George often gets heatedly angry at Lennie for petting mice, because he often causes
Lamb To The Slaughter In the short story, Lamb To The Slaughter by Roald Dahi, a frozen leg of lamb becomes a deadly weapon. A wife contently waits for her husband to come home. He arrives and the longer he is there the more the mood shifts and goes from calm to uneasy as he is blunt and rude to his pregnant wife, Mary.

The end of the story consist of the wife covering her crime.
Doing such act meant for him to go exile for seven years because that was a murder of one of his clans and that angered the goddess, the clan members did not want to pay for what okonkwo did so they send him far away so his punishment would be outside and not in his own village and they even burned his house and his belongings to burn everything that might of been contaminated with his wrongdoing. During his exile he is received by his mother’s younger brother, Uchendu. Uchendu receives them with opened hands and supplies Okonkwo 's family with supplies that he needs to grow crops and food. While in exile he assisted the wedding from one the uncle’s sons and at the end he was questioned by his uncle in a way that he did not know what to respond which was basically what Uchendu wanted to see, Okonkwo was left thinking about it but Uchendu got back to the
We burned a symbol to the ground.” (Lockhart 152) The significance of this quote is how the house is filled with expensive things that will eventually tear the Sinclair family apart if they keep fighting. They care more about money and their inheritance than each other and the qualities of family. Cadence feels regret from not only ruining her grandad’s house, killing her friends, and making her family grieve; but also for killing the two innocent dogs that got trapped in the fire. Cadence was close to these dogs and cried at the thought of how much they suffered. “How could I have forgotten them like that?
“He’d come back late and worn out, and pretty near cross for one so sweet-tempered, not wanting to talk about it.”(lines 49-51) Toward the end of the story, it shows how the wife 's husband had left and she became very worried. As the husband was found outside the wife watched him change and form into a human. The descriptions had shown that they were wolves, but the husband became a human on full moons. The wife and her family felt threatened so they decided to fight against “it”. As the man was running away the wife’s sister attacked the
In “Lamb to the Slaughter” a man comes home and tells his wife he is going to go get a divorce, consequently this makes the wife mad and she goes and gets a frozen lamb leg and beats her husband to death with it. This short story is related to Nietzsche’s idea of revenge because the wife was mad because she was going to be a single mother and so she got back at her husband for trying to get a divorce. Although the wife wasn’t suffering yet she was going to suffer soon, so she made her husband pay for what he was going to do. If Dahl read this Nietzsche’s quote he would agree that the quote is correct because in “Lamb to the Slaughter” it represents what the quote it saying. For example, in the story he has the wife take immediate action when the husband tells her his plan which shows that Dahl thinks that if you are going to make someone suffer you should have to pay for it.
Kills curley’s wife with anger and no hesitation just like the mice and the pup. He does this but doesn 't really feel sorry for what he has done till george finds out pleading him to tend the rabbits just like a father and a child. All of this that has happened because of his mentally disability. Lennie knows she’s trouble and sees her as a threat and used the opportunity to have her to stop by showing anger and rage to intimidate curley’s wife just like a mind of a kid would do.

“... 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.
Her hair was too soft for him not to touch, and he could not let go. The boss’s wife was screaming and crying, but the only way Lennie knew how to shut her up was by killing her. “‘George is gonna say I done a bad thing. He ain’t gonna let me tend the rabbits.’ He moved his hand a little and a hoarse cry came out,” (Steinbeck 91). Lennie wanted the rabbits badly, but he unknowingly ruined any chance at his future ranch.
By accusing the men of being fearful and skeptical of one another, Curley’s wife hints upon disputes and predicaments that are to soon arise on the ranch. For instance, Lennie has a compelling desire to stroke soft things due to his mental illness. Subsequently, Lennie becomes the cause of his puppy 's death after petting it too forcefully. In an attempt comfort Lennie, Curley’s wife offers Lennie a piece of her hair for him to stroke. Following this, Lennie loses all self-control, shaking Curley’s wife and, eventually, snapping her neck.
