where do you find humour and satire in the book.
"After my bout with Cecil Jacobs when I committed myself to a policy of cowardice, word got around that Scout Finch wouldn't fight any more, her daddy wouldn't let her. This was not entirely correct: I wouldn't fight publicly for Atticus, but the family was private ground. I would fight anyone from a third cousin upwards tooth and nail."
As well, Scouts first day at school is a satirical look at Maycomb society and the greater education system. The teacher is from a bigger town. She begins a story about cats talking and acting like humans. The kids laugh. They are farm kids and know very well the reality of animals.
To kill a mockingbird deals with some serious themes but Scout's narration is filled with clever, sometimes satirical text.
