S: ARTHUR RADLEY
FC: ArthurBoo Radley
1: My name is Arthur Radley, (commonly known to my neighbors as boo Radley). I grew up in the small town of Maycomb, Alabama.Where sadly, I've lived all my life. Unlike the rest of the town, I know nothing of the gossip and fun around town, for I never leave my house anymore. When I was a young boy, I was put on house arrest by the court of Maycomb, and my father.
2: In my free time, I like to clip magazine pieces for my scrap-book. I'm a really nice person, but people think I'm scary because I look wretched. That's something I can't help because my mother and brother refuse to let me leave the house. I really would like to play with my neighbors scout and Jem. I hate to admit it but I have a child-like demeanor. I am extremely shy and would die if I was the center of attention.
3: Stephanie Crawford | Stephanie, the town scold, spread a lot of rumors about me. She makes up wild stories, I find it hard to believe people actually fall for. Once she told everyone I stabbed my father in the legs with scissors, then continued making my scarp-book. Then as her source she "claimed" my mother ran out into the street screaming, " he's trying to kill us all". What a crazy woman.
4: Scout Finch | Scout, like myself, is often misunderstood, but she is a very smart, strong hearted girl. She even walked me home and made it seem like I was walking her, not to spur new ideas into Stephanie head. I admire her free-sprite personality.
5: Happenings.... | When the fire occurred at Mrs. Maudie's house, I knew I needed to help. I was afraid to go help put out the fire. Then,I saw Scout and Jem standing on the corner,in the cold, so I got a blanket and draped it around Scout. She didn't even notice me or the blanket.
6: Happenings Continued....... My brother Robert tried to shoot Jem because he was inside our yard in the middle of the night. He proved that the radleys are not bad people, when he sewed up Jem's pants when they were left in our backyard.
7: Artifacts The town gossips about me, and says that I stabbed my father with a pair of scissors.
8: As a gift for Jem and scout I made them these soap dolls.
9: “Know what'd happen then? All the ladies in Maycomb includin' my wife'd be knocking on his door bringing angel food cakes. To my way of thinkin', Mr. Finch, taking the one man who's done you and this town a great service an' draggin' him with his shy ways into the limelight – to me, that's a sin. It's a sin and I'm not about to have it on my head. If it was any other man, it'd be different. But not this man, Mr. Finch" (lee 276). Boo Radley is a very shy, insecure man who has a child-like demeanor. At heart he is kind and genuine.
10: Boo is often taken to be something that he is not. many people understands this and would like to let him keep his comfort tone, like Mr.Tate
