The Monsters are Due on Maple Street
This storyboard does not have a description.
A man vs. man conflict happens between Charlie and the rest of the crowd. After Charlie shoots Pete Van Horn, the crowd accuses him of being the person responsible for all the events. They chase him down the street back to his house. There, they corner him and start throwing rocks at him. They shout things like "It's Charlie!" "He's the one!" This is a man vs. man conflict because it shows multiple human beings fighting each over.
A man vs. self conflict occurs throughout the story with Steve. He questions what he is doing with the crowd. He believes that the whole thing will result in failure and regrets helping the crowd. He urges them to calm down and to not be a mob. This is an example of man vs. self because it shows someone going against their motives.
A man vs. society conflict is when he crowd corners Les Goodman, Steve speaks out against it. This is going against society, which is the crowd Maple Street. Steve believes that they shouldn't go around and randomly accuse people. He thinks it will eventually tear them apart, which is proven correct. The overall story also criticizes the time period where people accused each over of being Soviet Spies with little to no evidence.
"It's Charlie! He's the one!"
"This is't going to result in anything good!" "We're going to rip each over apart."
"Well Steve, you ain't above suspicion yourself!"
"That's exactly what this is, some kind of madness!"
