To kill a mockingbird test review

Arthur “Boo” Radley A recluse who never sets foot outside his house, he dominates the imaginations of Jem, Scout, and Dill.
Link Deas Tom Robinson’s employer. In his willingness to look past race and praise the integrity of Tom’s character, he epitomizes the opposite of prejudice.
Calpurnia The Finches’ black cook. A stern disciplinarian and the children’s bridge between the white world and her own black community.
Tom Robinson The black field hand accused of rape. He is one of the novel’s “mockingbirds,” an important symbol of innocence destroyed by evil.
Jeremy Atticus “Jem” Finch Scout’s brother and constant playmate at the beginning of the story.
Bob Ewell A drunken, mostly unemployed member of Maycomb’s poorest family. In his knowingly wrongful accusation that Tom Robinson raped his daughter, he represents the dark side of the South: ignorance, poverty, squalor, and hate-filled racial prejudice.
Mrs. Henry Lafayette Dubose An elderly, ill-tempered, racist woman who lives near the Finches. Although Jem believes that she is a thoroughly bad woman, Atticus admires her for the courage with which she battles her morphine addiction.
Jean Louise “Scout” Finch The narrator and protagonist of the story.
Charles Baker “Dill” Harris Jem and Scout’s summer neighbor and friend.
Miss Maudie Atkinson The Finches’ neighbor, a sharp-tongued widow, and an old friend of the family.
Atticus Finch Scout and Jem’s father, a lawyer in Maycomb descended from an old local family.
Aunt Alexandra Atticus’s sister, a strong-willed woman with a fierce devotion to her family. Her commitment to propriety and tradition often leads her to clash with Scout.
Mayella Bob Ewell’s abused, lonely, unhappy daughter.
Mr. Walter Cunningham A poor farmer and part of the mob that seeks to lynch Tom Robinson at the jail. He displays his human goodness when Scout’s politeness compels him to disperse the men at the jail.
Mr. Dolphu Raymond A wealthy white man who lives with his black mistress and mulatto children. He pretends to be a drunk so that the citizens of Maycomb will have an explanation for his behavior. In reality, he is simply jaded by the hypocrisy of white society and prefers living among blacks.
Nathan Radley Boo’s older brother. He plugs up the knothole in which Boo leaves presents for the children.
Heck Tate The sheriff of Maycomb and a major witness at Tom Robinson’s trial. He is a decent man who tries to protect the innocent from danger.
Mr. Underwood The publisher of Maycomb’s newspaper. He respects Atticus and proves his ally. Keeps a gun on the mob that confronts Atticus on the steps of the jail.
Walter Cunningham A classmate of Scout. He cannot afford lunch one day at school and accidentally gets Scout in trouble.
Tom has one good hand One fact that Atticus establishes about the case is…
