Scout, a Character Analysis

Summary: Analyzes the character of Scout from the Harper Lee novel, To Kill a Mockingbird.
Jean Louise Finch, also known as Scout by her friends, is a very courageous young girl. One example of her being courageous is when Jem, her and Dill go over to Boo Radly's house and try to sneak him a note through the window. They almost got the note in but had failed to do so, after doing this action it shows that she is very brave especially being such a young age and having in mind that Boo Radly was a crazy murderer. "Hey Boo"(273) is what Scout said to Boo Radly. This shows Scouts courage because she would have never had said hi to him in the past and it seems as if she is getting braver. Scouts courage is evident in all her actions and it is apparent to all those who know her. The other quality that Scout has is being considerate. Scout shows consideration in many ways throughout the whole book. In one way she shows this quality is when she is talking about how there is no difference between black and white people and says "I think there's just one type of folk, folk"(79). Scout is showing a lot of consideration in saying this considering she is still at a young age of six and seems to understand what discrimination is. As you can see throughout the book To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee, Scout shows and expresses some very good quality traits these included being courageous and considerate.
