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.
