As a result of this event, George and Lennie had to go on the run because this woman assumed that Lennie was going to rape her when he grabbed onto her dress. After this event, George and Lennie were stuck with each other and whatever problems Lennie had George now had. Furthermore, George has been with Lennie a long time, and he has learned many things about himself and Lennie. “ …One day a bunch of guys was standin’ around up on the Sacramento River. I was feelin’ pretty smart.
It is evident that George’s actions and words towards Lennie are selfless or caring represented by Lennie’s mental disability, his troublesome behavior, the life George could have without him, and why George kills him. It seems like George and Lennie are always on the run. George and Lennie state, “An’ you ain’t gonna do no bad
Within the novel it states, “Tell about what we're gonna have in the garden and about the rabbits in the cages and about the rain in the winter and the stove, and how thick the cream is on the milk like you can hardly cut it” (Steinbeck 15). This quote shows that Lennie is causing distraught to George, leaving him to potentially ruin their future. Also, George took in Lennie when Lennie’s Aunt left him to George, so George trusted Lennie to not cause trouble to his passion. Something distinct to an individual, a personality trait, is shown in Lennie as his behavior results in him making unwilling choices towards others. George shooting Lennie in the back of the head was a good choice, as he was causing to much harm to George, as George has to watch over him.
Just because he was George’s best friend did not give him any reason to shoot him. Lennie is a person that is childish, a little slow, and irresponsible adult. George is his caretaker that is responsible, caring, and a wiry person.
Without a doubt, Lennie’s unquestionable loyalty to George has its repercussions. Late in the book, Lennie is forced to flee after he kills Curley’s wife, and runs to the banks that George told him to go to if he ever got in trouble. George finds him lying there and pretends everything is alright. George says to Lennie, “‘No, Lennie. Look down there acrost the river, like you can almost see the place.’...
This relates back to naturalism, because Lennie gets himself into a situation that he cannot control. He does not understand that he has to be very careful with the puppy because it is so small, and he does not know his own strength. “What is clear is that Lennie’s body wins out over his mind repeatedly,- in the end with tragic consequences”(Keener 1215). Lennie is very kind- hearted, and never wants to hurt anyone. This quote explains that Lennie’s strength wins over his intentions.
Also, Lennie was the nicest ,and sweetest person you would ever meet he didn’t ever want or mean to hurt anyone. Although many people may say that he needs to pay for what he has done, these people did not take into account that Lennie is a slower than a grown male should be. Another topic that will be discussed
He life has so far been trying to keep a steady job while caring and looking after Lennie, who easily gets them kicked out of almost every place they go to. “An’ you ain’t gonna do no bad things like you done in Weed, neither,”(Steinbeck 8). George honestly knew he would be better off without Lennie. But because of Lennie’s aunt, he would keep him safe even if a town was after him. Multiple times he has saved Lennie from others who misinterpreted him for a fool or a creep, when really they acted on impulse than understand the situation at
However, George was completely justified in murdering Lennie as he had no other choice if he wanted what’s best for his friend and the world at large. Despite his inability to understand what he does, Lennie still possessed a threat to society. Lennie was woefully unaware of the damage he caused and his ability to
“if George sees me talkin’ to you he’ll give me hell” (87). Lennie doesn’t understand that some of his actions are morally wrong. When George gets upset, Lennie becomes increasingly hard on himself, which causes more damage.
The American Dream is the ideology that every United States citizen has the equal opportunity to achieve their own set goals, if they are willing to put in the hard work and determination to do so. Throughout John Mellencamp’s music career, he is known for interpreting the American Dream within the narrative style of his songs. In the song “Little Pink Houses” by John Mellencamp, which was released in 1983, was no exception towards his normality. Mellencamp emphasizes his viewpoints towards what it means to obtain and achieve the American Dream in the modern day society. John Mellencamp suggests that not everyone is able to achieve the American Dream because only some can achieve it, but most others are unable throughout the lyrics.
Although George sometimes abuses Lennie’s blind loyalty, they think of each other as family and establish that they will always be there for each other. For example, George and Lennie share a dream in which they own a farm and live off of the land and look out for each other as a family. Faced with many hardships, George and Lennie maintain a strong bond. This example of unbreakable friendship and loyalty shows that no matter how different two people are, they are able to create inseparable relations and become true friend even when faced with
George and Lennie travel everywhere together, and depend on each other in times of need. In fact, George likes traveling with Lennie to an extent, “I want you to stay with me, Lennie”(Steinbeck 13). Unlike other farmhands, George and Lennie share a special bond, “‘because I got you
[Lennie] jes’ like a kid” (page 43). Lennie being compared to children and called nice by an all-knowing character can help the reader understand he is innocent in the beginning of the story. His “dream ranch” can also be compared to the paradise of the
