Storyboard Text

  • To Kill a Mockingbird describes the life of Scout Finch and her brother Jem. While being accompanied by their friend Dill, Scout and Jem decide to spy on their private neighbor, Boo Radley. The attorney father of Scout and Jem, Atticus Finch, defends Tom Robinson, an African-American male who was falsely accused of raping Mayella Ewell, a Caucasian female. Tom is convicted of rape and is killed when he tries to escape from his wrongful imprisonment. Bob Ewell, the father of Mayella, tries to kill Scout and Jem on Halloween while they were on their way home from school. Out of nowhere, Boo Radley saves the children, which results in Bob being killed.
  • There is no question in my mind that my client, Tom Robinson, has not commited a crime!
  • To Kill a Mockingbird is written in first-person from the perspective of Scout Finch.
  • The mockingbird is the main symbol in this novel. The mockingbird represents innocence, specifically the innocence of our main character and other characters in the novel. Another symbol in To Kill a Mockingbird is red geraniums. Red geraniums represent the good that exists in all people, no matter how corrupted a person may be.
  • One of the main themes in To Kill a Mockingbird is how good and evil not only coexist in the world but also how good and evil coexist within the same person. Another theme in To Kill a Mockingbird involves growing up and seeing the world for what it truly is. Characters Scout and Gem turn from innocents who see nothing but good in the world at the beginning of the story, to more balanced and mature characters who acknowledge that good exists alongside evil near the end of the story.
  • Scout Finch, our protagonist, starts out as an innocent character who believes in the basic goodness of humanity. As the story progresses, however, she realizes that good coexists with evil.
  • I've learned that good can not ever, and will not ever exist without some evil.
