  • The Socs vs. The Greasers

  • Man vs. Man

  • This conflict shaped and set up the whole story.

Summary of plot
Summary of Plot

  • The Outsiders shows that nothing can come between these teenagers because they are as close as a family.

  • Their love for each other is like a brother’s and is unconditional.

  • It tells you that no matter how a person “lives”, whether rich or poor, they are all the same.


The Greasers conflict between the Socs is violent.

  • Ponyboy is walking home and gets jumped by the Soc.

  • In the park, the Socs try to kill Ponyboy so Johnny stabs one of them badly.

  • One of the Socs beat up Johnny badly causing his face to be covered in blood.

Point of view
Point of View

  • It is in first person, through Ponyboy.

  • It allows you to understand the emotions, situations, and conflict between the Socs and Greasers from one of the Greasers point’s of view.

  • You would think differently of Ponyboy and all the Greasers if it was in the point of view of a Soc.


The yin yang sign symbolizes the relationship between the Socs and the Greasers.

The differences between the two groups of teenagers is obvious, but when you take a step back you see the two groups really make up a whole together, and they aren’t as different as they thought they were.


  • The book is worth reading because of all of the suspense and situations the characters are in. You really get the view of a teenager in the situations, and understand the conflict.
