In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird the character Scout plays an important role Harper Lee portrays her as straightforward abrupt impulsive and even just plain rude One example of this is when Scout says He aint company Cal hes just a Cunningham Lee 24 in reference to when Walter Cunningham was over at the Finch residence and Scout disapproved of the way he ate his food that is with a liberal amount of syrup This shows that she is unafraid to speak her mind Also it shows that she is very opinionated about classes of people as the Cunningham boy was of a lower class than Scouts own family This in addition proves that Scout can be unruly when she wants to be Another great quote from Lees story to go along with the one above would be when Scout decides to take a piece of gum from a knothole in a tree on the way home from school I stood on tiptoehastily looked around once more reached into the hole and withdrew two pieces of chewing gum minus their outer wrappers My first impulse was to stick it into my mouth Lee 32 This excerpt from the story shows Scouts impulsive side showing that she does not always think before acting There is also another side to Scout that we do not see as much the gentle side where she cares for Jem and wants him not to go to the Radleys to give Arthur Radley a note Another example is when she goes with Jem to read to Mrs Dubose a horrible woman every day In conclusion Scout may seem rowdy unruly and uncouth and she may be but on the inside there is more to that she also is a caring little girl
