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. For example, when he is petting dead mice throughout the book, touching the girl´s red dress and touching soft things in general, all these events lead to the final event which provokes emotions of pity and fear to the reader. 1.-(B) The novel “Of Mice and Men” is not a tragedy because the protagonists weren’t important people to society.

Throughout both Ender’s Game and Divergent, the protagonists encounter several authority figures. These authority figures help to guide the protagonists and even shape them as people in society. However, some of these authorities abuse their power to hurt or otherwise negatively influence their subordinates. Often times, this negative influence stems from the authority figure’s fear or anger towards something or someone. In Ender’s Game and Divergent, this is especially clear in both Bonzo and Eric.
His own irrational decisions punishes him for himself always wanting to picking fight and arguing, but always having the urge to always win. His grudge against the Montagues. Another reason causing his death,because he never dropped the anger he had with Romeo. The capulets and Montagues were already rivals too. The last reason is was his anger issues.
Loneliness is the downfall of people with weak character of all ages and genders. In the novella, Of Mice and Men, the quest for a cure to the desolate life is represented by Crooks’ struggle with relationships and the demise of Curley’s wife. Crooks defensive manner and cruel actions toward Lennie, the only person attempting to befriend him, conflict with his aspiration for friendship. Curley’s wife’s behavior differs in that she attempts to draw people into her life even when it’s not reciprocated. The timeless theme of this story applies today to anyone who uses others to make themselves feel wanted.
During those times, anybody with even a slight hint of a weakness was a victim to prejudice. Candy, Crooks; Curley’s wife. That fact that you were old, disabled, black or even just a woman was your ‘weakness’. It started a long path of hate, lies, deceit and sadness. But in some points in the novella, Steinbeck twists aspects of the Great Depression, and morphs them into similar yet impactful versions of his own.
The promise from Curley “I’m gonna shoot the guts outta that big bastard myself” suggests we may see Lennie’s demise at the hands of Curley. Curley and Lennie do fight earlier in the book, but it doesn’t really have a proper resolution and it seems like there is more to follow. Curley shows hate to Lennie from their first meeting beginning with “Lennie squirming [squirmed] under his [the] look and shifting [shifted] his feet nervously. Curley stepped gingerly close to him.” This displays the immediate rivalry between Lennie and Curley, because Curley first singles out and confronts Lennie for seaming weak. The novella seemed quite ready to wrap this conflict up in the climax with Lennie being shot or killed some other way by Curley, but Steinbeck chooses a different route.
Lennie Small is a rather large and mentally disabled man. His mental disability is what ultimately kills him in the end, as he has no control over his immense strength. This is shown through the many mice that he had killed, which is proven during Lennie and George’s conversation about mice. Lennie talked about his Aunt Clara, his mother figure in a sense, and how she always used to give him mice. George proceeded to tell Lennie “An’ she stopped givem ‘em to ya.
In most cases if a child is looking up to someone who lives his or her life unethically, in one way or the other, that child will draw something from that person. Also in Armstrong’s case, for him to come clean would cost the lives of the young ones who are very fond of him. But to fight and still lie as well does him no good, since even his the board of sports have identified his fault. Already his reputation is
Her agonizing fall climaxes as Mrs. Hale realizes that “She was going to bury it (the canary) in that pretty box” (Glaspell 16), uncovering a motive for the killing of her husband. The respective protagonists were also driven into madness by their husbands and a lack of support from their friends. With the narrator of “The Yellow Wallpaper,” her husband as well as her husband’s sister were simply ignorant to her pleas for help. Minnie Wright, on the other hand, suffered from a mentally and physically abusive relationship and a lack of support from any friends at all. Despite the commonplace of men in powerful positions in each story, they are both considered feminist works as women are given a larger role and have better ideas than
I agree with Trudeau’s ideals of how national relationships should operate. In my view, it’s because some don’t prioritize interaction and being open with each other that our current society is plagued by a discriminative feature: stereotypes. The problem affects both our government and social society. Because of stereotypes, there are certain aspects expected from a person because of their race, beliefs, and/or culture. Stereotypes are widely known and are hard to get rid of since, some choose to be ignorant in learning the various types of people we will come to communicate with; their lack of knowledge would force them to use the information available to them, which are stereotypes.
