To Kill a Mockingbird- Chapter 11
By Helena Liao and Annie Chen
Period 6
"Thought you could kill my Snow-on-the-Mountain, did you? Well, Jessie says the top's growing back out. Next time you'll know how to do it right, won't you? You'll pull it up by the roots, won't you?"
- Ms. Henry Lafayette Dubose
This quote represents...
"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through not matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do."
-Atticus Finch
"They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions, but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.
- Atticus Finch
"And you--what are you doing in those overalls? You should be in a dress and camisole, young lady! You'll grow up waiting on tables if somebody doesn't change your ways--a Finch waiting on tables at the O.K. Cafe--hah!
-Ms. Dubose

Theme- Courage/ Bravery
This quote (pg. 149) relates to courage and bravery, because Atticus is explaining to Jem what he believes is bravery (a motif throughout the story) ; "... not a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through not matter what."

This also characterizes Atticus as a gentleman, civilized and courteous, who is knowledgable and does not appreciate violence.

Theme: Racism
This quote (pg. 146) relates to racism because Ms. Dubose's Snow-on-the-Mountain camellias are just like the racism of the town's white people; it may be temporarily quelled (or cut short), but it is guaranteed to return unless the very roots of the town's condescendng discrimination are removed.

Ms. Dubose, by challenging Jem to pull up her camellias "the right way" also signifies her challenging him to rid the town of racism, knowing fully well that he single-handedly can't change the tenacity and the prejudice of the southern way of life.

Theme- Conscience
This quote (pg. 140) represents conscience and moral courage because Atticus is reasoning that he must take the Tom Robinson case, otherwise he is going against his conscience and his beliefs.
This characterizes Atticus as a man with integrity and bravery because he is able to tolerate and is willing to suffer the wrath of the society around him, to defend what he believes is right
This quote also depicts Atticus as accepting and tolerating towards other people's opinions and views, regardless of their differences.

This quote represents...
This quote (pg. 135) illustrates these themes because Ms. Dubose believes that Scout needs to learn "proper" manners and how to dress in a ladylike fashion to fit into the white community. (Southern way of life)
As a white girl in the 1900's, she was expected to wear dresses, socialize with other girls in her class, and later to maintain the household. Girls, in this time, were not allowed to get higher-ranked, educated jobs, and most didn't even complete primary education.
Theme: Southern Way of Life/Gender Inequality
This girl is looking over the fence, almost as if she is looking over a symbolic border of discrimination, constantly pondering over whether or not she should cross the line.
It is ironic, also that no matter how impractical dresses got in the Great Depression, people (such as the girls in this photo) wore them. Was it their sense of culture, or was it just n old habit, something that everyone did that makes no sense to the mind of the present?
In this picture, the farm is still inhabited, despite the farms surrounding it already being abandoned, the owners of those properties leaving and seeking new homes. Like Atticus said, bravery is persevering through something even if you know that there is a slim chance that you will win, because it is what you believe in. These people will fight through the droughts and harsh weather because the land is their home and they believe things will get better.
how does this relate?
In this picture, only the white kids have melons, as one of them looks upon the colored children with distaste. By simply taking the melons and handing them over to the other children may superficially solve the problem, however, it will only cure the symptoms. Next time, if the same situation reoccurs, the children will still be divided by prejudice, a gaping crevice from which the white kids look down upon the blacks.
The End-Thanks for watching!
