Dally is a pivotal character in The Outsiders, a novel written by S.E. Hinton. The Outsiders was written to relate to a younger audience. This book handles topics such as society, class, and violence. Dally is “the real character of the group. ”(10).
After reading ‘The Outsiders’, I have really started to get to know the characters. My favorite character is Dally. I like him because he is kind of like a leader in the group. He doesn’t take anything from anyone. Everytime somthing exciting happens he is always the one to step in and sauce it up.
Dally has the biggest reputation for being the best, toughest and the meanest in the outsiders. He also served time in juvenile prison and even came from a broken home environment … in the book and the movie. Ponyboy fears dally and most of all ponyboy dislikes dally for his horrible and rude personality. When they hide out in the abandoned
Dally is not strong mentally (when he couldn’t let Johnny go), he really does not do good deeds, and he does not care about any other people than only Johnny, and he’s rude to others and bad at using words. A quotation that supports my statement is, “What for? Get back in here before I beat your head in.” (p.90) This quotation supports my statement because Dally said this to Ponyboy when he hopped off the car and said to see what the deal is when he saw the old church on fire, it proves that Dally does not care about other stuff that does not involve him and that he’s rude to others and using
Dallas Winston, the “Outsider” Ponyboy and his gang are all considered “Outsiders” but there is one greaser from their gang that stands out the most with the title of “Outsider”. Dallas Winston is a hoodlum from New York who had been arrested many times since he was 10 years old. His parents weren’t around when he was growing up, and this really affected his life because he didn’t have anyone to tell him what to do. The author chose this title for the book because she wanted to give an immediate example of how the greasers were treated back then. In the novel The Outsiders, written by S.E. Hinton, there are many characters that could be considered “Outsiders”; but Dally is the biggest “Outsider” in the story.
Dally not only died a hero to Johnny, he died a hero to many others as well. Dally showed his courage when he put his life at risk to help Johnny and Ponyboy run away from the crime they committed, and he also saved Johnny and Ponyboy from the fire inside of the church. Dally might have been cowardly in some parts of The Outsiders ,but his heroic acts to Ponyboy, Johnny, and other members of the gang show that he died a hero. First of all, Dally died a hero because he helped Ponyboy and Johnny hide from the crime that they committed even though he took a risk in doing so. Dally gave information to two wanted criminals on where to hide, and the police were not as nice to Greasers as they were to Socs.
He didn’t care, after finding out that johnny has died he goes crazy and robs a store. As he is running out he gets shot in his lower abdomen but still runs off. He calls Pony, Steve, Two-bit, Darry, and Soda, when they get to the vacant lot where he was surrounded by policemen, he pulled out an unloaded gun, he wanted to die that 's why he did it, he was gunned down by the police. Dally got what he wanted and dying was what he wanted after Johnny died, he died a hoodlum… ‘“Dally didn 't die a hero, he died violent, violent, and desperate. Like we knew he
Dally A rock-hard hood who never backs down from any challenge. Dally is a character in the book “Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton. The Outsiders is a book where a ragtag group of greasers band together and overcome victories, tragedies, and above all, build an even stronger bond of brotherhood. This story begins in the town of Tulsa, Oklahoma, where Ponyboy(our main character) is walking home from the movies and gets ambushed by a large group of Socs(Sociables-the “popular/rich” clique).
In young adult literature there are many characters who leave a perennial impression on the reader. Many of these are considered dynamic characters because of changes they induced throughout the plot. In S.E. Hinton’s novel The Outsiders, Johnny Cade is a character that goes through a major change in personality. At first a boy who is afraid of his own shadow, Johnny turns into a gallant hero that risked his life to save children.
(1.48) After Johnny died, Dally makes an enormous sacrifice that took away his life. He loved Johnny so much that he couldn't take the fact he was gone. Dally was known to be the most cold-blooded member of the gang but after Johnny's death, he was the one who showed the most affection. Dally wouldn’t have been shot if he didn’t love Johnny so much, and sacrificed himself.
Dally is extremely brave to do all of these acts of courage. In conclusion, Dally is an exquisite role model that contains many qualities that an excellent role model would have. Some of these are bravery, confidence, and leadership. He is like a leader of a pack. He risks his life every day for each of us.
The narrator of the novel The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, Ponyboy Curtis, is a complicated and emotional character. He goes through numerous changes in the book and you get a good idea of his feelings through actions towards others. He proves to be empathetic, caring, and a dreamer. He shows this during situations with his brothers and even with the other Greasers. During the story, Darry is always telling Ponyboy, although he is a intelligent kid, that he needs to use his head.
In the original novel, The Outsiders, towards the ending Dally decides to rob a grocery store. He always robbed and got into trouble because he wanted the attention his parents never gave him. When the police caught Dally, he pulled out a gun and is instantly shot and struck with many gunshots. Ponyboy believes Dally did this because Johnny was dead, and Johnny was the only thing he ever loved. Dally cut his life short because he believed he had nothing else to live for once Johnny was no longer there.
Webster’s dictionary defines a hero as “a person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities; a person who is greatly admired; the chief male character in a story, play, movie, etc.” Looking at the list, Winston only fits one of these criteria. Winston is not a hero, even though he is the protagonist in this story. His actions and behavior throughout the book is unbecoming of a hero, and in the upcoming paragraphs, I will discuss what discredits him as a hero.
