Is To Kill a Mockingbird a positive or negative commentary on human nature? with examples please
I would say that the book offers a "hopeful view" of human nature. One of the most disappointing elements of the book is the idea that Tom Robinson's trial represents a "baby step" of progress. I take this a rather thin gruel in terms of moral and social progress and, in my view, the trial, the unchecked casual racism of the language employed by nearly all the characters, and the repeated concern for moral judgment are all indicative of a negative commentary on humanity.
