To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bront are two very different books written in different periods of history There are however similarities in the themes and background For example both books were written during times of great social upheaval and strife In To Kill A Mocking Bird the world was still very racist and it was not until the book was actually written some twenty years later the men like Martin Luther King and Malcolm X started to bring about real reforms Jane Eyre was slightly different as this was set during a time when the masses of overworked and underpaid Victorians were being given greater freedoms and more time in which to have these freedoms Both books are written from a first person point of view with a narrative voice In To Kill A Mocking Bird the narrative voice is the voice of Scout a small girl and in Jane Eyre Jane herself takes the role of narrator Both books are also Fictional Autobiographies This means that they chronicle if not directly the lives of the authors The two books in the first chapters revolve strongly around the themes of childhood The way that these themes are introduced affects the whole book and the way that characters react to one another To Kill A Mocking Bird starts with two paragraphs that contain the entire book It tells the reader of the beginning middle and end of the book It also introduces the way in which the story will be told and five of the most important characters For a solid eight paragraphs there is nothing but description of the Finch family It is here that childhood really starts to be introduced The language used is almost entirely superfluous very descriptive uses many effective if childish techniques such as There was no hurry for there was nowhere to go nothing to buy and no money to buy it
