  • Violence Drowns Out the Voice of Reason
  • I killed him!
  • Tommy did it!
  • I've seen him looking up at the stars as if he's looking for something!
  • In "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street," the theme is that violence drowns the voice of reason out. One reason to support this is that on page 83 of our textbook, when the character Charlie saw a figure approaching the crowd of residents on Maple Street, he shot at it with a gun thinking it was an alien, but it was a fellow resident of Maple Street that left the town to find out what was going on. Charlie ended someone who he once knew's life because he thought it might be an alien from the flash that took place over Maple Street earlier that day. Another representation of this theme is on page 84 when Charlie was being accused of being an alien, he pointed his finger at the 14 year old boy on Maple Street, Tommy, and accused him of being an alien.   Since there was so much tension, the rest of the residents almost believed Charlie.   The final piece of evidence to support the theme of the story is on page 75 when Woman 1  points her finger at  Les Goodman after his car started out of nowhere for being strange because he looks up at the stars in the early morning as if he's looking for something. After this accusation, lots of the  street agrees  that it must be Les, even after he justifies his action with a good reason. This puts the entire street on edge.
