  • One of the main themes of The Monsters are Due on Maple Street by Rod Serling is trying to find a scapegoat can lead to violence. The first text evidence is on page 678 when Charlie said "No more talk, Steve. You're going to talk us into a grave..." then shoots the dark figure, Pete Van Horn. This quote supports my theme because it shows that people are dealing with their fear and oblivion through violence, they will shoot anything in their path to try to stop the problem. The second piece of text evidence is on page 680 when Charlie is on his porch and a rock is thrown and hits a window next to him, and the glass cuts his face. This evidence supports my theme because all the residents of Maple Street started to blame Charlie, and threw rocks at him, which resulted in Charlie getting injured. The third piece of evidence that demonstrates the theme I choose was on page 683 when "people shout, accuse, and scream as the lights in every house flash on and off." This supports my theme because everybody is yelling and screaming at each other just because they need someone to blame for all of the issues that are occurring. In conclusion, those are the three reasons I believe trying to find a scapegoat can lead to violence is the theme of The Monsters are Due on Maple Street.
