(Rising Action)

Tom’s Trial chapters 15-25 denouement

chapters 29-31

Boo Radley

chapters 1-8 Both plots mixed

(exposition) chapters 9-14

Two separate plots that merge in climax. The Boo Radley plot seems related to Scout and Jem’s childhood. The Tom Robinson plot seems to contain the conflict (Rising Action). Both Boo and Tom connect symbolically to the theme of the mockingbird. After the two plots join, Scout has a more mature view of life.

point of view
Point of View

First person- Scout Finch, 8 year old girl. Though grown up, she still is limited to what she saw and heard as a child. Sometimes, since she is young, and rather naïve, she can’t give us a full understanding of events. For example:

1. Not understand danger of walking into a lynch mob.

2. Not know not to ask why Dill has no father.

3. Not know “rape”

4. Can’t tell Mrs. Dubose is an addict.
