To Kill A Mockingbird Chapters 1-6
Transcript of To Kill A Mockingbird Chapters 1-6
1. Theme: courage
3. Characterization: Atticus
Scout, Dill, and Jem had a lot of courage to go to the Radley House and try to give Boo Radley a note. Even when they heard all the stories about how crazy he was, they still tried to contact him and go see him. Also, they went to the Radley House at night by them selves to try and see Boo after the note to him failed.
This is on pages 69-72
The Radley house symbolizes mystery and fear
No one will go in the Radley house and some people try to take another road just to avoid walking by it. Everyone is afraid of the house and it is very run down and scary. Dill, Scout, and Jem became interested with the Radleys, especially Boo, when people told them the stories about what happened to Boo and the whole family. It is a big mystery to them if Boo still lives there and is sending them messages, and if all the stories they have been told about the house are true.
Atticus is a very wise gentleman who always sticks up for what he believes in. He is a lawyer in Maycomb who treats every person fairly no matter who they are. On page 43 Scout says Atticus was home schooled and knew everything and he also served in the state legislature. On page 60, Scout says he never drank a drop, and Mod says he always acts the same in his house as he does in public (page 61).
The Ewells have a reputation for not going to school. They only show up on the first day and they are the disgrace of Maycomb for three generations. The father spends his government relief check on whiskey, leaving his kids hungry, so the town allow him to hunt out of season to feed his family.
"They were people but they lived like animals"
"tinfoil was sticking in a knot-hole at eye level, winking at me in the afternoon sun." (p.44)
The personifcation of the tinfoil is a way to show much Scout is drawn to the knot-hole by the items that Boo Radley is placing there for her and Jem.
