STUDY GUIDE, SUMMARY & ANALYSIS OF HARPER LEE'S TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD -- NELLE HARPER LEE To Kill A Mockingbird is as tenacious and headstrong as the woman who wrote the book. Despite being banned in several counties throughout the years (or perhaps because of it), the book's charm and timeless values shine through, winning countless awards and being recognized worldwide and by readers of all ages as one of America's greatest contributions to literature. Harper Lee won the admiration of millions by weaving a story about human dignity standing alongside disgrace, in the unforgettable voice of childhood innocence. At the time of the book's publication, the United States was experiencing an explosion of the same racial tensions that Scout and Jem witnessed during their youth in the 1930s. Racial prejudice and injustice were rampant. Those who thought differently and stood up for change were, like Atticus, facing the narrow and rigid thinking handed down from former generations-vulnerable and exposed to attack . . . and sometimes they, too, were alone. The American South was once again in the midst of a violent transition not completely dissimilar to that of the Civil War and Reconstruction. This book was a product of its time, and many of its elements, from the description of the town's dominant mentality to the treatment of Tom Robinson, were drawn from reality. Consequently, the book was a sensation (sensational, almost, due to being banned in certain districts), and it remains a work beloved among free thinkers. FROM START-TO-FINISH IN JUST 30 MINUTES!
