A symbol is an object that represents an idea, and the snowman in To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the major symbols discussed. One day in Maycomb, it snows, but not a lot. Jem and his younger sister, Scout, decide to make a snowman. This snowman is a symbol for many different reasons and they all end up with the topic of racism. The snowman is one of the many symbols that Harper Lee uses in To Kill a Mockingbird.
Because Snowman has no humans to interact with, he starts to forget words and their meanings. This is significant to the plot as it demonstrates the impacts of technology on our society and how it diminishes our humanity (technology led to the extinction of humans).

The thick willow scrub along the river flamed with sharp and positive yellow leaves.

Wealth, hard work, job security and family union are some of the concepts that involves the well-known term, the American Dream. Few people think this dream is something that is automatically granted.

His nose twitches and his ears perk up with the sudden sound of another creature lurking. In a flash, he jerks the leash and attempts to charge at the squirrel who has safely reached refuge high up in a tree. Crying at the bottom of the tree , he realizes he has no shot.
