Please help me A.S.A.P .... Need to write about one of the adult women who has an important effect of scout.
"That boy is your company. And if he wants to eat up that tablecloth, you let him, you hear? And if you can't act fit to eat like folks, you can just set here and eat in the kitchen." Calpurnia speaks like a parent and indeed she is. As Scout matures and her world begins to rapidly change Calpurnia seems to know and again is there for Scout, "Calpurnia bent down and kissed me....." By the end of the novel Scout comes to know that Calpurnia is a special woman. Not only does she bridge the gap between the black and white communities, she (more importantly) instils her values and ethics on Scout. Calpurnia is the mother figure that helps make Scout into the wonderful character that she is.
