Themes
Racism does not affect one being, but the community around him/her.
"To Maycomb, Tom's death was typical. Typical of a nigger to cut and run. Typical of a nigger's mentality to have no plan, no thought for the future, just run blind first chance he saw" (PG 322).

This shows that the death of Tom Robinson was normal in the community of Maycomb. Racism made it evident that even though Tom was not guilty, he still is because he is black.
Don't judge a book by it's cover.
"Just shows you, that Robinson boy was legally married, they say he kept himself clean, went to church and all that, but when it come down to the line the veneer's mighty thin. Nigger always comes out in em'" (PG 322).

A large portion of the Maycomb society judged Tom Robinson by his skin tone. While the others knew him from the inside, for example, Link Deas.
This presents the fact that a lot of people in the community are very judgmental.
Symbols
Roly-Poly
- The roly-poly bug symbolizes the black community. In Maycomb, the black community is very small and they seek protection when being criticized.
Jem wanting to smash the roly-poly bug shares the same idea of a white human killing a black human.

Calpurnia
- In this story Calpurnia isn't just Finch's cook. She represents a connection between the white and black people of Maycomb. She easily interacts with the Finch's and the black community, for she is helping Atticus with the case too. Furthermore, she is the symbol of duality. She lives both a life a white human being and a black human being. She lives with the Finch's and goes to the black community for church. She has the literature of a white person, while still being able to communicate well with the black society.
Literary Devices
Repetition
- "To Maycomb, Tom's death was
typical
.
Typical
of a nigger to cut and run.
Typical
of a nigger's mentality to have no plan, no thought for the future, just run blind first chance he saw" (PG 322).
Repeats the word "typical" to show how typical it is for a black man to do these things.
Simile
- "
Jem
was the one who was getting more
like a girl
everyday, not I" (PG 320).
Comparing Jem to a girl using like to present the fact that Scout thinks he is becoming very weak.
Foreshadowing
- "... that Mr. Ewell said it made one down and about two more to go" (PG 323).
Harper Lee is giving us a foreshadow on what will happen later on in the story.
