To Kill a Mockingbird- Chapter 20
Transcript of To Kill a Mockingbird- Chapter 20
By; Owen, Kylie, Rocky In Chapter 20, Dill is sick over the way Tom Robinson is treated in court so he runs out the courthouse crying and Scout follows to comfort him. When they go outside, they meet Dolphus Raymond who invited Dill to take a drink out of the paper bag that suspected to be alcohol, but then it turns out to be only Coca-Cola. The children ask why Dolphus lets everyone think that he is an alcoholic and he says that it helps to give people a reason on why he takes African- American people into his home, if everyone thinks he's an alcoholic, they'll just think his judgment is impaired, and he doesn't quite realize his "wrong" in corresponding with African- Americans. Dill and Scout walk back into the courtroom and find Atticus giving his closing statement where he proclaims that all man are created equal, and the jury should use their logic and free Tom Robinson, not basing their decision on prejudice. "But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal- there is one human institution that makes a Pauper the equal of the Rockefeller.......That institution, gentlemen, is a court." ~Atticus http://www.discoveryeducation.com/free-puzzlemaker/?CFID=598471&CFTOKEN=60485918 " Secretly, Ms. Finch, I'm not much of a drinker, but you see they could never, never understand that I live like I do because that's the way I want to live."
~ Dolphus Raymond " Cry about the simple hell people give other people without even thinking. Cry about the hell white people give colored folks, without even stopping to think that they're people, too."
~ Dolphus Raymond Atticus Finch Abraham Lincoln was a president from 1861- 1865, and one of his utmost objectives during the period of the Civil War, is that he wanted to free African Americans from the shackles of slavery. That relates him to Atticus because of the trial in which he defends Tom Robinson's case despite the fact that some members of the general public look upon it and see that Atticus is differing from the perspective of many in the the community on how different ethnic minorities should be treated. Throughout the whole chapter, Atticus has, ultimately, not really changed much. Atticus continued following, the firm ideal of defending a man as an equal to any other man, no matter race, gender, or religion and he brings this perspective upon his children giving them the same ideal, staying the great father that he is from the beginning of the book, to the end. Atticus can be closely related to the literary character, The Friar, in Romeo and Juliet because The Friar defended both the Montague and Capulets in Romeo and Juliet's decision to get married without regarding the names of their families or their powers and bases his judgment not on their differences, but on the sole fact that they should be sough out as equals, no matter whose family they come from.
