Character Analysis Atticus Finch The voice of reason in the town of Maycomb and in the novel Atticus disperses the wisdom and logic that is the core of the novel He is a man that goes beyond the word tolerance tolerance is merely to put up with something Atticus looks at everyone and tries to understand who they are and where they are coming from And he quietly and delicately passes on wisdom to his children about taboo subjects like racism Atticus is also a consistent man People say that he is the same in the courtroom as he is on the streets The code of conduct that he maintains for himself remains the same no matter what situation he is placed in That is why he feels he is responsible to take Tom Robinsons case and defend him to the best of his abilities If he didnt he would see himself as a hypocrite Although Atticus seems mellow and even old-fashioned many of his beliefs are quite revolutionary He allows Calpurnia to truly be a member of his family He gives her full respect and fair treatment at all times When Cal takes his children to her church he seems unaffected It is all part of his consistent code of conduct At times Atticus may almost seem a caricature of goodness Never once does he falter or think ill of people In chapters 30 and 31 Atticus is again shown as very fair and honest As Mr Tate and Atticus are talking on the porch about the death of Bob Ewell and Jems involvement in the matter He doesnt want the public of Maycomb to think Jem was let off the murder because the sheriff and him are close and has paid Mr Tate off or something to that degree Atticus wants there to be a fair trial to really show that Jem didnt commit
