To Kill a Mockingbird: Nell Harper Lee
Transcript of To Kill a Mockingbird: Nell Harper Lee
Atticus Finch is based on Lee's father, Amasa Coleman Lee.
Lee's childhood friend Truman Capote was the inspiration for Dill's character.
Tom Robinson is Lee's portrayal of the Scottsboro boys. Tom Robinson's Trial When Harper Lee was five years old, she witnessed the Scottsboro Boys' trial in which nine young black men were accused of raping two white woman.
This trial deeply affected Lee and became the basis of the case of Tom Robinson in the book.
Another trial, one of a man and his son accused of murder, also helped to shape the Robinson case because like in this case, Atticus loses the trial. Works Cited Anderson, Nancy G. "Harper Lee."
