Examples of Empathy in To Kill a Mockingbird

Examples of Empathy in To Kill a Mockingbird | To Kill A Mockingbird | Scoop.it

Empathy is defined as identifying with another person's feelings, or emotionally placing one's self in the place of another. The trait is a theme in Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird...."

 

The overall character of Atticus Finch is an example of how empathy is used in the novel. He displays empathy in his strong beliefs of racial equality, which was uncommon in the 1930s in Alabama.

Define in your own words; what  is empathy?  Give an example in your life from a movie, book or TV show you have seen.
