2)Explain the "lawyer's trick" Atticus uses to get Jem to confess to the backyard Boo-dramas. [page 49]
3)Explain Miss Maudie's statement:". . . sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whiskey bottle in the hand of--oh, your father," Can you imagine an instance(or think of an instance in your experience) when this might be true? Describe it.
4)What do you know about Dill that might explain why he wants Boo to come out and "sit a spell with us" in order to "feel better" ? Why, too, is it understandable that Dill lies so often and so well?
