Although he has learning difficulties he can still tell the moral difference between right and wrong. You understand this from when he killed the puppy and he has to hide it from George as he knows George will punish him. Along with his Along with his unknown strength Lennie tends to get angry when things don’t go his way. Like in the situation with Crooks he repeatedly mentions ‘who hurt George’ and ‘Aint nobody goin’ to talk no hurt to George’ when Crooks realises his fury he
He may admire some of the traits that finny has that he is Muno2 also jealous of or how Finny is capable of getting away with a lot of the trouble he causes. Gene seems to fall into a more depressive state as World War II goes on and the fact that his friendship is fading with his friend. Something else interesting that happens to Finny is how he starts to become confused with his identity. After the incident with Finny, Gene begins to do some out of the ordinary activities such as wearing Finny's clothing, walking in the dark and the inability to cry at Finny's funeral. It is obvious how Gene had reacted to the incident.
We know this because he began to 'cry with fright' and he knows that he has done ‘a bad-thing’ because he is aware that he has done a bad thing; this enlightens the readers that when Lennie senses danger, he feels threatened and becomes very dangerous. In section six, Lennie dies happily, knowning that George was never mad at him, despite his urge and love for soft things, he is still appreciated by the readers and we also discover how Lennie is a significant character because without him there is no dream. Furthermore, [Crooks astutely notes that Lennie cannot remember what he is saying, but points out that most people in
He goes about living a life it seems he doesn’t want and goes without little reward for the task he has taken (besides friendship and a friend in Lennie). Even when he treats Lennie harshly, because of the life Lennie has taken from him, he shows restraint and resistance when it actually comes to getting rid of him. The situation in which Lennie opts to move into a distant cave in the mountains George replies, “I want you to stay with me, Lennie… Your Aunt Clara wouldn’t like you running off by yourself, even if she is dead” (Steinbeck 12). Readers are show that there is a true deep connection, friendship, and bond between these two men; that George really does love and care for Lennie making his decision to end Lennie’s life. George had nothing but the safety and well being for Lennie at heart.
I snapped.” Because Vince keeps letting others hurt him for who he is, he becomes smaller as a person. Even his godfather, who was supposed to help him find his true identity, called him honey, thinking that Vince would be fine. Therefore, fear shouldn’t be destroying who we are because it’s not going to do any good except for hurting us physically. Secondly, fear shouldn’t hold us back because we are not alone. Someone close to us may be experiencing the same thing and we just may not know it.
He has a childlike faith that George will always be there for him, a faith that seems justified, given their long history together. George, on the other hand, thinks of Lennie as a constant source of frustration. He has assumed responsibility for Lennie’s welfare and has, several times, been forced to run because of trouble Lennie has inadvertently caused. Life with Lennie is not easy. However, despite George’s frequent bouts of anger and frustration, and his long speeches about how much easier life would be without Lennie, George is clearly devoted to his friend.
His reasons were, ‘someone saying he’d look a god in kilts’ and to ‘please his Meg’. The reader is given the impression that his mind is still dazed from his experiences hence the disorderly thoughts. The war had caused him damage both mentally and physically and this raises poignancy. For instead of just disabling him, it has mentally affected him, hindering him from dreaming those dreams when he had ‘no fears of Fear’ and was ‘drafted out with drums and cheers.’ Moreover there is a more personal feel in his reminiscences as he takes the audience into his past and now to his present, he is
The sailors see skulls of dead men that have fallen for the siren’s song. Even though the men see it is a trick and can tell that they will die, they can’t bear to ignore the melodic tune and are forced to be sucked into the trap. In this sense, the author could be relating the deception and confusion of the sirens to everyday life situations. We see that there are consequences and that we shouldn’t do certain things, yet we still continue to fall into the trap of our own decisions. Some things seem so valuable and so intriguing that we want them, but a lot of the time they end up hurting us.
He explains, “I knew this meant sad, which is what I felt when I found the dead dog… Then she drew some other pictures, but I was unable to say what these meant” (Haddon 2, 3). By Christopher saying he “knew” what that meant, he’s showing that he can’t feel that it’s sad. As a result of Christopher’s non-empathetic nature, he tends to take things literally when they are not always meant to be. Metaphors are one thing that he takes too seriously, so Christopher is not fond of when people use them, he explains, “I think it should be called a lie because a pig is not like a day and people do not have skeletons in their cupboards” (Haddon 15). Since Christopher said “called a lie”, the insinuation is that he is not sure how to interpret these metaphors, instead, someone most likely normally would have said ‘is a lie’.
Although Lennie is very large and intimidating, he wouldn’t hurt a fly unless by accident. In this story Lennie gets a lot of mice to pet. Each time he kills it, it’s always by accident because being unbright as he is, Lennie doesn’t know his own strength. George wouldn’t let Lennie kill something on purpose unless it put them in danger. They got each other’s backs just like
