In the second paragraph on pg 554, the brother says, “He became real to me again.” He’s basically saying that Sonny didn’t really exist to him anymore, until he read about him getting arrested in the article.

When he talked to the past friend of Sonny’s, that’s where he starts to see what’s been going on with his brother, because of the things this guy is told him.

And he feels grief and despair "the smell and sense just a little of fear because mostly of despair and grief" (226, 1). The author uses the term despair a number of times.

In the story “the monsters are due on maple street” it is ironic because, the residents wait throughout the entire story for the “monsters” to show up. When in fact the “monsters” are already there. There are many examples of ‘monstrous behavior throughout the entire story At the beginning of the story the residents are calm and friendly with each other.
