Scout, the main character, was talking with Miss Maudie about Atticus's past and his hunting, Miss Maudie said Atticus was a very big Hunter and then he just stopped hunting. Scout was curious and said “wonder why he never goes huntin’ now….. if your father’s anything, he’s civilized in his heart” (Lee 130). Atticus used to be racist but something changed him potentially. Now he is against it.
a shot sounded in the distance... ”(Steinbeck 48-49). Although he was upset he was not the one who did it, he understood it was important to move past the loss of his dog. It was time for his dog to pass away already and he had to put his emotions aside and let them end his misery. Another example of the characters having to get through the loss of a pet is when Slim had to kill off some of his dogs because he didn’t have
Carlson had initiated a conversation on Candy 's dog reeking in the ranch house and a final decision was made to shoot the dog and put its misery to an end. Candy 's ego is pragmatic which led him to let the guys shoot his dog but it was clear of the pain he was going through with the loss he had occurred. Candy had depended on his dog for friendship since he was a young boy and throughout time, he had not realized that he depended on the dog for his own sense of security. Unable to handle the absence of his best friend, Candy moved to George and Lennie for companionship, " 'Tell you what...S 'pose I went in with you guys.
Curley’s wife has a need for attention, so she flirts with all the guys on the ranch. Because she is self-obsessed, she is unable to see any faults in herself and doesn’t see any harm in flirting with the other men.
The characters in Of Mice and Men all have original and unique characteristics inside of them, but no matter how different, they all have the same reactions of giving up when thinking about dreams. The main characters George and Lennie, recently unemployed migrant workers, move to a new ranch for work. Thrown into a cruel, misshapen life that doesn’t end well for the majority of characters, George and Lennie find themselves in a dilemma that seems all too familiar. John Steinbeck uses the characters in Of Mice and Men to show that dreams are fragile and they need friends to support them.
Of Mice And Man Have you ever notice how lonely people are in the world. For example, rich people with so much money they have no one to share it with. Also such the people in our story such as Curley’s wife, Candy, and Crooks. The the best thing you should always remember is that you worst day is someone best day. First, Curley’s wife is lonely because she could actually be something if she did not marry Curley.
She woos the doctor into wanting her, seemingly without knowing this, and he becomes deeply infatuated with her till the point that they are together at the end of the musical. Also, the scene where Elizabeth Benning and The Monster are romantic after Elizabeth protests against it and she ends up madly in love, is so unreal that the audience must love it. What I find to be the most mind boggling part of this bit is simple. Here we have this woman raped by this man and she falls in love with her rapist.
This example suggests that he has done the same thing his whole life and has now decided to try something new. With the guys so willing to shoot his dog because he was old, Candy fears they would do the same thing to him. On page 45, Carlson says “I wisht somebody’d shoot me if I got old an’ a cripple.” This quote shows us that Carlson believes people are only good to an extent, and Candy fears he has come to that extent. In this book, Candy and his dog foreshadow the ending, as the characters prove to us that the dog is weighing down
George knew that he had to kill Lennie himself. The facts that Curley would have killed Lennie if George didn’t, Lennie’s disability was only a burden, and George had to look out for himself all prove that George was not wrong in euthanizing Lennie. These three reasons justify the actions that George had to take. George was not wrong in killing Lennie in the way that George had only good motives and was only looking out for
Or how about the old man on the farm? Candy, the American dream can’t work for a old and injured man. Candy had lost his hand while working, he didn 't have a wife, he only had his very old dog, which in the book was used as a metaphor. “You seen what they did to my dog tonight? They says he wasn 't
Another way to support this claim is that when Candy said “‘I aughtta of shot that dog myself, George. I shouldn’t oughtta of let no stranger shoot my dog.’” (Steinbeck, 61). George was putting the connection of Candy 's dog being Lennie and he did not want a stranger that barely knew Lennie kill
This broke Candy’s heart, along with any of his spirit he had left. Candy was the only old person on the farm, besides his dog. Now that is dog was gone, Candy was totally isolated. Nonetheless, Candy was given some hope by George and Lennie, who told Candy he could be part of their farm. Candy was interacting and getting along with these two men, and had a flame reignited in his life and willpower.
