Transcript of To Kill a Mockingbird(Chapter 11)

In this chapter, Jem is told he must read to Mrs. Dubose, an old lady that harasses Jem and Scout each time they walk past her house. Jem is forced to read to Mrs. Dubose as punishment after he destroyed her front yard because Mrs. Dubose had made rude comments about Atticus and his defending of Tom Robinson; a black man. During their time together, Mrs. Dubose often has these fits which later were due to withdrawal symptoms of morphine. After her death, Atticus teaches his children about courage and uses Mrs. Dubose as an example.
Chapter Summary
-Mrs. Dubose house
Plot Significance
This chapter is significant to the plot because it shows how Jem and Scout witness and understand courage. It also demonstrates Atticus's wish for them to judge a person's character by both their good qualities as well as their bad ones and to understand their situation. Mrs. Dubose appears to be rude and judgemental but also has a gentle side. She also illustrates a tremendous amount of courage through her elimination of her morphine addiction at the cost of more pain cast upon herself.
