This shows that Atticus is not afraid to die for something he knows is right if it benefits to everyone and he knows it takes courage to do Atticus was looked up to by
He is a loving husband, a hard working farmer, a proud father, and most important a faithful Christian. He is a stand-up guy who spoke his mind. Around town, his name was always mentioned with honor and integrity. He took pleasure in exposing hypocrisy and was respected for it. He never once censored what came out of his mouth, and always left the truth exposed even it meant hurting people around him.
He decides who is wrong and right and is like the law on the ranch. The other men recognize his superiority and never question his actions or decisions, making Slim a constructive role-model for the men, except for Curley. Slim can’t influence Curley and is not a good role-model for him. For example, when Curley’s wife dies, Slim suggests Curley ‘stay with his wife’ but Curley is set on finding Lennie to kill him,
Shane courageously defeats Wilson to defend Joe and the other homesteaders. Shane demonstrates he is a hero by fighting with Wilson to support Joe for his right to his land. Shane only challenges the rival because he instinctively shields others from danger. <br> The archetype of a mentor, portrayed by Shane, acts like a parent, guides the student and gives advice. Shane is the patient teacher, who trains Bob to handle a gun, to ride â€œtall and straightâ€ in the saddle and who advises him that fighting is not learned, it comes naturally.
He has a lot of patience for him, because he knows that nobody else would want to take care of him, they’ll put Lennie in a cage and lock him up, like a wild animal and George he will feel the guilt if he lets that happen. But at times George gets frustrated at Lennie and snaps because of what Lennie commits. It is clearly stated “Listen you crazy bastard,” he said fiercely” Don’t you even take a look at that bitch’ ” (Steinbeck, 32). Even though he is caught up in these tight situations he still holds on to their bond because he knows that he is there for Lennie and Lennie is there for him. The relationship he has with Lennie is not an equal relationship, due to t he fact that George is always protecting Lennie from the dangers he is exposed to and causes a huge negative impact on
“Atticus had promised me he would wear me out if he ever heard of me fighting any more.” (99) Scout thinks. Atticus tells Scout to ignore the comments, and let them say what they want. He seems invincible, until he is faced with Tom Robinson’s trial. He knows that he will not win this case, for the racism among the Maycomb residents is too strong. Yet he perseveres, trying to get an appeal from the court, on behalf of Tom Robinson.
For example, at the drive-in, Johnny managed to raise his voice to Dally—which had been Johnny’s most helpful “stand over” man as well as idol—telling him to stop harassing the two girls, Cherry and Marcia. Due to the new boldness of Johnny, Dally had been shocked and therefore stepped away as told. Fortunately, Johnny’s intervention on the girls’ behalf pleases the girls, and they talked and walked with the greasers. On the other hand, this interaction between the female Socs and male greasers sparked the anger of the Soc boys and motivated them to attack Johnny and Ponyboy. When he and Pony were later jumped by the Socs in the park, Johnny had the nerve to use his switchblade to attempt to scare off the Socs.
Even Curley. I know where they all went.” This shows us that Curley’s wife is aware of what men in the society are like but she still decides to stay with him because she had no choice – highlights the inferior of women. Another way that Curley tries to prove himself to the ranchmen is by constantly finding opportunities to vigorously pick a fight – especially with Lennie to demonstrate his power against everyone else. “No big son-of-a-bitch is gonna laugh at me.” Shows us that he does this to resent himself from being a smallish man, this can reflect on him knowing that his size is his weakness in comparison to Lennie’s bear-like physical features. All this gives the reader an idea that men in the 1930s were careless and they would do anything to prove their authority – no matter what.

Rubin could take a man out with just one punch But he never did like to talk about it all that much It's my work he'd say and I do it for pay And when it's over I'd just as soon go on my way Up to some paradise Where the trout streams flow and the air is nice And ride a horse along a trail But then they took him to the
