Then there are the Socs who are the rich kids with cool cars that happen to like “jumping” greasers. As these two gangs are rivaling, they both go through some dramatic events that change their perspectives on life. In the novel The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton the character Darrel Curtis is unquestionably influenced by his gang as it prevents him from being successful to becoming the father of the gang, and overall being someone to look up to.
Throughout the novel, the Custom House Surveyor is clearly sympathetic to two of the main characters, Hester, the protagonist, and Dimmesdale.

Realism draws great attention mainly on objectives from specific regions, such as: the settings in which characters live, certain traditions or practices they participate in and the language, or way, that characters speak. Optimism is very rarely used in the literary works of realism. Authors portray life how it really is in their work, rather than how readers may want it to be. Both romanticism and realism had huge impacts on the development on American literature, shaping the way readers choose to think and feel about what they are reading.

Tv/ media is also a frequent motif throughout and it’s appearance draws our attention to the importance of media in controlling and convincing people. Yes, people are willing to submit to government. Even George, who is intelligent, is a law abiding citizen when it comes to removing weights from himself, even when the reader is led to believe that if not for his handicap and the grip of government control that he would ultimately come to the conclusion that the system is flawed.

One might say he/she has supremacy over others. Reverend Hale, Judge Danforth, and Reverend Parris all were viewed as authoritative figures in The Crucible.
