The Outsiders
by S.E. Hinton

Genre
This young adult fiction is a
coming-of-age
story that focuses on Ponyboy as he transitions from childhood to adulthood. He experiences psychological and moral growth, while learning important life lessons.
Setting
The Outsiders
takes place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. S.E. Hinton grew up here. She also wrote the novel while living in Tulsa.
Tone
The attitude a writer takes towards his or her subjects.
Two prominent tones of
The Outsiders
are reflective and sentimental.
Reflective: illustrating innermost thoughts and emotions
Sentimental: affectedly or extravagantly emotional instead of rational
A Town Divided
The teens of Tulsa are split between two major gangs: Socs and Greasers
Symbolism
Switchblade
Two-bit carries a switchblade in the story which is illegal. This represents his disregard for authority and disdain for rules.
Symbolism
Greaser hair
The Greaser hair represents their gang and therefore, their identity.
It is not only important to theirs looks but represents who they are.
Thematic Statements
truth about life
Stereotypes do not reflect a person's true self.
A person's choices greatly affect his/her future.
Loyalty among friends is both important and influential.
Everyone faces hardships in life, no matter where they come from.
"Things are rough all over" (Hinton).
Challenged Book
The Outsiders
is number 38 on the American Library Association's Top 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books list. According to Kristina Rosenthal of The University of Oklahoma, this is a result of the books alleged controversial or "ungodly" themes, its depiction of drinking, gangs, and violence, and the lack of positive role models among the characters (Rosenthal).
Symbolism
Cars represent the Socs power. Because their parents can afford to buy them their “tuff” cars, the Socs have increased mobility and protection. The greasers, who move mostly on foot, are physically vulnerable in comparison to the Socs.
