To Kill A Mockingbird CE
In \'To Kill a Mockinbird\' by Harper Lee, I believe that the title of the novel was very significant. It is significant due to the fact that the word \'Mockingbird\' was symbolic for the innocence, security and happiness in the novel.
The Mockingbird is a symbol for innocence as it does not harm anyone. This is exposed in the novel when Scout is about to shoot the Mockingbird and Atticus halts him.
It is also a symbol for security and happiness. In the novel, when the mockingbird is singing everything is okay and everyone is happy. When it is not singing it is significant. The atmosphere is tense. Two examples of this from the novel are the rabid dog in the street (Part 1) and the court case (Part 2)
In the novel some of the characters are like mockingbirds. Tom Robinson was one of these characters as he was an innocent figure, he didn\'t harm anyone and he didn\'t hurt Mayella. Tom Robinson also brings in the theme of prejudice as he is black and he is treated differently to everyone else. Another character that is like a mockingbird was Boo Radley, he was also innocent, he didn\'t harm anyone and he saved Scout & Jem near the end of the novel. Boo Radley also had to be protected like a Mockingbird (because he didn\'t harm anyone).
The entire title in the novel means \'To Destroy Innocence\'. At the end of the novel Scout realises that Tom Robinson is a \'Mockingbird\' and she says it\'d be sort of like killing a mockingbird.
