Bravery

"Bravery takes many forms in To Kill A Mockingbird. Atticus is brave to defend a black man. He also is brave in the face of danger, both when he kills the rabid dog with a single shot and when facing the men outside the jailhouse. Atticus reminds Scout to be brave and prevent herself from fighting those who talk about her or her family. The children believe to be brave when approaching the Radley house early in the book. Atticus holds up Mrs. Dubose as the highest definition of bravery, as she fights against her addiction even when she knows she will die in the process. Finally, Bob Ewell represents a shame of cowardness, as he lies in the courtroom to protect himself and resorts to attacking children in the darkness in order to make himself feel more of a man."
