This reveals his sacrificial, committed selflessness to Huck. For example, when Huck and Jim find a floating house, Jim tells Huck to “[c]ome in…but [not to] look at his face- [because] it’s too gashly” (48). Jim is also righteously angry and scared when Huck plays tricks on him and causes him stress with his immature jokes. Jim feels very afraid when Huck “gets lost” as he explains to Huck that “…[h]is heart wuz mos’ broke bekase [Huck] wuz los’, en [Jim] didn’ k’yer no mo’ what become er [Huck] en de raf’” (80). Of course, another of Jim’s qualities rises to the surface here as the reader sees him forgive Huck.

In the novel, Finney repeatedly refuses to listen to the facts of Gene breaking Finney’s leg because he “do[esn’t] care,” (Knowles 151). Because Finney wouldn’t listen, he ran out and ends up breaking his own leg, and since he is reluctant to face reality, he gets sent to the hospital. Likewise, during the movie, even when Neil is not allowed to participate in the play, because of his strong passion for acting he still goes on with his part, though it upsets his father deeply (Dead Poets’ Society). Because Neil acts in the play, it causes his father to be infuriated with him, and Finney’s father decides to ship him off to another school. Both examples show how each of the boys are opposed to face their own realities, and because of this they end up hurting themselves.

Curley uses violence to emphasise his masculinity to both the other ranch hands and his wife, and take advantage of anybody who he thinks is weak, hence why the mentally-slow Lennie is his usual target.

Curley doesn't like feeling belittled so constantly feels the need to aggresively harm anybody whom he feels threatened by and almost control them, this quote said by Candy backs this up: "Curley's like a lot of little guys. He hates big guys. He's alla time picking scraps with big guys.
