Throughout the course of To Kill a Mockingbird, a classic novel written by Harper Lee, Scout is taught to see things from other people’s perspective and the two people that scout really steps into their shoes are Boo Radley and Atticus. More than any other character in the novel Scout sees things from Boo Radley’s point of view.
“……….you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough.” This is the precise moment where Scout sees things from Boo Radley’s perspective, throughout the book scout was trying to the real Boo Radley and when she is standing on The Radley Porch she realizes the Boo isn’t that much different from herself. Scout also sees that boo isn’t the monster she perceived him to be at the beginning of the book. In fact he is just the opposite, a playful and childish man. Also at the end of the book Scout recalls her time with Boo to Atticus.
“Atticus, he was real nice………” After imagining Boo as a monster it made Scout find out how boo saw things. When she walked boo home she finally saw who the real Boo Radley was and how he lived his life. Believe it or not Boo Radley isn’t the only character who scout comes to understand better, Atticus teaches scout much life lessons and is arguably the most important character.
“I was more at home in my father’s world…..” This shows that Scout was more comfortable with Atticus because she had crawled in his skin and seen things from his point of view.
