But he has no choice but to let Justine take the fall for the death of his brother because he fears being seen as a madman. Later when Victor is told by his monster that he would leave to South America if Victor makes a second creation, he agrees until he selfishly destroys the second creation. “You have destroyed the work which you began...Do you dare to break your promise?” (181).

Without challenges, the world would be a place with no improvements and a futureless world. A futureless world personifies an undignified empty world that costs people to suffer. Many characters had already faced these types of challenges especially Jacob and George, but those two had always fought hard to fight the challenges they were facing. John Steinbeck and Patrick Carman had at least compared both George and Jacob as two different characters through the book Mice and Men and Thirteen days to midnight, but they had similar challenges through their temptations and its consequences, Its Relationships that cause troubles and their bravery to save the person they love. And these challenges will be shown.
Lennie's isolation from the real world in Of Mice and Men inhibits him to perceive and comprehend his actions. Winston Smith's ability to fight and rebel against the oppression of Big Brother and tyranny makes him an outstanding character. Despite Of Mice and Men's and 1984's difference in time period, they will always be relevant in today's
In John Steinbeck’s novella Of Mice and Men, he writes about how two migrant ranch partners, George and Lennie, endure many challenges by describing how they work together to fulfill a planned dream. The dream gets cut short through a tragic event that leaves everyone asking why. Steinbeck wants his readers to understand the challenges George faced taking care of Lennie after his Aunt Clara dies. Good friends watch out for others, but great friends stick up for others. George and Lennie faced fear, found safety in each other, had a great friendship, and faced reality together throughout Steinbeck’s novella.
In the book Of Mice and Men written by John Steinbeck, he writes about two men one named Lennie and one named George having a dream, but is ruined through the troubles of Lennie 's doings. This book was written in the 1930’s talking about migrant workers and how they survived through that era. In that era all migrant workers preferably work alone, but with George and Lennie they stick together because Lennie is a more challenged person so he doesn 't know his wrong doings which causes lots of trouble for George. On page 94, one of the most significant passages is written on having a dialogue between George and Candy about how they were unable to get the farm because Lennie had ruined their chances of getting it. Steinbeck creates a motif of loneliness through the different characters he writes about, ties in different strands of the story to make one storyline, and foreshadows events to come.
John Steinbeck’s novel Of Mice and Men highlights the adventures of two best friends that stimulate modern issues such as white males dominating the world. There are many themes in the book, but one that is the most eye catching is the theme of people with differences being ostracized by society. This theme of society ostracizing different people is shown through Lennie’s disability, and Crooks’ color of skin. Lennie is a large migrant worker who is childish due to his mental disability. His best friend George, who acts like his second hand, helps him through everything in life.
Victor also allows Justine to die for the murder of his younger brother because he’s afraid of what people will think. “My tale was not one to announce publicly; it’s astounding horror would be looked upon as madness by the vulgar”(83). He’s more concerned with what will happen to him, someone who actually had something to do with William’s death, than to Justine, who is completely innocent. Lastly, the monster says he will leave Victor and his family alone if Victor makes him a female companion, but he can’t even do that. “I thought with a sensation of madness on my promise of creating another like to him, and trembling with passion, tore to pieces the thing on which I was engaged”(180).
She started screaming and this scared Lennie so he kept shaking her to get her to be quiet. Her screaming continued to scare Lennie, so his reaction was to shake her harder, until he unintentionally broke her neck. Lennie ran into the brush so he wouldn’t have to face the wrath of the guys in the ranch. Curley threatened to kill him and all of the other guys were going to try to murder him as well. George thought it was best to kill Lennie himself as they talked about the nice place they’re going to get.
Perhaps George got tired of Lennie and took his life out of anger as his job and dream of sharing a farm with Lennie became impossible, or maybe George had had enough and killed Lennie because “(…) he [Lennie] gets in trouble alla time because he’s so God damn dumb.” (OMM, 42). On the contrary, after Lennie had killed Curley’s wife George knew what Curley’s lynch mob would come for Lennie and make his death painful by “(…) shoot[ing] the guts outa that big bastard” (OMM, 96-97). George simply helped Lennie the only way he knew how, by taking his life quickly after telling him what he wanted to
When Oedipus finally discovers the truth about his past, his mother hangs herself before Oedipus could talk to her. As a result, he blinds himself with her necklace in order to punish himself for all the consequences he has lead up to this occurrence. However, before Oedipus stabs himself he states, “No more,// No more shall you look on the misery about me, // The horrors of my own doing” (Sophocles 69)! Oedipus repeats the words “No more” twice, this reinforces his negative thoughts about himself as he feels extremely ashamed of his actions and the consequences of his father 's death as well as the marriage with his mother. Through the repetition, it is clear that he is determined about his viewpoint and expresses self-destructive behaviors that inhibit Oedipus and as a result, he starts recapping the events repeatedly in his mind.
