This paper provides an overview of "To Kill a Mockingbird," Harper Lee's view of racism in the post-war American South. This essay briefly touches on and discusses the symbolism, themes, conflicts of the main characters, context of the story and includes comparisons with other race-related literary works published at the time. The paper considers that this suggests Lee's novel was making a political statement - however palatable.

From the Paper:

""To Kill a Mockingbird" was authored by Harper Lee. Presumably written in the mid-to-late 1950s, first published in 1960, the novel is set in Macomb County, Alabama, depicting Southern racial tensions in post-war America. Although Lee's book has pretensions of rising above the crime genre, largely by way of its social-commentary-first manifesto, it would most comfortably sit on the classic noir shelf alongside of several crossover classics."
