Depending on how you defi...

Being that I am a woman myself, I was disturbed at the fact that the woman tanning on the roof did not do anything about these men who were insult...
Exaggeration Of The Story
335 wordsHarper Lee's To kill a mocking bird is a very compelling story about racism, friendship, and family. Throughout the story meaning is shaped in many different ways. It is mainly shaped through close observation by people, also by the story being told through the voice and eyes of scout, Jean, and also through exaggeration made by some people from aspects of the book. The story starts off with scout, as a woman, introducing to us Jem, her brother, Atticus, her father, Dill, her friend, and Culprun...
