Abstract:

"This text provides a critical study of To kill a mockingbird / by Harper Lee. This analysis draws on extensive research providing key insights into the novel's historical and biographical contexts; its place in American literature, and its critical reception. She then presents a five-part reading of Mockingbird, underscoring the novel's form and elucidating its pertinence for American society today.

An in-depth examination that pays tribute as it informs"--Website.
