Symbolism in To Kill a Mockingbird?

Mockingbirds: Mockingbirds are loud and incessant vocalists, and there song can be heard throughout the day and well into the night. Mockingbirds sing all day long and does nothing but singing, that was why Atticus said that it was a sin to kill a mockingbird. Bluejays: Blue jays are very territorial. They would often chase cats, dogs and even humans who go near their nests and feeding areas. The aggressive behavior of blue jays turns off many backyard birders. Being large and noisy, they also eat a lot and are very domineering. They can even steal the food of other birds. This was also the reason why Atticus allowed the children to shoot "as many bluejays as they want". Rabbit Tobacco: Leaves are slightly drooping; alternate on the stem; nearly linear and twisted; tapers to the tip with sides less than equal ; leaf base is wedge-shaped; sometimes spreads to right angles from the stem. It was found all over on the porch of the Boo Radley house and this tells us that the Radley's place was gloomy and seldom has visitors and this is a form of discrimination showing that the people were afraid of the Radleys due to the rumours. White Camellia: Although the Camellia cannot survive in extremely cold climates, many hybrid varieties are grown that can survive in these climatic conditions. a symbol of trust and braveness.The white camellia represents purity, and it is contradictory to the way Mrs. Dubose had acted. Mrs. Dubose, in people's eyes, is a mean old lady who scolds randomly. But in fact, she likes a flower that is pure. The camellia represents being brave. Camellia can survive hot, climatic conditions, which shows that Mrs. Dubose was a kind, brave, yet pure lady deep in her heart. Oak tree: It could be representing how Boo had an emptiness inside of him that made him feel detached, but offering items in the tree was like offering his trust to these kids. He was probably sharing his past by giving them the medal and the stopwatch. When Mr. Radley covered it up and saying it was dying (even though it wasn't) was like him blocking off Boo from the world and saying that he was old and dying. Azaleas: When Jem was destroying the azaleas in Mrs. Dubose's yard, but only the white ones. The colored ones were left alone. This could represent how he was against the racism in Maycomb and was fighting for the colored people. Geraniums: Ms. Maudie had beautiful geraniums and the kids found geraniums in the Ewell's house, even though it seemed out of place with the rusty and unkempt area. This is like saying that there is an innocence and goodness in everyone, despite what their outside says.

To Kill a Mockingbird, a person who shows symbolism is Atticus Finch. An object or place that shows symbolism would be the tree outside of the Radley's house. Atticus Finch shows symbolism because he is seen as a hero when he kills the rabid dog. Atticus is a father in that he shows love to his children. He is probably the only lawyer in Maycomb that would represent a black man. Atticus always tells his children that shooting a mockingbird is a sin because they don't do any harm. They are innocent creatures that make music. The snowman, the fire in Miss Maudie Atkinson's house, and the mockingbird are all examples of symbolism. The snowman that Jem and Scout made in front of Miss Maudie Atkinson's house one winter was an example of symbolism. Their was not enough snow for the snowman so Jem used dirt for the foundation and then covered it with the snow that they did have. The snowman is symbolic in that Jem is trying to cover up the black man and showing that he is the same as the white man. The fire in Miss Maudie Atkinson's house shows symbolism in that it shows the prejudice of Maycomb. The fire melted the snow from the snowman and left nothing but mud. The fire also shows that blacks and whites are nothing alike. The mockingbird shows symbolism because the mockingbird is innocent and all they do is sing beautiful songs. Killing a mockingbird is a sin. In the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch says to his children "As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it - whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash." That statement is similar to what he says to his kids about killing a mockingbird. The mockingbird symbolizes underprivileged black people. They are innocent and never would harm anyone just like the mockingbird. Boo Radley is also innocent and would never harm anyone therefore the mockingbird also symbolizes him. Boo Radley never comes out because he does not want to face the prejudice and corrupt world. The symbolism reveals the prejudice of the citizens of Maycomb, the fears they have, and all of the dishonest things they do. It also reveals an attempt to get rid of these feeling in Maycomb by a hero to the community, Atticus Finch and his children who will follow in his footsteps.
