Transcript of "To Kill A Mockingbird" Chapter 4

In chapter 4, a theme of discrimination is shown. This is shown when Scout, Jem, and Dill are playing "Boo Radley." The kids are reenacting stories they have heard about Boo. One story they reenact is the story where Boo stabs Mr. Radley. This shows discrimination because the kids are reenacting a story that makes Boo look like a monster even though they don't know if the story is true. This is shown on page 45 when Atticus says "Does this by any chance have anything to do with the Radley's?… I hope it doesn't.(Lee 45)". This shows that Atticus thinks that the kids reenacting Boo is bad and he makes them stop playing because it is discriminatory.
"To Kill A Mockingbird" Chapter 4

One form of external conflict is that Dill, Jem, and Scout are beginning to grow tired of their usual games and reenactments so they move to more dangerous pastimes. Their boredom is shown through the quote, "He was clearly tired of being our character man...'I'm tired of those' I said...'Im tired of makin' 'em up,'" (Lee, 48). This shows that they grow tired of their usual antics, and immediately after they say this Scout is rolled down the street in a tire. The three then start to make a play on the rumors about the Radleys.
Thought Provoking Question
Why do you believe that Scout, Dill, and Jem are so intrigued by the unknown entity that is Boo Radley?
The chapter begins when Scout finds chewing gum in a tree by the Radley's house. Next, Jem returns and tells Scout to spit the gum out. Then, the siblings find two pennies in the tree. Afterward, Dill comes back and the three children decide to enact the rumors of the Radley's. Last, Atticus catches them and tells them to stop, but they continue behind his back.
