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.
The author provides the reader with mixed feeling about Amir. In his childhood in Kabul Amir comes off as heartless person. He is this because he has done evil stuff in his life. In the beginning of the story something bad happens to Hassan, Amir says,¨In the end, I ran.
Billy Buck is the fatherly man that everyone can’t help but love and trust. In The Red Pony by John Steinbeck, Billy Buck plays the trust worthy, impressive man everyone wants as a father. Billy is very prideful in the fact that he was able to help Jody, the son of Billy’s employer, and be the father Jody wished he had. Billy felt awful when Jody lost faith in him.

Acts of violence and hate are never the answer to any problem, yet people seek it just to have fun, show pride, or be gallant.

All of the Greasers were hurt really bad, the only thing they got for this loss was the Socs being chased out
Dally has the biggest reputation for being the best, toughest and the meanest in the outsiders. He also served time in juvenile prison and even came from a broken home environment … in the book and the movie. Ponyboy fears dally and most of all ponyboy dislikes dally for his horrible and rude personality. When they hide out in the abandoned
The first example of these fights is between the greasers and the Socs. Both classes disliked each other, just because of prejudice. The greasers assumed that all Socs were condescending, egocentric, and gaudy, and all the Socs identified the greasers as dangerous hoods. Therefore, lots of Socs would jump the greasers and vice versa. The next example of prejudice and hate is the fact that Ponyboy hates all guys with green eyes (page 1, chapter 1) only because he associates green eyes with Socs.
Balram admits that he has always been a liar, and it is by lying that he has ensured his existence in a fiercely competitive world. His disloyalties do not fill him with remorse; instead rage overwhelms him. Every time he steals his master's money, he is reminded of how much the feudal
“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.
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.
A hero, according to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary is “a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities”, or “one who shows courage”. Write an essay explaining why you believe each of the Greasers - Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally - could be considered a hero. Include your own definition of hero in the essay, and be sure to explain how each character, in his own way, meets your definition. Remember to support your ideas with examples. 1
Due to the descriptiveness of the characters in The Outsiders, it may be easy to form judgements about these people. Opinions are something you make based on the knowledge you have of the person both fictional and real. Deciding whether or not you like a person in the book is your belief and may not coincide with another person’s opinion. In The Outsiders, there were a plethora of characters to choose from to be a certain role in your life if you were a greaser. If you were a greaser, some people that prove to be good examples for frenemies, enemies and “baes” are Cherry, Bob and Dallas.
