It is believed, that there are many pieces to the story of To Kill a Mocking Bird left out of the film version of the novel. I agree with this statement, and I am here today to show you four select scenes and/or characters that (in my opinion) were significant to the story. To Kill a Mocking Bird is a coming of age story for two young children, as well as a story that shows that people are not always what they seem to be. The scenes that I have chosen are very important role in supporting to these themes.
Even though Jem (Jeramy Finch) and Scout (Jean Louise Finch) are much alike they also have many differences. In the book, To Kill a Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee, Scout and Jem are brother and sister. In the novel, they do lots of things together. They are really close in comparison but if the reader looks very closely they may spot some differences between the two. The purpose of this essay is to give the reader a look at the things Jem and scout have in common and what they do not.
In Lord of the Flies, British schoolboys are stranded on a tropical island. In an attempt to recreate the civilization they left behind, they nominate Ralph as their leader, with the smart and rational Piggy by his side. But Jack wants to lead, too, and one-by-one, he lures the boys from reason and humanity to savagery and a survival and inhuman state; they become the hunters. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding gives us a glimpse of the savagery that controls even the most civilized human beings. In To Kill a Mockingbird, author Harper Lee uses interesting characters to explore civil rights and racism in the segregated Southern United States of the 1930s. Narrated by Scout Finch, you learn about her father Atticus Finch, an attorney who hopelessly fights to prove the innocence of a black man wrongly accused of rape; and about Boo Radley, a mysterious neighbour who saves Scout and her brother Jem from being killed.
The novel To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee and film 12 Angry Men directed by Sidney Lumet, both touch on similar themes of justice and prejudice. When contrasting the two texts it is evident that there are many foils which display their own strong personal characteristics yet keep those themes at the core of their character. Generally, influence is a result of conformity, when people begin to make change in their actions and heart, others follow suit to feel included. This is the case in the texts, individuals manage to convince groups of people by creating a norm to be followed. It is more so a case of influencing individuals who in turn convince others. This is because people like to feel included, and not as though they are outcasts.
The disney film, A Bug’s Life, is a story of an outcast who must rise up as the hero to fix his mistakes in order to ensure the good of the other ants in his colony.

Flik must leave the safety of ant island to seek bigger bugs to save the colony. Flik is only one ant, in a societal structure that changes due to revolution and resistance, and a change of mind.
It is an unimaginable thought that something so similar can be missing so much. They can be both so unique and incomparable. In the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee the main character, Scout and her brother Jem fight prejudice through a young person perspective. The main characters go on a journey against Bob Ewell throughout the sleepy town of Maycomb, at the 1930’s. Bob Ewell has falsely accused Tom Robinson of a crime. On the process the characters grow a lot and find things that spark their curiosity. This makes an interesting plot with many turns. The movie, To Kill a Mockingbird, has many differences from its book, many plots and characters are missing which greatly impacts the movie directed by Robert Mulligan.
Many have wondered how abusive people become that way, or how some people are driven to do impossibly kind things. Answering these questions can be very complicated. For example, Tom Sawyer from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer grew up to be selfish and deceitful, but for the March sisters from Little Women ,it's almost the opposite in that they grew up to want to help people at their expense. Nobody is born with kindness, and more often than not, kindness or abusive and selfish tendencies come from experiences.
Compare how the composers of To Kill a Mockingbird and Persepolis use characterisation to explore the conflict between personal and public worlds.
To Kill a Mockingbird and A Raisin in the Sun are books both written during a time of racial tension and inequality. Harper Lee and Lorraine Hansberry lived through the civil rights movement and saw the physical and verbal harassment against African Americans. This experience is evident in both works as the theme of fighting prejudice shines through. The goal of this paper is to compare and contrast the theme in both books and how it affected both of the families. Also, throughout the paper I will examine the themes of innocence and fighting prejudice.

There are colossal amounts of people that have read the iconic story, To Kill a Mockingbird. The book digs deep into the story and its deep dark issues, while the movie shows more of the surface. It is a question whether or not the movie made a larger and better impact on the people. The setting of To Kill a Mockingbird is located in Maycomb, Alabama in the 1930’s. During this time, prejudice and racial segregation was coming to an end, but in Maycomb these stereotypes still existed and made an effect on many individuals. Scout, a six-year-old girl, witnesses these terrible times. She is narrating this story even with the visual of a young child; at this age she doesn’t understand the meaning of all
Compare and contrast the presentation of love and marriage in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Pride and Prejudice and The Great Gatsby.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a beloved novel published in 1960. After reading the novel there were some moments and people that I found particularly enjoyable. My favorite part of the novel was when the children went to Boo Radley's house to try to get a look at him. In addition, Atticus Finch was my favorite character in the novel. In my opinion the book was very good. I felt that it really showed the thoughts and actions, both good and bad, of the people in the South during the time of the Great Depression. At some points it was sad and at others it was comical but overall it conveyed the message that it was trying to send and everyone could learn something from it.
Ruth and James both had similar and different experiences while they attended school. Ruth had not had anyone she was really able to interact with while she was at Suffolk. There was three schools they had for whites, blacks, and jews at Suffolk. The jewish school did not meet the state requirements so she attends as her father calls it a “gentile school”(chapter 9). Ruth felt as if nobody liked her until she met her friend Frances (chapter 9). Ruth remembers the poverty that inflicted both white and black people. Unlike his mother James did not have that one true friend he can rely on when he felt depressed. Instead he took on a hobby, and that hobby was playing jazz music and it was used to help him escape his painful memories (chapter 10).
The movie is scarier than the book. The book does not have any sound effects. The movie is scarier because of the lighting. When the lights dim, it is total darkness which is kind of scary. Then the lightning comes in and makes the place a whole lot spookier. Then the sound effect when the ghost points its finger, that makes it sound like something bad is going to happen. That makes it different from the book.
