The dream gets cut short through a tragic event that leaves everyone asking why. Steinbeck wants his readers to understand the challenges George faced taking care of Lennie after his Aunt Clara dies. Good friends watch out for others, but great friends stick up for others. George and Lennie faced fear, found safety in each other, had a great friendship, and faced reality together throughout Steinbeck’s novella.
In the book, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, one possible theme is “It’s important to live in the present but also dream about the future.” I have pulled five quotes that portray this theme. They all explain how both Lennie and George dream, but that Lennie is the big day dreamer. They both want to work towards living and owning their own ranches with a lot of rabbits. My first quote focuses on how George is always helping Lennie and giving him advice.
In Of Mice and Men, Lennie was intent on being good so that he could reach his goal of living on the ranch and tending the rabbits. In War Dance, the kids were striving to reach their goal of doing well in the music competition, and this made them give their all in their performance, whether on the final stage or during practices. In The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Walter Mitty wants to find the missing photo and goes on all these adventures, which he doesn’t realize he’s doing because he’s focused on the goal of getting his job back. The article “The Wills and Ways of Hope” explains that, according to a study, “High hope students… were also more likely to have graduated and were less likely to be dismissed from school due to bad grades” (1). In comparison to students with low hope, students with more hope were linked to having higher college
In John Steinbeck’s novella, Of Mice and Men, George and Lennie are a pair of men who travel together. Traveling together they give eachother a sense of comfort and hope for a brighter future. George has taken Lennie under his wing and therefore Lennie depends solely on George for everything. George states that Lennie and him are never lonely in this : “But not us’!
Selfishness vs. Selflessness The words selfish and selfless are two completely different words with two completely different meanings, yet they get confused quite often. In “Of Mice and Men,” some readers may envision the character George as selfish or harsh towards Lennie, however, Steinbeck portrays George as selfless. George and Lennie find themselves in penurious situations very often. This is burdensome for George considering Lennie’s mental disability, and it should be expected that George will become infuriated with him at times.
In the novel Of Mice & Men, by John Steinbeck, Lennie and George’s relationship is not the most quintessential friendship. Though in the first part of the story it is not said that Lennie has any social disabilities, you can pick up the characteristic. George has a way with words, which affects Lennieーbut only within that moment. Steinbeck portrays both these characters very vividly; although he does not just flat out make a list describing each man, he shows each personality and relationship they hold.
