Conflicts in the Outsiders
This storyboard does not have a description.
Man vs. Nature- This picture depicts Sodapop and Ponyboy going to see Mickey Mouse the horse. Mickey Mouse is described as a ill-tempered, ornery young horse. He kicks other horses and even nips people.
Man vs. Man- This shows the event of when Johnny and Ponyboy were jumped by Randy and Bob, the drunken Socs. Johnny had to kill Bob, for Johnny was scared they were going to beat him up and kill Ponyboy. This is a good, literal example because the two Greasers and two Socs are fighting each other.
Man vs. Fate- This shows Ponyboy and Johnny going into the burning church to save the children that are stuck inside. This is a good example of Man vs. Fate because in their situation, Johnny and Ponyboy had to be heroes and save the children, for they felt they had no choice but to do so and anyone in that position would do that as well.
Man vs. Self- In this picture, Ponyboy is walking around, dazed from Johnny dying. He has been hurt in the rumble when the Soc kicked him the head. This is a good example for this conflict because Ponyboy is fighting against the fact that Johnny is dead and making himself believe Johnny is alive when he isn't.
Johnny isn't dead. He can't be. He must be asleep at the lot or sitting on the church steps, waiting for me. He just can't be dead.
Man vs. Society- Dally is stealing from the grocery store in this depiction. Stealing is against the laws of society so Dally is going against society by committing a crime.
Man vs. Technology- This depicts Dally getting shot and killed under a street light. When Johnny dies in the hospital, Dally becomes unstable and steals from a grocery store. He calls the other Greasers and he tells them the polices are after him. The other Greasers rush to the lot to meet him. He takes out his gun as a bluff and the police shoot him and Dally crumples under the street light. This is a good example of Man vs. Technology because the gun which is the machine/technology kills Dally.
