The Outcasts of Poker Flat In the Outcasts of Poker Flat there are many themes that directly relate to themes in The Ministers Black Veil The two authors though they had different styles and were writing about different traditions related themes such as how we judge other people before we actually know them how in times of need people make sacrifices and how all is revealed at judgment In The Outcasts of Poker Flat all of the outcasts are judged based on their occupations or interests The town decided to rid the town of all improper persons Therefore the group of outcasts was forced to leave The outcasts were actually good people Though they werent the most saintly they were most likely still better than some of the people that were not forced to leave For example Jim Oakhurst the gambler was forced to leave town because of the large sums of money he had taken from people gambling It turns out one of the people they ended up getting snowed in with Tom Simson was one of the people he had previously gambled against Mr Oakhurst easily beat Tom because he was a bad gambler Misjudged Oakhurst was really a good-hearted man He gave back the fortune that he had won from Simson and advised him to never gamble again If the secret committee in Poker Flat had heard this story the most likely would have reconsidered before making forcing him to leave and never return Another example of this is when Tom and Piney gather with the outcasts They had no clue that the group had been forced to leave Poker Flat because of their occupations and interests but that didnt bother them from camping with them This shows that the outcasts were judged by a group of people in Poker Flat that had no clue about their real personalities Another theme closely related in both stories is rising to the occasion
