To Kill a Mocking Bird

‘I had never seen our neighbourhood from this angle’

Scout exclaims this whilst observing the neighbourhood from the Radely’s house. She has finally done what Atticus had spent most of the novel trying to teach her, she had put herself into someone elses shoes and seen the world through their eyes. This sentence symbolises that aswell as seeing the neighbourhood from a new point of view, she had also gained and insight into Arthur’s life, looking at it from a new angle and thus discovering new things. She seemed to realise that up until this point she had been an ignorant child. This sentence also expresses how she is growing up.
