One of the key aspects of the novel used to enforce the themes of the novel is the setting. The social, racial, and economics of the deep south during the Great Depression provides the conflicts that the characters encounter. Old southern ways and ignorance that are entrenched in much of the white population of Maycomb are juxtaposed with the progressive and even enlightened attitude of Atticus and his family.
