Tory Scott's insight:

"Courage" by Anne Sexton depicts Dill because little things like crying for a black person in front of the entirety of the town is courageous. He understands that colored men and women aren't respected, but he doesn't care what the town might think because he knows that the disrespect for someone different from yourself is wrong.

I searched this song a few days ago and couldn't find any versions with the words on it so I decided to make one with the lyrics. Please send any request to ...
Tory Scott's insight:

"Cat's in the Cradle" is a song a about a child who is neglected by by his father and grows up like him because he wasn't taught any better. Dill doesn't feel loved by anyone in his family, and will most likely not know how to take care of his children properly because he wasn't how to.

Tory Scott's insight:

This price of art depicts simeon running away. The person doesn't have much with him and it looks like he has been running for awhile from where he is in the field. Dill runs away with hardly anything but himself, and the trip from Meridian, Mississippi to Maycomb County, Alabama is a long one.

Tory Scott's insight:

I think Dill would enjoy looking for sand crabs because you have to dig fast to find what your looking for, and when you do you feel pleasure. Dill always wants to know more about Boo Radley, and when he learns about a new part of Boo he creates a plan to meet him.just like you never want to stop searching for sand crabs, Dill never wants to stop discovering more about Boo Radley.
