Chapter 19 To Kill a Mockingbird Summary -Tom testifies on his behalf -His story is totally different from that of Mayella -Link Deas, Tom' s long time white employer states that in his eight years he has never had a problem with Tom -Mr. Gilmer gets Tom to admit that he has the strength to "choke the breath out of a woman and sling her to the floor" -Tom says that the reason he helped Mayella with her chores was because he felt sorry for her -Mr. Gilmer accuses Tom of lying about everything -Dill begins to cry so Scout takes him out of the courtroom -Scout and Dill encounter Mr. Dolphus Raymond Literary Techniques Questions ? Why don't Scout and Jem want Atticus to know they are at the trial? Why does Mr. Gilmer address Tom only as "boy"? What is Link Deas opinion of Tom? Why was Tom afraid to push Mayella out of the way? Why is Dill crying? How old is Tom? How many kids does he have? Why was Tom in trouble with the law before? Page 218. Hyperbole - "Mayella Ewell must have been the lonliest person in the world." Page 218. Similie - "She was as sad as what Jem called a mixed child." Page 218. Similie - "She couldn't live like Mr. Dolphus Raymond.." Page 219. Metaphor - "Tom was soft black velvet."

Character Development - Tom Robinson symbolizing innocence, even though everyone except Atticus thinks he's guilty. - The bible which Tom takes his oath on symbolizes justice, like it does in all court rooms. It is used to symbolize in this case Tom isn't getting any justice that he deserves. - Unlike the Ewells, Tom is hardworking and honest and has enough compassion to make the fatal mistake of feeling sorry for Mayella - Dill's character isn't developing at all. He can't grow up. It brings him to tears just seeing how Mr. Gilmer treats Tom on the stand.
