    Lee also uses the action around the case to illustrate the tension between Christianity, bigotry, and hypocrisy. Hypocrisy and hatred are learned behaviors, suggests Lee, just as love and compassion are. Tom feels compassion for Mayella, a poor, uneducated young woman physically abused by her father. Similarly, Atticus shows love and friendship to Tom when he helps protect him from a mob intent on hanging him for a crime he did not commit. Compassion sets both men apart from other members of the community and is the catalyst for most of the conflict that surrounds them.

    In Chapter 9 of  To Kill a Mockingbird, the reader first learns of Atticus''''''''''''''''s having accepted the role of state-appointed defense attorney for Tom Robinson, who has been charged with allegedly raping Mayella Ewell, after Scout engages in a fight with Cecil Jacobs who accuses Atticus of being a "n***r lover."

    Though the verdict is unfortunate, Atticus feels some satisfaction that the jury took so long deciding. Usually, the decision would be made in minutes, because a black man''''''''s word would not be trusted. Atticus is hoping for an appeal, but unfortunately Tom tries to escape from his prison and is shot to death in the process. Jem has trouble handling the results of the trial, feeling that his trust in the goodness and rationality of humanity has been betrayed.

    Heck Tate and the others wanted Tom moved in order to better protect him. They were afraid he''''''''d be taken from the jail and lynched.

    "Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first knew it. In rainy weather the streets turned to red slop; grass grew on the sidewalks, the courthouse sagged in the square. Somehow it was hotter then: a black dog suffered on a summers day; bony mules hitched to Hoover carts flicked flies in the sweltering shade of the live oaks on the square. Men''''s stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning. Ladies bathed before noon, after their three-o''''clock naps, and by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frostings of sweat and sweet talcum." Page 5

    The descriptive detail paints a vivid picture of the town of Maycomb, which provides some insight on Scout''''s feelings about Maycomb. In addition, the narrator provides the setting for the story and sets the mood for a quiet and somewhat dull town, which sets the stage for the conflict of Tom''''s trial.

    Hello. To Kill A Mockingbird Essay In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird a major theme is the loss of innocence. Whether from emotional abuse, racial prejudice or learning, Boo, Tom, and Scout all lose their innocence in one sense or another. The prejudice that each character endures leads to their loss. Through the responses of Boo, Tom, and Scout, Harper Lee shows how each character responded differently to their loss of innocence. In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird the character of Boo Radley is the first to suffer the loss of his innocence. As a teen, Boo experienced trouble with the law and for his consequences his father imprisoned him in his own house. Because of the harsh consequences forced upon him by his father, Boo grew up without a real life and lived like a prisoner in his own home. One quote from the novel specifically says that the neighbors noted," The doors of the Radley house were closed on weekdays as well as Sundays"(15). You can get more info here:
