The Outsiders (Character Analysis)
Transcript of The Outsiders (Character Analysis)
Cherry's thoughts and feelings
1- Cherry feels there is no such thing between grease and socs. They both have equal problems no matter where they come from.
The Outsiders was written by S.E. Hinton. It was published in 1967 when Hinton was only seventeen years old. S.E. Hinton was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she still lives with her husband and son, Nick. Her full name is Susan Eloise Hinton. She changed it because she often wrote her stories from a boy’s perspective and she wanted to make sure her work was not criticized against because she is a girl. She is famous for writing adolescent literature and is often referred to as the “voice of the youth”.

''Its not just money, part of it but not all, you greasers have a different set of values'.
What The Character Says.....
This is what Cherry explains to Ponyboy. This quote shows exactly how Cherry feels about society everywhere.
What these thoughts and feelings show:
No matter where you come from, who you are, or what you look like people will always discriminate you for stupid reasons. This is very unfair but its reality. ( Just like greasers making fun of socs and socs making fun of greasers), its important to find a good group of friends that will stand up for you, like Ponyboy and his gang.
''Not only you watch the sunset Ponyboy''.
4-Cherry speaks her mind, while not being rude or ignorant. She always listens to two sides of the story and stands up for what she believes in,even though there may be consequences with the socs such as friends, popularity or other social acceptances.
What The Character Does
3-Cherry does some very brave actions at the most needed time.First of all, when she, Ponyboy, Marcia and Two-bit are walking home two socs drive by and threaten a fight. Even though Cherry and Marcia really don't want to drive with Bob because he is drunk, Cherry and Marcia risk their lives just so a fight don't brake out .
Quote#1: " I cant stand fights, no stop it!".
Quote#2: " She drives up to the vacant lot in her little sting ray , that took a lot of nerve, most of us were for jumping her, being the dead guys girl".
***(This is what Two-bit tells Ponyboy and Johnny when they are in hiding)***
What these actions show:
These actions show that Cherry is not a fighter and likes to settle problems peacefully. Even though Ponyboy is a grease this doesn't matter, Cherry believes there are no barriers between grease and socs and there is not need to discriminate people because of physical, mental or other characteristics. Cherry does what is right even though she may be in a hard situation. People like Cherry will always do the best thing even though they are outnumbered. This book is only a small glimpse of social cliques and groups, There is many more, this is a serious issue that can result in bullying.
Quote#1: "That's an original and lovely name."
Quote#2; "Whats a nice smart kid like you running around with grease like that?"
**This is what Cherry says when figuring out Ponyboy's name.**
**This quote is when Cherry asks why Ponyboy is hanging out with Dally, When Ponyboy says
"that's my brother"
What these actions show:
These words show that Cherry is accepting of others even if they are different or "original", such as Ponyboy's name. A second example is when Cherry walks home with Ponyboy, Two-bit and Johnny. Cherry does not discriminate because they are greasers she looks through that, only seeing their positve traits (like Ponyboy being smart) and Johnny being kind. Cherry talks to them with respect and sincerity unlike most Socs.
