This in our eyes is a morbid and gruesome way to be brought down, and the thought that it was almost voluntary and the whole town participates women, men, and children is more then most can stomach. In our minds he who is with out sin shall cast the first stone. Jackson was making a point to Americans through The Lottery that societies are not all as innocent as they believe themselves to be, thus no stone should ever be cast. She illuminated this point through the townspeople's belief that there is no inherent evil in the annual stoning of an innocent victim, because they themselves are without sin. The reader is, nevertheless, incensed by such an act.
He does not bother to find a job or even support his family. He also blames Atticus for being a blue jay, because Bob believes that the reason he lost his job was because of Atticus. However, even if Atticus knows Bob is blaming him, Atticus does not let Bob’s claim ruin him. Nonetheless, Bob Ewell uses the welfare money to buy whiskey for himself, leading to his family of eight’s starvation. Back in chapter three, Atticus explained to his daughter Scout, “When a man spends his relief checks on green whiskey his children have a way of crying from hunger pains,” (Lee 31).
However, they became embroiled in a dispute over who deserved credit and the play never saw production. Her major achievements were generally between 1931 and 1943, when she wrote scholarly works on folklore and published six major novels. In 1937, Hurston’s greatest, and probably the most notable novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God”, was published. Some of her fantastic writings are: Jonah's Gourd Vine (1934 First novel), Moses, Mules and Men (1935), Tell My Horse (1938), Man of the Mountain (1939), Dust Tracks on a Road (1942), and Seraph on the Suwanee (1948 and last novel). Unfortunately, her reputation got affected in 1948 when she was arrested for molesting a ten-year-old retarded boy; the charges were later
Aaron Cataquet 1 / 24 / 13 Period 5 English Dwyer Critical Lens Herodotus said “… men are at the mercy of events and cannot control them.” To me, this quote means that us men (females to) have about 10% control of our life/journey but that the other 90% we have no say or control. I agree with this quotation because there are hundreds of examples in literary works and in reality that show this quote is true. This can be seen in To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee, especially in the character of Tom Robinson. This also can be seen in Night by Elie Wiesel. This quote can be proven by witnessing Tom Robinson.
Ethan Hefley Mrs. Barr Comp II April 17, 2012 “To Kill a Mockingbird” Harper Lee's “To Kill a Mockingbird” demonstrates how courage is required when facing something even when it seems impossible. The setting, characters, and symbolism play a huge role in the purpose of the novel. “To Kill a Mockingbird” takes place in Maycomb, Alabama during the Great Depression. Though every character Lee wrote into his novel was symbolic and important, the most significant characters are Atticus, Jem, and Scout Finch. Atticus, the narrator’s father, is a lawyer in Maycomb.
This allows the message to sink into the reader. The title of the novel is an obvious indicator to the author’s purpose which is to criticise prejudiced societies and people in the world. The mockingbird symbol is referred to by a variety of characters; from Atticus to Miss Maudie to Mr Underwood who “likened Tom’s death to the senseless slaughter of songbirds”. Atticus’s message against harming those who have done no wrong is passed on to his son Jem who advises Scout to let a roly poly bug live “because they don’t bother you.” By doing this, Atticus exhibits that all it takes is the power of one to make a change to overcoming prejudice in people. His courage in defending ‘coloured’ Tom Robinson in a court case and enduring insults such as “nigger-lover,” helped to bring about the beginning of change in Maycomb.
In our courts, when its a white man's word against a black man's, the white man always wins. They're ugly, but those are the facts of life.” The 3rd lesson that Scout learned in, “ To Kill A Mockingbird" would be that courage is manifested in ways other than physical acts. Now a very good representation of this lesson would be Atticus Finch. Even though people called him names an threatened him, Atticus still persevered through these hardships and took the abuse. A very good example from the noel which portrays well his courage is this right here when he was talking to him brother about jem and scout.
She also shows importance of family in the relationship of Scout, Jem, and Boo Radley. Lee shows that family isn’t just by blood, but by loving and caring also. The relationship between Atticus, Scout, and Jem is very friend-like, not father-children like. Jem and Scout never call Atticus by anything other than his name, such as the first time we see it, “We were far too old to settle an argument with a fist fight, so we consulted Atticus” (Lee 3). Readers are shown very much bluntness between Atticus and his children, especially when he and Scout are talking and Scout asks him, “Do you defend niggers, Atticus?” and Atticus responds with, “Of course I do.
That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.” (Maudie, 90). Maudie explains to Scout that killing a mockingbird is sinful because they are innocent creatures who do nothing to harm us. Boo Radley most represents the mockingbird and the theme ‘innocence should be treasured, not destroyed’. At first, Boo Radley appears to be big and scary. Stories went around about him, discriminating and degrading him, causing Boo to stay in his house and out of the public eye.
