Killing the Mockingbird is both considered a novel and a book to teach children from a young child’s perspective, but it also provides adults with many life lessons in it. The good memories of the book “Kill Mockingbird” will always remain in me as a lesson on how to grow and be a good person.
Literature brings a lot of good values and mission to life, Kill Mockingbird has hit me most of the arrows, not to mention the large but sparse net that is hard to reach in the fifties in the South of America – a time of greatest racism. It is the eternal work of victims that has always been a plus for Harper Lee’s first literary novel in me.
The story of a “mockingbird” is figuratively speaking about young Scout and his brother Jem whose father was named Atticus in the town of Maycomb, Alabama, USA in the 1930s.
The whole book is the summers and school-time days of Scout, my brother Jem, my friend Dill once a summer. The world of three innocent children contrasts and touches the adults around them, with a father, an uncle, Aunt Maudie, a mysterious neighbor Boo Radley, and a school teacher named Caroline.
In daily conversation, the young Scout always asked her father Atticus about the strange things around her. Why did the neighbor Boo Radley never continue with them, why did the teacher make Scout not learn to read at home, why did Scout need to “compromise”, not evaluate you? If you have a family and your children always ask you questions like that, will you answer them well?
Throughout the book, I put myself in the world of a child’s hesitation, between all the choices of what is bad, or good, what are the people around them doing, and how to treat them. .
Atticus, a character thought to be Harper Lee’s author, drew from the image of her lawyer father, this psychological father who did not seek to color the life with a beautiful, pure, artificial appearance. parents still try to take care of their children.
Instead, he discussed matters with the children, he made commitments, recounted their promises, and he set an example of his promises.
Although the Atticus family was not rich, his wife died soon, but Atticus’s father taught step by step more mature children by the explanations and responsibilities he gave to Scout and his brother Jem.
As a child, Scout always wanted to skip school because he was repeatedly punished by his teacher Caroline and told him to teach it wrong, Atticus explained: “If you learn a simple way, Scout, you will be much more comfortable. with all kinds of people. I will never really understand a person until I consider everything from that person’s perspective … ”
The problems that Atticus faced every day were just as complex as the other fathers. Stubborn, aggressive men with neighbors, Scout wants to skip school, fight with friends, with questions never being the end. But gradually, during such a journey, I realized that Scout had used its own clear prism, fitted Atticus’ s words, creating a picture of a world that had just been more frank. trouble, no less than adults imagine and think.
The book is about how to cope with difficulties and solve them in life
The second highlight of the book is when Atticus’s father accepted to be a defense lawyer for a black man named Tom Robinson, in the case he was convicted of raping the Ewell daughter (a white person). The two brothers Scout – Jem was forced to catch so many cruel words from those around them about their father being a lawyer “love the nigger”.
Atticus ‘s life became increasingly stifling, and also here, Atticus’ shared with Scout his choice to fight against all to protect a discriminated Negro in the community. He said, “But before I can live with others I should live with myself. For one thing that doesn’t obey the principle most, it’s the human conscience. ”
Atticus is a typical example of fathers and mothers who know how to teach their children very well in the United States. He was busy all day working as a lawyer and hardly had much time for his clever children. Still, Jem and Scout were still better kids. Atticus told Jem, “Courage is when I know I will fail before I start but I still start and I pursue him to the end no matter what happens” and leave the boy behind. Ms Dubose’s four-sided white camellia thoughts. He gave no more explanation, not leading Jem to start anything for as long as possible in any possible detail of his life. He was just there, not counting him and his sister, making his work: Start, pursue and not give up the “death case” of black named Tom Robinson.
