The quote is important because the colors Jean see’s are look at differently from seeing differences in people. Jean does not see a difference between whites and black’s. “She was color blind.” (Narrator, 122) The word refers herself due to Atticus raising Jean to treat everyone equally. My opinion about the quote is that the color are referred to how she was raised and see’s a different point of view of people. In the end, Jean Louise sees the truth about herself and her opinions about her father and the world around her.

If you read the diary of a high school girl, what could you learn about her? The name of her best friend, what kind of a person she is, and maybe even signs of troubles deeper than the bad grade she got on her last chemistry exam would pop out at you. She probably would not explicitly state these things, either—they would become apparent simply by looking at how often her best friend’s name appeared within the pages, how she interacted with the people around her, and how she described her thoughts and feelings. Seeing things directly from her perspective would give you a unique look at who she was as a person, what her relationships with other people were like, and what her take on events was, all without ever being told what they were like

She remembers how tired she was and yet not being able to sleep that night, turning to count a handful of large moving figures on the ground. When she had gotten to 5 she jumped up screaming “MICE!

And you better get used to them because they are everywhere,” and she was right, they were everywhere. Realizing that they wouldn’t be able to fall asleep the two girls settled on taking a trip to the latrine in an attempt to clear their heads. Neither of them could have expected what they saw. As Eva walked into the bathroom she saw the bodies
Before me loomed the old observatory which would be our home for the next year. Its walls were an expanse of red brick stacked on red brick, contrasting the two white front doors and the white domed tower. It sat atop Henrick Cliff with large fields sloping down from the front of the house. The tower could be seen rising from the back of the house, with the cliffs edge and sea beyond that. The observatory looked like a forgotten castle, waiting for the next rulers to occupy it.

Louise’s realization of autonomy shows that while she did have a somewhat favorable marriage, she felt trapped and that her husband’s desires had been imposed upon her. Additionally, Mrs. Mallard’s death that soon follows shows how much this new freedom truly means to her and how horrified she is that it is being taken away from her so soon. Jamil states, “At the sight of her husband she is at once profoundly aware of her newfound freedom and the fact that it will not last. The shock that kills her must, then, be the realization that she has lost this freedom, and with it her human individuality” (Jamil 220). The epiphany Mrs. Mallard experienced liberated her from marriage, while Brently’s return shackled her back in, causing her to die from her overwhelming dismay of being
