What does the jail in To Kill a Mockingbird represent?
the knothole in the tree?
the Radley house?
Please help with any of these... I'm so confused!
Scroll down to read about symbols. One of the things about symbols is that often you get to interpret their meaning/representation as you see it.
What do you think about each of these?
I just finished TKAM. The jail represents the evil discriminatory side of Maycomb. The knothole represents Boo reaching out to the children, and that there is a good side to him. The Radley house represents the fears and myths Jem and Scout had as children.
P.S.-If you need any more help, I can try to help you, since I am also working on TKAM.
