Essay title: Character Analysis

Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird is written from the eyes of a little girl growing up in the old, racist county of Maycomb, Alabama. Throughout the story you learn a lot about Scout and you watch her grow and mature into a young lady.

Scout is a very unusual little girl, both in her own qualities and in her social position. She is very intelligent, she learns to read before ever beginning school. She is very confident in her abilities, she fights boys without any fear. She is ultimately good, she always has the best intentions in mind. And she is a tomboy growing up in the very old fashioned, prim and proper, world of Maycomb.

It’s easy to see that she is the person she is because of the way Atticus has raised her. Probably the most important thing he taught her was to have a sense of individuality. Scout runs around with her brother Jem, and good friend Dill. They climb trees and spend whole summers trying to lure Boo Radley out of his house. She wears overalls and is always covered in dirt.
