To Kill a Mockingbird was published in 1960 and, instantly successful in the United States, it is widely read in high schools and middle schools. It has become a classic of modern American literature, winning the Pulitzer Prize. The plot and characters are loosely based on Lee's observations of her family, her neighbors and an event that occurred near her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, in 1936, when she was ten.

《杀死一只知更鸟》是一部于1960年出版的小说,由美国作家哈珀·李创作,荣获当年度普利策奖。此书刚出版便获得极大成功,取材自作者对其家人与邻居的观察以及发生在作者10岁时(1936年)故乡附近的一起事件。虽然故事题材涉及种族不平等与强暴等严肃议题,其文风仍温暖风趣。小说以六岁小女孩丝考特·芬奇的视角来叙事,她的父亲阿提克斯·芬奇在书中为道德端正的角色,亦是正直律师的典范。一名评论家如此解释小说有巨大影响力的原因:“在二十世纪,《杀死一只知更鸟》大概是美国最广为阅读的种族相关书籍,而它的主角阿提克斯·芬奇则塑造了种族正义最不朽的小说形象”。
