"...I swear to God, he ain't never hurt us, he coulda cut my throat from ear to ear that night but he tried to mend my pants instead...he ain't never hurt us, Atticus-"

"Scout," he said, "Mr. Ewell fell on his knife. Can you possibly understand?" Atticus looked like he needed cheering up. I ran to him and hugged him and kissed him with all my might, "Yes sir, I understand," I reassured him. "Mr. Tate was right," Atticus disengaged himself and looked at me. "What do you mean?" "Well it'd be sort of like shootin' a
wouldn't it? Atticus put his face in my hair and rubbed it. When he got up and walked across the porch into the shawdows, his youthful step had returned. Before he went inside the house, he stopped in front of Boo Radley. "Thank you for my children, Arthur," he said."

with a blanket at Maudie Atkinson's house fire

-Atticus Finch
Boo Radley keeps to himself and does no harm, so it would be a sin to kill him, just like the
“Atticus said, “Whoa son,” so gently that I was greatly heartened. It was obvious he had not followed a word Jem said, for all Atticus said was, “You’re right. We’d better keep this and the
to ourselves. Someday, maybe, Scout can thank him for covering her up.” “Thank who?” I asked. “Boo Radley. You were so busy looking at the fire you didn’t know when he put the blanket around you.”
Maycomb's in for a



"With movements so swift they seemed simultaneous, Atticus's hand yanked a ball-tipped lever as he brought the gun to his shoulder.
The rifle cracked. Tim Johnson leaped, flopped over and crumpled on the sidewalk in a brown-and-white heap. He didn't know what hit him."


Harry Johnson's sick dog, Tim Johnson, also known as the pet of Maycomb, was seen wandering around town in mid-daylight.
"Tim Johnson was not much more than a speck into the distance, but he was closer to us. He walked erratically... He reminded me of a car stuck in a sand bed."

-Death: Mrs. Dubose, heart-shattering goodbye
The blanket is a symbol and a foreshadow. It symbolizes protection given by Boo and foreshadows when he saves Scout and Jem from Bob Ewell.
"For reasons unfathomable to the most experienced prophets in Maycomb County, autumn turned to winter that year. We had two weeks of the coldest weather since 1885, Atticus said. Mr. Avery said it was written on the Rosetta Stone that when children disobeyed their parents, smoked cigarettes and made war with each other, the seasons would change..."
The snow symbolizes change within the story. Snow symbolizes change in the trial and in Mayella. It was rare for a white man to defend a black man, let alone in court in the 1930s and in the deep south. Also the affection Mayella showed toward Tom Robinson was a drastic change.

The evidence of the dog symbolizes how something good can turn evil - dog was never problematic until he got sick. This exposed Atticus' dark side, which the kids did not yet really know of. The whole situation indicates how Maycomb was so small that something simple could cause a disturbance.

Also, the dog flashback also is a foreshadowing symbol of the trial. Fate is inevitable in the given circumstances of society.

~Gun = the legal system concerning the trial and its verdict
~Dog = innocence faced with injustice, unable to change things
~Setting = the environment itself, inevitable doom due to those surrounding (kind of literal)

"My stomach turned to water and I nearly threw up when Jem held out the blanket and crept towards me."
