About To Kill A Mockingbird

What is To Kill a Mockingbird about?

Harper Lee's book is set in Alabama in 1934. The book follows one of the most known characters of American literature, Atticus Finch and his daughter Scout. Harper Lee's story revolves around Atticus Finch who is a small-town lawyer. Atticus Finch is then tasked to defend Tom Robinson, a local black man who is accused of rape. The story finds its way as the titular character explores racial tension and justice in the southern town where the tale is set. Atticus is a mockingbird because he sees the good in everyone. Aunt Alexandra, his sister, tries to enforce ladylike behaviour in Scout and is concerned about the status of the family.

To Kill A Mockingbird was published in 1960, but it is still relevant today.

The title 'To Kill a Mockingbird' is taken from the dialogue, 'it's a sin to kill a mockingbird', where Atticus says that mockingbirds are harmless, just like the innocent man on trial, Tom Robinson.
