Bob Ewell and Mr. Atticus


A. Remember this scene?:  
Well, the character speaking to Mr.
Atticus, Jem's and Scout's father, is
Bob Ewell. Ewell first appears here
to complain to Mr. Atticus about
taking the case against Bob's claim
about Mayella's (Bob's daughter)
rape.


Ewell, Bob's last name is an Old
English version of the word "Evil."
Thus, this character represents the
antagonist in this novel.

Now, read this article that came out
last month about Paul Ewell, dean of
a Virginia University:

1.  Professor asks everyone who
voted for Biden to unfriend him.  
Paul Ewell-Linked?

the 1930's, the 1960's? What do
