Storyboard Text

  • The theme of The Monsters are Due on Maple Street is mankind is its own worst enemy, meaning that all the external dangers that people face are nothing compared to the pain, harm, death, and destruction that one person can do to another. I chose this theme because in the story at first the neighbors were calm and friendly to each other, then after some events that caused fear and suspicion to rise, good friends turned on each other. "You best watch who you're seen with Steve! Until we get this straightened out, you ain't exactly above suspicion yourself." This quote shows that Charlie was quick to accuse Steve, and didn't analyze the situation. Another quote that supports my theme is said by Charlie. "No more talk, Steve. You're going to talk us into a grave! You'd let whatever's out there walk all over us , wouldn't yuh? Well some of us won't." This quote shows that Charlie was trying to protect himself, killing a man in the process. Another quote from the story suggests my theme. "A gag? A gag? Charlie, there's a dead man on the sidewalk and you killed him! Does this look like a gag to you?" This quote shows that Charlie's fear clouded his judgment and he did something he didn't mean to, but would pay for later. In conclusion, mankind is your own worst enemy because people do things they know they will regret out of fear, and in the world we live in, there is a lot of fear.
