Transcript of Symbolism

Symbolism found in To Kill A Mockingbird The knot hole filled with gifts. The knot hole showed friendship
between the children and Boo Radley. The snowman made of dirt and snow. The black and white snowman proves that when the Blacks and Whites come together, good things happen. The fire at Miss Maudie's house This shows the destruction and the rebirth. The flower's at Miss Maudies after the fire. This shows that there's joy in life, and hope
that good things can happen. Boo Radley covering children with the blanket. This symbolizes how Boo Radley isn't as
mean or dangerous as the town thinks he is. By: Jess Decarie, Casey Oldendorf, Lauren Creamer, Erick Chica The Rabid dog in the street This shows fear and tension in Maycomb County. "Jem let me do the honors: I pulled out two small images carved in soap. One was the figure of a boy, the other wore a crude dress" (80). "When we had five baskets of earth and two baskets of snow, Jem said we were ready to begin" (88). "'Boo Radley. You were so busy looking at the fire you didn't know it when he put the blanket around you'" (72). "My stomach turned to water and I nearly threw up when Jem held out the blanket and crept toward me. 'He sneaked out of the house-- turn 'round-- sneaked up, an' went like this'" (72). "Calpurnia's message had been received by
the neighborhood. Every wood door within
our range of vision was closed tight. We saw
no trace of Tim Johnson" (124). "Miss Maudie's tin roof quelled the flames. Roaring, the house collapsed; fire gushed everywhere, followed by a flurry of blankets from men on top of the adjacent houses, beating out sparks and burning chunks of wood" (94). "Miss Maudie looked around, and the shadow of her old grin crossed her face. 'Always wanted a smaller house, Jem Finch. Gives me more yard. Just think, I'll have more room for my azaleas now'" (97).
