It has even gone so far that George has a plan if Lennie messes up again or makes another mistake, repeating to Lennie multiple times saying, "Lennie—if you jus' happen to get in trouble like you always done before, I want you to come right here an' hide in the brush" (Steinbeck 15). George’s stress and pressure he puts on himself and the anger and ferocity he has inside has turned George into a
Rather, they both use each other exclusively for their own personal gain (Bender 132). George, her brother’s best friend, serves as a direct contrast to Rose’s relationship with Eddie; her relationship with George is all emotions and very little physical contact. When all the children are little, George is the first to respond to Rose’s claims that she can taste feelings. He takes her seriously and after the borderline neglect that she has experienced from her parents, any attention from him is life-altering (Bender 20). As they grow older, Rose turns to George for advice and help, especially after Joseph begins acting strangely.
George grew up as a Berliner, but it wasn’t until 1938 that George and his family had troubles with Nazi’s. In 1933, George was standing with his father under the Brandenburg Gate where there was a victory parade for the Nazi party. They had music, drumming and marching. George’s dad stared crying. When George saw his father crying he asked his father, “why are you crying?” His dad replied, “this is the end of Germany, and this is the end of us Jews.” When George herd this he didn’t know what he meant, and his father said “in the future you will understand.” Later on in school, the situation tightened up more and more.
You’ve got to take me for a man or let me alone. That’s how it is”(187). Through these events, George is seen quickly forming into a grotesque. The second awakening happens shortly after when Belle’s boyfriend, Ed Handby, catches Belle and George in a field together and proceeds to grab Belle and fling George away as if he were nothing. This action not only sobered George up, but it also deflated his self esteem.
Ender also has so much empathy that he would think like the buggers, and could understand and anticipate them. This was one of the reasons why he was the perfect choice to be the commander. He also had a tremendous amount of guilt after (unknowingly) killing all the buggers and the pilots he and the squad leaders had controlled. This guilt would only be resolved when Ender finds a purpose as Speaker for the Dead and finding a safe place for the egg to
She continues this conversation and ends up crying, wanting to get rid of Gregor to end this suffering that they have been enduring for way too long. Her outburst shows that she has completely changed in the treatment towards Gregor, and this was the tipping point of Grete’s sympathy and caring of him. In the beginning, she treated him like her brother, but now she treats him like a bug that needs to be gotten rid of. When she finds out that Gregor has passed, it is apparent she is happy to move on with life. She throws out the boarders of the apartment and writes a letter to her employer for a day off.
His Innocence just makes him more of a likeable character. He acts just like a child in this passage the most. You see it by his reaction with the mouse, and the ketchup on the beans and finally the tending of the rabbits on the farm. He also thinks about George in a very loving way; just as if he was George’s brother. This will make Lennie a very likeable character towards the readers.
As Gabriel is expressing terms of endearment towards Roy, we can see how he reacts towards John and Elizabeth with disdain and hatred. The tension between the characters is obvious. Elizabeth finally establishes her dominance as Gabriel tries to blame John. I felt extremely bad for John because the only thing he didn’t do in his situation was speak up. He had absolutely nothing to do with Roy getting hurt.
George has a great amount of guilt for the times he treated Lennie badly in the beginning of their friendship. He shares that in one instance he told Lennie to jump into a lake because he wanted to make fun of him, obviously without knowing that he was going to drown, and when he got him out “he was so damn nice to [him] for pulling’ him out”(Steinbeck 62). Even though George did a horrible thing, Lennie still thanked him for saving his life. This made George feel a tremendous amount of guilt and never again did he make fun or use Lennie to get a good laugh. Instead now, they say that “Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the
