Harper Lee's only published novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, was immediately successful when it was published in 1960. It won the Pulitzer Prize the next year and has become a classic of modern American Literature. The Plot and the characters are loosely based on the author's observations of her family and neighbours, as well as an event that occurred near her hometown in 1936, when she was ten years old. As a Southern Gothic novel and a Bildungsroman, the primary themes of To Kill a Mockingbird involve racial in justice and the destruction of innocence. The novel is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with the serious issues of rape and racial inequality. Yet literary analysis of this "astonishing phenomenon" has been sparse. This critical analysis of the novel is probably the first–the only–Indian attempt to unravel the mystery of Harper Lee and To Kill a Mockingbird. It explores and examines the text as well as the background of race relations in the United States, as also the critical problems associated with it.
