In Chapter fourteen of “Blood Meridian” by Cormac McCarthy, it ends up being ridiculously crazy how they’ve changed their acts, it’s nothing new or different to them though, as they’ve just made it their regular way. The Judge and Bathcat buy two little puppies from a little boy, they didn’t plan to keep them though. They of course had to take the puppies lives for fun. The Judge threw them into the river for Bathcat to shoot dead as they were afloat. This part of the book really got to me.
“Why do you got to get killed? You ain’t so little as mice. I did not bounce you hard” (Steinbeck). This quote shows that Lennie did not know his own strength. He plays with the puppy, bounces it with his huge hands and at last he killed his puppy by accidentally.
Lennie has a mental disability that creates depth in the story. His handicap forces him to rely on George completely because he can't remember things very well. He lacks greatly in intelligence but makes up for it in his uncontrollable strength. Another aspect of Lennie is
“When someone says the name “Pit Bull”, most people either think that of a vicious dog or aware that others think of them that way”. (“The Truth behind the Pit Bull Terrier.”) Most people think that since Pit Bulls have a strong, fierce appearance they are aggressive. Seeing people be afraid of a Pit Bull is upsetting, they 're missing out on so much. There is no other breed that stirs up so much emotion. If you adopt a Pit Bull from a shelter and they are aggressive, then they were most likely abused or abandoned by their past owner.
Dr. Sayer as a nerd with a closeted ego, and though the character is too saintly for comfort, Williams does some of his most convincing screen work. For once, his addled, remote-control mind doesn 't seem inappropriate to the character he 's playing. That mind is what makes Sayer both a nervous wreck and a great scientist. Polite, even harmless, on the outside, he 's never at rest internally. Robert De Niro acting was really believable from being paralyzed and ticks of his body to recovery.
Many people love and care for their dog, but could they let someone else kill their dog?Most people would not be able to handle letting someone take the life of their dog. In the book Of Mice of Men by John Steinbeck a main character has to go through the murder of his beloved dog. His dog is old and smells, but Candy still cared for it. The killing of Candy's dog was symbolic, showed foreshadowing, and was a bit cruel. Candy's dog was a symbol of Candy in the story.
George is a small but quick guy. He had restless eyes and strong, sharp features. George is a hard working, focused, kind hearted man because following behind his every step is Lennie, who George looks after. Lennie is a very huge man who is unaware of his strength. Lennie is cognitively
In the efficient conduct of affairs nobody in the play can hold a candle to him. He easily outwits them all” (Mayo 350). Hamlet often shows off his intricate speaking abilities, but it does not impress others due to their lack of comprehension. He uses his superior brain to insult others, amuse, and express himself. Due to Hamlet's mental abilities, he often feels isolated, so his father's death affected him even more harshly.
Though we can see that the book is not a type of an allegory, and each of the character is able to represent as simply a character, there are still some ideas and things that can be gained by observing at each character as the representatives if their bigger group. Lennie’s character in the story is a symbol of the "wise fool," someone who is mentally handicapped or inferior but who can show the best and the worst to other people. His foolishness makes him always to speak honestly about the truth in the situations where others won’t and he can sometimes do tings where the normal beings are not able to do. Lennie is also the symbolic character of some people who are being treated badly and discriminated because of their mental problems. Curley’s wife’s character is a symbolic of Eve , which the female character in the ancient story brings out what is sin and death to the universe.
Ralph, from Lord of The Flies, by William Golding, struggles between doing the right thing and doing what’s wrong. After being stranded on an island with a few dozen boys, conflict quickly emerges. There is an unsaid thirst for power by the oldest two boys: Ralph and, the antagonist, Jack. When given the problem of hunger, they both go to hunt, and are faced with a wild pig. The boys decided not to slain the pig because [They knew very well why he hadn’t; because of the enormity of the knife descending and cutting into living flesh; because of the unbearable blood.
Steinbeck intended for the character the reader will feel the most sympathy for is Lennie. The mental disabilities of Lennie, included with his overwhelming strength that he can’t control, makes you feel the most sympathy for him because he’s mostly unaware of the problems he causes and doesn’t comprehend the extreme consequences for his actions. Lennie’s mindset is that of a small child, innocent and curious, never out of anger or meanness, but the fact that he’s a man with beast-like strength is what causes the trouble for Lennie. Every bad action Lennie has committed has never came from a state of anger. There was never any meanness, nor anger in his intentions.
“... and then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck”(Steinbeck 91). Lennie is a tall person, which means Curley already doesn 't like him. Killing his wife gave him a legitimate to kill Lennie, this also shows Lennie doesn 't know his strength making him very dangerous. Curley doesn 't care about his wife he just wants to butcher Lennie. Candy brought everyone to the barn, to show them Curley’s lifeless wife.
Johnny is proof that we shouldn’t fight because earlier in the book we learn that he was jumped by Socs, and since then he was always different. Later in the book we see how this really affected Johnny because he ended up killing bob, the soc who tried jumping him and ponyboy. If the socs never tried jumping then neither Bob nor Johnny would be dead. I will apply this to my life by always trying to find a better solution. We now know from reading this book that fighting may solve problems but it will create bigger ones.
Humans have always been the real monster in these situations, yet most people do not see it that way. Society sees only the worst, they will notice when pit-bulls fight with others dog’s or act aggressively towards a human; however, they never blame the owner. There are owners out there that train their dogs to protect them or be aggressively with others dog’s; thus, due to their idiotic move, society looks
