On the other side, Ponyboy experiences denial and depression, but
“For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice- no power currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.” John Burroughs. One of the points he is making is that getting anything of value accomplished or done requires sacrifice. Making sacrifices requires one to get out of their comfort zone. In the book The Outsiders by S.E Hinton, the characters make sacrifices and get out of their comfort zones for each other. Throughout the novel, characters serve and give of themselves for each other in order to protect the ones they love. Darry makes these kind of sacrifices for his brothers. Later, Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally risk their lives trying to save each other. The
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). All of Pony’s greaser gang rescues him and chases the Socs away. Pony is okay, but shaken up. Later in the novel, Pony, Johnny, and Dally go to the Nightly double and meet Cherry Valance and Marcia. It, for the most part, goes well. A while after that,
Darry Curtis from S.E. Hinton's the Outsiders is both a Greaser and Soc. Darry Curtis is part of a gang that consists of his brothers Ponyboy the smart and Soda Curtis the handsome, Two-bit Matthews the shoplifter, Johnny Cade the troubled, Dallas Winston the thug, and Steve Randal the car thief. Darry Curtis, the fatherly figure of the gang, has an average physical features, a weird role, and some, interesting personality
Dally or Dallas Winston was a seventeen year old. He was the toughest and most dangerous member of the gang as a result of his time spent in New York. He had a tough childhood, and was arrested at the age of 10. He identifies with Johnny because of how both of their parents treated them. Johnny idolises him, and Johnny is the only one who Dally loves, according to Ponyboy.
How can two people who have so many differences be friends? Friends do not always have to have similarities, they can have differences, too. In the novel, The Outsiders by S.E Hinton, Johnny and Dally, two friends, have many similarities and differences.
If Ponyboy had to describe his older brother, “He looks older than twenty-tough, cool, and smart” (Hinton 6). Having a good image like the one Darry has on the gang can really affect them positively as they look up to someone to hopefully strive for. Darry knew that none of the boys had a father to look up to so instead of being another member of the Greasers, he took the biggest responsibility ever, which is to be the “man” of the the group. Darrel has every internal characteristic of being a good person but he also wants the gang to look their best to keep the reputation of a Greaser high. On the night of the rumble Darry was for sure trying to be an epitome for his gang and maybe even impress the Socs, “Darry had on a black T-shirt that showed every muscle on his chest even the flat hard muscles of his stomach” (Hinton 132). Greasers are always in competition with the Socs, always trying to defeat each other
After reading the article about Segun, along with finishing ‘The Outsiders’ by S.E. Hinton, I felt that there was a sound similarity with Dally, the definitive ‘gangster’ of the group in ‘The Outsiders’, and Segun, a ringleader of various gangs in Toronto.
The book, The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton is about two gangs who did not like each other in the hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, in the middle of the 1960s. The theme of the book is growing up and learning about life. One character who stands out in the story is Dallas because he comes from the poor side of town. He is a static character. The character Dally is troubled, tough, and caring.
In the 1960s novel, The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton, there is an on-going war between two gangs named the Socials, or the Socs, and the greasers. The Socials live on the west side of the town and the greasers live on the east, however, that is not the only difference between the two gangs. Perhaps the biggest difference between the two is the wealth disparity. The Socials are in the upper class and the greasers are in the lower class. Throughout the novel, there is a constant struggle for power between the two gangs resulting in many injuries and a few deaths.The main character, Ponyboy, also experienced near-death a few times. He is a greaser who lives with his two brothers, Darry and Sodapop, and has several friends who him and his brothers are very close with, including Two-Bit, Dally, and Johnny. The mutual loyalty that Ponyboy’s friends and family shared with each other, ended up saving Pony’s life multiple times.
The only thing I could think about right then was how to tell Dally. I mean, Johnny knew that Dally didn’t listen to anyone, he was stubborn, and the fact that it had to do with Johnny made it even worst. But, as I sat down on my bed and starting thinking, I knew I had to do it. I thought to myself, “You know what? Who knows? It might turn out for the better and help Dally handle all this easier.” So I sat there, and started to think of the ways I could tell him. I could give him the note and let that be that, let him read it for himself and make out what he wanted to of it. But I knew that Dally would end up doing something crazy, so that wouldn’t work. I thought about maybe having the whole gang over and reading it to them all at one time.
Teenagers need to have love and support. Teens need something solid to stand on. Love and support are necessary because teens need someone by their side to give them those little boosts that help them through their early lives. Teens need to be supported and loved so they grow up being a nice and friendly person. Teens also need limits to help guide them throughout their early lives, if their parents dont, teens can end up like bob. Give teens all the support and love they need throughout their early lives.
Darry helps the idea of fighting stereotypes because of helping Ponyboy when he was struggling. The Greasers (a gang in The Outsiders) are not stereotypically enjoyable people, but Darry took care of Sodapop and Ponyboy for years working hours on end. Darry takes care of the boys by operating like a father to them. Ponyboy says that he is just a boy that grew up too fast. Darry does challenging
In the book I read called The Outsiders By S.E Hinton. The characters mentioned in this book intently are Ponyboy, Sodapop, and darrel. These three boys are brothers. Two other main characters are Johnny and steve. In this book they are considered greasers on the other side of town. In my understanding there are two kinds of boys they’re are greasers and socials. The socials are the rich kids that act all that and have the courage to bully others for how they look, they think they are better than them. On the other hand ponyboy and his squad are greasers they are the boys from the hood with the slim hair, black jacket. In the beginning of the story the greasers were walking and socials came behind them and attacked them
