      Heredity acts as a fateful hand, molding Tess’ life with ancestral control. In addition, Alec represents the corruption in nobility. His advancement upon Tess against her willpower gives the d’Urberville name a negative connotation, and these sins he commits reflect a repetition of the sins of prior generations. Good and Evil. To Kill a Mockingbird is an exploration of human morality, and presents a constant conversation regarding the inherent goodness or evilness of people. Atticus, father of Scout and Jem, also plays the role of teacher, for his children and his town. Atticus believes that people usually contain aspects of both good and evil, but that good will usually prevail.
