Literary Concepts in The Outsiders
Foreshadowing (5) = “And Johnny, who was the most law-abiding of us, now carried in his back pocket a six-inch switchblade. He’d use it, too, if he ever got jumped again. They had scared him that much. He would kill the next person who jumped him.” “If that old church ever caught fire, there’d be no stopping it.” Ponyboy and Johnny run off to the park to “cool off” after Darry hits Ponyboy. Pony infers Dally has “broke” and reached his “breaking point.” “I been carryin’ around a heater. It ain’t loaded, but it sure does help in a bluff.” It is inevitable that Johnny will kill someone

Tone (5) = “Stay gold Ponyboy…Stay gold.” “Greasers will still be greasers and Socs will still be Socs. Sometimes I think it’s the ones in the middle that are really the lucky ones.” “We couldn’t get along without him. We needed Johnny as much as he needed the gang. And for the same reason.” “It’s okay… We aren’t in the same class. Just don’t forget that some of us watch the sunset too.” “Please, not him…not him and Johnny both – I knew he would be dead, because Dally Winston wanted to be dead and he always got what he wanted.” I infer the tone is because.

Irony (6) = the opposite of literal/meaning Situational = Scenarios Verbal = Sarcasm Dramatic = secret Examples of Irony IRONY! Situational Irony? Verbal Irony? Dramatic Irony? Ponyboy knows Randy is going to skip the rumble. “You, punk. This is what you get for helping those kids, you little punk,” Dally says to Johnny on his deathbed after passing away. Cherry likes and/or loves Dally despite her being a Soc and him being a Greaser. “You could use a bath, greaser. And a good working over. And we've got all night to do it. Give the kid a bath David.” Dally rides the ponies fairly. He will not cheat when he races. The cops think Ponyboy and Johnny ran off to Texas. Type of Irony & Why It is dramatic irony because Pony and the reader are the only ones to know.
