Transcript of Copy of To Kill a Mockingbird Character Chart
Period 1B Jem Sister Dill Boo Radley Dolphus Raymond Bob Ewell Tom Robinson Mayella Ewell Link Deas Calpurnia Maid/ Motherly Figure Father Lawyer Good Friends Friends Unfriendly Neighbors Rivals Friends Quote: (p 30) "If you just learn a single trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."
Response: This quote shows the relationship between Atticus and Scout. It demonstrates a father caring for and sharing his wisdom with his daughter. Atticus is the most influential character for Scout. She is taught most of her life lessons through him and changes her perspective on life because of him. Quote: (p. 52) "Scout, I'm tellin' you for the last time, shut your trap or go home – I declare to the Lord you're gettin' more like a girl every day!" With that, I had no option but to join them"
Response: This describes Scouts relationship with Jem. Although they fight, Scout looks up to her brother and will do anything to please him. Jem plays a key role in the book. He and Scout are two very curious children and they act upon their curiosities. They grow up and mature off of one another and help each other understand concepts that they wouldn't have alone. Quote: (p 228) "Dill would be leaving for Meridian tomorrow; today he was off with Jem at Baker's Eddy. Jem had discovered with angry amazement that nobody had ever bothered to teach Dill how to swim, a skill Jem considered necessary as walking. They spent two afternoons at the creek...."
Response: This illustrates Jem's relationship to Dill. They are very good friends. Almost like brothers. It is clear that Jem cares about Dill. He cares enough to teach Dill how to swim, on the last days that Dill has in Maycomb. Quote: (p 201) "Because you are children and you can understand it....Let him get a little older and he wont get sick and cry"
Respond: Although Dolphus is comforting Dill for crying at the courthouse, he also plays a major role into the moral of the story. He allows us to see that even a child can see the injustice and racism that is going on at the courthouse. He understands why Dill is crying and tries to educate him as to why. Quote: (p 24-25) "Hush your mouth! Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house's yo' comp'ny and don't you let me catch you remarkin' on thier ways like you was so high and mighty! Yo' folks might be better'n the Cunninghams but it don't count for nothin' the way you're disgracin' 'em.."
Response: Calpurnia plays a motherly role in Scout's life. This quote shows Calpurnia teaching Scout a lesson after her disorderly conduct while a guest was at the house. Calpurnia tries to teach Scout to be a lady many times through out the book. Quote: (p 270-271) "Hey boo," I said. " Mr.Arthur, honey," said Atticus, gently correcting me. "Jean Louise, this is Mr. Arthur Radley. I believe he already knows you."
Response: This summarizes Arthur Radley and Scout's relationship. Although Arthur Radley and Scout have never formally met, it is like they have already known each other, before the situation with Bob Ewell. In previous chapters, Scout and Jem receive anonymous gifts from him. He also put a blanket around Scout during the fire of Miss Maudie's house and Jem's shorts were perfectly folded when he had got them stuck on the fence. He helps the kids through out the book without even knowing them and even saves them at the end. Quote: (p 218) "The man had to have some kind of comeback, his kind always does. So if spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that’s something I’ll gladly take. He had to take it out on somebody and I’d rather it be me than that household full of children out there.”
Response: This shows the relationship between Atticus and Bob Ewell. Bob Ewell is very immature and Atticus's response was very calm and mature. Which would make Bob even more angry. Mr. Ewell and Atticus are rivals in court but I would not say that Mr. Ewell is Atticus's enemy, rather that Atticus is Mr. Ewells enemy. Atticus is to mature and wise to have enemies. Quote: (p 194) "She says she never kissed a grown man before an' she might as well kiss a nigger, she says what her papa do don't count.."
Response: This shows the sad and horrific relationship between Bob and Mayella Ewell. Their family is quiet poor and Bob is a single parent. He beats and most likely rapes Mayella, the eldest of all the children. This quote describes how terrible Bob Ewell is and how Mayella is just the victim of it all. Quote: (p 249) "First thing you can do, Ewell, is get your stinkin' carcass off my property... second thing you can do is stay away form my cook..."
Response: This describes the relationship between Link Deas and Bob Ewell after the court case and after Tom was killed. Link and Bob were just neighbors until the courthouse events took place. After the death of Tom Robinson, Link wanted nothing to do with Bob Ewell. Quote: (p 75) "I'm simply defending a Negro....For a number of reasons. The main one is, if I didn't, I couldn't hold up my head in town, I couldn't represent this county in the legislature, I couldn't even tell you or Jem not to do something again."
Response: This demonstrates the relationship between Atticus and Tom Robinson. Atticus is defending Tom not only to do his job but to bring fairness to the Judicial System and Tom Robinson. In that time their were not equal rights, not even in the fair places. Even so, Atticus did it to have respect for himself and be respected by others.
