Killing a mockingbird is all about prejudice and the many different forms it comes in. In the novel, it’s expressed through a seemingly innocent and harmful act of the children’s perceptions of Boo Radley, as well as in an ugly form like that of the false accusation and ultimate death of Tom Robinson. These two characters are ‘mockingbirds’ in a sense because they are kind, unassuming and selfless – they bring nothing but pleasure to the people they know. Boo’s kindness to the children is downplayed, and reflects significantly on his nature. Arthur literally becomes ‘Boo’, a boogieman.
Three main characters, Jean Louise Scout Finch, her lawyer father Atticus, and her older brother Jem encounter prejudice, hypocrisy and other evils in Alabama during the 1930’s. Several characters in this novel help Scout and Jem understand courage as a reoccurring theme to the plot, with each example a different exploration of the moral nature of human beings. Consider Mrs. Dubose an elderly ill-tempered racist woman with a hearty morphine addiction. In order to go to town, the children had to pass her house, unless wanting to walk a mile out of the way. Strolling home from town one afternoon, a verbal dispute ensued with Mrs. Dubose.
To Kill A Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee, is a novel which utilises the symbolism of a mockingbird throughout the text. Mockingbirds are gentle, harmless creatures, therefore making it “a sin to kill a mockingbird” as Atticus so proudly announces. Lee depicts a dysfunctional American society with a narrow-mindedness towards racial segregation and inequality, and uses the imagery of the mockingbird to symbolise the destruction of innocence, This representation can be seen within Tom Robinson, who was killed by corruption within the system and racial prejudice, Boo Radley, who was slain by society’s judgement towards those who don’t conform, and Dill, who shows the happiness a mockingbird can bring, flitting in and out of one’s life, and then his loss of innocence after the trial.
Sympathy I enjoyed Lee’s use of the theme of sympathy throughout To Kill a Mockingbird. Through Lee’s protagonist Atticus Finch, he shows the importance of sympathy by examining the ability to understand another’s perspective, specifically those of Miss Caroline Fisher and Boo Radley. The first instance occurs when fisher yells at Scout for already knowing how to read. She takes offense because Scout prevented her from teaching everyone in her own way. Later that evening, Atticus tries to explain to Scout why Fisher yelled at her.
