Hassan has taken the blame for Amir their hole chidhood whilst they shot nuts at the neighbors dog and here he takes the risk of being attacked by Assef in order to get to the fallen kite for Amir. His kindness only emphasises the horror of the scene because it contrasts completely with Amir's inability to step up and protect his friend. Amir only thinks of himself and his want to please his father whilst Hassan thinks only of Amir “for you a thousand times over.” Hosseini doesn't give a detailed description of this scene. Every time it has the potential to become graffic, Amir takes his mind off of the situation. Only about a page and a half reflects the duration and the word ‘rape’ is not used.
For example, she says: “Atticus was feeble, he was nearly fifty”, which shows us that when Scout seeks her fathers attention, all she gets in response to her probing is: “I’m too old.” Atticus says to Jem when Jem and Scout after they received their air rifles, “I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mocking bird.” The full significance of this remark is explained to Scout by Miss Maudie Atkinson. “They don’t eat up peoples gardens… they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird…” what they are both saying is that they represent a gentle, harmless creature, both beautiful and innocent. Thus, to kill a mocking bird would be a wicked and spiteful, a senseless and pointless act of destruction.
Although he did kill a few people in the story, he never really wanted to. When he defeated Bonzo and Stilson, he did it so that he would not just win that fight, he’d win all of the fights that they would ever have. He never meant to kill anyone. When he found out that he killed all the buggers he started crying. The IF lied to him and told him that it was just a game when it was not.
Jem and Scout eventually learn the truth about their father as they watch him deal with some very difficult circumstances in the prejudiced, southern town of Maycomb. In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Atticus Finch’s actions and conversations with his children expose important themes by teaching life lessons about the meaning of true courage and the value of seeing things from others’ perspectives. Through his words and actions, Atticus Finch reveals the theme of true courage by showing his children that courage is much more than physical strength and bravery. Atticus teaches his children about mental strength, moral courage, and determination by making Jem read to an unpleasant, dying neighbor, Mrs. Dubose. Atticus explains, "Instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.
The boys prove man to be inherently evil through control, mistreatment, and murder. In The Lord of the Flies the boys on the island prove that humans are innately evil through excessive control. At the very beginning of the book Jack tries to control his choir, making them hunters. Jack said to Ralph, “I’ll split up the choir-my hunters that it,“ (Golding 42). Right here Jack already tries to imply that his choir is more savage than the rest of the boys by calling them hunters.
During Christmas, when Jem and Scout receive air guns as a present, Atticus warned his children that if they must shoot at living creatures, they are forbidden from shooting at the mockingbirds. Mockingbird is the symbolic of true goodness and purity in which the action of killing it is considered as unacceptable. For instance, the character of Boo Radley can somehow be represented as the mockingbird. After thorough analysis, he proves to be harmless to anyone and only acts as an observer towards his surroundings. In an event, he acts as a hero by killing Bob Ewells who threatens Jem’s and Scout’s
For example, he talks to Simon and predicts that the boys will kill him later. This shows that Beelzebub wants to mess up the boy’s mental thinking, so they can become savages. This is because it represents that we all have an inner demon, even the kindest people we know can be heartless. Furthermore, piggy
In addition, Atticus was able to predict he would lose the case because of the prejudiced town. Despite everything going against him, Mr. Finch took on the case because he knew it was the right thing to do. Atticus even said, “Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win,” (Lee). This is nearly the definition of courage. Mrs. Dubose was another character that showed courage in To Kill A Mockingbird.
In both novels, evil is revealed by the telling actions of the characters. In Lord of the Flies, the boys' society starts to fall apart as Jack becomes less and less civilized and the other boys gradually follow his example. Simon is the only innocent and civilized boy, even Ralph and Piggy expose their evil nature when they help the other boys in the killing of Simon. Besides the murders of Simon and Piggy, evil is also demonstrated through the scenes when the pig is killed, Piggy's glasses are stolen, and the conch shell is smashed to pieces. Dexter, man’s sinful nature is seen
I figured something unpleasant would happen to T.J., because throughout the story, he has been evil, such as when he used the cheat notes for the test, so eventually something horrible will strike back at him, in this case it would be him going into jail. 2) When Cassie mourns for T.J. , I feel most sorry for T.J., because of the terrible things that happened to him such as him being beaten by R.W. and Melvin. I also feel most sorry for T.J., because you would wonder how his family would feel about him going into jail, watching him being beaten, and hear that he robbed the mercantile. I think the Avery family would be disappointed and sad for T.J.. 3) Cassie changed by the events of the night of the fire, because she started out by thinking that black people need to stand out to the white people without causing problems, but in the end she realizes that papa started to stop the men from hanging T.J. without papa using his gun, so she understood that if he used his gun he would probably the one who will be hung.
