Jem and Scout lose their innocence and realize their society is corrupt and unjust.

overview of supporting evidence
Overview of Supporting Evidence
  • Point 1: Jem and Scout are at first innocent.
  • Point 2: Jem and Scout experience harsh realities.
  • Point 3: Scout and Jem realize their society is corrupt and complicated.
point 1 jem is at first innocent
Point 1: Jem is at first innocent.
  • Jem: “Wish Atticus would go play football and let me have a gun.” (43)
  • Jem has a very narrow understanding of what courage means. He thinks it has to do with fighting and being physical.
  • He later finds out that Ms. Dubose has more courage than any man with a gun.

Example:

Jem believes courage is being ‘macho’.

point 1 cont d scout is at first innocent
Point 1 cont’d: Scout is at first innocent.
  • Example: Scout embarrasses Walter about his excess use of syrup.
    • Scout: “He gone and drowned his dinner in syrup.” (43)
    • Scout doesn’t understand that Walter Cunningham doesn’t even have syrup at his house, and that’s why he’s having as much as he can.
    • She is ignorant of different financial classes. Calpurnia has to reprimand her for being rude to a guest. This teaches Scout how to empathize with others less fortunate.
point 2 jem experiences harsh reality
Point 2: Jem Experiences Harsh Reality
  • “Why did they have to do that, Atticus? The tree wasn’t dying.” (43)
  • Jem realizes that Mr. Radley wanted to keep Boo from communicating with the outside world and he witnesses that evil.

Example: Jem cries when they fill the tree hole with cement to prevent Boo from sharing gifts.

point 2 cont d scout experiences harsh reality
Point 2 cont’d: Scout Experiences Harsh Reality
  • Example: Scout witnesses Atticus in a dangerous situation at the jail cell.
    • Atticus: “Jem, take them home now.” Jem: “If we hadn’t been there, who knows what kind of trouble Atticus was facing.” (66)
    • At first, she doesn’t know why the men (mob) have gathered and innocently makes small talk.
    • She discovers that they were there to hurt Tom Robinson, and Atticus was going to try and stop them.
point 3 jem realizes his world is corrupt and justice is not so black and white
Point 3:Jem realizes his world is corrupt and justice is not so ‘black and white’.
  • “…” the crying quote (164)
  • Jem cries because he realizes that the justice system failed due to racism and bigotry.

Example: Atticus loses the Tom Robinson case because of racism.

point 3 cont d scout realizes her world is corrupt and justice is not so black and white
Point 3 (cont’d):Scout realizes her world is corrupt and justice is not so ‘black and white’.
  • Example: The kids are attacked by Mr. Ewell when they were walking home from the pageant.
    • Boo, a social outcast, saves the children from the recently deemed ‘innocent’ Mr. Ewell by killing Mr. Ewell. Scout compares punishing Boo to being like “killing a mockingbird” (188)
    • They now realizes that not all people are what they appear to be (Ewell a lying, violent man; Boo not a monster.) and that the system is not always juste.
