Harper Lee - An Unexpected Chapter
Art History Week
For over five decades, it was Harper Lee and her book. Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, published in 1960, has earned its author generations of readers, worldwide acclaim, a Pulitzer Prize and highest honors from two presidents. It has been translated into over 40 languages and sold more than 30 million copies. It has seen adaptations on stage and screen, both of which have gone on to form their own traditions and receive their own accolades. Through Mockingbird, Lee has challenged us to consider and reconsider racial inequality, gender roles, the nature of justice, and the loss of innocence. Lee's words are as relevant today as they were when she put them down in mid-century Alabama, and the lessons are still as keenly felt in 2015.
While Lee has written more since then, she has made it clear that Mockingbird's pages contained everything she felt she had to say. As far as the world was concerned, Harper Lee had written her book, and that was that. It

Boo Radley: A Heroic Monomyth
            In Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird Arthur ‘Boo’ Radley is an urban boogeyman figure in Maycomb County. Children gossip about his infamous deeds, alleging that he wanders the streets at night to look for squirrels and cats to feast on, and that he once stabbed his father in the leg with a pair of scissors. However, in spite of (or because of) these misgivings, Arthur wanders on a figurative hero’s journey, also known as the heroic monomyth, throughout the plot of the book. And to do so, he does not have to wander more than a couple of blocks from the Radley’s porch.
            In the heroic monomyth – coined by Joseph Campbell and inspired by the words of James Joyce’s Finnigan’s Wake  – there are three distinct sections, the first of which is the ‘Departure’ (ThinkQuest). However,

Never Grow Up
Rachael, or 'Dixie' as she was known to her friends and family, Grayson sat in front of a mirror in the changing room backstage at Gotham Academy. This was nothing out of the ordinary since she was due to perform in Gotham Academy's Junior Talent Show that evening, but if you were to look a little closer you would see that things were not as normal as it seemed. Dixie sat in the chair in silence, her back turned to others in the room and her head down so that nobody would see her face in the mirror. The nine year tried to calm herself knowing that she was up after the next performance. She just couldn't understand it.
More tears slipped down the girl's pale cheeks as she thought of him. Her new guardian, Bruce Wayne, had promised that he would attend the talent show to watch her sing. He had promised and yet now he wasn't coming. A teacher had just come to inform her that they had received a phone call telling them that the man had been caught up at work and was therefore
