Piggy expresses his fear for Jack. Continuing on page 93, “He can’t hurt [Ralph]: but if you stand out of the way he’d hurt the next thing. And that’s [Piggy].” Piggy is going on too say that Ralph could be the only leader, because Jack hates him, but he can’t do anything about it.
He also would listen to everything that George would tell him to do. If George didn’t kill Lennie he would either have gone to jail or “‘They’ll take ya to the booby hatch. They’ll tie ya up with a collar, like a dog’”(pg72). If George didn’t kill him Lennie would have been tortured by Curley because Lennie had humiliated him and killed his wife. George also killed him because he didn’t want to regret not killing Lennie himself rather than someone else killing him that wouldn’t have cared.
He’s more concerned with what will happen to him, someone who actually had something to do with William’s death, than to Justine, who is completely innocent. Lastly, the monster says he will leave Victor and his family alone if Victor makes him a female companion, but he can’t even do that. “I thought with a sensation of madness on my promise of creating another like to him, and trembling with passion, tore to pieces the thing on which I was engaged”(180). The creature threatens him and
Although it doesn’t sound like a sacrifice, it is. George had to kill Lennie to avoid being confronted by Curley and Carlson, who were both set on killing Lennie themselves. George knows that when he kills Lennie that he and Lennie will finally be at peace, when he quotes on page 106, “No Lennie, look down there acrost the river, like you can almost see the place.” This shows how George knows that when Lennie dies, he will live on in the peaceful place that he and George had imagined. George had to sacrifice Lennie for his own well being, and it was definitely not an easy thing to do, especially considering everything they had been through.
Would you sacrifice a fun life to take care of a person you loved? In the story “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck, two opposites, George and Lennie, act as brothers. These characters will face more than a few lamentations with other characters throughout the whole story. Although George will show acts of kindness and acts of sympathy toward others, he mostly acts rude and aggressive toward others.
After Bob Ewell, the prosecutor of Tom Robinson, attacks the children and dies in the attempt, Atticus refuses to cover it up because he, “‘Don’t want him growing up with a whisper about him, I don’t want anybody saying, [...] Sooner we get this over with the better’” (Lee 366). Atticus would not let the local sheriff say that Jem did not kill Bob Ewell because he thought that Jem did at the time, and wants his kids to know that they should be treated like the rest of the community. Before that, when Atticus was defending Tom Robinson, he was telling the jury that the opposition had lied because they were, “‘confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption—the evil assumption—that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women’”
Actually, it is not his first time to hurts someone by throwing the stone. He has the experience of bullying the little boy by throwing the stones. Since Roger knows that there’s no adult on the island, he misses the stone to test whether he is going to get trouble or not. He wants to make sure that he is safe, even though he breaks the rule. This experience brings misunderstanding courage to Roger.
Perhaps George got tired of Lennie and took his life out of anger as his job and dream of sharing a farm with Lennie became impossible, or maybe George had had enough and killed Lennie because “(…) he [Lennie] gets in trouble alla time because he’s so God damn dumb.” (OMM, 42). On the contrary, after Lennie had killed Curley’s wife George knew what Curley’s lynch mob would come for Lennie and make his death painful by “(…) shoot[ing] the guts outa that big bastard” (OMM, 96-97). George simply helped Lennie the only way he knew how, by taking his life quickly after telling him what he wanted to
They decide to keep the money until Coyotito was fully healed just in case anything anything comes up or gets sick again. Juana and Kino start to separate and have different ideas for their futures. This is where the story starts to go backwards. Juana basically just tries to throw the pearl away and Kino doesn 't allow it and has to slit some throats but not Juana’s because they were being attacked. He promises to sell the pearl that has caused them so many troubles.
As soon as Prince Prospero knew about the disease he immediately tried to build a wall to keep it out, because he didn’t want to face it himself. The Prince just wanted to shut it out. This is very negative because it didn’t solve any problems, it just postponed them. Readers can see that Prince Prospero is a scared and selfish man,
Some things may seem unethical from a far in war but, bad happens, and with an enemies push you can 't pull, you have to push back, but stronger. I’ve noticed some say that being a sniper is cowardly, but I disagree. He stopped others from killing the people on his side, making them able to continue. Unfortunately Chris’ brave run in life ended in 2013, when a former marine shot and killed him at a gun range. (Aldrich, Ian) Chris may mainly be remembered for shooting an enemy from an unbelievable 2,100 yards away, or a call he made when an unaware child was holding a weapon that threatend his people, but in all honesty, he should be remembered for the strength, nobility, and bravery he showed, not his stats.
What this shows is that Darry would beat up Dally if he got found out that Dally got Ponyboy and Johnny out of town with money and a gun, which means that all he is doing is sticking up for his brothers. He doesn’t want them to get into any trouble or run away.
The side that I am choosing is that George should have killed Lennie because Lennie can’t live by himself, he is mentally challenged, and Curley would have killed him anyway if George didn 't. Lennie is mentally challenged and he likes to talk to dead animals and other different things. He gets in trouble a lot and can 't really do anything by himself because he will always be getting in trouble if he is by himself. “Jus wanted to feel that girl’s dress-jus wanted to pet it like it was mouse(Steinbeck 11). The quote proves my reason because Lennie got both George and Lennie in trouble because he wanted to feel a girls dress. George should have killed Lennie because Lennie can 't live by himself and I believe if George didn 't kill Lennie
The next horrible act Lennie commits is caused by his fantasies of rabbits which lead to a fight between him and Curley that ends with Curley’s hand being completely crushed by Lennie’s out of control strength. Lennie cries “I didn’t wanta hurt him” (Steinbeck 64) and George says “Lennie was jus’ scairt... he didn’t know what to do” (Steinbeck 65). This proves that Lennie does not mean to harm people but due to his challenged mind and physical power it is
He killed his boss’s wife. Her hair was too soft for him not to touch, and he could not let go. The boss’s wife was screaming and crying, but the only way Lennie knew how to shut her up was by killing her. “‘George is gonna say I done a bad thing. He ain’t gonna let me tend the rabbits.’
