Slide 3 - Tekstslide

Comparing books
At the beginning of the novel, Scout is an innocent, good-hearted five-year-old child who has no experience with the evils of the world. As the novel progresses, Scout has her first contact with evil in the form of racial prejudice. A black man is wrongly accused of rape and is sent to prison for it. The question throughout the book is if Scout will keep her optimism and belief in humanity or whether she will be bruised and hurt by bad experiences, and will lose her faith in humanity. She is a girl who grows up in a loving environment. Thanks to her father Atticus’s wisdom she learns that humanity has both evil and good sides. And so you always have to be open-minded. Scout develops into an optimistic human being, who, whatever evil she encounters, stays strong without becoming cynical. Though she is still a child at the end of the book, Scout’s perspective on life develops from that of an innocent child into that of a near grown-up.
