        To Kill a Mockingbird Part 1 | Crash Course Literature #210

        In which John Green teaches you about Harper Lee's famous novel, To Kill a Mockingbird (video one of two). John will cover a bit about Harper Lee's personal life, seeing as this novel has some autobiographical elements, and her long association with Truman Capote, who figures as a character in the book. You'll get an overview of the plot, and we'll talk a bit about Mockingbird as an example of bildungsroman and Southern Gothic, and look into the novel as a commentary on the racism and patriarchy of the Alabama in which Harper Lee grew up.
