From this very first scene, we are able to see Toby as a sensitive, caring brother, while Tanner is a criminal who has done past crimes, who uses obscene language, and has no self-control. Tanner punches the bank teller in the nose and as they drive off Toby comment on the fact that no one was
In the book, Elie feels close to his father, but after time they start to fall apart. On page 112 Elie states, "And deep inside me, if I could have searched the recesses of my feeble conscience, I might have found something like: Free at last!". (Wiesel 112).

“He was famous for his black-handled switchblade (which he couldn’t have acquired without his first talent [stealing] and he was always smarting off to the cops.” This is important because it confirms that Two-bit is a lawbreakers.This is also crucial because it exhibits that, when first read, Two-bit gives the impression of horrible person.“No visitors. But Two-Bit wouldn’t take no for an answer. That was his buddy in there and he aimed to see him.” (Hinton 119)This is vital since it verifies that Two-Bit is willing to execute atrocious actions just to see his friend.This is important because it shows that Two-Bit is an outstanding person deep down because he wants to meet with his friend.After analyzing S.E.Hinton’s book, The Outsiders, I have shown that Two-Bit is a lawbreakers, but is still an admirable person.

From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.

Celie's father (Pa), is not only verbally abusive, but also physically abusive, “He beat me for dressing trampy but he do it to me anyway.” (6). Pa beat Celie for the way that she dressed, but he also beat her for no reason at all. During this time in history, it was very common to beat your children or your wife, even though it was made illegal in 1920. Physical abuse is seen throughout the novel and is inflicted on Celie by both her father and husband Mr._____.

There are different kinds of courage a person can have. There is no one way courage can be defined. A man who confronts a murderer can be considered courageous, and a man who leaves his best friend of forty two years can also be regarded as courageous. The only action in common between these two events is the fact that they are doing something that would frighten them. In Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner, there are different kinds of courage each character in the book experiences.
Gary Gilmore was sent to prison when he was younger for petty crimes, and once he was freed he found a job, a girlfriend, and bought a car. Most notably, he earned money and fell in love but he reverted back to his old ways and started drinking and became violent. Mailer does an above average job displaying this, “Gary had to fight him right in the bar. He knocked the guy out,”(Mailer, 47). Even after Gary made a good change for himself he relapsed and started to have outburst and become obnoxious, which shows how hard a person can try, however they can never escape their bad habits.
