Chapter 6 - Prompt 3 We thought it was better to go under the high wire fence at the rear of the Radley lot we stood less change of being seen The fence enclosed a large garden and a narrow wooden out-house Jem held up the bottom wire and motioned to Dill under it I followed and held up the wire for Jem It was a tight squeeze for him 56 This quotation impressed me because of the incredible symbolism that it portrays The childrens search through the darkness the several wire fences the vegetables in the yard and then the dark window with curtains is somewhat symbolic of the childrens search through layers of ignorance and rumor to find the truth underneath it all at the very core By searching for the man who has been made into a monster by society they will bring back his basic common humanity and unite him with everyone else in spite of his unusual personality The faint light that Dill sees represents the inner personality and true demeanor of Boo Radley It illustrates that under all the stereotypes and rumors that encompass Boo there is good at the very heart of his soul This theme also ties in with the theme of increasing savagery in The Lord of the Flies The theme of savagery in The Lord of the Flies depicts that everyone has savage inner instincts but this barbarism is hidden by the laws and regulations of civilized society In To Kill a Mockingbird the author also a similar theme which illustrates that everyone is equal at heart and their true personality is covered by societys stereotypes and thoughts Both novels show that peoples true personalities arise when they are removed from society and discrimination but The Lord of the Flies states that mans inner essence is evil while on the other hand To Kill a Mockingbird states that mans inner intentions are good
