To start off, there are many instances of greasers stereotyping Socs, but here are just a few examples. First, when Ponyboy was looking through Sodapop’s yearbook he stumbled upon a picture of Bob and thought to himself, “What was he like? I knew he liked to pick fights, had the usual Soc belief that living on the West Side made you Mr. Super-Tuff, looked good in dark wine-colored sweaters, and was proud of his rings. But what about the Bob Sheldon that Cherry Valance knew?” (162). In this instance, Ponyboy realizes that he had stereotypes Bob as just a “typical” Soc, mean and tuff without realizing that he was a just a boy too, just like him,
In the beginning of the book when Pony was describing all the Greasers he said that Johnny was like the gang’s pet, everyone’s kid brother. Another thing Ponyboy said that Johnny would never have known what love and affection were without the gang. This shows how much the Greasers care about Johnny, acting like a family towards him. One other idea that is presented in the song is not being the same. This relates to Ponyboy.
Ponyboy is in a gang along with his two brothers and their friends. They are known as greasers for their greasy hair, and because they aren 't the richest people in the town. The greasers rivals, socials or 'socs ', are the opposite of them. They have nice clothing and brand new cars that they drive around town. S.E Hilton started writing this novel when she was only fifteen, and it was published in 1967.
Cherry’s boyfriend constantly gets drunk and mistreats her. Socs have money to spare, but Greasers have to work to survive. Greasers are constantly jumped by Socs that are just trying to find something to do. Socs have trouble being very emotional, while Greasers are overly emotional. For example, when Johnny dies, Darry freaks out, as he does quite often, and has the police kill him, while, when Bob dies, Randy says "it's the
"White trash with Mustangs and madras. "” The Greasers have a reputation for being senseless, lawless young felons. Yet they have an admirable sense of loyalty for one another, which is reflected in their behavioral code and actions from some of the characters. For example, Darry Curtis, Ponyboy’s oldest brother, gave up a college scholarship in order to work to be able to provide for his little brothers since their parents had passed away. Furthermore, Dally Winston demonstrates his heroism when he dies saving Johnny from the burning church.
Freak the Mighty is about a boy named Max, and he is getting bullied. He is getting bullied because he’s “dumb, slow, and stupid”. Until Freak came along. They became best friends, and freak was weird too. Freak was bullied because he was “short, and small,” but very mighty indeed.
The novel “The Outsiders” by S.E Hinton focuses on the differences and similarities of social classes. The greasers, who are on the poorer side of town, and the socs, who live on the rich side of town, are constantly at war. Hinton focuses on a gang named The Curtis gang. This consists on Ponyboy Curtis, Sodapop Curtis, Darry Curtis who are all brothers and are under the care of eldest Darry. Also in the gang are Sodapop’s best friend Steve, Johnny who is Ponyboy’s best buddy, Two-Bit the wise cracker, and Dallas the dangerous one.
Rudy cares so much for his friends, that when he sticks up for them when he’s not supposed to, he is aware of the punishment that could happen. Rudy sticks up Tommy by sticking up for him when Franz Deutscher is yelling at him because he kept marching when he said to stop. Rudy stuck up for Tommy and told Franz that Tommy has bad hearing and Franz made Rudy run. Rudy also protects his friends and I know this because in the book, Rudy comes and grabs Leisel when she is getting whipped, and covers her. Rudy takes the pain that then follows.
“He was famous for his black-handled switchblade (which he couldn’t have acquired without his first talent [stealing] and he was always smarting off to the cops.” This is important because it confirms that Two-bit is a lawbreakers.This is also crucial because it exhibits that, when first read, Two-bit gives the impression of horrible person.“No visitors. But Two-Bit wouldn’t take no for an answer. That was his buddy in there and he aimed to see him.” (Hinton 119)This is vital since it verifies that Two-Bit is willing to execute atrocious actions just to see his friend.This is important because it shows that Two-Bit is an outstanding person deep down because he wants to meet with his friend.After analyzing S.E.Hinton’s book, The Outsiders, I have shown that Two-Bit is a lawbreakers, but is still an admirable person. The greasers act as criminals, but embody morally good people. The greasers personify lawbreakers.
My brother plays with me sometimes, he means it and sometimes he does not. I felt bad when she did that to me. Is not the first time she has done it, but sometimes we play and sometimes we don 't. Why I think pony boy needs to go to the foster care, is that he gets treated bad by his brother 's. When I saw the movie I know that he smokes for a young age.
