What sounds fill Scouts head?

What visions fill Scouts head?

Two traits that describe Scout.

Feb 2nd, 2015

1 a) Every night-sound Scout heard from my cot on the back porch was magnified three-fold; 

every scratch of feet on gravel was Boo Radley seeking revenge, 

every passing Negro laughing in the night was Boo Radley loose and after us; i

nsects splashing against the screen were Boo Radley's insane fingers picking the wire to pieces; 

the chinaberry trees were malignant, hovering, alive. (6.84)

b) In Scout's mind, the whole world becomes dangerous, every sound signaling a threat. 

And later, when Scout realizes that it was Boo who brought her a blanket, she's nearly sick, as if realizing that she had just walked along the edge of a cliff in the dark and only survived by chance. 

Sure, this is partly just every kid's fear of the monster under the bed. (And not these monsters.) 

But it also seems linked to Scout's fear that there might be unknown dangers lurking in the familiar—like the ugly racism simmering under Maycomb's surface.


c. Confident and tough,intelligent 

Well I could also add a few other traits - thoughtful, good tomboy
