dont personality traits describe you as a person?

make sure to include in your paper, project, whatever, why the child was named after a pickle. Was it because he was soaked in vinegar and other minerals as a small child, or perhaps his odd greenness bumpyness? If this is the case, explain why he was not called Toad instead.

there was another thread in the pit about To Kill a Mockingbird a few minutes ago. Maybe you should talk to that guy.

Sorry that's all I can really remember. You're the one with the book.

i acutally read it today, our teacher would read it to us out loud everyday. its just that dill doesnt have much detailed stuff about him and the detailed stuff about him i already got.
i tried all the sites, they suck if your trying to study anyone other than scout or atticus.

Well you're not really going to be able to find out much information about him that wasn't in the book. That's like researching made up ****. and that's a waste of time. you can make up **** yourself... can't you?

edit: wtf what happened to being allowed to say shit?

Think Truman Capote. Dill was based off of him.
At the Justice Tour:
Guy in audience: Libertyville represent!
Tom Morello: Yes. Libertyville…represent.

Supposedly he was based on Truman Capote.

he actually was so i find it EXTREMELY ironic he wanted to marry scout, but scout was a hardcore tom boy so it kinda gave you signs that he was gay cause he liked the tom boys.
#17
Dill is a small, young boy who lives next door to Scout and Jem. He seems intelligent.


From Truman Capote wiki:

Capote remained a lifelong friend of his Monroeville neighbor Harper Lee, and he based the character of Idabel in Other Voices, Other Rooms on her. He in turn was the inspiration for the character Dill, in Lee's 1960 bestselling, Pulitzer prize-winning To Kill a Mockingbird. Like Capote, Dill is creative, bold and had an unsatisfactory family history. In an interview with Lawrence Grobel, Capote recalled his childhood, "Mr. and Mrs. Lee, Harper Lee's mother and father, lived very near. Harper Lee was my best friend. Did you ever read her book, To Kill a Mockingbird? I'm a character in that book, which takes place in the same small town in Alabama where we both lived."

copy pasta much?
that doesnt help at ALL.
anyways i did find it, but maybe we can discuss the book. i found it very ironic alot for example when aunt alexandra and her "missionary" friends got together and talked about the people in africa and how they were soo poor and they had nothing and yet they were treating those same black people like **** in their own town.

Ooh, this is important because it shows how lonely he is and how he wishes for a family, hence why he wants to marry Scout and find a baby on the island.

That may have been intentional on the author's part as well.

the author at the time didnt know he was gay when she wrote the book i think.
