217 Words1 Page
Ponyboy is a kid who had to grow up and mature to survive in the environment he lived in. It was a necessary evil that two of his friends had to die in order for him to get over being naive. He needed to learn everyone has problems and denying them or being ignorant will not help him. At the core Ponyboy is intelligent,emotional, and naive. He always had his nose in a book and has a thirst for knowledge. Specifically Ponyboy’s favorite book, Gone With the Wind played a part in the ending that coincides with Johnny’s death. Cherry Valance said that Greasers are more emotional that Socs and Ponyboy is the embodiment of that. All through the story he is a rollercoaster of emotions, ranging from depressed and in denial to paranoid and nostalgia.
