11/5 TKAM Thematic topics and Film reading

The first chapter of To Kill a Mockingbird introduces us to how Harper Lee uses five thematic topics in the novel:
  • decorum
  • traumatic violence
  • race & class separation
  • dialect
  • ancestry
In starting our reading of the film, we wondered how the film could adapt "dual narrative voice." While the book switches between older and younger Scout, the film focuses on younger Scout with a voice-over of older Scout.
