Carlos’ Outsiders Essay When you change the way you look at something the things you look at change, to give you a wider perspective of what you see. Ponyboy Curtis learns this the hard way.

The narrator of the novel The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, Ponyboy Curtis, is a complicated and emotional character.

In the book, Outsiders, I noticed the most character development in Ponyboy Curtis. Although he didn’t realize many things until the end of the book, I think once everything registered within himself, he took everything that had happened to him in the past couple weeks as a lesson. One thing that Ponyboy finally grasped was that his oldest brother Darry actually cared for him. At first Ponyboy had always thought that Darry didn’t like him and that Darry would rather him be gone.

The Outsiders In my opinion, I think that I can relate to Ponyboy. I think this because like Ponyboy I am caring, respectful, responsible, and could be rough at times. If I were in his situation of Johnny’s death and Dally’s death I would feel the same. Johnny did die a hero but Dally died because he wanted to and was just mad and devastated about Johnny’s death.
