To Kill a Mockingbird

Atticus Finch, a prominent lawyer from Alabama, has to defend an African American man accused of rape. Sadly, in Alabama in 1935, this isn't an easy thing to do. Told through the view of Atticus's daughter, Jean Louise (Scout) Finch, Atticus must face a difficult of challenges: proving the innocence of a man society would never deem innocent.

Quote from To Kill a Mockingbird

¨Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win." pg. 76

Precept

"People of character do the right thing even if no one else does, not because they think it will change the world but because they refuse to be changed by the world."

Conflict: Man vs. Society

In 1935, Alabama was a place full of racial stereotyping and prejudice. Atticus, who believes everyone should be treated equally, must defend an African American. He might have to go against society's beliefs to do so, but he isn't going to give up that easily.
