This storyboard does not have a description.
This is Arthur a.k.a Boo Radley. He is a very quiet kid that is forced to stay at home. His parents think he is crazy and all the other kids make fun of him. Especially his neighbors Jem and Scout Finch and their friend Dill. (Seen as the antagonist with an indirect characterization)
Jem: Did you hear about that Boo Radley kid? Dill: Yeah, I hear that he stabbed his dad in the leg with a scissors. Scout: Everyone's told me that he is half monster and half human. Also, apparently he is 6'5" and has really gross teeth.
People's views on Boo are not very nice. Although this is true peoples views do change. They start to learn to accept everyone no matter how much they differ from how you are. Scout, Jem, and Dill mature and start to see that making fun of people who are different isn't okay.
I said that the theme of "To Kill a Mockingbird" is whether or not people are good or evil. This is shown through Arthur because he is seen to be this awful monster of a human that everyone fears and then that changes. People start to accept him and realize that he isn't awful.
"He was still leaning against the wall. He had been leaning against the wall when I came into the room, his arms down and across his chest. As I pointed he brought his arms down and pressed the palms of his hands agains the wall. They were white hands, sickly white hands that had never seen the sun, so white they stood out garishly against the dull cream wall in the dim light of Jem's room...His face was as white as his hands, but for a shadow on his jutting chin. His cheeks were thin to hollowness; his mouth was wide; there were shallow, almost delicate indentations at his temples, and his grey eyes were so colorless I thought he was blind...as I gazed at him in wonder the tension slowly drained from his face. His lips parted into a timid smile, and our neighbor's image blurred with my sudden tears." (Lee 270) This shows how Scout begins to understand and accept Boo. It also shows how she starts to see him as a friend rather than just an awful person that seems to almost be a myth.
