Bob Ewell, father of Mayella was next to speak. He explained that he was coming in from the woods before sundown, when he got to the fence and heard Mayella screaming. The room looked like there had been a fight there. He saw that it was Tom, then he ran inside. He also didn't contact a doctor.
As she got older, she is still afriad of the Radley’s place. Though they never saw “Boo” the stories were what haunted her. Another example would be, the people in Maycomb was also scared of that house. “A baseball hit into the Radley’s yard it was a lost ball and no questions asked.”-(9). The quote explained how that no body wanted to go to the Radley’s place because people were scared of it.
In the beginning of the book, Atticus teaches Scout a valuable lesson, “If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee, 30). From this, Scout learns that each person goes through their own battles no matter who they are. Scout’s Aunt Alexandra becomes an example of this class bias, as she assumes she is superior due to her wealth. When Scout asks Aunt Alexandra why she can’t play with Walter Cunningham, Aunt Alexandra replies “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.” (Lee, 225).
Throughout To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, Scout learns, and applies, the life lessons her father had instilled in her. She understands what courage really is, alongside the definition of cowardice, and logic. “Because you’re children and you can understand it,” Mr. Dolphus Raymond explained to Scout. She realizes the necessity to see things though other’s points of views as well as treating everyone equally. She understands how truly wrong embarrassment and shaming of others is.
Kristine Paulus Return Journey “A Worn Path” October 3, 2011 Phoenix continues on her footsteps with her cane on the narrow road ahead of her. She slowly wipes the tears from her aged eyes filled with joy and satisfaction. Then she looks at the medicine and says “oh child grandma is coming home, I’ll soon be there”. She looks up to the sky and say “thank you Lord for guiding my footsteps to get this medicine for my ill grandson”. “Tap tap tap” she repeats constantly as she heads south to her destination to the toy store.
But what choices she made, turned her into a perpetrator. “It came to me that Mayella Ewell must have been the loneliest person in the world.” Upon hearing this, I thought of Mayella as a victim. She had eight other people in her house with her, but no one ever helped her with chores or shown any affection for her. When asked if she had friends, she seemed completely confused by the idea of having friends. She wasn’t accepted into society because of who her family was.
She loves her son but frequently complains that after all the money she spent on his education, he has not made anything of himself. She is addicted to alcohol, particularly to muscatel. Mrs. Reilly may herself be a primary cause of Ignatius’ problems. Rather than playing the role of the doting, supportive mother, Mrs. Reilly repeatedly emphasizes that he is a failure and disgrace for having wasted his education. She is not a good example for him; she spends her days sitting around the house, drinking muscatel, talking to Santa Battaglia on the phone, and going bowling.
He sewed Jem's pants and left them on the fence so he could get them easily. He also saved Scout's and Jem's lives while risking his own. Boo was a fragile and gentle person. Throughout the novel, Scout, Jem, and Dill are curious about the "mysterious" Boo Radley because he never comes outside from his house or associates with anyone in the neighborhood. The children are afraid of him because of all the stories they hear about him from the people in Maycomb.
Paragraph 2- Curley's wife Talk about how she is always hanging around on the ranch, finding excuses to get out of the house. Contain references to the fact that she is the only woman on the ranch and that she is married to a man that she dislikes greatly. Refer to her being only just into her late teens. Mention how she, as well as crooks, opened up to Lennie because she was lonely. Also mention that she lied to herself and made herself believe that the man she met could really have put her in the pictures and that her mother had hidden the letters from Hollywood.
For many reasons, and for Scout, she doesn’t remember her mother at all because she died when Scout was very little. The only “mother figure” that Scout has grown up around has been Calpurnia. For as long as Scout can remember. Calpurnia has been taking care of Jem and Scout when Atticus is at work and just wanting to read at night, she has been there to cook and take care of the kids. “If Mr. Finch doesn’t wear you out, I will.” (278) Calpurnia isn’t scared to give the kids a spanking.
