Transcript of To Kill A Mockingbird By Costen King

To Kill a Mocking Bird By: Harper Lee The Ingredients AKA The Characters It's what makes the pie good. Themes They help make the pie the final masterpiece it becomes. The Oven! AKA The tools! AKA The Symbols. They are what help make the pie, and without them the pie wouldn't be pie! Dry Ingredients. They usually can't be substituted and are vital to the final outcome. Wet Ingredients Usually can be substituted and, and are minority important. Minor Characters Main Characters Scout Jem Atticus Calpurnia Dill Boo Radely Narrator Daughter Sister Friend Neighbor Student Friend Nephew Neighbor Brother Son Neighbor Friend Student Dad Lawyer Maid Motherly Figure African American CREEPER/ HERO Neighbor Maid Son Daughter Sibling Friends and Neighbors Maid Maid Lesbian Theme One: Disrimination and Equality "There's some folks who don't eat like us," she whispered fiercely, "but you ain't called on to contradict 'em at the table when they don't. That boy's yo' comp'ny and if he wants to eat up the table cloth you let him, you hear?"

"He ain't company, Cal, he's just a Cunningham-"

"Hush your mouth! Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house's yo' comp'ny, and don't you let me catch you remarkin' on their ways like you was so high and mighty! Yo' folks might be better'n the Cunninghams but it don't count for nothin' the way you're disgracin' 'em—if you can't act fit to eat at the table you can just set here and eat in the kitchen!"

Calpurnia sent me through the swinging door to the diningroom with a stinging smack. See also: Calpurnia and Tom Robinson Neighboorhood Map To Explain The Minor Characters... Radely Place Boo And Nathan Radely Finchs Scout, Jem, Atticus, And Alexandria Finch Miss Rachel Dubose Mrs. Dubose And Black Helper And Dill Miss Stephanie And Mrs. Maudie after the fire Mrs. Maudie Mr. Avery Ewells Robert and Mayella Violet Ewell, and their other seven kdis Court House Jail Robisons Tom and His Wife Calpurnia Cunninghams Walter, Mr, Mrs, And Children Theme Two: Courage See also: Atticus, because even though Atticus know that he will not win the trail, he still proceeds with courage and bravery. "I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” Curious Friends Learned Theme Of True Courage Calpurnia and Zeebo Shows Jem true courage, and provides a role model. Shows Scout how to act more mature. Continously shows Atticus innocence Provides Scout with a motherly figure to look up to. Theme Three: Justice "She has committed no crime, she has merely broken a rigid and time-honored code of our society, a code so severe that whoever breaks it is hounded from our midst as unfit to live with. She is the victim of cruel poverty and ignorance, but I cannot pity her: she is white. She knew full well the enormity of her offense, but because her desires were stronger than the code she was breaking, she persisted in breaking it." (chp 20) See Tom Robison, because through the entire book, justice was not on Toms side, and he to conquer the justice system. Theme Four: Childhood Innocence "When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness' sake. But don't make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion quicker than adults, and evasion simply muddles 'em." (Chap 9) See also: Scout, because she uses her childhood disposition throughout the book. One major point was outside the jail when she made the angry mob turn away. Theme Five: Women and Femininity "I was not so sure, but Jem told me I was being a girl, that girls always imagined things, that's why other people hated them so, and if I started behaving like one I could just go off and find some to play with." (Chap 4) See Scout because all throughtout the book she struggles with her femininity, and becoming more lady like. The Fire At Maudie's shows that the fire melted the snowman into the mud underneath, symbolizing everyone is the same under the skin, black or white. Mayelle Ewells Flowers These show that deep down, she is actually capable of love and being happy despite her familes economic stance, and her struggles. The Mockingbird Tom Robinson's Innocence in a crime he did not commit, and how he was put to death which can be related to Atticus Finch's comment "Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit em, but remember its a sin to kill a mockingbird" Meaning it was also a sin to kill Tom Robinson. Jems Broken Arm Jems broken arm shows that he will forever be effected by what took place at this time in his life. The Gifts left in the tree These represent Boo's captivity and his innability to communicate with the outside world, even though he is not an evil being like everyone thinks. Atticus' Pocket Watch This watch symbolizes Jems coming of age, and the proud history of their family. When Jem became mauture enough, he got the pocket watch as a symbol of his newfound maturity.
