Chapters 22,23,24 By: Sam, Lexi, Ryan,Donald & Nic Significant Quotes Character Development Page 235 Page 222 Page 225 Page 221 Chapter 22 Chapter 24 Chapter 23 Summary -Jem can’t hold back the injustice-fueled tears as he, Scout, and Dill go to meet Atticus outside the courthouse.
-Calpurnia finds food on the back steps when she arrives that morning, Atticus, a bit teary-eyed, tells her to thank everyone but tell them that there’s no need to be so generous, especially when times are so hard.
-Miss Maudie calls Jem over; Miss Stephanie butts in to ask them with rude questions, before Miss Maudie shuts her up and offers the kids some cake.
-Miss Maudie says that she knew Atticus wouldn’t win, but that he made the jury think about their decision for a long time, and that’s a baby step in the right direction.
-Aunt Alexandra tells the kids to get off the street, there’s trouble coming, and tells them that morning Mr. Ewell spit in Atticus’s face and told him that he had it out for him. -It’s the end of August, and Aunt Alexandra is hosting a missionary tea at the Finch house.
-Scout is indoors, Jem is occupied in teaching Dill to swim, and they’re skinny-dipping so they won’t let her come along.
-Aunt Alexandra, pleased that Scout managed to carry something without spilling, asks Scout to join them.
-Miss Stephanie asks Scout if she wants to be a lawyer, and Scout replies that she doesn’t want to be a lawyer, just a lady.
-Atticus comes home earlier than usual, and he’s not looking too good he tells them all that Tom Robinson is dead, he tried to climb over the prison fence and was shot.
-Aunt Alexandra composes herself and they go back into the tea party, acting as if nothing is wrong, and Scout joins them in their effort to keep up a ladylike attitude. "There's nothing more sickening to me than a low-grade white man who'll take advantage of a negro's ignorance. Don't fool yourselves-it's all adding up and one of these days we're going to pay the bill for it. I hope it's not in you children's time." "You might like to know there was one fellow who took considerable wearing down -in the beginning he was rain for an outright acquittal." "Because -He-Is-Trash, that's why you can't play with him. I'll not have you around him, picking up habits and learning Lord-Knows-What. You're enough of a problem to your father as it is." "Oh yes, the guards called him to stop. They fired a few shots in the air, then to kill. They got him just as he went over the fence. They said if he'd had to good arms he'd have made it, he was moving that fast. Seventeen bullet holes in him. They didn't have to shoot him that much. Cal, I want you to come out with me to tell Helen." Scout Finch: is a tomboy growing up in Maycomb. She says and does what she feels but always acts with her best intentions.
Jem Finch: is the courageous an intelligent older brother of Scout. He is a brave boy and always stands up for what he believes in.
Dill: is Scout's "fiance". He is a curious little boy who ran away from his father to be with Scout and tries to get Boo Radley to come out of his house. Aunt Alexandre :is Atticus' sister who tries to get Scout to act like a real girl instead of a tomboy to fit in with the other Maycomb girls. She is the complete opposite of Atticus as she is racist to coloured people and isn't easy going like Atticus.
Miss Maudie: is their next door neighbour who befriends Scout when Jem grows up and ignores her. Atticus Finch: is a very polite and intelligent man. He is well respected by some and hated by others, because he's fighting for the freedom of Tom Robinson who is black. He is the loving and caring father of Jem and Scout who takes care of them with the help of Calpuria, their maid. He teaches the kids the good and bad qualities of people and keeps them acting on their best behaviour at all times.
Calpurnia: is the caring black maid that helps Atticus take care of the kids. She is really easy going and loves the kids. She is the mother figure that Jem and Scout never had. -Atticus figures out that Jem and Scout are really terrified that Mr. Ewell willdo something to their father but Atticus tells them he thinks that Ewell’s done as much as he’s going to do, and after that the kids don’t feel scared any more.
-Atticus tells Jem and Scout that throughout their lives they’ll see plenty of instances of white men cheating black ones, but that any white man who does so is nothing more than trash.
-Atticus knows who kept the jury from convicting Tom right away, a cousin of Mr. Walter Cunningham.
-Scout decides to make friends with Walter Cunningham when school starts up again, but Aunt Alexandra says that Cunninghams are one class and the Finches are another, and tells Scout Walter is not allowed to come to their house.
-Jem tries to show off his new chest hair to Scout, even though Scout can’t see anything she doesn’t tell him.
-Jem says that he thinks he’s got it figured out, and there are four kinds of people, the ordinary(the Finches and neighbors), the ones who live in the woods (the Cunninghams), the ones who live by the dump (the Ewells).
-The confusing way people act makes Jem think he finally understands why Boo Radley never comes out because he wants to stay in, away from the weirdness that is humankind. Themes Growing up Aunt Alexandra is trying to get Scout to act grown up and act like a lady, rather than a young tomboy. She told her dress like a lady (wear dresses), and use manners like a grown woman Racism/ hatred towards black people The court ruled Tom Robinson guilty of raping Mayella Ewell, just because he's black. That lead to Tom attempting to run over the prison wall and getting shot 17 times, which killed him. Also Atticus told Jem that he would see white men cheat black men every day of his life, because the white people hated the black people. Literary Elements Allusion Atticus remarks that that the inhabitants of the White House don't have chicken for breakfast. Symbolism Dill declares that he wants to be a clown when he grows up, but the clown actually symbolizes a continuance of youth and of delaying the onset of adulthood. Also, the two little cakes baked by Miss. MAudie represent rewards for Jem and Scout. Humor After Bob Ewell spits in Atticus' face he says "I Wish Bob Ewell wouldn't chew tobacco" as a joke.
Irony: You would expect Atticus to be mad or furious about the situation but he is the calm one about the whole thing. Hypocritical Miss. Maudie stands up to Mrs. Merriweather for being hypocritical about helping thise unfortunates in Africa while ignoring and looking down upon African Americans in Maycomb County. Simile Mrs. Merriweather played her voice like an organ.
