This contains spoilers on the book To Kill a Mockingbird.
I didn’t write a post when I finished the book because I knew that there would be a fishbowl soon after. We have already started a new theme so this may be my last or second last post on IHub reads. We also had a final essay on our books. I chose this as my topic:
2) Theme: Alienation
Writers often highlight the values of a culture or a society by using characters that are alienated from that culture or society because of gender, race, class, or creed. Show how that character’s alienation reveals the surrounding society’s assumptions or moral values. (Avoid plot summary)
I believe that Without characters like the Finches, The town of Macomb would seem like any regular town (Copied directly from my essay).
I like this topic because it works for both the main characters, and the rest of society.
The question for the FishBowl was:
Discuss law as it is represented in To Kill A Mockingbird. What power and limitations exist within the legal system according to Atticus, Jem, and Scout? Are justice and fairness conflicting concepts in “To Kill a Mockingbird”?
My thesis for the FishBowl discussion was:
“In this book, Justice is not fair. But the majority believe that it is”
Obviously what happened in the court to Tom Robinson was not fair. But there are still people who believe that what happened was fair.
Sorry for the longer post, Thanks for reading :3.
