    My English teacher has set me this piece of homework, and I'm supposed to be finding out about hate in To Kill a Mockingbird, but I can't find anything - not even if any of my Revision Guides

    A little help please?

    It's about racism, it's not exactly hard to find hatred in TKAM

    the wikipedia page gives you more than enough to work from

    Nothing? On hate? Seriously?

    Jelly-covered midget jockeys, sure, but hate? That's so easy.

    It's a great book as well, it's not like they are asking him to read something prosaic and dull. I will lend him one of my copies

    The whole book circulates around racism and injustice. There's plenty of hate to pick out. O.O The trial scene and what occurs afterwards is saturated with it.

    Hate is intertwined with the novel's plot throughout its duration. It is hate, whether driven by prejudice or personal matters, which enables Harper Lee to communicate the effects of discrimination, whether it be racial, sexist, status or centred around a person's "family background". Some of the key events in the novel, which are linked with this hatred are: the court trial, Bob Ewell attacking Jem and Scout, racism in general, events centred around Mrs Dubose, etc. You could also refer to the town's disapproval of Atticus defending Tom Robinson to the best of his ability. There are loads of possibilities.

    The whole book is about hate. I'm not sure how you could have missed it!!
