I am having great fun re-reading some of the classics of high school literature as my daughter is reading them. We've had some great father-daughter moments the past two years. However, I have a question for anyone familiar with To Kill a Mockingbird, that most archtypical high school book. On the blurb on the back of the version I own, it says that Harper Lee just considered the book a "simple love story". I really am having trouble seeing that. Atticus obviously loves his kids and is doing his best to raise them for the New South, but it's not a love story. Lee is not really in love with the south or its rhythms. Any idea of what the love story is in this work?
