  • In this novel, as in life, nothing is either
    perfectly good or perfectly evil. It would have
    been easy to offer a blatant indictment of the
    Ewells crime, the towns bigotry, Aunt
    Alexandras narrow-mindedness, Dolphus Raymonds
    eccentricity, Mrs. Duboses nastiness and drug
    addiction. However, Harper Lee always
    counterbalances the evil with the good in order
    to portray the real complexities of life.
    Describe how each of these possible indictments
    are tempered by positive counterpoints. Why do
    you think the author always falls short of making
    outright indictments against the society being
    described? What do you think she is really
    trying to convey about they nature of bigotry and
    injustice?
