Chapter 10 To Kill A Mockingbird
Transcript of Chapter 10 To Kill A Mockingbird
Atticus- "Atticus is a gentleman, just like me!"
Jem- "I reckon if he wanted us to know it, he'd tell us."
Scout- "There was nothing Jem or I could say when our classmates said"My Father-"
This chapter has two themes, one being to not be ashamed of your own family, and the second one being to not flaunt your God-given talents unnecessarily, both which apply to Scout and add to her knowledge.
feeble:weak and infirm;lacking energy
Her dad was old and
Inconspicuous:not easily noticed
in the back of the room.
''He moved like an underwater swimmer'' -simile
''The school buzzed''-personification
Towards the end of the chapter, Scout and Jem learn that Atticus used to be great at shooting targets and is more humble than they thought, due to the fact that he never spoke a word about it. The audience as well learns more about Atticus' character in this chapter.
In chapter ten, Jem and Scout learn that their father is more modest than they understood. When scout begins to become frustrated with the fact that her father is older and more "boring" than those of her friends, she asks Miss Maudie about her father's past and talents and
isn't impressed when she learns that he's good at checkers and playing the harp. Miss Maudie also leaves out the fact that Atticus was the best gunman in town, leaving her to find out in the case of emergency.
Jem and Scout learn that their father used to be amazing at shooting targets, making it a subplot to their situation with Boo Radley. Atticus also also mentions briefly not to shoot at mockingbirds and why, foreshadowing the entire plot of the story through symbolism.
