Her father, Atticus Finch is a lawyer trying to prove that Tom Robinson, a black man who is accused of rape, was innocent. Boo Radley a mysterious neighbor is mistaken as a monster and is known for eating animals saves Scout and her brother Jem from being killed.

Presented that De Lacey is unfit to examine the shell that enclosed the beast’s true nature, the wretch was for the first time welcomed by another being. It was not until the remaining peasants returned to the cottage that the peace was destroyed. The compassion-desiring creature is repeatedly beat, by Felix, with a stick that came from the firewood that the monster so generously collected. The wretch flees the scene only to feel “rage and revenge” (Shelley 137) amidst his educators.
