It is Scout that introduces us to Maycomb, Alabama. “Maycomb was an old town . . . somehow, it was hotter then . . . men’s stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning. A day was twenty-four hours long but seemed longer. There was no hurry, for there was nowhere to go, nothing to buy and no money to buy it with”. Through Scout’s eyes the reader will meet such characters as Dill Harris, the summer ward and confederate to Scout and Jem. The faded Southern bell, Mrs. Dubose. You will be drawn to the mystery of Boo Radley, the “malevolent phantom” and his curious relationship with the children.
But mostly this is the story of Atticus Finch and the trial of Tom Robinson, a black man accused of the rape of a white woman. The story of a father of gentle kindness, yet a man of unyielding ethics and moral character, pitted against the racial hatred that boils to the surface in a small southern town. Through the eyes of a child, Harper Lee lays bare the dark soul of prejudice and ignorance while at the same time dispassionately acknowledging its existence. Through the telling of the story the reader comes to understand both the good and evil that reside in us, and finally the nobility of spirit that leaves the most lasting impression. We are left enriched.
Compelling, thought provoking, poignant.
Sympathetic , emotional and profoundly moving , To Kill a Mockingbird seethes to the bases of human conduct -to blamelessness and experience, generosity and savagery , love and scorn, puerility and tenderness. Presently with more than 25 million copies sold in print and translated in ten languages , this territorial story by a youthful Alabama lady claims all inclusive bids. Harper Lee constantly thought of her book to be a straightforward love story . Today it is viewed as a gem of American Literature. Summing up from cover to cover " Lawyers , I suppose were children once" --Charles Lamb to the last sentence " He would be there all night , and he would be there when Jem waked up in the morning" says it all .
