Transcript of To Kill A Mockingbird

Boo Radley Valiant/Gallant Sly/Furtive “’Miss Stephanie Crawford said she woke up in the middle of the night one time and saw him looking straight through the window at her… said his head was like a skull lookin’ at her.’ (Jem)” Page 13 To Kill A Mockingbird A Visual Essay Boo Radley Is: Shy
Furtive Shy/Introverted “The doors of the Radley house were closed on weekdays as well as Sundays, and Mr. Radley’s boy was not seen again for fifteen years.” Page 10 Shy/Introverted “’To my way of thinkin’, Mr. Finch, taking the one man who’s done you and this town a great service an’ draggin’ him with his shy ways into the limelight – to me, that’s a sin.’ (Mr. Heck Tate)” Page 276
“’You can pet him, Mr. Arthur, he’s asleep. You couldn’t if he was awake though, he wouldn’t let you…’ (Scout) I found myself explaining. ‘Go ahead.’ Boo’s hand hovered over Jem’s head. ‘Go on, sir, he’s asleep.’ His hand came down lightly on Jem’s hair” Page 278 Shy/Introverted Valiant/Gallant “He [Boo] gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives.” page 278 “I looked down and found myself clutching a brown woolen blanket I was wearing around my shoulders, squaw-fashion.” Page 71 Valiant/Gallant "I remember Arthur Radley when he was a boy. He always spoke nicely to me, no matter what folks said he did. Spoke as nicely as he knew how. (Miss Maudie)" Page 46 Sly/Furtive “’Dear sir,’ said Jem. ‘We appreciate the-no, we appreciate everything which you have put into the tree for us, Yours very truly, Jeremy Atticus Finch.’” Page 62 Sly/Furtive Thank You! Alex Levine
Skyler Hope “’Boo Radley. You were so busy looking at the fire you didn’t know it when he put the blanket around you’ (Atticus)” Page 72

Microsoft PowerPoint
YouTube.com By: Boo Radley Symbolizes: Prejudice
A Mockingbird
Curiosity Prejudice Boo radley symbolizes prejudice because the citizens of Maycomb judge him even though many of them have never met him. He is not the creeper that Scout makes him out to be, but no one knows that. He is just judged because he is different.
"Inside the house lived a malevolent phantom." Page 8 Curiosity A Mockingbird Boo has always been a curiosity to Jem, Scout, and Dill. They spend their summers fantacizing about what he does, how he looks, and how to get him to come out. Living in a small town in lower Alabama, the many people there are not accustomed to people who aren't like them. They are all curious about what Boo is like and why it is not like them. No one is sure why he does what he does.
"The shutters and doors of the Radley house were closed on Sundays, another thing alien to Maycomb's ways..." Page 9 A Mockingbird Boo Radley is a mockingbird because he is innocent. "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corn cribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." Pg 90 A Mockingbird Boo has not done any of the things accused of him by the neighbors. As Miss Maudie says,
"Thats three fourths colored folk and one fourth Stephanie Crawford!" By: Skyler Hope and Alex Levine Boo Radley Is: Shy/Introverted Boo is more of a recluse than a social person. He stays and keeps vigil in his house and denies any visitors, perpetual or otherwise. Maybe he doesnt want to come out, as Dill expresses one night with Scout, maybe he can't come out, because Mr. Nathan Radley won't let him, or, even, because maybe he's dead. Valient/Gallant People think that Boo Radley is a crazy, feral creep. In truth, he is valient and gallant. He was always polite. He even saved Jem and Scout's lives. Sly/Furtive Jem believes that Boo isn't allowed to leave his house, thanks to Mr. Nathan, yet he still manages to get out. He somehow manages to leave Jem and Scout gifts in his tree. He somehow manages to put a blanket around Scout at the fire. And he somehow manages to go out at night and watch people through their windows. yolo yolo yolo
