An Analysis Of Children In To Kill A Mockingbird By Harper Lee

Decent Essays
In chapter 4 of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, the children are playing a game based off of rumors they hear about the Radleys. They didn’t just make up these rumors themselves though, they hear them from adults. For example, “It was a melancholy little drama woven from bits and scraps of gossip and adult neighborhood legend.” (Lee 52). A perfect example of children echoing what their parents say could be, when a small child says a curse word or says something inappropriate. They obviously had to have heard it from somewhere and the people that small children are around the most are their parents. This goes to show that we should all be careful about what we say around children because you never know who it will go back to.
