who are mocking birds and why
And this is a subject of gossip about Dill: Francis tells Scout that "Grandma says he hasn't got a home...." Alexandra has been gossiping about this poor boy.
-did not rape Mayella, but he was still convicted because he was a black.
-a white man's word is stronger than a black's.
-used as a scapegoat for Bob Ewell doings on Mayella (ie the bruises)
-treated with hostility in court although he was polite (because he is a black)
During the trail, this two kids have witness so much injustice from the society. They become to understand the negative side so that they are not so-called "innocent" at all.
Helen is a mockingbird "shot at" by Bob Ewell when he follows her to work. I LOVE the scene in which Link Deas chases Bob off by saying he'll need fresh paint for his fence and he'll get Bob on the Ladis' Law.
Mrs. Dubose is a mockingbird "shot at" by the children who spread rumors that she keeps a Confederate pistol under her shawl.
Mr. Link Deas sort of makes himself into a mockingbird (or avoids it--??) by pretending to be drunk. People could never tolerate his choosing to marry a Negro woman, so he gives them a "reason." Contrast this with Atticus, who chooses to defend a Negro man without offering any "excuse." Atticus then becomes a mockingbird, "shot at" by community members who gossip about him, Mayella who is so awful on the stand, and Bob who attacks his children.
