I think the women of Maycomb should be talked about now and their relationship to Scout should be discussed. First, Miss Maudie. Miss Maudie is a sweet old lady who likes to garden and bake goods for others. She talks politely and is your average kind Maycomb woman. Her relationship to Scout is precious because of the fact that Scout comes to talk to her a lot. She is basically like a grandmother to Scout. She talks to her about problems and bakes her goods. I like Miss Maudie because she really doesn't have a problem with Scout dressing and acting like a boy.
Miss Dubose was sort of like a crochety old woman who didn't care about anyone's problems but her own. If I were Scout, I would have thought she had a demon in her because of the way she acts at the end of Jem's reading. I know she was having health problems, but as a small child there is no other explanation of why she is doing this. The bell is about to ring so there will be more about the Maycomb woman later. What is your opinion on these woman? DO you think that Miss Dubose has something more to her than her rudeness?
