About this item

Nominada por los estadounidenses como una de las 100 mejores novelas en la serie de PBS The Great American Read.En una ciudad del sur de los Estados Unidos, en la época de la Gran Depresión, una mujer blanca acusa de violación a un hombre negro. Aunque la inocencia del hombre resulta evidente, el resultado del juicio es tan previsible que ningún abogado haría nada para evitarla... excepto Atticus Finch, el ciudadano más respetable de la ciudad. Su compasiva defensa le cuesta muchas amistades, pero le otorga el respeto y la admiración de sus dos hijos, huérfanos de madre. ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONHarper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel—a black man charged with the ****** of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice—but the weight of history will only tolerate so much.One of the best-loved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many dis-tinctions since its original publication in 1960.It has won the Pulitzer Prize, been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie. It was also named the best novel of the twentieth century by librarians across the country (Library Journal).
