To Kill A Mockingbird- Dill

Extracts from this document...


Permit me to introduce myself; i am Charles Baker Harris, known to my friends simply as Dill. I did live with mother and stepfather; however I prefer to think of the friends and freedom of Maycomb, Alabama as my home- where I feel more important and more importantly wanted. In terms of my parents "They do get on a lot better without me, I cannot help them any" As Francis says about me, "He hasn't got a home; he just gets passed around from relative to relative."

I couldn't understand why anyone would want to be so cruel to another human being. ...read more.


I contributed to the story when I am significant to the story because i am somewhat of an outsider looking at the events occurring in the small town of Maycomb.

If there is one thing you should know about me is family support and love is something I value very dearly, having been shown the qualities of a good family through my interactions and experiences with the Finches. I am prepared to take questions regarding myself and my life. ?? ?? ?? ?? Charles Baker Harris (Dill) ...read more.
