The Monsters are due on Maple Street Theme: Accusing can lead to violence
In the story The Monsters are due on maple street, I think that my theme plays a big part on what is going on in the story. Close to the beginning of the story, when Les Goodman's car starts up, people are already pointing there fingers at Les just because his car started up. This shows that each character is trying to find someone to accuse of being an "alien". Each person doesn't want everyone to think that it's them that is the "alien". All of this led to violence, like when Charlie thought Pete Van Horn was the Monster. Readers learn that it wasn't the "aliens" that were the monsters, it was the people of Maple Street who were the real monsters.
In this scene, Charlie thinks Pete Van Horn is the Monster, so he shoots him.
In this scene, Everyone accuses Charlie and the group of people chase him. Someone throws a rock and cuts his head.
