Hi there, i posted a question similar to this yesterday that i am having a little more difficulty with.
Discuss the theme of intolerance in relation to the novel. Use examples of people who are involved in bringing out this theme.
I am having trouble coming up with a thesis statement. One of the characters who show intolerance is Aunt Alexandra who is a perfect example of narrow-mindedness and racial intolerance. When Scout and Jem want to go to Calpurnia's church she quickly hesistated and said 'No'.
I don't know how to connect the character of Aunt Alexandra to the thesis statment.

Check out this site. It has an excellent analysis of themes and motifs in that book. Also check the section on Character analysis.

How about this:
In to kill a mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra is the quintessence of racial intolerance by the way she disciplines how the children should act and behave.

I'd add "as she shows" before "by."
I'd also remove "how" and "should act and behave." The sentence will be smoother.

I also had this, what do you think?
In To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra is the quintessence of racial intolerance, both in the way she disciplines the children and how her personal life is depicted.
