Arthur “Boo” Radley is an example of a mockingbird that never harmed anyone. Scout and Jem think Arthur is a bad man, but the first time they meet him is when Arthur saves them from Bob Ewell. After Arthur saves them Scout no longer thinks Arthur is scary. Arthur gets compared to a mockingbird because like a mockingbird he is innocent and doesn’t harm anyone. Arthur risked his innocence to save the children knowing bad things could happen. In the beginning of the novel Arthur was made out to be the bad guy. He was the guy that left the house at night to peep into people’s windows. But, what Scout never realized was that Arthur was the guy actually leaving them all the gifts in the tree hole. As other events come to an end Arthur resurfaces as the final symbolism of a mockingbird.
