Transcript of The Outsiders

By Alexis Garofalo The Outsiders Theme Plot events Plot Events Resolution Rising Action The theme of the book would be that life's not fair and people from various backgrounds also have problems. In this case the Soc's,in the beginning of the book Ponyboy thought that the Socs had it all good and only saw all the negative things in them. As the book goes on Ponyboy gets close to some of the Socs for example Cherry and Randy he discovers that Socs have problems too, and that their not a lot different from the Greasers. The exposition of the story introduces the gang The Greasers and all the people in the group including Ponyboy,Dally,Johnny,Two-Bit, Steve and Darry. The exposition of the story also introduces the setting and mentions that The Greasers live on the East side of town and The Socs live on the West side of town. S.E Hinton the author of the book also mentions that The Greasers are poor and The Socs are rich. The basic conflict in the story is the fact that The Greasers and the Socs DO NOT get along, just because one is rich and one is poor, also things being rough on both sides of town and neither side knowing it. Further along in the story there is another part of conflict it's when Johnny kills the Soc for the main part that the Soc was attempting to drown Ponyboy and that now Johnny faces charges for manslaughter. I think that the climax is Johnny's death because he was always the "pet" of the group and holds the group. Like in the beginning there's a quote that says "He was the gangs pet everyone's brother"without him the group would just fall apart.He was the only thing Dally loved along with Ponyboys mothers who died so now that he is dead its like Dally had lost his last resort. The resolution is that Ponyboy can now remember Johnny and Dally without feeling sad or pretending that they're still alive he can now accept that their dead. He is also much closer to Darry and Sodapop now than before . Another resolution is that he no longer hates the Socs like he did before and he knows that they are no different then the Greasers. The rising action in the story starts when Ponyboy gets jumped by the Socs. Then the rising action goes on to when Johnny and Ponyboy are found with Soc girls. Later , Ponyboy arrives home late as a result Darry slaps him. Ponyboy is very angry about this and decides to run away with Johnny, while they run away they are confronted by the Socs who wanted their girls back and Johnny ends up killing a Soc.

Ponyboy changes from the beginning to the end is his opinion of Darry changes because in the beginning he talks about how Darry doesn't care about him and only cares for Soda. Before the rumble he knew it was pointless making him wiser than his other friends. He realizes that Soc's and greaser aren't different. Toward the end some Soc's confront im and instead of running away like he did in the beginning he stood up to them with confidence. Character Development -Fearful -Ponyboys brother

-Ponyboy and sodapops brother
-Ponyboys,and Sodas guardian Two Quotes that show how Ponyboy matured -He had quit High School -His real name is Keith A song from Elvis Presley that relates to the story The Outsiders is the song I feel so bad. The reason for this is one of the lyrics in the song "Shake my head and walk away". This relates to the book the Outsiders when Johnny kills the Soc Ponyboy just has to shake his head and walk away from it all. Later into the song Elvis says "Sometimes I think I want (to leave) then again I don't". This relates to when Ponyboy has to leave his family he cares about (mostly Sodapop at the time) when Johnny kills the Soc because he was going to go home anyway and ignore Darry but then everything happened so quickly and then he had to leave. A movie starring Paul Newman that played in 1958 was called Rally Round The Flag Boys! Starring Paul Newman Joanna Woodward Joan Collis and Jack Carson. -Ponyboy described Johnny as "If you can picture a little dark puppy that has been kicked too many times and lost in a crowd of strangers, you'll have Johnny." Another poem by Robert Frost that relates to the book The Outsiders is the poem A late Walk. This relates to the book because the poem means that even in the toughest times of sorrow or loss one can find joy "Of the last remaining aster flower" the last remaining ounce of joy. Towards the end of the story Ponyboy was greatly impacted on the death of Johnny and Dally but even if that happened he can still find joy within being with his brothers Darry and Sodapop. A Late Walk ~Robert Frost When I go up through the mowing field,

The headless aftermath,

Smooth-laid like thatch with the heavy dew,

Half closes the garden path.

And when I come to the garden ground,

The whir of sober birds

Up from the tangle of withered weeds

Is sadder than any words

A tree beside the wall stands bare,

But a leaf that lingered brown,

Disturbed, I doubt not, by my thought,

Comes softly rattling down.

I end not far from my going forth

By picking the faded blue

Of the last remaining aster flower

To carry again to you. Two quotes that show how Ponyboy matured are when in the beginning Ponyboy mentions how he and Darry are not close to Cherry "He thinks I'm a pain in the neck. He likes Soda-everybody likes Soda-but he can't stand me. I bet he wishes he could stck me in a home somewhere, and he'd do it too,if Soda'd let him." pg 50
The next quote towards the end of the story was when Ponyboy saw Darry in the hospital "In that second what Soda and Dally and Two-Bit had been trying to tell me came through. Darry did care about me, maybe as much as he cared about Soda, and because he cares he was trying to hard to make something out of me. When he yelled "Pony, where have you been all this time?" he meant "Pony, you've scared me to death. Please be careful, because I couldn't stand it if anything happened to you." pg 106

Comparing these two quotes you can see how he had matured from beginning to end because in the beginning he thought that Darry was always strict with him and not with Soda and that Darry didn't love him but towrds the end Ponyboy had then realized all the sacrifices that Darry had done for him, like not going to college to get a job to maintain Pony and Soda. Ponyboy had then realized how much Darry cared about him. My cat Bambi "reading" Gone With The Wind. :) (Ponyboy enjoys reading Gone with the wind because of the gallant characters)
