From prejudice and segregation due to race and class to societies beliefs to the right and wrong.
The major theme which runs through out this novel is courage.
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” To accomplish anything, one must overcome his fears.
Atticus Finch thinks courage is to know that you are going to lose, but continue follow through the entire way.
Jem had always regarded her as an utterly revolting person who was barely fit to be called a lady.
He never considered her as his father’s role model or the bravest women his father had ever known.Atticus also demonstrates this by never being let down by the racist and rude comments he was getting.Atticus follows his sense of truth and righteousness to follow the right path, and even though the case had no signs of winning in sight, he never gave up and followed through.I will do this by analysing two extracts which represent the courage shown in this book. Dubose shocked Jem as he had no thought to the pain Mrs.Dubose inflected upon her body as she tried desperately to rid herself of her morphine addiction.His mindset is to never give up, even when you know and everyone else knows you are not going to succeed at what you are doing.I agree with Atticus Finch’s definition of courage of that even though all odds are against you, you have to follow through and persevere.Real courage is when you fight for what is right regardless of whether Furthermore, when Atticus speaks about his case and how it will affect him personally, he remarks, “No matter what anybody says to you, don’t let ‘em get your goat” (76).Atticus teaches Jem and Scout a life lesson that you should not take anyone’s remarks or comments towards you personally and let it affect who you are.Courage is the ability to do something that frightens one.Nelson Mandela once said, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.
