Serious events can cause change in a person's life. S.E. Hinton's novel The Outsiders tells a story about a teenage boy, Ponyboy, that lives with his brothers, Darry and Sodapop.

S.E. Hinton’s realistic fiction novel, The Outsiders, takes place in Tulsa, Oklahoma-where social divisions is the cause of all their problems. Ponyboy, a Greaser, lives in a society where you’re either socially accepted or not. He isn’t as privileged or lucky as the Socs and isn’t socially accepted. Ponyboy and his gang have to endure rude treatment, beatings, and being outcasted. One lesson the story suggests is to stay gold. While some readers believe this means to be who you are and not let others hurt you, I argue that this means to preserve your childhood innocence and not grow up to become a mature, cranky old man, but stay pure and innocent. This is indicated by Hinton’s use of characterization, dialogue, and conflict.

The Outsiders movie which was released on March 25, 1983, is a American drama film directed by Francis Ford Coppola .It is a crime thriller and is adapted from a novel of the same name by S.E. Hinton .The Film was shot on location in Tulsa, Oklahoma and set in 1965 .The story of this movie revolves around the conflict between the two different social groups ,which is the rich and the poor. It is a class versus class conflict which gives rise to a physical conflict between the Greasers and the Socs .I feel there are physical fights throughout the story between the two groups due to enculturation. The native culture that is transmitted from one generation to another among the Greasers is the reason for their limitations.
