3) Man vs. Society (social) – Ponyboy and the Greasers struggle against the wealth and the elevated social position of the Socs

4) Man vs. Himself/Herself (psychological) - Ponyboy struggles with the trouble he feels he has caused and whether to turn himself in or not


Theme

It doesn’t feel good to be on the ‘outside’

Life Isn’t Fair

Family relationships change and evolve

Nothing Gold Can Stay


Symbol-Colors

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature’s first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf’s a flower,

But only so an hour.

As leaf subsides to leaf,

So Eden sank to grief.

So dawn goes down today,

Nothing gold can stay.


Connections to………

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

That was Then, This is Now by S.E. Hinton

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare


Critique

Written by Hinton as a 16 year old, so sometimes themes are oversimplistic. The world is black or white, Greaser or Soc, nothing in between.

Hinton criticized for her overly macho male characters and her rather flat and stereotypical female characters.

Very accessible to young readers. It was essentially the first young adult novel that gave a realistic look at what it was like to be a teenager.
