Questions from the novel To Kill a Mockingbird (Chapter 25)

  1. How does Maycomb react to the news of Tom’s death?
  2. What is your observation of the concept of Tom’s death being “typical”?
  3. Explain the contrast Scout draws between the open, legal court where Tom was tried and “the secret courts of men’s hearts.” In what way are hearts like courts?
  4. Why do you think Jem does not want Scout to tell Atticus about Bob Ewell’s comment? Was this a wise thing to ask her to do?
