This is why Atticus is always repeating questions; he first asks the question, then asks again to see if they change their mind, and asks a third time to clarify their final answer. Atticus has a way of keeping his cool and analyzing people just like Scout, so he has a good chance of beating out their trickery and showing who is truly guilty.
Interpreting/Asking a Question
1. “Reverend Sykes used his pulpit more freely to express his views on individual lapses from grace…” (Lee 162)
2. “’You’ve got everything to lose from this, Atticus. I mean everything.’” (Lee 195)
3. “’What did your father see in the window, the crime of rape or the best defense to it? Why don’t you tell the truth, child, didn’t Bob Ewell beat you up?’ When Atticus turned away from Mayella he looked like his stomach hurt, but Mayella’s face was a mixture of terror and fury.” (Lee 251) Interpreting/Asking a Question
1. Why did Reverend Sykes express more of his personal opinions compared to Jem and Scout’s church? In this passage Reverend Sykes clearly expresses his opinions and views on the actions of others in his community. Scout says that she and Jem had heard the same sermon they usually do on Sundays, “with one exception” being that at their church the pastor or reverend does not express his thoughts on others as freely as Reverend Sykes did. This symbolizes that most people in the black community are not afraid to speak their opinions or the truth; it doesn’t matter to who or what. Reverend Sykes is expressing his opinions on “individual lapses from grace”, meaning that he is saying his views on people who had not been fulfilling there moral duties. He speaks of small events such as how “Jim Hardy had been absent from church for five Sundays and he wasn’t sick”. But it is significant because he does not say one thing about Tom Robinson, reinforcing the idea that he was not guilty. If Tom had actually raped Mayella, I can presume that Reverend Sykes would express his disdain every Sunday for a long time. So while Jem and Scout’s church does not express their scorn for the actions of others, coming to Calpurnia’s church to hear that Reverend Sykes had nothing to say about Tom Robinson gives them a small hint that he is not guilty.
2. Why would Atticus lose everything from this trial? Most of the people of Maycomb have been taunting Atticus for a while, but none had really told him that he would lose everything. Of course no whites had ever defended a black man, nor one that is almost positively guilty. Being that most people didn’t believe in what Atticus was doing, they also didn’t believe that he had even the smallest chance of winning. But while no one seems to have any hope in him except for his kids, Atticus has the ability to reply to Mr. Deas with “’Do you really think so?’” He’s using his questioning skills from being a lawyer to make his peers really think about the trial. They are all convinced that he will lose due to rumors and no real evidence, just going...
