"You'll never understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."
Created by: Haley Ritchie To Kill A Mockingbird by Horton Foote Character Analysis of Atticus
Effect On Others
Atticus is very wise and not to judge someone unless you've been in their shoes. On Page 43 Atticus says "I am simply defending a negro" proving that Atticus doesn't care what color you are. He'll do what's right no matter who will hate him for it.
Atticus is very intelligent and knows stuff even if someone doesn't directly come out and tell him. Like, the night he was going out to guard Tom. Nobody told Atticus those mob of men were going to be outside Tom's cell, he knew someone would try to kill Tom.
Atticus stays outside Tom's cell all night.
He was informing Scout that he didn't want her in trouble. Scout didn't fight anyone after that either. People love and respect him, just like when he fixed the issue with Mrs. Dubose, he simply complimented her flowers to fix her attitude towards Scout.
Don't fight, no matter what anyone says.
Atticus is a very understanding person, he lets Mr. Cunningham pay his debt with hickory nuts. He knows Mr. Cunningham is poor, and wanted to help. On page 38 Atticus shocked his children when he shot the dog that had rabies: right between the eyes.
Atticus Walter Cunningham is here to pay you some hickory nuts!
Overall, Atticus is a very caring person who loves his kids and looks out for other people. He always accepts hard tasks that nobody else wants to take, like taking the Tom Robinson case. He also protects his children. He's an educated man who doesn't judge. He's the person that is there for you in your time of need.
