Chapter 16

In this chapter of To Kill A Mocking Bird we build up to the trial of Tom Robinson. Harper lee is bring us closer to the main event in the book and there are many different things going on.

“Four Negors rose and gave us their front-row seats”
I am assuming that the black people are giving up their seats because they have to. This then tells us a very helpful thing to note about the people of Charming. The people that take the seats are Jem, Scout, Dill and the Revrand. These are all people we would assume would think twice about just going along with the segregation. It shows that racism is very deeply inbeded with the culture.

“Judge Taylor looked like most judges I had ever seen.” This is thought bye Scout about the judge who is incharg of the Tom Robbinson case. This is a brilliant way for the reader to get an immediate understanding of what judge Taylor looks like. It also shows that Scout is use to seeing judges leading us to believe she has been here before.

Chapter 15: How is tension created

In this chapter of To Kill A Mocking Bird, their is a scene where Atticus is confronted bye a small group of men intent on harming Tom Robinson. Scout unintentionally stops the men attacking Atticus. Throughout this scene we are left not knowing what is going to happen. Harper Lee is able to make the reader feel concern for the well-being of all the characters involved.

“H-ey, Atticus”. This quote is simple but gives us one very important detail, that Scout know longer feels safe. Before she says this she is glad to see Atticus and runs to him, but once she sees the reaction of Atticus and the other men, it begins to dawn on Scout that this is not a safe place. This is shown very clearly in the use of a hyphen. Scout is questioning Atticus, Scout has lost her pervious confidence.

“He put the news paper down very carefully” This quote shows that Atticus is doing trying to do one of two things. Firstly he could be simply stalling. Bye taking longer he can think of ways to deal with this situation showing us that Atticus is nervous. The other possibility is that Atticus is trying to intimidate the group bye seaming to not notice the danger. This also shows us that this is a dangerous situation and winning may well keep Atticus alive.

“It’s owner was a shadow”. This is possible the best quote. It is really able to paint a picture of a faceless crowd. Making us understand how scary this scene is. The fact the crowd is a shadow seams to make the crowd out to be inhuman, with no gilt, compassion or understanding making the task of keeping them away even harder and creates even more tension.

Chapter 12.

Calpourneiaa is shown as a very damaged person.
She is shown to lead a double life. This leads us to think that she is actualy very lonely. She can’t be a member of the Finch family and is excluded from the black community. She is neither here nor there. Neither a Finch or a solid member if the community.

“It was only then I realised she lead a double life”

This is the quote that shows us all of this.

Chapter 11

I believe there is cordage coming from a Scout. She dose not have to go to visit the old laddy yet she dose anyway.
This shows us that she has a strong love for he brother. She will stand bye her brother even tho it’s hard.

“She scared me” this tells us that is wasn’t easy. It took courage from Scout.

“She’s so nasty. She has fits and spits a lot”
