He wows to get back at Atticus for making him look like a fool. On Halloween night, after the towns party, Scout and Jem are attacked on their way home. Boo Radley comes out of his house and saves the two children by stabbing Bob Ewell. The sheriff claims that Mr.
Radley was only defending the children and he would not be charged with murder. Major themes One of the main themes in the book is You can never truly understand a person until you consider things from their point of view. This theme reoccurred many times in the book. This was brought up when Scout was complaining about Miss Caroline on the first day of school. She then realized that it was an honest mistake being that Miss Caroline didnt know all of Maycombs ways.
The other situation was when Scout stood on the Radley porch. She could see imagine everything happening on their street. Another theme is that It is wrong to hurt a harmless being.
This theme is shown by Tom Robinson. He is an innocent man, but is charged with rape. The jury claims that he is guilty and puts him in jail. This is the same as hurting a mockingbird.
Boo Radley is also an example. He spends his time in his house without hurting anyone, and when he saves the children it is only for a good cause. Symbols in the book The two symbols that I saw in this book were mockingbirds and the mad dog. Mockingbirds represented all the innocent people who were taken advantage of.
Tom Robinson was framed for raping Mayella and killed. Black people were subordinate to white people. They did no harm, but were put down for no reason.
Boo Radley also represents a mockingbird. He only helps the children and he should not be set up for something he doesnt like. Killing mockingbirds simply represent doing something pointless to someone who never meant any harm. The mad dog represented the case. Both were things that Atticus didnt want to do, but had to do. After both events, Scout and Jem both look up to their father after these events because they are proud of their father and no longer think of him as old and boring.
Other Significant Imagery There were many examples of imagery in the book, but some that stood out to me were the descriptions of Mayella Ewell and Mrs.
Harper Lee describes Mrs. Dubose, She was horrible.
Her face was the color of a dirty pillowcase, and the corners of her mouth glistened with wet, which inched like a glacier down the deep grooves enclosing her chin. Old-age liver spots dotted her cheeks, and her pale eyes had black pinpoint pupils. Her hands were knobby, and the cuticles were grown up over her fingernails.
Escolano framers. This well-settled maxim applies in the understanding of the book. Writing Style It is an accepted theory that authors, no matter how great they are, leave traces of their personality into their piece. The author of the book being reviewed is no exception.
In fact, Ms.
Harper Lee is a daughter of a former newspaper editor, proprietor and lawyer. The plot and characters of the novel is based solely on her childhood observations of her family and neighbors, as well as on an event that occurred near her hometown. Escolano Target Reader Based from the writing style of Ms. Harper Lee, it is practical to note that the target reader of the book may vary from lawyer to non-lawyer, young or old, and white or black. The simplicity of the book structure, the arrangement of thoughts chronologically and logically will allow any reader to relate to the progress of the story.
The author rarely used legal terms. And when she mentioned one, she made it sure to define the terms for the reader to understand its meaning. Objective of the Book The book has two 2 objectives. The first objective is to open the eyes of the readers that, although some people are born gifted beyond the normal scope of most men, in the eyes of the court, all men are created equal.
However, due to racial discrimination, the fair treatment of the law is not attained. Either way, the book achieved its over-all purpose. Weakness The only weakness that came to my attention while reading the novel was the unrelated chapters right after the trial. About two 2 or three 3 chapters are unrelated which, in my humble opinion, may be deleted in its entirety without affecting the plot of the story.
Aside from this flaw, in which other authors are also guilty of, no other weaknesses are noticed. Escolano Several years ago, the book merely narrates to me a story of a young girl whose father is a lawyer, which lawfully tried to save a life of a man accused of rape.
Meaning to say, our laws does not tolerate racism. It does not matter what nationality, gender or personal circumstances you have, for as long as you violated Philippine laws, you will ultimately be liable. Sometime in , in the era of racial discrimination, the sleepiness of the country was awakened by an allegation of rape purportedly committed by a Negro against a 19 year old woman. Scout and her older brother Jem watched the whole trial progress.
