I 'd just as soon tease a full-grown grizzly; but for some reason, Darry seems to like being teased by Soda.” However, they often disagree regarding Ponyboy’s safety and education. Sodapop is quite lenient towards Ponyboy whereas, Darry resents this behavior. Sodapop and Darry’s disagreements are often present in the novel but, it is truly perceptible on two occasions. The first time occurs right after Ponyboy is attacked by the Socs, he is criticized by Darry who doesn’t understand his brother’s behavior. Sodapop immediately defends his younger brother against his older one which leads Darry to remind Sodapop that he is the one in charge “When I want my kid brother to tell me what to do with my other kid brother’, I’ll ask you – kid
He would always listen to me no matter what he was doing.” (Hinton 175) Pony never realized their relationship was only a one way street until now. He thought their relationship was all good, but that's not how soda saw it. A relationship like this shows readers that if people would try to see from someone else's point of view, they could have a different opinion of other
The readers can also tell he loved the gang as much as he loved his life (although Ponyboy stated in the book, “life was one big joke to Two-Bit”) but clearly, he was so energetic and lively and funny, how could he not love his life and his gang? For instance, he immediately protested when Cherry
As a consequence, his classmates start calling him loser, since he makes them not winning the Field Race. He has a dream which is being like his father, a mailman who has to deliver the letters even thought it is raining or snowing. Also, snicker-doodles are the favourite cookies of Donald. In addition, he loves soccer as it is free-for-all and not like football which is only fun for the ball carrier. When he was a child, he always said yahoo and he was not afraid of darkness.
(We need something to fill in here). Then after that part, at the end of the movie we find what happened and i accidentally gave it to my grandma for Christmas. (WE NEED TO ADD WAY MORE SOON) Characters: Nolan - Kevin Oswald = Nerd/Chemist Geeky ass clothes, glasses, not too stereotypical tho the look has to be just enough to show that he’s a nerd but is kinda the plug too so he’s respected. He is very smart when he talks, knows chemistry to an extent, but doesn't typically do well with violence. We become friends with him early in the movie and figure out he can cook our shit.
Even when he was a star he couldn't even go to a restaurant to get a pen to sign autographs because of the color of his skin. This is similar to when Jackie Robinson was an elite baseball player and still was treated like a second class citizen. He is inspirational because despite facing so many obstacles, he still found a way to become successful. Dick Gregory's novel's purpose is to demand sympathy. He knows that most people haven't experienced the racism that he has and
Take classism and stereotyping, and they work as a catalyst together towards violence, which is seen throughout the story. Violence is seen commonly, between Socs and Greasers due to the long going rivalry between them. A good example of this is the rumble, a large hand-to-hand engagement between the Socs and the Greasers. Violence can also result in untimely deaths, such as Dally and Johnny who died due to a murder caused by classism. Another example of violence in The Outsiders is when Johnny gets jumped in the beginning of his short, painful, life.
Everyone in the “Greasers” in The Outsiders had different reasons to be part of the gang. “We were used to seeing Johnny banged up- his father clobbered him around a lot” (Hinton, 32). “Dally hated doing things the legal way. He liked to show he didn’t care if there was a law or not (Hinton, 20). Johnny and Dally are both members of the Greasers and have different reasons to be part of it.
In this case the periods show a tone of simple and it is no big deal to “cross” the train tracks. It specifically says “We dared each other./ Laughed a little./ Thought about it./ Said, what's the big deal./ Thought about that.” (Rodriguez 6-10). This is trying to get the mood of how short and easy it would be by writing small, short sentence with period at the end. In lines 54-58 where it quotes, “Plenty reason to get my brother/ by the throat, taking turns/ punching him in the face,/ cutting his lower lip, punching, him vomiting.” All the
He expresses the greasers as people who are identified as hoodlums, and the poor community in the East side of Oklahoma, however he encounters various predicaments which alter his matter of perspective towards ones identity. Pony boy shows his apprehension of the suppositions the community has for greasers, which includes their grim appearance, rivalry and distaste for the socials, their actions and approach to situations, which is mostly theft and crime: “Greasers are almost like hoods; we steal things and drive old souped-up cars and hold up gas stations and have a gang fight once in a while.” Greasers are also assumed to be uneducated, school dropouts and individuals who lack principal. Despite belonging to this social set, Ponyboy considers himself different from others around him. He
This part of the book shows that Claire could be partly responsible for the accident and could probably be also a perpetrator in this situation. Tom Brennan also added to Daniels rage when Daniel was angry by trying to stop him from doing something stupid and starting a fight. The community of Mumbilli could also be perpetrators altogether in a way because when they were still in Mumbilli the Brennan’s got a lot of hate from the town even having “shame on you Brennan’s” (P. 174) written on their back wall at their Mumbilli
