BADADING BADABOOM!!!!!!!!!!! We caught Mr. Ewell in a trap that Atticus set it for him. This can foreshadow that Mr. Ewell might have abuse her daughter, because the evidence shows that Mayella was mostly hit in her right side of her face, which means the abuser was left-handed and proves how it could be her own father. Ewwwwwwww that disgust me because it is inappriote for a father to abuse his own daughter. Does any father feels embarrassed when abusing his own daughter? If I was a father, I wouldn’t do that to my own daughter because wh have rules in our community that needs to be follow. But knowing the Ewells, rules are their cup of tea. Overall, This shows how a female voice is in the shadows in their society, because no seeks for …show more content…
This is getting tense from the moment when the court begins. I read the three testimonies that accuse Tom Robinson for raping Mayella. As a bookworm, I don’t believe that liar because the way the author describes her reaction when she is being question. For example, this quote shows how Mayella didn’t answer for three times which shows she is lying and hiding something that can make Tom Robinson not guilty. In Mayella’s point of view towards the case, she says how Tom Robinson (whose left hand is shorter) raped her. As a lawyer, they need to figure out how a testimony is lying. Two ways will be inappropriate emotions and inconsistencies. Inappropriate emotions are how they dramatically feels angry, sadness, or fear. Mayella cries in most of her testimony which means she is hiding something and wants to buy time to think of a lie. Inconsistence means it contradicts what they say. For example, Mayella says Tom raped her with all his force, but Tom is crippled with one hand shorter. And this brought questioned because how a crippled man would raped her and had the force as any men will? Dun Dun Duuuuuun Tom Robinson was injured and Mayella felt into Atticus’s trap, which any lawyer will do. Towards this, Atticus is like a secret ninja and you don’t know when he is going to attack. This is what I like about Atticus because he is very intelligent to make people be stuck in their own trap. Her point of view towards this case was the same point of …show more content…
The three testimonies shows how Tom is the villain of the case, but how can we trust the Ewell’s if they can’t be trusted. As the previous plot says, the Ewell’s were misbehave, dirty, and rude. Who to trust, our race or justice? Even though the Ewell’s are white they are not to be trusted, but we can see that race is important than justice. In addition to, Tom is like a mocking bird. In the previous chapter, it says that it is a sin to kill a mockingbird. Mockingbirds are innocence because they bring joy not disaster. It relates to Tom because he is just a helpful kind black man. In his testimony, he says he was just helping around Mayella and not intending to abuse her. We could tell he is innocence because he is just a helpful man in Maycomb. He intends no harm to no one because he brings help in helpful and not cruel in

During the Great Depression, people had to do anything to get what they needed. One specific case, called The Scottsboro Boys Trial, follows the case of a group of 9 black boys who encounter trouble when they jump into a moving train car containing food and a group of white people. The white people were hoarding all of the food so they and the black people got into a fight. After losing the fight and getting kicked off the train, the white group of people (who had 2 girls dressed as males) falsely accused the black people of rape and the jury found them guilty, even though there was no medical evidence. Harper Lee bases the characters and their situations in her book To Kill a Mockingbird off of her real life, since her father was the defense

Importance of Details Kathreen Perez 1)Interesting Traxler, 3 Chapter 20 detail: -The whole county thinks that Mr. Raymond drinks whiskey, but he is actually drinking coca-cola in a bag. During the 1930's, racism raged through every corner of the United States, and the imaginary district of Maycomb County displayed the effects of injustice brought upon the African-American community during that time period.
During the trial of Tom Robinson, Atticus is the defending lawyer. He tries to turn the jury towards Bob Ewell the father of the rape victim. Atticus shows the jury that Mr. Ewell could have easily beat his daughter. The main idea that Atticus uses is that Tom Robinson didn’t hurt Mayella Ewell it was Bob Ewell. Although, at the end of the trial, Tom is found guilty and Bob Ewell grows a personal vendetta against Atticus.
Throughout the book we see her innocence, but also her loss of innocence, which is a big quality of a mockingbird. Her innocence is shown when the lynching mob goes to kill Tom, she appeals emotionally to Walter
It would make sense for Atticus to defend someone who hasn't done anything
Everybody wants power. People with no power want to obtain it, and people with a lot of power want to keep it. In Harper Lees book To Kill A Mockingbird power means to consider the amount of control a person has over his or hers own life as well as the lives of others. The novel is set in a fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama in the 1930’s. This novel is mainly focused on the rape trail, between, Tom Robinson, a black man, and Mayella Ewell, a white woman.
Evil: I think that Bob Ewell's should be in this column. On pages 227-234 is where Atticus is asking Bob questions about what happened the night of Mayella’s “rape”. During this whole court case Bob was joking in the beginning about Mayella and it was clear that he doesn’t care much for Mayella. He also uses very inappropriate language in the courtroom. On page 230 Bob says “I got to the fence I heard Mayella screaming like a stuck hog inside the house.”
“It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare,” said Mark Twain. The novel To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming of age story about two young children, Jem and Scout Finch, growing up in Alabama in the 1930s and learning what real courage is through their father, Atticus, and the people of Maycomb. They learn to see the world from other points of view, which is also how they express empathy towards others, persevering and standing up for what you believe in, and putting yourself in danger to help others. One message that Harper Lee provides us with is that courage is when you persevere to do something even when it gets more difficult.
In Mayella trial it had become evident that Mayella was sexually, verbally, and physically abused by her father. During the trial he tried to intimidate her by leaning forward while she was going to tell the truth to Atticus about her father and how he treats her. (DOC B) “Do you love your father Miss Mayella? “He does Tollable, ‘Cept when-“the reason why Mayella stop was when she saw him lean closer in his chair in an attempt to threatened into lying. (DOC B) “Except when” “Except when nothing” said Mayella “I said he does tollable” When Mayella had said this she had sat back again.
Atticus explains how yet he feels bad for Mayella and believes she is a victim of abuse; he still can't pity
“A man’s skin color has no more significance as his eye color” (Haile Selassie I). Every town has a disease, whether it 's racism, poverty or crime. In “To Kill A Mockingbird” their disease is racism. Racism consumes and blinds the people of Maycomb. In Harper Lee 's novel “To Kill A Mockingbird”, the readers follow Scout Finch, a nine year old girl that has not been infected by the disease but is heavily influenced.
No medical evidence was ever collected or shown to prove that the crime ever took place. On the night after the assault, Mayella Ewell was never seen be a doctor. She was never examined to prove that Tom Robinson did anything to her. Mayella stated that she was beaten that night, so she should have gone to the doctor to get checked out. There is no proof of any crime, so there should not have been a guilty verdict.
