In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, legality is often deemed less important than morality in terms of decision making. Multiple characters throughout the novel disregard the law in order to carry out their vision of justice. When Curley, the son of the ranch owner, discovers his wife’s body, he is furious. So furious that he plans to track Lennie, a new employee with an intellectual disability, down and murder him to get revenge for his mistake. Regardless of the law, Curley’s morals based on vengeance and masculinity drive him to kill Lennie.
I think this isn’t because, the ghost of the king said, “Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature” is meaning he did some bad stuff when he was alive that he is not proud of (DOC.A). Also in the Treatment of Gertrude, hamlet accidently killed Polonius thinking it was the king spying on them in front of Gertrude, before Polonius dies he says “O, I am slain!”. Right after that Hamlet told his mother, Gertrude, that the new king killed his father, she didn’t believe and told him to be quiet that she couldn’t handle it. After that happened Hamlet sees the ghost of the king again, saying that “To speak to her, hamlet” (doc.
The killings in the novella “Of Mice and Men,” show that murder and death will come back to haunt people. The first killing is when Carlson kills Candy’s dog. He says that the dog is just suffering and it is also really smelly. This is why Carlson made the decision to shoot Candy’s dog, even though Candy doesn’t want Carlson to shoot his dog. The second killing was when Lennie killed his puppy.
Her madness stemmed from Hamlet’s killing of her father, and Hamlet’s madness came from the death of his father. When Ophelia found out about Polonius’s death, she sang, “He is dead and gone, lady, He is dead and gone, At his head a grass-green turf, At his heels a stone. Oh, ho!” (Hamlet 4.5.25-26). Ophelia’s insane tune convinced the King and Queen that she was mad.
Othello let his anger get in the way of his rational thinking causing him to make a bad decision that lead to his downfall. He also sentenced Desdemona to her death when he said, “Aye, let her rot, and perish, and be damned tonight, for she/ shall not live” (Oth. 4.1.169-170). Othello was outraged when he heard about the affair that he made rash decisions. Othello wanted to kill Desdemona for breaking his heart.
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
Just one of these traumatic events could make a character go mad, but the combination of the three justifies Ophelia’s madness. The use of these three tragic events in Ophelia’s life makes her madness reasonable. The first event to happen that changes Ophelia’s demeanor is her relationship problems with her boyfriend, Hamlet. In Act III, Scene I of the play, Ophelia says to Hamlet “My lord, I have remembrances of yours, That I have longed long
1.-(A)The novel “Of Mice and Men” is a tragedy because it is about a basically good person,Lennie,who suffers a fall brought about by something in his nature therefore provoking emotions of pity and fear to the reader. Lennie is a basically good person because his actions didn’t had any cruel or evil intentions. For instance, on page 9 and 10, when Lennie and George are talking, George tells Lennie that he always kills mice and he answers “I´d pet´em,and pretty soon they bit my fingers and I pinched their heads a little and then he was dead—because they was so little.” He was a really innocent person, however his nature and actions got him in a lot of problems.
In the book of “Mice of Men” by John Steinbeck, it was evident from the start that Lennie could not possibly function in the harsh society that they lived in without George by his side to care for him. In the ending of the book, George ended up killing his best friend Lennie because of three justified reasons which are that Lennie had previously shown acts of violence, he ended Curley’s wife’s life which made it impossible for Lennie to rejoin civilization , and Lennie would have suffered worse at the hand of
Instead, Romeo made the dreadful mistake of fighting Tybalt, which ultimately led to him getting banished. Romeo could have saved his and Juliet’s future, but he was so desperate that he had to kill
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
5. A theme statement for “The Cask of Amontillado” is to encourage readers that revenge doesn’t get you anywhere because after it done you’ll have a strong feeling of regret. In the short story Montressor kills his friend and it wasn’t worth it at the end of the day because he started feeling
Curley’s wife asked him to stop when he did not stop she began to scream. Lennie covered her mouth and nose with his and cause he was scared and did not want to get in trouble because she was screaming. Lennie ended up killing Curley’s wife (91). Lennie did not know his own strength so when he got scared and held on it got him in trouble. In the end George decided to kill Lennie.
In the first chapter George and Lennie had to remove themselves from a town named Weed because Lennie had caused trouble for the both of them. Lennie had an attraction to soft things, such as rabbits. In the book he reached out and grabbed a woman’s soft dress. The woman in question started screaming, as we find out later through exposition, and all he had done was hold onto her dress tighter frozen with fear and not knowing what to do. This action results in the woman screaming rape which leads up to them being run out of town by other men.
