I think George killed Lennie because he knew it was the right thing to do. It’s obvious that Lennie has a mental illness and it makes it difficult for him to understand things. For example, when he grabbed the lady’s red dress in Weed, he didn’t realize he was doing anything wrong. He also didn’t realize that touching Curley’s wife’s hair was wrong until he accidentally murdered her. The bad things he does are unintentional, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t wrong.
He also would listen to everything that George would tell him to do. If George didn’t kill Lennie he would either have gone to jail or “‘They’ll take ya to the booby hatch. They’ll tie ya up with a collar, like a dog’”(pg72). If George didn’t kill him Lennie would have been tortured by Curley because Lennie had humiliated him and killed his wife. George also killed him because he didn’t want to regret not killing Lennie himself rather than someone else killing him that wouldn’t have cared.
‘Lennie begged, “Le 's do it now. Le 's get that place now.”’ George concurs, places the Luger on the back of Lennie’s head, and shoots him. One of the most controversial aspects of George Steinbeck 's novel Of Mice and Men, was the death of Lennie by his friend’s hands. Many believe that George murdered him in Lennie’s best interest, yet many others believe that George was being selfish and with his act, removed the burden of Lennie.
Personally i believe that Lennie was loony and didn 't know how to control himself. In addition, I know in the book Lennie butchered bijou animals uncontrollably. Also Lennie was a kind person, but when he got pissed he hurt Curley However, people might say that he didn 't know what he was doing when doing such things.
He doesn’t want to give them the only thing that makes him who his name. He doesn’t want to disgrace his family name and hurt them for generations to come. This is an example when it says in the definition “ He is then able to accept his death with honor.” In conclusion John Proctor is the perfect example of a tragic hero. He committed adultery and in a sense, ended up dying because of it.
He cared greatly about his family and wife even though Elizabeth was often distant towards him. In the end of the play, Proctor chooses to die rather than sign his confession, ratting out his friends and ruining his good name in the town. He did this to protect the reputation of his children so they won’t have to grow up with a lying father. Lying went against Protctors’ views and that ideal is prevalent throughout the entire play. It is revealed that as soon as he had an affair with Abigail, he confessed to Elizabeth the next day because of the guilt he was carrying around.
Was George justified in killing Lennie my personal opinion is gorge was wrong and it wasn't right for him to kill him or so called euthanasia lennie was his best friend who hes lived with thru thick and thin thru the rough times and the good times and they weren't just friends but one almost completed the other to where they were whole they were to me almost life partners in a weird kind of way Some causes of why George killing Lennie could be considered wright are due to lennie strangling curley's wife he was already going to jail any way therefore he wasn't going to be free anymore anyway also he hurt everything he touched for example the puppy that Carlson gave him he choked it to tight curley's hand he squeezed it so tight it almost killed
Even if that means he has to ask a stranger or a friend to finish the job for him. In the quote he claims not to be selfish, even though all he cares about is killing his creation to make himself feel better. Since these are Frankenstein 's last wishes, it foreshadows his death and makes it so he won 't be the one to kill the creature. This quote also tells us that even in his delirious state Victor is still enraged with the creature, which means that he will not die in peace, but disturbed and unfulfilled.
A primary claim on this side of the argument is that Lennie didn’t mean to do anything violent. More specifically, when Lennie hurt Curley’s hand in a fight he “ ‘didn’t wanta hurt him.’ ” (Steinbeck 64) However, another incident when Lennie hurt another person is when he killed Curley’s wife. In this scene, he “was angry with her.
The crack of the gun shook many souls who had read the book Of Mice And Men. In the book Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck, George kills Lennie towards the end of the book and there are questions on whether it was wright or not for George to kill Lennie. George was right to kill Lennie because George would end it for him quickly, George would do it compassionately instead of Curley doing it in a bad way, and it would relieve Lennie of the pain and agony he has been through due to his illness. In almost every corner in the world, murder is illegal.
The side that I am choosing is that George should have killed Lennie because Lennie can’t live by himself, he is mentally challenged, and Curley would have killed him anyway if George didn 't. Lennie is mentally challenged and he likes to talk to dead animals and other different things. He gets in trouble a lot and can 't really do anything by himself because he will always be getting in trouble if he is by himself. “Jus wanted to feel that girl’s dress-jus wanted to pet it like it was mouse(Steinbeck 11). The quote proves my reason because Lennie got both George and Lennie in trouble because he wanted to feel a girls dress. George should have killed Lennie because Lennie can 't live by himself and I believe if George didn 't kill Lennie
A reason why george should be justified is because he says if “i was alone i could live so easy” which you never say to a guy like lennie. George should be punished for killing lennie because if george never killed lennie they could of had their dream come true. and he should also be punished because he was rude to lennie. “Funny said
George kills Lennie also because he doesn 't want to be on the run like he has most of the time been. So Lennie is stressing on George 's life but George feels to guilty to have him run, because he couldn 't live on his own. So George has to kill Lennie because he has no other choice for Lennie 's future. This was the best choice for Lennie in George 's mind. He also thinks this world is too cruel for
In the novel, Of Mice and Men, George was justified in killing Lennie because of his mental illness. Without George killing Lennie , he could have been tortured and killed brutally, but instead, George filled his mind with happy thoughts and ended it without any pain. Death is a debatable topic, yet this decision was for the better interest of his best friend,
When Lennie was going crazy and thinks he sees his Aunt clara “I tried, Aunt Clara, ma’am. I tried and tried.” Lennie was like a sick dog a dog that has gone blind he did not know if what he is seeing is real or not. George saw that and George did not want Lennie to suffer he just wanted to put him out of his misery. I understand that George and Lennie might have been able to make it out and that what George did was wrong each time you kill a person it is wrong.
