The Finch family lives in Maycomb. The childrens father is a lawyer, and is defending a black, who is accused of raping a poor white mans daughter. Do you think the novel is uninteresting to read for Danes today? Why should one read about racial prejudice in USA in 1930?

Jeremy Finch.
Jeremy’s Finch pet name is Jem Finch. He is Scout’s older brother, who is four years older than Scout. Jem is intelligent, quieter and more reserved than his sister. He has very high standards and expectations for people. When these expectations are not met, he has a difficult time resolving his feelings. Jem has a magnificent imagination, he has always an idea to what scout, Dill and he could do. Jem trying to be a Gentleman just like his father and will do anything to make his father happy. Jem is a little naive, he thinks that everything ends well, but he learns to understand some of the darker aspects of human nature and justice does not always win. In the novel Jem moves into adolescence and that’s a difficult episode in his life. In the novel Jem develop from a boy to a grown up man. He learn many thing in Tom Robinsons case, he learns that it’s not always the good that win, and even though you know from the beginning you have lost, then must you fight for you rights. Jem has a very important part in the novel. He shows how a boy can use all the things he meet on his way in life, as well as they are bad or good experience.

Essay
This novel takes place in Maycombe, that’s a little stat in Alabama in 1930. The novel is told by a six years old little girl who name is Scout. She is daughter of the lawyer in the town. Scout and her brother Jem have grown up without a mother, because she died when scout was only two years old, but they have Calpurnia there is their black cook and she help a lot in the house. Jem and Scout are small unrestrained rebellious kids; they perform dramatically plays and play war.
One day Atticus (Scout father) gets a very unpopular case where he defends a black man because he is prosecute for rape on a white woman. After that day the little family life changes forever.
From scout’s eyes, the world and the little town have changed, started to hate, lie and be racists. From Scout eyes we try to understand the fascinating and the absurdly courtroom drama and how it split the people in Maycombe.
Atticus is the father of Scout and Jem. He is a lawyer and an extremely morally upright man who strives to deal with everyone in the greatest fairness. Atticus has an inclination to be a little overly optimistic sometimes, but his unshakable hope and his self-created role as the town do-gooder sustain him. He is old and has many experiences in his backpack.
Atticus has at strong personality, he is the most dominant person in the novel, and he has so many think to give other people. He thinks that black and white people is equal, he wants to show others that white and black people has they same feeling inside, it’s only outside they are a different. Atticus has a drive that could kill a man, because even though he stands alone with his thought about racism, he follows his heart and feelings. He has a huge knowledge to everything, he has a view to everything, and that is also when you talk about upbringing. He can be very tough against his children, but in a good way, he will show them the world, and he will have them to experience with the world and the people in Maycombe, so they can form their ideas how people react different and how people can be strong or weak in different situation. He is a man who take every step with precision, and almost never do anything wrong. He fight for what he wants even though he knows from the beginning that he will lose. Atticus is a true hero, not because he has saved a man, but because he do so many things for other people, and he almost never thing about himself, that’s my option to be a true hero.
The theme in the novel is “not to kill a mockingbird”. The mockingbird represents innocence. Like hunters who kill mockingbirds for sport, people kill innocence, or other people who are innocent, without thinking about what they are doing. Atticus stands firm in his defence of innocence and urges his children not to shoot mockingbirds both literally and figuratively. If you look at the theme in the book in one context its racism, people there hate the black people and look at them and only see degrade people.
“To kill a mockingbird” is a beautiful and humorously, rough and a history from the real life. When a child tells about injustice and prejudice through her normal weekdays, it gives it a fantastic effect and is a masterly way to describe the world on. When a child tells a story there is no secrets, because children have now idea about what’s right or wrong to say.

OK, I CHANGED THE FIRST PARAGRAPH. ITS A LITTLE LOOSE, YOU NEED TO TIGHTEN IT UP A BIT. THE NAME "JEM" IS REPEATED TO MANY TIMES. TRY TO MAKE IT SOUND CONTINUOS AND FLOWY.

*I* would have to be a masochist to switch to English. On the other hand, maybe it could be more interesting than anything I've done.
