To Kill a Mockingbird

Is Mrs. Dubose a nice kind lady or is she the meanest old woman Scout can think of her as?

Please let me know if someone else asked this question. I'm sorry if someone has. (I'm in the To Kill a Mockingbird unit for 8th grade).

In a fit of rage, Jem cut down Mrs. Dubose flowers. Mrs. Dubose hurled insults at scout and Jem even going as far as to include Atticus. Jem cut her precious flowers. As punishment Atticus made Jem read to the old lady. He wanted Jem to get to know Mrs. Dubose not as an angry old lady but as a human being who has had a very tough life.

She's nice. Scout thinks she's no good of an old lady.
