Transcript of Untitled Prezi
emphasizes theme of protection
Mr. Underwood was aware of the brawl that may happen below his window involving a pummeling of Tom Robinson.
Atticus was sitting outside Toms cell when the men arrived.
Although Mr. Underwood would have had no objections to the mob beating up Mr. Robinson Atticus would have been involved and possibly hurt.
His instinct to protect his friend was stronger than the hatred he has for colored people Excitement
A giant joyous picnic is taking place with food, soda pop and biscuits.
Scout describes it as a "gala occasion" when they enter the town.
Everybody seems giddy and are eager for the trial to begin.
This is disturbing because people are acting like there a carnival or circus has come to town when in fact a very serious trial determining a mans freedom or possibly his and his families life. Scout describes the Maycomb county courthouse slightly reminiscent of Arlington.
Scout judges that the Greek revivel columns clash with the modern 19th century clock tower.
An indicator that the people of Maycomb are nostalgic of the past The men in the Finch's yard are talking about the upcoming court date, Monday, and how to keep Tom safe from Maycomb's racist citizens until then. From their conversation, the reader can infer that much of the town is outraged at Tom's "actions" against Mayelle Ewell. Atticus and others are concerned that on Monday there will be trouble in the streets, either it be mobs, lynchings or just chaos. Mr. Heck Tate is feeling uneasy about all of the possible scenarios. Atticus, who regularly walks everywhere in Maycomb for exercise, takes the car to go "out for a while" and leaves explaining he'll be home later that night. Jem, Scout and Dill being curious, stealthily follow Atticus and discover him reading in his office. Shortly after, many vehicles appear and men hop out of them in twos, and they approach Atticus discussing the protection of Tom and Mr. Tate's whereabouts. Later, Jem thinks there is something wrong because he is frightened, and worried Atticus is in danger. Many men meet at the jail and talk with Atticus. Scout hears the conversation, and with critical thinking, we can discover what they're talking about. They have come to the jail to discuss Tom Robinson. The men tell Atticus of a snipe hunt involving Mr. Tate, and ask Atticus to step aside and let them at Tom Robinson, who is sleeping soundly in Atticus's office. What they would do with Tom is unknown, but from their behavior we can assume it is not pleasant. In anticipation of the motive of the mob Atticus sits in waiting outside of Tom Robinson's cell. The men try and get Atticus to move away from the door. Atticus was protecting Tom from an awful beating possibly leading to death while all the time Mr. Underwood was watching from above with a loaded shotgun daring the men to harm Atticus. Aside from the case, many different characters protected others. Jem & Scout protected Atticus twice from the men who wanted to get at Tom Robinson, and Atticus protects Culpurnia from Alexandra, who says she is no longer needed. - Atticus asks if Mr. Tate called a doctor
- then why he chose not to call a doctor? wouldn't that be considered protocol in this situation?
-and finally he asked him to please identify what kind of injuries the victim had sustained. -Mr. Ewell was sarcastic, stubborn and arrogant on the witness stand.
-Judge Taylor was not impressed he had proper uptight tone and wanted to continue with business.
-Mr. Ewells became increasingly argumentative, and eventually Judge Taylor became cross and authoritative. - to help Atticus determine whether or not Mr. Ewell was left handed
- this information was needed because the victim was most likely attacked by a left handed person
- this provded more evidence for Atticus to work with. "Judge Taylor was on the bench looking like a sleepy old shark-"
