How is Boo Radley an innocent person in "To Kill a Mockingbird"?
1 Answer | Add Yours
Boo Radley is an innocent by virtue of his lack of contact with society. He has been "shut away" from mainstream society for a number of years and has virtually no contact with anyone else.
It may be that Arthur Radley's mental status is not 100% creating a situation in that he is forever a child without the adult ability to reason. However, Boo does know right from wrong and makes a heroic effort to save the Finch children from the vicious attack made on them by Bob Ewell.
