To Kill A Mockingbird: Chapter 27-29
Transcript of To Kill A Mockingbird: Chapter 27-29
(The snow and the fire)
-Bob Ewell is a coward like his son, Burris, and only goes after the weak (Helen) instead of men who can fight back (atticus)
-Scout says that the events don't concern her family but it's her family that bob swore revenge on so it foreshadows his revenge “I think I understand…, It might be because he knows in his heart that very few people in Maycomb really believed his and Mayella’s yarns. He thought he’d be a hero, but all he got for his pain was...…was, okay, we’ll convict this Negro but get back to your dump…. He’ll settle down when the weather changes.” (P. 263) Connection: Miss Maudie- "You'd be surprised how many of us do." (Chapter 23, Page. 228)
Atticus' underestimation of good and bad Literary Devices FORESHADOWING Aunt Alexandra Irony Maycomb County: Ad Astra Per Aspera Republicans and Democrats Allusions WPA and the NRA Simile/Allusion “I’m about as Radical as Cotton Tom Heflin.” What
Do? Atticus isn’t worried about Bob Ewell
attacking them, which is one of Atticus’
flaws. He underestimates the bad in
people, why does he do this, especially
when another person would be showing
more caution? “High above us in the darkness a solitary mocker poured out his
repertoire in blissful unawareness of whose tree he sat in....“ Pg.268 -Reinforces idea of innocence
-Singing different bird calls
-Pleasing others “She made me feel awful, but when Jem came to fetch me he was sympathetic... Jem was becoming almost as good as Atticus at making you feel right when things wrong.” Pg. 273 -Represents Jem's growth from beginning
-> Seed of Empathy
-Becoming like Atticus
-Lying in order to make her feel better "I wondered why Atticus had
not brought a chair for the man....this one was probably more comfortable where he was." pg.280 -Atticus' Empathy
-Connection: Walter Cunningham
-Connection: Atticus' reaction to
seeing Jem VS. Bob's reaction to
seeing Mayella Page 270: “I wanted to bob for apples, but Cecil said it wasn’t sanitary. His mother has said he might catch something from everybody’s heads having been in the same tub.” -Symbolizes disease motif
-cecil already has it
-ignorance/innocence of scout This chapter is the calm before the storm. How can you tell, using specific examples, that something important and bad is going to happen? Why does the author do this? literary devices Foreshadowing/Symbolism "There was no moon....the street light in the corner cast sharp corners on the Radley House." Pg. 268 Foreshadowing “There were several discomforts, though: it was hot, it was a close fit; if my nose itches I couldn’t scratch it; and once inside I could not get out of it alone.” “We turned the corner and I tripped on a root growing in the road.” “-this was the stillness before a thunderstorm” Irony The pageant; “from the mud to the stars.” What do the circumstances of Bob’s death tell us about the themes of Good and Evil, Innocence and corruptness and how they interact? Who is at fault for creating the Maycomb disease? “Atticus seemed to be talking in his sleep. His age was beginning to show, his one sign of inner turmoil: the strong line of his jaw melted a little…one noticed not his jet black hair but the gray patches growing at the temples.” -Scout noticing change
-His actions finally taking a toll
on Atticus -In Physical Shock -He loves his kids more than
himself “They were white hands, sickly white hands that had never seen the sun, so white they stood out garishly against the dull cream wall in the dim light of Jem’s room…His cheeks were thin to hollowness, his mouth was wide; there were shallow almost delicate indentations at his temple, and his gray eyes were so colorless I thought he was blind…. When I pointed at him his palms slipped slightly, leaving greasy sweat streaks on the wall, and he hooked his thumbs in his belt….as I gazed at him in wonder the tension slowly drained from his face.” -Looks like a ghost
-Symptoms of Maycombs disease
-"Dead and thin"
-Nervous "Don’t like to contradict you, Mr. Finch— wasn’t crazy, mean as hell. Low-down skunk with enough liquor in him to make him brave enough to kill children.He’d never have met you face to face."…"He had guts enough to pester a poor colored woman, he had guts enough to pester Judge Taylor when he thought the house was empty, so do you think he’da met you to your face in daylight?" - Humor
- Bob's cowardice
- Atticus' underestimation of bad Literary
Devices Simile: “if we followed our feelings all the time we’d be like cats chasin’ their tails.” Alliteration: “A strange small spasm shock him.” Humor Page 283: “Mr. Finch, there’s just some kind of men you have to shoot before you can say hidy to ‘em. Even then, they ain’t worth the bullet it takes to shoot ‘em. Ewell ‘as one of ‘em.” “Cecil Jacobs. He scared us once tonight, an’ we thought it was him again. He had a sheet. They gave a quarter for the best costume, I don’t know who won it-.” ARTHUR RADLEY monster cat eater crazy vicious killer Evil Wall KNOT HOLE JEM
