Chapter 10 Analysis

    Table of contents
    No headers

         At the beginning of this chapter, Jem and Scout were ashamed of their father, Atticus, due to his lack of "cool" skills or abilities. As the chapter goes on, Jem begins to be inspired by Atticus. Towards the end of the chapter, Atticus reveals his amazing ability with a gun. Jem and Scout find out that he was called "One-shot Finch" as a child, and that makes them proud of their father, although they were curious as to why he kept his talent a secret. Atticus never revealed his talent because he felt that it was an unfair advantage for him, and so gave up on it until the time came that he needed to shoot again. By the end of this chapter, Jem finally decides that he wants to be just like his dad, a gentleman.
