To Kill a Mockingbird, 50th Anniversary Edition\Wer die Nachtigall stört, englische Ausgabe
Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit em, but remember
its a sin to kill a mockingbird. A lawyers advice to his children
as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lees classic novela
black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young
eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor
and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward
race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a
town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by
the stamina and quiet heroism of one mans struggle for justicebut
the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
