Friendship is the divine feeling or relationship of care for one another. A friend is there to boost yourself confidence they stand by us confidently making us believe in ourselves. Friends are there to listen to the nonsense happening in our life and are understanding. In the novel Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck it talks and shows the meaning of friendship and how it's important in our life and in the book.
Codependent relationships are unhealthy one-sided relationships, George and Lennie exemplify this due to Lennie’s reliance on George; while Curley and his wife exemplify a counter-dependent relationship due to their avoidance of love and sentimental attachment. The imbalance in affection and effort between these two pairs leads to their untimely end, Lennie being too attached, and neither Curley or his wife being attached enough. Due to Lennie’s disability, he leans on George to help him with a variety of simple tasks the readers are led to believe he cannot complete on his own. This leads to an unhealthy attachment to George as Lennie believes he cannot function without him. This is apparent from the beginning of the book in this quote, “[Lennie] said gently, "George… I ain’t got mine.
When his Aunt Clara died, Lennie just come along with me out workin'. Got kinda used to each other after a little while’" (Steinbeck 40). The background information that Steinbeck gives the reader summarizes the origin of George and Lennie’s relationship. It of course, hints as to why they are inseparable.
Steinbeck’s presentation of Curley’s wife leads to a misconception of her personality and dehumanizes her character. While lacking a name, Curley’s wife exhibits “a deep strong and eventually weak side” (Taja 2). By not using her real name, Steinbeck demonstrates the lack of respect that she receives at the ranch by the men. Depriving her of even human identification, the characters treat her as if she is not a person that they can interact with, rather a danger of losing their jobs that they carefully and strategically avoid. Her roundness of character not only demonstrates her soft side but also exhibits the way the men treat her in an inhumane way, even using prostitutes’ names over
For this term paper, I have chosen the topics ‘friendship’ and ‘conflict’ as the main themes for my area of study. Everyone has friends. Indeed, according to the Sociogram, our friends can be divided into various categories. Some we talk to everyday yet are not close friends. Some we could go days or even weeks without talking or seeing each other, yet we treasure them the most.
Think I like to stick in that house alla time?” (Steinbeck 77). Curley’s wife expresses her need of speaking to others; she is tired of staying in the house all the time and having no one to talk to but Curley, whom she openly despises The way the men describe her, as a whore, only adds to her loneliness and depression. It brings her to the point in which she angrily cries out at Lennie,
Both stories have common situations about the mothers portrayed in the stories. In both stories, the main characters had to deal with abandonment in some form. As seen in the story “I Stand Here Ironing”, the narrator’s husband left and caused her to play both roles of being a mother and a father to her children. Therefore, the relationship between her and her daughter isn’t as strong as it should be and the narrator feels guilty about it. The main character in “The Yellow Wallpaper” blames her husband for her depression.
Curley’s wife is lonely and isolated because she doesn’t care for her husband and she knows she could have done better. Everyone wants to avoid her because she’s “trouble”. Everyone avoids her because they’re scared that she’ll make trouble by getting them in trouble with Curley. An example of when she admitted that she doesn’t care for her husband
The main character is a strong and passionate little girl who is not affected by seeing the deaths of farm animals which are given humane names but cries out her because of her inability to do the things she wants because of the expectations of her gender. Her father and mother are traditional in their outlooks and in their portrayal of farmhouse life. The family represents typically working class american family that is built on their faith, work ethic, place in the world. They have possibly conservative closed minded views that may cause them to believe the things they do about gender
She was treated as if she had a lower social class than the rest of her family. Her step-mother “could not bear the good qualities of this pretty girl, and the less because they made her own daughters appear the more odious.” This jealousy led to taking power over her, overloading her with chores in the house and treating her as an object rather than human. They were so cruel to her, as they even mocked her, with her name originally being “Cinderwench.” She couldn’t tell her father about the cruelties that she dealt with, since if she did, her father “would have rattled her off; for his wife governed him entirely.”
This, is the true meaning of friendship. In Of Mice and Men George and Lennie take care of each other a great amount. In the novel the text read “… because I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you” (Steinbeck 14). This quote shows that George and Lennie have always got the other persons back and they know it, too.

The novel, Of Mice and Men, has several characters in it that I have noticed have similar characters as myself. These characters that I will write about are Lennie, George, and Slim.

Other similar qualities he has is being a good worker and follower.
