    can you pleas explain this quote more and give me a description on Walter, while walter piled food on his plate, he and atticus talked together like two men, to the wonderment of jem and me.. atticus was expounding upon farm problems when walter

    Atticus treats Walter with respect and speaks to him in an adult fashion. They discuss farming, something neither of his own children understand, and Walter explains to Atticus how helping his father with the crops keeps him out of school.

    Scout Finch lives with her brother Jem and father Atticus in Maycomb, Alabama during the Great Depression. Scout spends her summers playing with Jem and their friend Dill, who visits his aunt in Maycomb each summer. The children become obsessed with Boo Radley, the reclusive neighbor rumored to have stabbed his own father in the leg with a pair of scissors. During the school year, Boo leaves small presents for Scout and Jem in a knothole.

    At the end of the novel, Scout walks Boo back to his house, stopping for a moment on his porch to look out at the town from his perspective: the children playing, leaves turning, Miss Maudie’s house burning. Scout tells Atticus that Boo was really nice. She has finally learned the lesson he tried to teach her earlier in the novel: that you can’t really understand a person until you walk in their shoes. Scout’s story may be about losing one’s innocence, but it’s also about coming of age, and that’s what makes this novel one of the most popular novels of all time.

    Interestingly, Harper Lee decided to set the novel in the Depression era of the 1930s. The main character, Scout, is based on Lee''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s own childhood, and Dill is most likely based on her childhood friend and neighbor, Truman Capote. By placing her novel in the 1930s, Lee provided her readers with a historical background for current events of the time, and in doing so she exposed the deeply rooted history of the civil rights struggle in the South.

    can you pleas explain this quote more and give me a description on Walter, while walter piled food on his plate, he and atticus talked together like two men, to the wonderment of jem and me.. atticus was expounding upon farm problems when walter

    Atticus treats Walter with respect and speaks to him in an adult fashion. They discuss farming, something neither of his own children understand, and Walter explains to Atticus how helping his father with the crops keeps him out of school.

    Scout Finch lives with her brother Jem and father Atticus in Maycomb, Alabama during the Great Depression. Scout spends her summers playing with Jem and their friend Dill, who visits his aunt in Maycomb each summer. The children become obsessed with Boo Radley, the reclusive neighbor rumored to have stabbed his own father in the leg with a pair of scissors. During the school year, Boo leaves small presents for Scout and Jem in a knothole.

    At the end of the novel, Scout walks Boo back to his house, stopping for a moment on his porch to look out at the town from his perspective: the children playing, leaves turning, Miss Maudie’s house burning. Scout tells Atticus that Boo was really nice. She has finally learned the lesson he tried to teach her earlier in the novel: that you can’t really understand a person until you walk in their shoes. Scout’s story may be about losing one’s innocence, but it’s also about coming of age, and that’s what makes this novel one of the most popular novels of all time.

    To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel by Harper Lee published in 1960. It was immediately successful, winning the Pulitzer Prize , and has become a classic of modern American literature. The plot and characters are loosely based on the author''s observations of her family and neighbors, as well as on an event that occurred near her hometown in 1936, when she was 10 years old.

    The novel is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with the serious issues of rape and racial inequality. The narrator''s father, Atticus Finch , has served as a moral hero for many readers and as a model of integrity for lawyers. One critic explains the novel''s impact by writing, "In the twentieth century, To Kill a Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist , Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of racial heroism." [1]

    Interestingly, Harper Lee decided to set the novel in the Depression era of the 1930s. The main character, Scout, is based on Lee's own childhood, and Dill is most likely based on her childhood friend and neighbor, Truman Capote. By placing her novel in the 1930s, Lee provided her readers with a historical background for current events of the time, and in doing so she exposed the deeply rooted history of the civil rights struggle in the South.

    The novel's characters are forced to examine the world (or at least the town) in which they live. Through observing their society and interacting with people such as Tom Robinson and Boo Radley , they come to understand more about true bravery, cowardice, and humanity.
