After the fire is over, how does Miss Maudie feel about the destruction of her house? What does this tell you about her character values ?
1 Answer | Add Yours
When her house is destroyed, Miss Maudie does not mourn over her loss. The things she lost were just possessions which could be replaced. She was glad no one was hurt and that the fire did not spread. She was a pragmatic character who knew the value of life over the value of possessions. Life continued, and it was a blessing. The most important thing to her was the outpouring of care and help offered by her neighbors even to Boo Radley wrapping a blanket around a cold child at the scene.
