To Kill a Mockingbird

Why do you think Lee starts with the history of the town and the family? (hint: think about “the ways” of Maycomb)

Maycomb's traditions haven't changed much sine Simon Finch founded the town. The town's values, beliefs, and the lifestyles of the people who live there follow the times of the old south. It's a different world. Lee begins here because it's important for the reader to understand how important the setting of the story is.
