was chosen to defend Tom Robinson's life from the racist people in Maycomb County such as Bob Ewell, and to always be their for his two children Scout, and Jem that experience many conflicts throughout the novel. Two characters that show bewilderment throughout the course of the novel is Scout, and Bob Ewell.
Scout also does not understand the consequences of many things. This includes about fighting and the situation with Boo Radley, the Finch’s exclusive neighbour. Having such a young narrator gives To Kill a Mockingbird a different point of view to many other stories. It shows innocence and naivety, but also to not judge everything straight away. It helps ease the tension, especially during such a controversial novel.
Overall, these attempts lead to notes on fishing poles, peering through the window, and touching the side of Boo’s house which anyone can conclude as immature. Even Atticus comes to somewhat of a realization as to what the kids are trying to do and yells at them. With Scout’s innocence slowly diminishing, her ability to play silly games is not acceptable; especially with no more “free passes” left. She understands to respect those around her, even if it means subtracting out the fun. Not only is Scouts
Atticus takes it into his responsibility to protect someone he knows is an innocent, and he does it even though Tom’s a different color. Another theme was people often fear what they don’t understand. Throughout this story, Scout and her brother Jem try to find out about Boo Radley, Boo and his family were the outcasts of Maycomb. There were rumors of Boo, that he was crazy and locked up in the basement. Scout and Jem always tried to fool around by the Radley house, trying to see what he looks like.
In his novel, Lord of the Flies, author William Golding explores these possibilities with disturbing revelations. Certainly, there are numerous examples of children behaving inappropriately when no supervision is present; however, Golding provides not only examples of these acts but also their progression from bad to worse as the characters become more and more comfortable living without guidance. In the novel, Golding gave a couple examples of disrespectful behaviors and actions. There were many ways that this behavior was shown. There was cussing, disrespect and killing.
This shows that Tom could not have been the rapist because he has a shriveled up arm and could not have possibly beaten Mayella, while Bob was ambidextrous and a liar. From his carelessness, Mayella a mockingbird at first, has been transformed into a blue jay because she was forced to lie. In the end, Bob wins the trial, but Atticus uses the trial to teach his children the true meaning of a mockingbird. Atticus conveys an important notion to Scout on page 90 of the novel, “It’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” By Atticus helping Scout understand what he means, he helps her move toward the right direction in life. However, Bob Ewell, an impudent, incautious, and prevaricator man, ends up ruining his innocuous children’s lives.

Sylvia Guérin-Marion Stéfanie Arnold EAE2D1-02 Monday, 26 November 2012 The Ugliness of Evil Stories can have much effect on how people see the world. Stories tell people’s memories and their experiences in a unique point of view. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, many important values are shown and enriched, racism is very flagrant and substantiates all its cruelty and injustice, and all of that, told in an innocent child’s perspective. The worldwide bestseller by Harper Lee is a great example of a story that has profound effect on people. Values are a way of thinking, a way of doing, and more importantly, a way of life.
The topic of abduction, though covered in the news extensively, does not reach the level of analysis you took in your novel. Through the writing of Jack the reader experiences another layer of depth to the book overall and is provided a new perspective when looking at the situation of this abduction. The world is full of people of Old Nick who take advantage of trusting children with innocence to lose. Jack knows nothing of the outside world and when he does experience it for the first time, it is marred by the reality of the situation he just escaped. In your book you talk about both of these problems and the impact it has on the characters.
A child treated this way learns to see themselves as unlovable and others as rejecting, and they tend to be apprehensive about relationships. A dismissive attachment style is one in which a parent/caregiver is disinterested in, rejects or abuses a child. Children who develop this style do not accept a parent's view of them as unlovable, unlike a fearful attachment. They think others are untrustworthy and they will develop a positive view of themselves, but have a low regard for others and relationships. An anxious/ambivalent style is more complex because it is fostered by inconsistent treatment by the parent/caregiver.
