What is your opinion of Bob Ewell? Compare him to any other character you've seen in a book or movie. Try, as Atticus suggests elsewhere, to walk in Bob Ewell's shoes.

Bob Ewell is a drunk, and he beats his daughter. That, I think, says it all. I'll give him the fact that he has a family and little money; I feel for his poverty, but nowhere in the novel do wee ever read that he has ever tried to improve the life of his family or even himself. If I had to walk in his shoes, I hope I'd do it a bit better, but then again, I've never been in his shoes.
