Many Southern authors of Harper Lee's time period wrote very autobiographical works. This led me to wonder how much Harper Lee's personal life was reflected in the narrative of To Kill A Mockingbird. After some research, I was not able to find much. However, I found some information to suggest that she had lived near the location of an event like the one written about in To Kill A Mockingbird; her father was a lawyer, like Atticus; she was a tomboy, like Scout; and she had a neighbor down the street who left things in trees, similar to what Boo Radley does in the book. I have not found sources that go into a greater analysis of the similarities. This leads me to ask:
How did Lee's personal experience affect the narrative of To Kill A Mockingbird?
