came from Boo. Dill arrives, and the children invent a new game re- enacting the drama of Boo Radley's life. Scout rolls inside a tyre into the Radley garden. Afterwards, Scout is apprehensive partly because she senses that Atticus disapproves of their game, partly because - unknown to the boys - she heard laughter coming from behind a shutter at the Radley place. Chapter 5 1934 Scout, having been edged out of the boys' games for a while, spends her time with Miss Maudli Atkinson. Miss Maude is their friendliest neighbour, kind and generous to the children. She is critical of the local gossip, Miss Crawford, and of reli- gious bigots like Mr. Radley. She has tremendous sympathy for Boo, whom she feels, has been cruelly treated. The childrens last attemp to communicate with Boo fails when Atticus catches them using a pole to push a note through one of Radley's shutters. He forbids them to forment Boo anymore, and urges them to look at their behaviour from Boo's point of view. 1934 Chapter 6 Despite Atticus' ban, the children try a final attemp to make contact with Boo. They go at night and catch sight of a shadowy figure in the Radley backyard. Before they can discover its identity, the sound of Nathan Radley's gun frightens them off the premises. As they escape, Jem loses his trousers on some barbed wire. It takes all Dill's quick wits to malce up a possible reason for their dis- appearance. he says that he beat Jem at strip-poker. Jem, Rearing Atticus' anger more than Mr. Radley's shotgun, goes back that night to retrieve the trousers. Chapter 7 1934 Jem tells Scout that he found his trousers mended and hanging neatly on the fence. He guesses that Boo was responsible. He also suspects that the gifts in the tree are from Boo. Jem's suspicions are confirmed when Boo's brother Nathan cements up the hole - sadly, befor Jem can write a thank-you note, the knowledge that Nathan wants to prevent any friendship between Boo and the children reduces Jem to tears. Scout hasn't understood where the presents have come from or the significance of the cement, yet the narrator (older Scout) is able to convey Jem's understanding to us at the same time that she illustrates Scout's ignorance. Chapter 8 1934 Mrs. Radley dies. The children see snow for the first time. The winter is the coldest since 1885. The children are building a snowman which is a caricature of Mr. Avery. But Atticus makes them change it's shape so as not to offend Mr. Avery. While the children watch the fire which burns down Miss Maudie's home, someone puts a blanket around Scout's shoulders. It is later realised that it must have been Boo Radley. Chapter 9 1934 Atticus knows that defending Tom Robinson will have a deep effect on his family. He already sees this with Scout; he has to persuade her not to let it bother her when people insult him. Unde Jack arrives for Christmas and Jem and scout get air- rifles from Atticus. They all go to Finch's Landing for Christmas Day. Scout manages to control her behaviour until she meets cousin Francis, but he provolces her into a fight with him. She is punished by Uncle Jack - unjustly, she feels, because her side of things hasn't been heard. When the children have gone to bed, Atticus explains to his brother that he is worried that Scout won't be able to cope with the pressure put on the family while he is defending Tom Robinson. During this conversation, Atticus knows that Scout is listening from the hall. Chapter 10 1934 The children explain that they are disappointed with their fathers accomplishments compared to those of their friends! fathers By the end of the chapter, they feel deep pride and admiration for him. Atticus shows courage and skill in shooting the mad dog. In this chapter, Atticus Mentions the mockingbird. He explains that it's wrong to kill something that does no harm, and gives only pleasure with its song. Chapter M 1935 Acting quite out of character, Jem loses his temper with the outspoken, cantankerous old neighbour, Mrs. Pubose. In relalication for the names she calls Atticus, Jem knocks off the heads of her camellias. Atticus is angry at Jem's behaviour. As punishment, Jem has to read to her for a month. Scout goes with him and realises that these reading sessions increase daily length. When Mrs. Dubose dies, Atticus explains the important part Jem and Scout have played in helping. her overcomp her morphine addiction. Chapter 12 1935 Jem is growing up and to Scouts disappointment, is unwilling to play with her anymore. While Atticus is away, Calpurnia falas the children to church. It is a memorable experience for them. They meet hostility from one person, tula, but the Majority are welcoming. Scout attends the service with interest and notices many similarities with their own church. A collection is made in the church for Helen Robinson and her children. Calpurnia tells scout that Tom Robinson is accused raping Mayella Ewell. Also, Aunt Alexandra arrives. of Chapter 13 1935 Aunt Alexandra comes to stay indefinitely because she feels that the children need some feminine influence during their crucial years of growing up. She's obsessed with "good breeding" and fits in well with the neighbours, but not with the children because she demands different standards of behaviour from those they are used to. Atticus is torn between being courteous to his sister and raising Jem and scout as he sees fit. After one attemp to try and impose his sister's standards on the children, he gives up. Chapter 14 1935 Having Aunt Alexandra Uving with the Finch family requires some adjustments, but Atticus has to refuse his sister's request to get rid of Calpurnia. Atticus has high regard for their cook, and his Bister's arrival doesn't change that. Scout dislikes Jem's new maturity, and when he tries to talk to her as though he were an adult she fights him with her fists. Sent to her room as a punishment, Scout is amazed to find Dill hiding under her bed. Jem shows that he has left childhood behind when he decides to tell Atticus of Dill's presence. Atticus is understanding and, after informing Dill's aunt, allows Dill to stay the night. Chapter 15 1935 Dill is allowed to stay. The peace of summer is broken by troubled events. Scout fails to see the significance of these. Firstly Heck Tate, the sherrif, and some of Atticus' friends advise him to give up Tom Robinson; they are worried about the possibility of Tom being lynched. Atticus refuses. A lynch mob from Saraum, bent On killing Tom. arrives at the jail.- Why Atticus is guarding. Unknown to Atticus, the children have also made their way to jail because Jem is worried about Atticu's safety. Unwittingly, Scout diffuses the explosive Situation by chatting innocently to Mr. Cunningham, one of the mob. The men see sense and leave Chapter 16 1935 It's not until they reach home that Scout understands the full danger and potential violence of the evening. Atticus tries to explain how people change when they are part of a molo so that men like Mr. Cunningham, who are usually friendly can become a threat. The next day all the people of Maycomb county attends the trial, acting as if they were going to carnival rather than to see a man on trial for his life. Disobeying their father, the children go to the courtroom and find seats amongst the Negroes in their balcony, next to Reverend Sykes. There they can witness the proceedings without being seen by Atticus. Chapter 17 1935 Mr. Tale testifies that on being summoned by Mr Ewell he found Mayella with injuries mainly to the right side of her face. Mr. Tate also verifies that no doctor was called. Her Ewell testifies next, and stirs up the court by the cruce Language of his accusation. He shows the ignorance and stupidity and does not understand the impact of revealing that he is left-handed. Jem understands that a left-handed person would be likely to cause injuries to the right side of the face, rather than the left. Tom Robinson, being crippled in the left arm, would have found it extremely difficult to inflict Mayella's injuries. Chapter 18 1935 The Mayella Ewell testifies. A picture emerges of her impoverished life: Mr Ewell spends relief money on drink, and she and the children have to cut up old tyres for shoes in winter. Her evident loneliness leads us to feel Sympathy for her. Although she won't admit it, it becomes clear that Mayella's father beats her. weakness of her accusation against Tom Robinson is exposed when he reveals his withered arm. Mayella is angry at Allicus because she feels that he has humiliated her infront of everyone and suggested that she is a liar. Mayella says that after doing a job for her, Tom Robinson followed her. into the house and raped her. The way Mayella answeres Atticus! questions suggests she's lying. Mr. BB Underwood spots the children in the courtroom. Chapler 19. 1935 Tom Robinson testifies that he often dic jobs for Mayella. On this particular occasion she asked him into the house and then made advances to him. When Bob Ewell saw Mayella through the window, Tom became frightened and ran away. Scout believes Tom's version of the story. The deep prejudice of the South is apparent: there is outrage when Tom admits to be feeling sorry for Mayella. The "impertinence" of his words stuns Mr. Gilmer, for he feels that no White, however poor, wants or feels they deserve the pity of a Negro. Dill is upset by this attitude and Scout takes him out of the court, where they meet Dolphus Raymond. Chapter 20 1935 Outside the court, Dill and Scout talk to Mr. Raymond. He reveals the secret of his drinking bag, and explai- ns that because he breaks the rules of accepted behaviour it is easier for him- and for other people - if he pretends to be a social oddity. In summing up, Atticus explains why Mayella might have framed Tom Robinson. He pleads with the jury to weigh the evidence without prejudice, and reminds them that in law all people are equal Chapter 21 1935 Calpurnia arrives to say that the children are missing from home. The children's presence in the court is noticed and they are sent home. Atticus relents and allows them back after super to hear the verdict. Jem is optimistic and, after a long time, the jury returns with the result. Tom Robinson is found guilty. Chapter 22 1935 Jem is outraged at the verdict and Atticus doesn't attemp to shield him from his new-found awareness of the in- justice of Maycomb people. next day, the Negroes send gifts to show their appreciation of Atticus, and he is visibly moved. The majority of the neighbours accept the verdict without surprise and feel Atticus coas foolish to defend Tom. Bob Ewell insults Atticus by spitting in his face and threatens future trouble. Chapter 23 1935 Predictably, Attious reacts calmly to Bob Ewell's assault, and dismisses the children's lears for his safety by making them look at the situation from Bob Ewell's pov. But Scout and Jemn are still worried. Aunt Alexandra feels that Atticus is too optimistic about Bob Ewell. Atticus explains to Jem that there can be no fairer system of justice until people's basic prejudices are changed, and that will not happen quickly. Atticus reveals that it was a Cunningham, who caused the jury to take longer in making up its minds. Initially the Cunningham wanted Tom to be acquitted. Chapter 24 1935 Aunt Alexandra holds a missionary tea and the ladies of Maycomb attend. They reveal their hypocrisis as they talk with sympathy about poor Africans but with no sympathy for the Local Negroes. Mrs Merriweather talks about the poverty of the Mrunas and about how she cannot understand the "sulkiness of the darkies". She also cannot under stand why Afficus would want to defend. Scout is puzzled and unimpressed by their insinuations and leading questions - which make her the but of their amusement. She comments that she prefers the openness of men to the company. of Lacies. However, her opinion changes when she sees how Aunt Alexandra conquers her emotions on hearing of Tom's manages to continue normally in company. Atticus relates the events surroundings Tom's death in mather-of- conveys little emotion, the only clue to his feelings is the comment that Tom had seventeen bullet holes in him and that they didn't have to shoot him that much. death and fact which Chapter 25 1935 · Jem and Dill go with Afficus to break the news of Tom's death to Tom's wife, Helen. • Dill likens her reaction to being trodden on by a giant. This echoes the scene at the beginning of the chapter when Jem admonishes Scout for treading on an insect. • Tom's death is accepted in Maycomb without surprise. The people remain unmoved by a highly critical editorial in the Local paper in which BB Underwood is bitter about the needless killing Tom. Scout awakens to the prejudice of Maycomb people and realises that Tom's case was lost "the moment Mayella screamed". chapter 26 1935 Scout is growing up. She no longer fears the Radley place and realises what a nuisance they must have been to Воо Radley. She is puzzled by the attitude of her teacher, Miss hates, who condemns Hitler's persecution of the Jews, but sees nothing wrong in Maycomb society's treatment of Negroes. Miss hates feels that Tom's conviction will teach the blacks a lesson. Jem doesn't wanna be reminded of the frial as he has not yet come to terms with his disillousionment about people.. Chapter 27 1935 life begins to settle down after the trial and only three things of interest happen. Bob Ewell finds a job, but is Sacked within a few days. He believes Atticus fixed it in some way. Judge Taylor meets an intruder in his house. Tom Robinson's wife Helen is harassed on the way to work by Bob Ewell, until link Deas makes him stop. Aunt Alexandra Senses that Bob Ewelle hasn't yet finally got his revenge and she fears for the safety of their family. Atticus isn't that pessimistic. Jem and Scout prepare themselves for the Halloween pageant at school, an event which they attend, unes corted, at night. chapter 28 1935 The darkness and eeriness of the journey across the school yard is stressed. Cecil Jacobs gives them both a fright by. jumping out on them. Scout is so when she misses her cue that she wants to wait until the audience has left before she and Jem set off home. On the way home they are attacked by Bob Ewell, who is trying to kill them. Jem is badly hurt. Scout is aware of the presence of a 4th person, who saves them and takes Jem home. When they arrived Atticus Summonds the doctor, who announces that Jem has a broken elbow. Scout is incurious about the stranger on the porch and doesn't connect him with the fight. The Sheriff, Heck Tate, arrive with the news that Bob Ewell has been found dead. Chapter 29 1935 Scout tells Heck Take what happened during the attack. Atticus' misjudgement of Bob Ewell would go to these lenghts for revenge. While relating the events it suddenly Lawns on Scout that the person who was also present at the fight and who saved them was Boo Radley. 1935 Chapter 30 Atticus mistakenly believes that Hedd Tate is protecting Jem by insisting that Bob Ewell fell on his lcnife. In fact, Heck is trying to shield Boo Radley. Heck argues that it'd be wrong to subject Mr. Radley to publicity, and Atticus finally understands the sherrif's reasoning. Scout lilcens Boo to a Mockingbird. chapter 31 1935 At Boo's request, Scout escorts him to see the sleeping Jem and then home. While thinking of Boo, she is reminded of their childish selfishness. They receive gifts from him but gave nothing in reteurn. In recalling the events of the past two years she is aware of her greater maturity and of how far she's been able to "stand in other's shoes".
