Effect On Others
This shows that Dallas changed because when he did those things a girl reacted mad and told him to shut his trap and then he did and normally he would do something bad if someone talked bad to him.
"He put his feet up on the back of the redhead's chair, winked at me, and beat his record for saying something dirty. She turned around and gave him the cold stare. "Take your feet off my chair and shut your trap." (Page 21)
This reveals that he is dangerous because he got arrested at the age of ten.
This shows that Dallas changed because he used to go to jail and said he had a bad record in New York but now he doesn't have a bad record with where he lives now.
"Dally had spent three years on the wild side of New York and had been arrested at the age of ten." (Page 10)
This reveals that he is deadly because of his sharp animal teeth and his ears are like a lynx.
"He had an elfish face, with high cheekbones and a pointed chin, small sharp animal teeth, and ears like a lynx. His hair was almost white it was so blond." (Page 10)
This shows Dallas changed because he has teeth and ears that make him look deadly but in the end he wasn't and he only used knives and not guns.
The book I'm doing is called "The Ousiders" and the character I am analyzing is Dallas Winston. The character Dallas Winston was tough and silly and mean at the start of the book. But then at the end, he became more sad and weak and he wanted to die so he pulled a knife so the cops would shoot him. The methods the author used to show this is through his speech, thoughts, effects on others, actions, and looks. He changed through the book because of what he said to Ponyboy in the book told us that he worried about Ponyboy but at the start of the book he didn't seem worried about anyone and just mostly cared for himself. Also he changed through his actions like he does't go to jail in the movie and he is more good than bad back then when e was in New York.
