    -> Hatred towards Boo by the people of Maycomb.
    -> Atticus being a role model against hatred and forgiveness and that.
    -> Hatred against outsiders... like that new teacher that comes and teaches the kids whose name I can't remember.
    -> Jem's "hatred" towards Boo's brother or whoever it was who covered up the hole in the tree.
    -> Obviously unjust hatred from whites towards blacks (worth noting- in the book it is described that the blacks live next to a rubbish dump... find some symbolism from this!). Also how the Church of the blacks is used by whites as a gambling place... so hatred (well, more disrespect, tbh) towards the black community.

    I can't really remember the book tbh but literally my technique for english was: close eyes, flick to random page, place finger randomly on page and try to twist the quote I find towards the theme of the question while PEEing quite intensely.

    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?

    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.
    hmm this seems as if it has come from wikipedia :eek:

    Well, you see, I was just trying to provide an analytical insight into the challenges faced by Jem and Scout as they battle against a community consumed by prejudice and discrimination.

    It came from the bottom of my heart. </3

    Your're just jealous.

    Actually, I was lying. My teacher (the sly fox) told me that my essay could have been better if I removed the things you suggested. I accidently put the wrong post on the wrong thread.

    The sly fox works in wondrous ways, she gives justcallmejess 40/40 on her essay, but shuns her ideas because they came from gilly beans... are these ideas good or bad, or is this just an excellent example of how racial prejudice in TKAM is realted to life in 2011. Brown segregation? :confused:

    Nope. You and Gilllybeans just lack "flair".
    Flamboyant curves.
    That is all.

    'Flair' is just a euphemism for 'i'll give you a pity mark because you used a few long words' period.
