The feelings I listed made me infer that something bad was going to happen as the story progressed. 2. What can we infer about Doodle based on his description? What I gathered from the description the narrator gave me about Doodle was that he was weak and disabled but he was also resilient. I use the word resilient because although the doctors, and his parents, and lots of other folks were saying that he can't do this or that; in the end he ended up being successful and completing every task they said that he won't be able to do.
(Chapter 11, Page 113) When she bad- mouthed Atticus like that, Jem decided that the best way to settle things was to ruin Mrs. Dubose's camellias. After Atticus heard about this stunt, Jem was made to read to her every afternoon for a month. Mrs. Dubose was a very sick lady, and had morphine to ease her pain. It was not until after she died that Atticus explained to Jem and Scout how courageous the lady was because she knew she was dying but was still determined to die free of the morphine. She
He felt let down in his father, as he didn't arrest anyone or carry a gun, "And that disappointed me at times". David saw Wes as a great role model later when he realized what a challenge it was choosing between being a brother, sheriff and an employer to Marie. David starts to see his father in a different way because of the difficult situation he was in, evidence of this is shown when he "could appreciate the situation his father was in" therefore gaining respect for him. Unlike Wes, Frank was a negative role model to David. In Montana shows that David believed that Frank was the perfect "manly" role model until his true colours showed.
This is where Amir finds his courage. When he finds Sohrab, he gets the crap kicked out of him by Assef, and almost killed by him and his gaurds, all to save the boy from him. Amir finally stood up for something he cared about, and he was able to, in a way, redeem some of the poor choices he made as a child. It may have taken to the end of the book for Amir to find his courage, but when he finally did, he was able to be somewhat at peace with himself for what happened on that cold winter day in
Doodle's big brother's fear of being made fun of led him to being ashamed of his little brother. This subsequently led to him to teach Doodle how to walk. He also did not want to have a brother that could not do anything. Doodle's brother only helped Doodle for his own reasons and for himself. Doodle's brother was cruel.
He also taught him how stealing was the biggest sin. Baba’s teaching Amir how to be independent helped him to receive redemption, because whenever Amir was too scared to do something, or he was stuck, he thought of his father Baba, and found the courage to move on. DeLuca 2 DeLuca 2 Pursuing this further, Amir’s relationship with Assef helped him heal himself of the guilt. While
His children particularly Mayella, have been affected by this lack of empathy, and have developed it as well. After Bob had just saved Scout and Jem's lives, Atticus and Mr. Heck Tate were talking about Mr. Ewell. "He has guts enough to pester a poor coloured woman, he had guts enough to pester Judge Taylor when he thought the house was empty, so do you think he'd met your face in daylight?" (Page 269) - Mr. Heck Tate (on why Bob Ewell went after Scout and Jem). This quote shows how Bob Ewell has no empathy skills whatsoever.
Mrs. Dubose was another character that showed courage in To Kill A Mockingbird. She struggled with a morphine addiction for years due to pain from cancer. When Mrs. Dubose found out her death was near, she set a goal: to die free from her addiction. She knew this would be difficult, but with determination, Mrs. Dubose ultimately died free of her reliance on morphine. Even Atticus, who didn’t like Mrs. Dubose, admitted to her being “the bravest person I ever knew,” (Lee).
He left his home on a search because he felt his parents and teachers had taught him everything they could offer him. Like Tyler Siddhartha is an anti materialist, he also feels people should not be attached to objects. He believes society/ culture is lacking and possibly not living up to its full potential. In Siddhartha’s path he goes alone without the help of others.
Name Teacher Class May To Kill a Mockingbird In Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee mentioned a saying Atticus created about damaging innocuous animals (or killing mockingbirds). The novel’s title, too, is a reference to two of the story’s characters Boo Radely and Tom Robinson. Both of them epitomize Atticus’s quote and the story’s overall and reoccurring theme, “Atticus said to Jem one day, ‘I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit’em, but remember it is a sin to kill a mockingbird” (90). During the trial regarding Mayella Ewell’s rape, the People of the State of Alabama v. Tom Robinson, everyone in Maycomb went to the courthouse to observe the trial and how it would proceed.
