George Westgarth Ms. K. Oliver ENG2D1 10 April 2015 Role models in To Kill a Mockingbird Martin Luther King Jr. once said “I criticize America because I love her. I want her to stand as a moral example to the World.” In the book To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Jem and Scout encounter quite a few different role models. These mentors range from family, friends, and people throughout the neighbourhood. Since the kids (along with Dill) practically raise themselves by exploring their neighbourhood and street, they soon come to realize that life is more than just fun and games. Atticus, their father, Miss Maudie Atkinson, their sweet neighbour and Culpurnia, who is considered part of the family, all help to teach and mature the children for adulthood.
What she dreams of there in the center of those wires is a world of precision efficiency and tidiness like a pocket watch with a glass back, a place where the schedule is unbreakable.” (Kesey 28,29) Through this quote you can tell the preciseness that Nurse has, she is not a lax person she is very stringent when it comes to the rules she has in the ward. ” So she really lets herself go and her painted smile twists, and she blows up bigger and bigger, big as a tractor… you can smell the machinery inside. She has to change back before she’s caught in the shape of her hideous real self.”(Kesey 5) Nurse ratchet rarely fails to show her façade, evidently in this quote. When Ratchet is out of character it is ephemeral it never lasts long. Kesey uses simile-comparing Ratchet to a roaring tractor to show her true side and what it is like when she shows her self, but then she quickly changes because she doesn’t want anyone to catch on to her.
It is the responsibility of parents to teach their children the many valuable lessons that will help to guide them through their lives. This is demonstrated many times throughout the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It is shown mostly by Atticus and Calpurnia, who are constantly giving Jem and Scout advice about what is right and what is not, in life. Scout especially, learns from Atticus not to judge people before she learns their story and also to respect people in her company, to not act like she’s better than others around her. All of these lessons help Scout’s development throughout the novel.
Micah is this manly sort of man who feels that he can take care of the demon and his girlfriend. Katie becomes extremely annoyed by the antics of Micah and tries to find help in other Zhao 1 ways. Another reason why I enjoyed the actors was because they made everything seem so real. They made the sleeping, the arguments, and the existence of demons real. You also see the change in Micah, he goes from unafraid, and not disturbed by her past, to a complete 360.
I noticed something bizarre though, that the more things I did to impress my mom, the more things she said about the Boogeyman. Each thing I did she said something darker about him, so my plan was a fiasco. My mom was insidious, her skills were impressive and very sneaky. She knew exactly what I was doing and how to stop it. Yet it made no sense, why would she want to scare me even more, its only going to make me go back to my old ways.
Perhaps she only needed him in case she was found out; after all, no-one would have believed that a weak, caring woman could have murdered the king. If they had been discovered, they would have surely blamed Macbeth. Perhaps she is not wholly disturbed after all, and retains a good deal of wit and intelligence for a time. Though an intelligent woman at the time would probably have been considered disturbed. After Macbeth has returned, she reinforces her control over him; accusing him of cowardice and being dishonourable by saying ‘I have given suck, and know/How tender ‘tis to love the babe that milks me.
Without really understanding a person you could wrongfully judge or harm them. Miss Caroline Misjudged Scout which wrongfully hurt her. Scout is faced with this theme once again when later in the novel Jem and herself receive BB guns for Christmas. Scout and Jem are warned to never kill Mockingbirds, it is a sin. Scout asks Miss Maudie, their nextdoor neighbor, why this is.
The quotations, ‘She slept well that night’ and ‘Mary Maloney began to giggle’ tell us that Widow Saverini and Mary Maloney were at ease, satisfied, relaxed as well as relieved at the end. In the beginning of Lamb to the Slaughter, the mood was very calm as the quotation ‘The room was warm and clean...’ tells us. It sets a very pleasant mood, whereas in Vendetta the opening creates a sad and sympathetic mood. The quotation, ‘When the old mother received the body of her child…’ tells us that she was very depressed. The title Lamb to the Slaughter is symbolic to the actual story.
One major archetype in Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird is the quest that the kids try to achieve; to have Boo Radley make an appearance for them. At some points, they even take it upon themselves to find him, deciding one of the ending summer nights to find him “Because nobody could see them at night, because Atticus would be so deep in a book h wouldn't hear the Kingdom coming, because if Boo Radley killed them they'd miss school instead of vacation” (58). This can show that Jem and Dill had decided to put careful planning on their ideas. If they were going to see him, they decided to make the most of their situation. However, the kids still had a mindful watch for their safety in the worst case scenario.
