Mrs Dubouse -"What are you doing in those overalls? You should be in a dress and camisole young lady!
Court House Trial "People generally see what they look for and hear what they listen for"
Tim Johnson "It was like watching Atticus walk into the street, raise a rifle to his shoulder and pull the trigger, but watching all the time knowing the gun was empty".
This quote illustrates the harsh sexism which was encouraged in 1930's Alabama, and depicts a sense of immorality, which is conveyed by the protagonist (in this specific case) Mrs Dubouse.
Atticus 'You never really understand a person, until you consider things from his point of view. Until you climb into his skin and walk around it"
The above quote characterises the prejudice and ignorant society, which single handedly- decide for or against controversial ideas which are taken into small and bigoted minds.
To Kill A Mockingbird " Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird"
Scout interprets the unsuccessful trial towards Atticus shooting down Tim Johnson. Through the use of foreshadowing, this comparison resembles fear and disaster, as both behaviours were exhibited during each complication- and are core elements that stem off of a discriminatory society.
Boo Radley "When peoples Azalea's froze in a cold snap, it was because he breathed on them".
Personification and Hyperbole: Attiucs's lasting words are often referred to throughout the book, since he explains that discriminative judgement is often thrown around and can easily misguide someone towards a racist and bigotry path. An unfortunate consequence which is displayed and revolves itself throughout the novel quite regularly. At a young age, Scout grasps the concept of empathy and compassion towards others, regardless of their situation or race.
Hyperbole: Mockingbirds represent peace and justice. However, to their unfortunate dismay, they're always held accountable for various situations which impact them in a negative way throughout the novel. Although they continue to prove their innocence and virtue, society continuously insists on heaving them into an isolated pit of devastation and hopelessness. They are regularly compared towards Black Africans whom live amongst a Xenophobic and dictorial society.
This technique uses a hyperbole in order to emphasise the childlike perception both Jem and Scout visualise, when referring to Boo Radley. Their significant shift of opinion throughout the novel clearly identifies the maturity and obvious understanding/respect both children direct towards Boo.
