Conflicts is a Point of View in A.E. Hinton's Novel The Outsiders
Almost everyone is familiar with the conflict between the Empire and the Rebels in the movie Star Wars. It is a conflict between good and evil, but real life is seldom like that. In the novel The Outsiders, the conflict results from two good people who just have very different views of the situation thy are stuck in. Ponyboy resents his older brother Darry, who is in charge of him. Ponyboy doesn't do this just because he's a kid and all kids want to rebel. Although many young people resent a parent's authority over them, in Ponyboy's case this is worse because the person who is in charge of him is Darry. Because Darry is only Ponyboy's older brother, Ponyboy has real reasons to think Darry shouldn't ell him what to do. On the other hand, Darry is stressed out because he knows that the courts have given him all the responsibilities of a parent, and he is not ready to be a parent. These two different views of the situation create all the stresses between these two characters.
