Miss. Maudie says that she doesn't want to attend. She says it is "morbid, watching a poor devil on trialfor his life." She thinks the trial has turned into a "Roman carnival."

The details of a rape trial are too sordid for a proper Southern lady to hear. Miss Maudie is doing the decent thing by staying away.
