One way Lennie is described as is innocent. His one goal is tending the rabbits at a farm one day. He likes to pet soft things and sometimes does bad things but doesn’t realize they are wrong.

(62) This shows how much Phineas values his friendship with Gene, as he is willing to go to extreme extents to preserve it. However, Phineas' inability to admit the truth ultimately brought his own death.

Here it must be Hamlet’s trick to continue with his task of avenging his uncle Claudius. Why Should Hamlet Assume Madness? Here a question arises finally, why should Hamlet assume madness, first of all before the very girl whom he loved from the core of his heart?
