When he isn’t playing soccer or hanging out with his friends he is definitely not with his brother. He is scared out of his mind that his brother will try to hurt or even kill him. Until he finally stands up to his brother at the end of the book when he tells the police everything he knew and all of his other fears like when he went to Tangerine Middle even after being scared at the carnival, Paul can’t overcome his fearful blindness. Paul’s fear keeps him from enjoying life and finding his best friends.
“My father had been a vaquero all his life,” (2). Gabriel only knew how to be a vaquero and did not want to give up his lifestyle until Antonio came into the world then he and Marie decides that Gabriel give up his lifestyle in exchange for finding better place to raise their family. But that did not mean Gabriel giving his dream to explore the Illano. “My father’s dream was to gather up his older sons and move westward to the land of the setting sun (14)”. The move and along with his older sons going to war made Gabriel sad and fearful of not accomplish his dream so he soon found hope in liquor to wash away the pain but it only fueled his rage.
Symbolic interactionism is the idea that people grow and develop through social interactions. For example, Gordie had recently lost his brother, Denny and Gordie’s father was making him feel unwanted by blaming him for the loss. In the movie the boys carried a gun for protection. When they found the body, an older group of boys came and were trying to take the body by threatening the younger boys, but Gordie picks up the gun and points it at one of the older boys and tell them that they need to leave them and the body alone. The older boys left and nothing happened, but this scene showed the change that Gordie had made because he had the courage to stand up the the older
Dementia and physical illness rendered him too weak to rely on, so rather than asking how Elie would live without his father, a new question was presented: How would his father live without Elie? Immediately after arriving to a liberation camp, the surviving prisoners were divided into various groups, prompting Elie to squeeze his father’s hand as if his life depended on it. Unfortunately, exposure to such unforgiving environments had introduced Elie’s father to the kind of seductive release mentioned previously. This was conveyed through an argument between the two where Elie refused to let his father sleep. Elie had known that if the latter slept, he would never wake up.
so why fight to live? However Elie was not going to give up on his father, not yet. Gravediggers were coming to throw out all who were dead; so many people were being thrown out. Elie was scared they were going to throw out his father, he tried waking him but nothing occurred. The gravediggers approached Elie.
A conflict that happened was when Raven got into a huge argument with her father who demanded her to stop seeing and having contact with Mizan. “I’m going to say this one more time, I don’t want to hear about you being around Mizan again” (331). Benny Atkins didn’t trust Mizan from the very start, so after the incident that took place in their home (Raven and Morgan being held at gunpoint by masked men) he didn’t want her with him until he found out who was behind the burglary. Raven’s father only wanted to keep her safe let alone only do what’s best for her.
Let’s not consort with them. To show an unfelt sorrow is an office Which the false man does easy. I’ll to England” (2.3.127-129). This shows that Malcolm is already thinking to preserve the bloodline of his family and to trust no one but themselves because they do not know who killed their father. Later in the play, Shakespeare reveals what Malcolm was doing in England instead of hiding, “[b]efore thy here-approach, Old Siward with ten thousand
I’ll watch over you and you’ll watch over me... we’ll look after each other(pg.89).” This quote shows that Elie has never said this to his father. Now that they are in a possibility of death, they need to take care of each other. Also, the story of Rabbi Eliahou's son leaving him because he was too weak made his son leave his father.
The brothers were breaking the law, but doing it for their family so you wanted them to get away with the crime. Yet, the Sheriffs were doing their job to stop the brothers, yet when the sheriff gets shot, the brother becomes the antagonists. The whole film is a battle between the two and you never really know which side to be on. Overall, I really enjoyed the film, and I would have never seen this type of film if it weren’t for this
Juror #3 mixed his personal conflicts with his son running away from home to the young man accused of hurting his father. His assumption was that young men who don't get along with their fathers might go as far as to kill him. Which is a very informal practice in a small group setting. Another incident of a informal role is to not provide the evidence first hand how can a room full of jurors decide the fate of somebody when they don't have precise evidence to incriminate him. Other jurors based the fact that the accused lived in a slum and that slum residents are delinquents by nature.
Incoming! There was a report of a small church fire at Windrix Hill, Oklahoma. The fire started at 2:00 pm on Friday 1965. It was reported as being caused by a burning cigarette left on the floor. Three boys, Ponyboy Curtis, Johnny Cade, and Dallas Minston were on the run for a murder of a Soc named Bob Sheldon.
First off, Ponyboy and Johnny went to Dally Winston after killing Bob because of his superior skills in fleeing from the cops and trouble. Dally has committed and have been associated with crimes before so Ponyboy and Johnny went to him for help and advice. They know him very well because they are all close because of the gang. In the text on page 18 “Dally had spent three years on the wild side of New York and had been arrested at the age of ten.” Dally has an experience with the police like no one else they know.
“Get tough like me and you will not get hurt.” Dally says this to Ponyboy on page 147 in the book. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton is about how you treat other people and the author explains by talking about conflict between the poor Greasers and the rich Socs in the mid-1960s in Tulsa, OK. The Greasers win the rumble, Johnny dies and Dally is very upset and gets himself killed. Dally is a round character because he is both a cold and caring Greaser.
The biggest influence in shaping Ponyboy’s identity was his loyalty to his gang as throughout the book the author shows just how loyal Ponyboy is. To begin with, in the story, Darry did not want Ponyboy to go to the rumble because he was quite beat up. However, Ponyboy really believed he should go because they were down in numbers and he wanted to fight for his gang anyway. In the text it said, “Oh, no, I thought in mortal fear, I’ve got to be in it. Right then the most important thing in my life was helping us whip the Socs.”
Everybody has a soft side, they just don’t always chose to show it. Some people keep theirs a secret, as a defense mechanism because they are afraid of getting hurt. In S.E Hinton’s The Outsiders, one of the main characters, Dally, doesn’t reveal his until the very end. He has been hurt before, and is scared that if he lets it show, the same thing will happen again. However, very soon after he reveals his soft side, he is hurt worse than ever before.
