FC: Arthur Radley
1: Hi, I'm Arthur Radley, though you may know me as Boo Radley as some of the kids around Maycomb call me. I can be described as reclusive, and I don't like to talk much. The kids around Maycomb think I'm some sort of mysterious monster, since I don't go outside much, but I try to let the kids know that I'm watching over them. Once my brother shot at Jem because he was trespassing on our property, and he ripped his pants on the fence while escaping. He left them behind and ran off. I grabbed them from outside and sewed them up for Jem to come back and get later.
2: Another time, Miss Maudie's house caught on fire, and the kids sat on top of the hill nearby and watched as the house was swallowed up by the inferno. While they were so focused on the flame, I grabbed a blanket from the inside of my house and snuck up behind Scout, one of the children. I gently set the blanket on top of her, and neither one of the two children seemed to notice me, so I crept away back to my silent house. I hoped that the children would understand after doing so many things for them that I'm not such a bad person, but I don't think they understood yet.
3: The children in Maycomb would play a game that the called the Boo Radley Game. They would act out what they think my life is like, kind of like a play. When their father asked them what they were doing, they'd say that all they were doing was playing, and their father just went back inside. Despite the children making fun of me, I still wanted to watch over them, to protect them. I tried showing them this in multiple ways. One way I did this is I gave them gifts through a knothole in a tree. You see, the children would pass by a tree near my house every day when they came home from
4: school. I noticed this and saw it as a chance to let the children know that I cared for them. I began putting various gifts into the knothole of the tree. I put all kinds of things into the knothole. I put things like watches and a ball of yarn. By far, the best gift that I gave the children was of two wooden dolls that I crafted to look like them. I remember their astonished faces as they figured out that the dolls were indeed of them.
5: I've got one in mind that I'm not too prepared to talk about. i don't really remember the specifics, but what i do remember is my fathers punishment for my behavior. To keep me out of trouble he kept me locked up in the house and wouldn't let me go anywhere on my own. this caused me to became increasingly violent. one time i was cutting up some newspapers with scissors, and my dad walked by and i stabbed him in the leg. after that a court ordered me to an asylem, but my father wouldn't let them do that.
6: There were two kids named scout and Jem. they were walking home after a school play when a man named Bob Ewell tried to kill th because their father, Atticus, defended an African-American man in a case. He jumped out at them and tried to stab the little girl named Scout with a knife. But luckily the metal wiring on her costume protected her. He then attacked her brother, Jem. He broke Jem's arm before i got there, but once i did get there i took his knife and stabbed him. Scout ran off, so i just carried Jem home after that.
7: There aren't many items that are important to me. Actually, there aren't many things at all that I care for very much. If I had to choose something, I'd choose the blanket that I gave Scout. One night, Miss Maudie left her stove on and her house caught on fire. Scout and Jem watched the fire from atop a hill while their father helped with the fire. While the children were so entranced by the fire, I grabbed a blanket from my house. I crept outside and set the blanket on Scout. Neither Scout nor Jem noticed me there, so I went back home.
8: If I had to pick one other item of importance to me, it'd have to be these little sculptures I crafted. You see, Jem and Scout would pass by my house every time they'd go to school. I wanted to find some way to let them know I wasn't such a bad person without directly confronting them, so I'd leave the gifts in the knothole of a tree on Scout and Jem's path. The kids noticed the gifts and began to take them home with them. What they found really astonishing, above all other gifts I'd given them up to that point, were the wooden dolls that were of Scout and Jem.
9: "Will you take me home?" - Boo Radley
10: The quote that I chose from the book is "Will you take me home?". Boo Radley says this after he and Scout take Jem home from Mr. Ewell's assault. There are a number of reasons why I chose this quote. One reason is that it reflects how Boo Radley wants to stay inside and hide away from the outside world. Another reason I hose this quote is, quote simply, because this is the only thing that Boo Radley says throughout the novel. I think that this really adds to the effect of how Boo has enough courage to talk to Scout, but only Scout. It shows that he really cares for Scout and her brother. After Boo says this, Scout takes him home, and the door closes behind him, and not another word is spoken from Boo Radley again.
