Transcript of To Kill a Mockingbird- Verbal-Visual Essay

By: Karina Henry To Kill a Mocking bird- Verbal-Visual Essay The definition of my theme Bravery means someone who can step out of their comfort zone without any fear. Taking a leap of faith without knowing the consequences. For example a firefighter or police officer that attends a call may have no idea of the outcome or what may happen, yet they still do. The mere thought of the unknown may scare anyone, however these heroes are doing their jobs with bravery and selflessness. The reason I chose this theme was because it was a very bold representation and prominent idea throughout the book "To Kill a Mockingbird". Boo Radley Bravery I chose a jack in the box as a visual representation for Boo Radley. I chose this representation because throughout the novel Boo was always hidden in his house away from everything and everyone. In the end when Boo was needed the most to help Jem and Scout when they were being attacked by Bob Ewell, he was there, and when no one expected it. He came out of his house and showed himself who he really was which is a kind, thoughtful person. Just like a jack-in-the-box no one knows what it looks like until is it used for something, and when it is used everyone know who it really is. "The man who brought Jem in was standing in a corner, leaning against the wall. He was a country man I did not know. He had probably been at the pageant, and was in the vicinity when in happened. He must of heard our screams and come running" (Lee 356). This tells us that Scout did not know what Boo looked like, nor acted like. He was a usual person that came to save Scout and Jem's life. Bob Ewell The visual interpretation of Bob Ewell that I chose was Darth Vader. I chose Darth Vader because he has two sides to him, just as Bob does. Bob sees himself as a hero who is charging Tom Robinson so that it's safe for the rest of the neighborhood, but what he really is, is a low life who rather spend his money on alcohol than food for his family. "...My Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he'd get him if it took the rest of his life" (Lee 290). Bob only shows his true colours when he's around a minimal amount of people so that no one actually see's him, and he doesn't sell his cover. Atticus Finch I chose the game Jenga to represent Atticus Finch. The reasoning for my choice is because in the novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" everyone was expecting the defendant Bob Ewell to be charged with raping his daughter, but in the end Tom Robinson was accused, this is when the whole case fell apart just like the jenga pieces when you take one out. Every piece is taken so carefully just like every detail in a case is brought out. "Then he left the courtroom, but not by his usual exit. He must of wanted to go home the short way, because he walked quickly down the middle aisle, toward the south exit. I followed the top of his head as he made his way to the door. He did not look up" (Lee 282-283). Seeing the way Atticus walked down the aisle, being reserved and shy of what just happened, he seemed a little bit ashamed and shocked of what just happened. Fighting as hard as he could, Atticus couldn't of done anything more to bring Bob Ewell down. Little Chuck Little I chose a sparkler for a visual representation of Little Chuck Little because even though this scene is so little in the book, it quickly give us a outlook of who Little Chuck Little is. He shows us that he can light up, and stand up to people who are bigger than him, and then just leave, just like the sparkler dies down. "Little Chuck’s right hand went to his pocket. 'Watch your step, Burris,' he said. 'I’d soon’s kill you as look at you. Now go home.' Burris seemed to be afraid of a child half his height, and Miss Caroline took advantage of his indecision: 'Burris, go home. If you don’t I’ll call the principal,' she said. 'I’ll have to report this, anyway.' The boy snorted and slouched leisurely to the door'" (Lee 36-37). In such a short time Little Chuck shows us that he's not afraid to stand up to and older, taller kid. Bravery Thank you for reading!
