To Kill a Mockingbird | Romananalyse
Dette er en romananalyse av boken "To Kill a Mockingbird" av Harper Lee fra 1960. Oppgaven besvarer på de typiske emnene man har med i en analyse, blant annet virkemidler og budskap, men også "thesis statement"-en, som er selvvalgt, i tittelen: "How To Kill a Mockingbird still raises questions about 'genuine' justice and morality."

The children in the town refer to Arthur as Boo Radley, as if he were a ghost. They have this horrible picture of what he is with. Per Jem, Boo Radley appears to be like some monster:
