    To Kill A Mockingbird Help? [+fullrep, +np?]

    Plus I've gotta rep a few more people before I can rep the lovely @katzes, I owe her.

    Anyway I've got an essay to write in English class tomorrow for the whole week, here's the topic:

    How does Harper Lee use the significance of the title to convey a positive message to her readers?

    Here is my lead and thesis:

    An empathic heart and a will to act courageously is required in order for change to happen. The contextual mockingbirds in Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird display the importance of action and sacrifice needed to evoke positive development in a prejudiced society.


    If you really cared, I could show you what I have so far. I have all the criterion done except the last one, and my final criterion is Arthur Radley. However, I have NO idea how to spin a positive message onto his story, it's just so depressing lol. Any suggestions would be great I may reward some np, it's just a side thing lol

    I've raided the online sources so I'll know if you've copied and pasted
    I don't really expect anything AWESOME since this is fuzzy for most of you guys, but I'm desperate to get notes on this guy since I can't bring any more after Monday


    I just dont understand in general how the cruelty of mistreating innocent people relays a positive message so thats probably my problem

    You should've posted this yesterday or earlier. I'd help, but am running out to handle my own school problems now.

    Sorry, Poo stink.

    To Kill a Mockingbird wasn't one of the required readings for my HS, so I don't have a copy of it handy to help you here and it's been forever since I've read it. I'm totally available to try and help you if you'd like, though.

    Anyways, I pulled up some articles. Radley was the introverted man who preferred to remain in seclusion inside his house, right? Most articles I'm reading describe him as the quintessential mockingbird of the story - mockingbirds are presented in the book as a symbol of innocence and purity of heart, and Boo's self-imposed exile is in fact a result of his dissatisfaction with the corruption of the outside world around him. The positivity in the title refers to the fact that his courageous actions in saving the children are covered up by the townspeople because publicizing them would put Boo out of his comfort zone. He's a hermit, and he only stepped out of his comfort zone to help the children based on his moral principles; thus, to flaunt the virtuosity of his actions would go against his quiet, modest nature. According to Finch, to "kill a mockingbird" is a crime - and by leaving Boo alone in peace, they're protecting him.
