To Kill A Mockingbird
Transcript of To Kill A Mockingbird
Getting To Know Arthur Radley
Scouts point of view of Boo Radley was "Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch,that's why his hands were bloodstained-if you ate an animal raw,you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most the time."
Jem and Scout have a very close relationship considering they're brother and sister. Throughout the book they go through many conflicts and not only with each other, but with other events as well. Their whole childhood in the book is basically leading up to a climax from when the book starts to the time they start to mature. They went on so many adventures and each and everyone one of them seemed to get more complex and dangerous by the second. The setting and mood of their surrounding only making it even more climatic.

" Jem's head at times was transparent: he had thought that to make me understand he wasn't afraid of Radleys in any shape or form to contrast his own fearless heroism with my cowardice."
symbolism: "Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”
"Scout I think I'm beginning to understand something. I think I'm beginning to understand why Boo Radley's stayed shut up in that house all this time... it's because he wants to stay inside."

Jean Louise Finch ( Scout ) is the narrator of the book
To Kill a Mockingbird.
She and her brother, Jeremy Finch ( Jem ), learn alot during their time in the book. They learn to not judge, that life is not always fair, and no matter how cold a person may seem, there is always goodness in their heart. The children and their father have endured hardships as well.
As in the school children, who made fun of Scout about her father defending a negro.
And Jem, who destroyed Mrs. Dubose's yard because of something she said.
And Atticus, who tried so hard to defend Tom Robinson, but his efforts did not pay off because Tom was a colored man in a white court.
Boo, who risked his life to save these children be barely knows but still tries out of the goodness of his heart.
People thought of Boo as a dangerous man. Miss Stephanie Crawford claimed to have seen him watching her through her window at night. And most belive that he stabbed his father in the leg with scissors and bit off his mothers finger.
When scout meets Boo Radley she finds out that he's actually a nice caring man. One of the most important things that she learns about Boo is that he looked after her and Jem like they were his own kids. He also helped them when Mr.Ewell tried to attack them. One last thing is that he left them gifts or some of his possessions in the tree
Tom Robinson and Boo Radley are the mockingbirds in this story because they have never done anything to harm another person. Tom Robinson only helped those around him, as in Mayella Ewell. Boo helped out Jem and Scout as if they were his own kids. He gave them some of his possesions and would even kill for their safety.
Before sundown, Mr. Bob Ewell was coming in from the woods, when he got to the fence he heard Mayella screaming. He ran up to the window and saw Tom raping Mayella. The room looked like there had been a fight there. As soon as he saw Tom, he ran inside. After Tom had fled, Mr. Ewell went to Mayella. Soon after, he ran straight to Mr. Tate. He also stated that he has asked the county for fifteen years to clean the nest of Negroes and he said that they are dangerous to live around.
On November 21st, Mayella was sitting on the front porch. She was supposed to chop up an old chiffarobe. She wasn't feeling very strong so she asked Tom to do it for her. She said she would pay him a nickle. When she went in the house to get a nickle for him, she turned around and he was on her. He grabbed her around her neck and hit her repeatedly. While he was doing this, she kicked and screamed as loud as she could. The next thing that she remembered was Mr. Ewell standing over her saying "who done it? who done it." Then she fainted. She said that Tom was well known to her but she never asked him inside the fence before. She wasn't sure whether or not he beat her face.
On November 21st, he passed Mayella on the porch like she said he was. She asked him to come inside to fix the door hinges because fall was coming. He pulled the door back and forth and saw that nothing was wrong with it. Then, she shut the door in his face. He asked, "where are the children?" She said that they went to town to buy ice cream. After that, he said "It was nice of you to save up money to treat them." She asked him to step up on a chair, and get a box off of the top of the chiffarobe. When he got up on top of the chair Mayella grabbed him around the legs. He was so scared that he jumped off of the chair and it tipped over. That was the only toppled over piece of furniture in the room. When he turned around, she jumped on him and hugged him around the waist. Then, she kissed him on the side of the face and she told him to kiss her back. She said that she has never been kissed before and her father doesn't count. He tried to run but she blocked the door and when he told her to move, Mr. Ewell shouted through the window "You goddamn whore I'll kill ya." Then Tom ran because he was scared of what might happen because he is black.
On November 21st, Mr. Tate was leaving his office when Mr. Ewell came in and was saying that a Negro raped his daughter. That was when he got in his car and went to Mr. Ewells house. When he got there, she was badly beaten and when Mr Heck Tate asked her who did it, she said it was Tom Robinson. He drove to Tom's house and brought him back and she identified him as the one.
Jem and Scouts Relationship
He didn't call the doctor. He said that there were bruises on her arm, she had a black eye on her her right eye, and she had bruises on her neck
He didn't contact a doctor either. He can read and he is left-handed.
She tries everything she can to avoid answering the questions Atticus asks her. She is nineteen and a half years old. Atticus asked her if she loved her father and if he was easy to get along with. Mayella said yes except, that's when Atticus finished her sentence. He said "except when he's drunk?" She answered yes but she denied that her father has ever beaten her. When She said Tom raped her and Tom stood up, everyone saw that his left arm was twelve inches shorter than his left.
The Girl Who Claims to Have Been Raped
Mr. Link Dias rose and said that he has never had a speck of trouble out of him for the eight years Tom worked for him. Tom was out away for thirty days for 'disorderly conduct'. Mr. Gilmer asks why Tom ran. Tom answers that he was scared.
The Man Accused of Raping Mayella
Prezi Done By:
Tom Robinson is accused of raping a woman named Mayella Ewell. There are four testimonies to this case. Mr. Heck Tate, Mr. Robert Ewell, Mayella Ewell, and Tom Robinson.
One of the most important themes of To Kill a Mockingbird is the book's exploration of the moral nature of human beings. Whether people are essentially good or evil. The book starts off with Scout and Jem's childish perspectives where they assume all people are good because they haven't seen evil, but as they grow older and reach an adult's perspective, in which they have confronted evil and can use it to help with their new understanding of the world around them. During the transition from innocence to experience the book involves the threat that hatred, prejudice, and ignorance pose to the innocent, like Tom Robinson and Boo Radley, who were not ready for the evil they encountered which in result, destroyed them. Not only did the innocence of Tom and Boo affect them, but Jem's crushed him as well. His justice and faith in humanity is badly damaged in the discovery of the evil of racism during and after the Tom Robison trial.
Maycomb is the town where both Jem and Scout grew up. They know almost everyone in town. The whole town is like one big family. First of all, Miss Maudie is Scout and Jem's next door neighbor and is caring and sweet to both of them. Secondly, Miss Stephanie Crawford is someone who knows everyone because she know all the gossip. This is a small town with few people, who all work and know each other and help one another out, and that's what brings them closer together
