I can go away any time”(13). He requests that it would better off for George and everyone else if he is alone, even though he wants someone to talk to and be with. None of the other people really like Lennie on the farm and especially when the climax of the story happened he was dreadfully hated. Everyone was out to get him and George is the only one looking out for him. This is one of the reasons Lennie never wants George to leave he
This here’s my room. Nobody got any right here but me” (68). Lennie’s intention was to make friends, on the other hand, Crooks have been isolated for a long time that he doesn’t want to make any friends. Even though Crooks have been rejective towards Lennie, Lennie tries to ask him questions about the puppies, Crooks insists that “this is just a nigger talkin’, an’ a busted-back nigger. So it don’t mean nothing, see?” (71).
Perry has many sociopathic characteristics including, lack of moral responsibility or social conscience, erratic behavior, rage and anger, ability form a particular relationship to one person, crimes are usually spontaneous. Perry’s erratic spontaneous outbursts is what caused him to go through with the murders and slit Mr. Clutter’s throat which put him on the killing frenzy that ended the rest of the Clutters lives. Capote highlights Perry’s sociopathic tendencies by comparing them to that of Dicks Psychopathic tendencies which exemplifies how when put together they are at each others fault for the
While his back is indeed a physical defect that hinders him, but the thing that segregates him from the others is his race. Crooks isn’t allowed to sleep in the bunkhouse or play cards with the white men. He gets lonely and resentful from having to stay in the barn all the time. When he is talking to Lennie, he says, “‘S’pose you didn’t have nobody. S’pose you couldn’t go into the bunkhouse or play rummy
Throughout his life, Crooks has seen many people with dreams that are never achieved. “‘Nobody ever gets to heaven, and nobody gets no land… They’re all the time talking about it, but it’s jus’ in their head’” (Steinbeck 72). Crooks believes that dreams never come true, no matter how often they are discussed or how much work goes towards them. As a child, Crooks played with white children that came to his family’s ranch. Crooks dreams of being equal to everyone like he was then, but he knows it is unlikely to happen.
Loneliness is a state of sadness caused by a lack of friends or company, it is the quality of being remote and isolated from people whether it was by choice or not. In John Steinbeck’s novella Of Mice and Men, George and Lennie are hired at a ranch for a new job. They meet Curley, the boss’ son, who does not like Lennie and always wants to start problems with him. They also meet other interesting people such as Candy, Crooks, and Curley 's wife. They open up and offer their thoughts and feelings to George and Lennie that they have never spoke about before to anyone, which accidently causes Curley’s wife to be killed by Lennie resulting in Lennie being shot by George.
Steinbeck displays Crook’s isolation by describing how he lives alone in a “little shed,” excluded from the companionship in the bunkhouse. Crook’s possessions include many books that he reads instead of having company. “Crooks was a proud, distant man” because he has no choice but to endure this prejudice and isolation. Consequently, he bitterly guards his privacy, saying to Lennie, “this here’s my room...I ain’t wanted in the bunkhouse, and you ain’t wanted in my room.” This suggests that he is unaccustomed to company making him suspicious of others. Crooks combats his loneliness with books and work, but he realises that these things are no substitute for human companionship, evident when he says, “a guy needs somebody - to be near him”, admitting to being lonely and insinuating that he longs for
Another example is when he has this conversation with Slim, "I ain't got no people," George said. "I seen the guys that go around on the ranches alone. That ain't no good. They don't have no fun. After a long time they get mean.
George had specifically told lennie not to talk to anyone, but sometimes people get a little bit lonely. So when all the guys went into town and left lennie alone back at the barn, everything went wrong. First of all, lennie had seen the light of Crooks barn room. Crooks is a black man, ¨He kept his distance and demanded people to keep theirs¨ ( John Steinbeck 67). Lennie had entered the room.
He was not like anyone else; most people don’t help others instead of doing their own chores. Rip was individualistic and that was a big characteristic of the Romantics era. Rip’s reaction to his wife’s lectures was “He shrugged his shoulders, shook his head, cast up his eyes, but said nothing” (473). His reaction would make his wife mad and he would go outside, where “in truth, belongs to a henpecked husband” (473). This part shows that nature is the only
Crooks appears like an unhappy person to the other mens, because he is always rude and he always stayed on his own, every time the men 's want to go in his room he is always saying no so the others just see him as a rude and unhappy person, he is never been happy just once when he hoped he could be hanging out with Lennie and George, but he said no to himself so he is pretty lonely after. Crook is lonely cause he is the only one with a different colour skin, and so anyone really talk to him, and also he live separately from the other so he 's not connected to the others, and when Lennie tries to be friend with him he 's rejecting him. So he 's ends
George keeps Lennie around because it keeps him from being like other ranchers, most ranch workers go ranch by ranch having no one to talk to or have fun with and they just turn mean. According to Slim on pg
