A father is a figure to look up to, but Keller has made Chris so ashamed and disgusted, he is unable to even face his own father. When Chris reads Larry’s letter, it is also evident that Larry turned himself in because he couldn’t live with the shame of being part of the Keller family: ‘I don’t know how to tell you what I feel… I can’t face anybody…’ (The ellipsis’ add drama and emotion to his words.) In effect, Larry’s suicide is the reason for Keller’s suicide. Throughout the play, Kate is incredibly loyal to Keller, and even when she finds out the truth about Larry, she doesn’t get angry with him, and she stands up for Keller when Chris talks badly of him.

The chords don’t make sense, the rhythm ceases to exist, and by killing Mr. Clutter, Smith and Hickock made it impossible for that family to ever recover, even if they hadn’t killed the rest of the members.
Through Steinbeck’s literary techniques he explains the causes of Lennie’s death through the theme, characterization and foreshadowing. Although Steinbeck was able to leave his readers with many thoughts to think about from the story, one of the themes that clearly show the cause of Lennie’s death is sacrificing. Even though by killing Lennie, George lifts a heavy burden off his chest for he no longer has to take care of Lennie and deal with all the troubles Lennie keep on making for him. However, George has to sacrifice his friendship and love because by shooting Lennie he loses a friend whom had always been keeping him company and shares a dream with him, to have their own farm where they would share and live together.

He goes from childhood companions and memories, to his drinking buddies, to his sister or loved one, to his best friend. This progression of thought creates an exhaustive list of all those he had lost in his life, to give us a feeling that he had lost everything.
