Atticus seems to be firmly involved in the idea of justice. He feels justice should be available to everyone. Yet, in this novel, the injustices are more apparent than justice. The social inequality that exists in the case of Tom Robinson is wholly evident. Yet there is also the question of justice in the treatment of Boo Radley. He has been the victim of injustice, first at the hands of his cruel father, and then as the subject of public ridicule and speculation. While there is some redemption in his name in the end of the novel, one should question whether justice has been served.
