Main Point #1
...,he was his
''But they don't have to go to the courthouse and
Wallow~ to live self-indulgently
Cynical~ showing contempt for accepted standards of honesty or morality by one's actions, especially by actions that exploit the scruples of others.
Miss Maudie wants Jem to know that his father is appreciated even though it may not seem like it. Miss Maudie tries to defend Scout, Dill, and Jem when Miss Stephanie gossips about them. Miss Maudie is very cordial and honest, but on the other hand very gregarious. People like Miss Stephanie whisper in her ear but she never falls for it. I think Miss Maudie is very aunt like. She is very caring, but when she needs to be she can be strict or demanding. She is a flat character.
Man vs. Society
Jem is dissappointed at Judge Taylor's decision and blames the town for not being Christian like and helping Tom Robinson.
Jem dissapproved of the court's decision and swears he will be a real Christian lawyer when he grows up.
To Kill a Mockingbird Chapter 22
Main Point #2
Mr. Bob Ewell is determined to get Atticus as long as he shall live, even if it takes his life.
Main Point #4
Lots of the colored folks were appreciative for Atticus defending Tom Robinson even though he lost. They gave him lots of food as gifts of appreciation.
Main Point #3
Jem made a
noise in his throat.
Feral~ of or characteristic of wild animals; ferocious; brutal
''Don't you oh well me, sir,'' Miss Maudie replied, recognizing Jem's
noises, ''you are not old enough to appreciate what I said.''
Fatalistic~of or relating to fatalism
Fatilism~ the belief that all events are predetermined and therefore inevitable
The theme of this chapter is rebellion. Jem felt rebellious after the trial and swore to become a better Christian lawyer when he's grown. When Dill saw Miss Stephanie gossiping about them ,he swore to become a clown to laugh at them. Mr. Bob Ewells rebelled against Atticus and spit in his face and threatened him.
It took place on August 17th, 1935. The setting is in Maycomb, Alabama the day after the trial. It happened in front and inside of Miss Maudie's house. The weather was sunny but there was tension in the air. It was morning and people were starting to come out. It seemed safe but it wasn't when they found out about Bob Ewells and Atticus' meeting.
The author's attitude toward this chapter is rebellion. The chapter makes you feel as if the tension is unbearable. Miss Maudie, being the peacekeeper, is trying to resolve the tension but it just gets worse with the rumours going around.
Simile: ,"It's like bein' a caterpillar in a cocoon."
Main Point #5
Miss Maudie is trying to elucidate to the children about what their father is doing and why he's doing it.
