In chapter 6 we begin to see just how courageous Jem really is. When the kids decide to try Boo-Baiting and it all goes wrong, Jem strengthens the courage to face the adults about where they had been, what they were doing and although it may have been a lie; it took Jem courage because he never wants to disappoint Atticus. Another act of Jem’s courageousness takes place when he lost his pants in the Radley yard and gets shot at, he decides to go back to get them so that again
He warned Jem "to mind his own business and let the Radleys mind theirs". However, from chapter 5 onwards, Jem starts to show more maturity and moral courage which means that he does what is right even if it is not popular, or that it might anger those around him. Scout did not like this change very much. For example, she often questioned his orders and also said “who’s so high and mighty all of a sudden… You act like you grew ten inches in the night!” One of the important moments in the novel where Jem shows his maturity is when he and Scout find Dill emerging from underneath Scout’s bed after he ran away from home. Jem’s first reaction is that Dill should let his mother know where he was and let her know he
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.
The first is courage. Jem's view of courage is defined by childish acts. For example, Atticus makes the Radley house off limits to Jem and Scout, but one night, Jem ignores his father's rule and touches the front door of the Radley place and then hurries home. While running, Jem's pants get caught in the fence so he must go back to get them. However, as Jem returns to the fence, he demonstrates courage by going back to such a dangerous place to avoid disappointing his father.
Although Jem fears Boo Radley from all the stories he heard about him, bravery takes place when he ran up and touched Boo’s door. Jem’s bravery fulfills a large amount for him to move past his fears, and his actions do so. Another action of Jems takes place. “Jem refuses to leave Atticus and worries that he will get hurt” (194). Jem decides to defend his father and makes sure nothing bad will happen to him.
He is too young and immature to value how good he actually has it relative to many around him. Huck continuously feels sad about his fate and dreams of his independence, the kind of independence that allows him to live care-free with no responsibilities . An early example of Huck’s growing maturation involves his regrets about playing a practical joke on Jim involving a dead snake; this joke takes on forbidding undertones as the two simple souls attribute the snake prank as a foreshadow of bad things. Therefore, as the two seek out the town of Cairo, they begin to speculate that their difficulties finding it are a consequence of their bad luck. Huck attempts to be humorous:“ I says:” Maybe we went by Cairo in the fog that night.” Jim says: “ Dona le’s talk about it, Huck.
It shows that Nick isn’t cautious and he gets distracted without thinking thoroughly about the consequences. He made an effort to try to leave, but somehow he kept on getting distracted, and couldn’t resist the temptation. “but each time I tried to go I became entangled in some wild, strident argument which pulled me back as if with ropes, into my chair.” (pg. 35) As a narrator Nick has to have a strong mind, he shouldn’t get distracted and he should be independent. A narrator should be wise, and they should stand up for themselves, letting readers notice that they are wise.
