To Eliminate a Mockingbird Atticus Finch Monologue (Fictional)
Atticus sitting down, Alexandra sitting to his left. Well sister, I presume you heard of Tom’s death. We told Helen earlier, and it was terrible Alexandra, she just … collapsed, I can only picture what that bad lady is going through, not to discuss the children. What if that was me Alexandra, what if? For one, Scout and Jem would not be tucked up inside … safely distanced from the intolerance and cruelties of this society. (Time out) Atticus stands up.
By the method Alexandra, I require to thank you for your help with the kids. After all, they’re the next generation of Finch’s, and who better to teach them the customs of this family than yourself. Scout is young and impressionable and she does not comprehend why a lot of things happen, why Negroes are oppressed, why she would be teased for being smart. While Jem on the other hand is growing in maturity and cares a lot for Scout, although he might not show t. yet he finds it tough to accept many things; that Tom Robinson was convicted, that Boo Radley is reclusive by choice. I have actually constantly attempted to instil strong ethical worths and propriety in Scout and Jem, however I can just teach them so much … eventually they will grow tired of listening to me and look towards somebody else for guidance, somebody like you. It’s tough to discuss to them that prejudice exists … that the majority of folk think just of themselves and I simply hope the previous few weeks have been a duration of finding out for both of them.
Something still troubles me Alexandra, this town may be starting to forget Tom’s trial, however I am definitely not. You know I attempt never to complain, but what occurred in that courtroom simply … simply doesn’t appear right to me. Tom was more than a good male … he was a gentleman, and while we might never discover why he ran, we most definitely do know why he was founded guilty, regardless of his utter innocence. Now I understand we don’t agree about everything … however definitely you should be irritated in some method about what took place to
Tom and his family. I do not understand what you believe in, but one thing you must … is justice, and I can tell you now, sibling … what was seen in that courtroom was nothing from another location near to justice … And yes, I realise Tom didn’t have an entirely perfect criminal record, however when has anyone ever thought a word from the mouth of a Ewell? It remains in the past now however, what’s done is done, however I simply hope that someone who experienced that trial decided to take a walk in Tom’s shoes … and understood how wrong all of us were.
