They say he has blood stained hand and eats raw squirrels. If it was any other man, it'd be different. He fell in with the wrong crowd, got in trouble with the law, and was forced to face the consequences. Like an actor on stage, storytellers have the responsibility of keeping a story entertaining, yet believable, through their gestures and attitude while telling the story. Unbeknownst to the Finch children, Boo has watched them grow up. Even though Jem and Scout think I am a psycho I am going to be really nice and help them out when they need it.
. Work cited: ; 23rd 2006 by Harper Perennial Modern Classics first published July 11th 1960. At first, Boo is the inspiration behind numerous games played by Scout, Jem, and Dill. Boo already knew that he loved the kids since he started placing the presents in the tree. His stomach was soft but his arms were like steel. The film portrays Scout and Jem imagining him as being a psychopath, one who is comparable to the villain in a horror story. Dill doesn't know his biological father, just as Scout doesn't know her mother.
Just standing on the Radley porch was enough. At the beginning of the story, Boo was seen as a monster for Jem, Scout and Dill. The symbol of killing a blameless bird is repeated through out the story when Harper Lee describes Boo Radley, Tom Robinson, and Calpurnia. Although in the beginning of the book Boo Radley was viewed as an outcast and described as a mad man later in the book the children realised that he is somewhat a child inside still. He is a powerful symbol of goodness swathed in an initial shroud of creepiness, leaving little presents for Scout and Jem and emerging at an opportune moment to save the children. Boo Radley was a huge part in scouts childhood. Once you pick up this book, you will need the key of being able to dissect the book in order to unlock its full potential.
Although there are many characters in the novel, the mockingbirds that were the most obvious in the story were Tom Robinson, Boo Radley, and Mrs. A widower with a dry sense of humor, Atticus has instilled in his children his strong sense of morality and justice. He still stayed mysterious inside the house. Sometimes rumors circulate about the individuals, that might then be assumed as the truth. The Radley family took the second option, marking the beginning of Arthur's life apart from the outside world.

Winter, and his children shivered at the front gate, silhouetted against a blazing house. Boo carries the injured Jem back to the Finch house. When Boo was young, he got into the wrong crowd and got into some trouble.
He is also not able to do anything about people spreading rumors about him. The evidence shows Scout and Jem have been deceived by their neighbors and that their childish innocence deprives them of their ability to tell the difference between the fact and fiction. The image of Boo Radley can at first seem strange and even disturbing, according to the overall tone of the story. In the end, standing on his porch, she 'walks around in his skin', and finally realizes that s … he and the town had been wrong about him. Just because a man is rumored to have done a dark deed, should he live a lonely life? He is a recluse and spends all of his time indoors. Maybe that's why Lee has a child tell the story—because children can use their imaginations.
He was treated poorly by his father, was the victim of many unfair rumors and preferred not to be given credit for his heroic actions because of the misery the unwanted attention would bring him. He tells enormous lies and concocts unlikely stories just as Mayella does during Tom's trial. The actual character of the mockingbird is vaguely switched throughout the book from Jem, to Tom Robinson, then Dill, Boo Radley and so forth.

Often large groups of people misunderstand certain unusual individuals. Deep down he is a gentle, kind soul who lives a life of solitude for whatever reason. Boo Radley and Tom Robinson share many similarities in spite of fact that one man is white and the other black. Or perhaps, in taking an active interest in the Finch children, he already has: perhaps his character suggests that the bonds that hold a community together can be more than just social ones. They show that Jem and Scout have some quantities that distinguish them from the rest of the children. He is also a nice man because he tried to connect with Jem and Sco … ut by leaving presents for them in the tree. It really is a great book that covers all sorts of things; racism, the great depression, small town life, and childhood.
