    I've read the book a couple of times recording quotes etc, have done research, and completely understand all aspects to do with Bob Ewell, but I wondered if anyone had some solid quotes on him from the novel to use in the exam tomorrow if necessary? As Mayella has been used, hopefully (for me!) he won't come up, but I want to be prepared for if he does and would really appreciate if anyone had some decent quotes/page numbers to memorise

    Many thanks

    I only have these quotes specifically on Bob Ewell:
    ‘Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post-officecorner, spat in his face, and told him he’d get him if it took the rest of his life’ - this shows the contrast between Atticus' decency and Bob Ewell
    ‘Bob Ewell acquired and lost a job’ - shows his parasitical nature


    I'm so scared for tomorrow :-/ What do you think will come up?
    Ps. what other book are you doing?

    Hi! I'm doing this exam tomorrow to, I'm on the exam board ccea

    Bob Ewell is described as a "little bantam ****"

    Atticus describes his questionable morals, he's drunk but allows his children to starve; "when a man spends his relief checks on green whisky, his children have a way of crying from hunger pains".

    "They were people, but they lived like animals"

    Tom Robinson said in his testimony (about Mayella and her father) "She says what her papa do to her don't count" - you could use this as a Bob Ewell quote even though it initially refers to Mayella.

    He is also arrogant, "his chest swelled, and once more he was a little red rooster"

    He also spat in Atticus's face, and threatens him

    He also has no job and lives off social security money.

    He's rude and ill- mannered at the trial, he calls the judge "Cap'n"

    Hope this helps a bit, good luck!

    Thank you lots I really appreciate it!
    Yes I've been dreading this one most...will be so glad to get it done though and have done all I can, I'm sure you have too: best of luck! I would hope a more central character, perhaps Cal or Jem and then overall the main themes in the novel for Part B; I have awful feelings it'll be someone slightly more minor like the Sheriff or someone else with less obvious quotes overall, but hopefully not!

    The Sunlight on the Grass anthologies, what about you?

    Yeah, I'm hoping for Cal or Jem too, or possibly even Aunt Alexandra but idk I'm just hoping for the best for tomorrow, there's nothing more I can do, but I'm praying that a relatively straightforward question comes up for both parts! Good luck to you too
    I'm doing Lord of the flies… it seems like nobody does both TKAM and LOTF together!

    Ahh, I did LOTF for my lit coursework and then that was it!
