The last example is the morphodite. This symbolizes how things evolved throughout the story. In particular, the opinions of people changed. Also Jem and Scout grew up quite a bit during the few years that the book takes place in. Boo Radley came out of his house and Miss. Dubose's personality changed after she quit taking morphine. All in all the morphodite is a huge concept to the story.
In conclusion, keeping in mind the purpose of this project, the symbols are a key subject in almost any story. In To Kill a Mockingbird a few symbols are the flowers, mockingbird Tim Johnson, and the morphodite. Knowing what they mean can help us students better understand the book and to possibly find symbols in other books. On the other hand knowing a motif can have an even bigger effect on your reading. It is important to keep watch of them and to keep reading.
To Kill a Mockingbird Paragraphs.
The purpose of this project is to help us students understand what the author is trying to convey through symbols. If we learn more about this then we could use them in our writing. Symbols can create motifs when related symbols come together and form a broad idea that repeats throughout a piece of literature. A motif can also be just one symbol that repeats in the literature. Either way a motif is a more in depth thinking of the symbol.
For example, in To Kill a Mockingbird a symbol that creates a motif is the flowers due to their deeper meanings. Miss. Dubose's camellias stand for peace because that is what they bring her when she is not yelling. Miss. Maudie's azaleas mean pride due to how they make her feel. Lastly, Mayella Ewell's geraniums represent hope because she does not have a very nice family. All in all the flowers are a large part of many characters lives.
Another example is the mockingbird. This is the main focus in the story because it symbolizes the peace throughout the town after a few instances. First of all there is peace after Boo saves Scout and Jem. Another time was when Miss Dubose died. Next is when Miss Maudie's new house was built. Lastly when Tim Johnson died. All together these instances show peace just like a Mockingbird does.
A third example is the dog named Tim Johnson. He stands for disease in the small town of Maycomb, Alambama. For instance, their is a lot of racism that is shown in this book. Also there is hatred that many characters feel towards each other. There is a few deaths that happen as well. Not to forget the morphine that Miss. Dubose takes. Tim shows the sickness within the book.
