Harper Lee’s book To Kill a Mockingbird” uses a Mockingbird to symbolize the character of Tom Robinson and Boo Read eye as well as satirized the racism within the book. A big central idea behind the title To Kill a Mockingbird is the idea how mocking seabirds do no harm and only sings sweet songs and that you should never kill a mocking bird because it does is innocent and evil. This is supported when Attic’s said to Gem one day, “I’d RA there you shot at tin cans in the backyard, but I know you’ll go after birds.
Shoot all the bluebags you want, if you can hither, but remember i?s a sin to kill a mockingbird. Tom would be coins Deere a symbol of a mockingbird because he was a kind man who harmed no one. On many coco Asians he helped Male with different chores around her house. His intentions were good; he meant no one harm. He only wanted to be kind and helpful. A quote supporting this is whew n he is on trial and he says ” Looks like she didn’t have nobody to help her.
I felt right sorry for h ere. She seemed… ” Mockingbirds only do good and that was what Tom Robin moons was doing was f lending bad for Male and only helping her, He acted like a Mockingbird and never raped he r, and he could to have because his left arm got crippled by a cotton mill a long time ago. As idly it was the sass’s and racism was strong and alive and Alabama and even with the trial eel Nanning towards Tom Robinsons favor he was still convicted of murder and sentenced to dead h.
Harper Lee used Tom Robinson to symbolize a Mockingbird and how he was innocent and only did good and no harm and he was accused and he was sentenced to death. Harper Lee also uses Boo Raddled to symbolize a Mockingbird as well. In the b ask “To Kill a Mockingbird” Arthur Boo Raddled as seen through the eyes of Scout and J me is a scary old evil monster who they get a thrill of telling stories out of, he is a scapegoat for the town’s problems and is seen as crazy and dangerous for when he was falsely accuse d of stabbing his father with scissors.
But as we see throughout the story this is far from the try HTH and Boo Raddled is actually a innocent kind man who even leaves gifts for scout and gem. Like Miss Muddies definition of the mockingbird “They don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. ” Boo was a innocent child who was hurt by his father just like a innocent mockingbird b Ewing harmed only by an evil person. This event caused him to realize the evil in society and is who at kept him in his house. Scout and Gem Start understanding why he never comes out after the t Arial stating “Scout, think I’m beginning to understand something. Hind I’m beginning to understand and why Boo Reader’s stayed shut up in the house all this time… It’s because he wants to SST ay inside. ” This is the moment when Scout and Gem realize and see the true malicious ways of s society and people in the world, it goes back to the idea that only a mean truly evil person would ha arm an innocent mockingbird, in this case it was Tom Robinson. Later in the story when Bob E well comes for revenge and tries to kill scout BOO Raddled being the Mockingbird he is does go do and prevents Bob’s attack and kills him.
Heck Tate knows what happens and knows that Boo o killed Lowell but refuses to do so because he is a man who honors the idea of not to kill a mock kingbird in this case Boo being the Mockingbird was only doing good and saving Scout from the eve IL man Bob Lowell. Scout later realizes that Boo Raddled symbolizes a Mockingbird when Attic’s as KS her why they are not sending Boo Raddled to court, and she says “Well, it’d be sort of like shoo tin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?
Scout learns and see as Tom Robinson a mocking rd is hurt by an evil man Bob Lowell, and later realizes that Boo Raddled was only doing good an d protecting scout from the evil Bob Lowell, and by not convicting him is like not hurting a mocking gibed. Harper Lee also uses symbolism of the mockingbird as a satire to racism in the e story as well as in general. As I explained in the beginning the whole idea of not hurting g a mockingbird because they represent pure innocence is a well known saying in Alabama.
An d as I explained earlier in the book Tom Robinson represents the idea off mockingbird and most of the black immunity is much like a mockingbird in the book as well. Harper Lee uses c heaper 13 to introduce the black community to the reader and emphasizes the goodness a ND solidarity of the black community. Even after the trial after Tom Robinson lost, Attic’s receive d many gifts of food from the black community this is another example of the black communion ties kindness.
Tom Robinson as well as many other black people are hurt and discriminated, eve n though they do no harm. Yet many white folks of the time, and their sense of white superiority, d id not see the connection between them hurting or discriminating against blacks to the Sam idea as harming a mockingbird. And Harper Lee uses several quotes in the book to show this co injection and one of them being when scout says, ” Mr.. Underworld didn’t talk about miscarriage SE Of justice, he was writing so children could understand.
Mr.. Underworld simply figured it w as a sin to kill cripples, be they standing, sitting, or escaping. He likened Tom’s death to the senseless slaughter of songbirds by hunters and children, and Macomb thought he was trying to write an editorial poetical enough to be reprinted in The Montgomery Advertiser. ” Harper Lee u sees Scout to titrate the society of the time, how a little girl sees Tom Robinson as innocent , while most of white society’s prejudice and racism blinds them, this is a huge message of the e book.

The idea of killing a mockingbird within the book is a very important to the comps emission and understanding of the book.
