The setting of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is the small, quiet town of Maycomb. In Maycomb everyone either knows everyone or they’re related. A lot of events happened in this week’s section, but one that I think is important is Aunt Alexandra coming to live with the Finches. This is important because Atticus and Aunt Alexandra are hoping that the feminine influence on Scout will make her act more like the lady they want her to be. Another important event is when Scout talks to Mr. Cunningham about entailments in front of the jail late at night. As she talks to him, all the anger he had went away and he had the mob leave. This event shows how Scout often says things that she doesn’t fully understand making her ignorant, and that its Scout’s ignorance and innocence that makes people want to protect her. In real life children often do and say things that they don’t understand the meaning of, which makes people think they’re cute because of the fact they are trying to act smart.
