In your journals, answer the following questions:
- What does Ponyboy mean when he says, “I was supposed to be the deep one”?
- Examine Robert Frost’s poem, Nothing Gold can Stay. What do you think the poem is saying? How might this apply to the characters in the novel?
- What “other side” of Dallas is revealed in this chapter?
- What’s your own definition of a hero? Do the three boys prove themselves to be heroes, according to your definition? Explain.
