The themes of 'To Kill A Mockingbird' are represented in this graphic created in Wordle by M. LaFleche. 

 

Introduction

A novel is nothing unless it has one or more themes woven onto the pages.  A theme can be summarized as a lesson learned at the end of the story.  Themes vary from novel to novel.  Some common themes in novels today include racism, predjudice, life, love, loss, morality etc.  Harper Lee embeds several themes onto the pages of her novel To Kill A Mockingbird.
