In chapter 14, why does Dill run away from his home back to Maycomb?
2 Answers | Add Yours
Dill was originally excited to be staying home for the summer with his new father. However, Dill runs away and tells Jem and Scout that his parents didn't need him. They bought him all sorts of toys and other items, but never wanted to spend time with him. They would tell him to leave them alone and go play with whatever they bought for him. The simple answer for Dill was to run away--to run away to a place that had felt the most like home for him, the place he felt the most accepted. For him, that is the Finch house.
