Trace the theme of the mockingbird throughout the novel and analyze.

The mockingbird is a bird that only pleases people. It sings a pleasant song and then flies away. Atticus tells his children that it would be a sin to kill a mockingbird. The symbolism extends the innocent souls in the book who are misunderstood. They try to do good things and are punished for it. Just like killing a mockingbird, hurting these men is a sin. The men are of course Boo Radley and Tom Robinson.
Wait, but Aslan I thought it was Uncle Jack who said it was a sin to kill a mockingbird . . .
