Lennie’s physical strength is an extreme form of physical harassment. One example of the lack of intelligence of Lennie is when he speaks to the dead pup, “Why do you got to get killed? You ain’t so little as mice. I didn’t bounce you hard.” (Steinbeck, 85). Steinbeck uses these examples to foreshadow the eventual death of Curley’s wife.
(Chpt.3 pg.44) Here Carlson is telling Candy how worthless it is to the ranch and to itself. Candy struggles with this harsh reality, but eventually lets Carlson take the dog outside and shoot him. Candy later regrets letting Carlson do this, and he thinks that he should have been the one to end the dog’s life. George will remember this later on and take it upon himself to end the life of Lennie. Lennie was an obedient and hard worker for many years with George.
Lennie and Cosmo are similar in many ways but also very different with the fact that Cosmo is a fairy and his show is a cartoon. Lennie is a strong, large and slow man. Lennie can’t tell right from wrong, he often has pets that he kills because he pets them too hard. Towards the end of Of Mice and Men he actually pets a woman too hard and ends up killing her. Lennie, because of his mild mental disability depends completely on George; pretty much to survive.
In Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck argues that being loyal is a valuable concept in life, but can sometimes be very difficult. His message is sometimes in relationships, everything can go the wrong way and you have nothing else to do except the right thing, even if it isn’t being loyal. Since Lennie didn’t know allot of things about life and common sense, George is forced to teach him everything. Sitting down by the river after running away from their job because of Lennie again, a pissed off George yells, “Well, we ain’t got any, whatever we ain’t got that’s what you want.” (11) Lennie’s lack of intelligence and his actions repeatedly effect their job security. George is not only forced to deal with the consequences of these actions but be takes them on as his own
An example of this is that he thinks Candy’s dog should be shot because it’s old and smelly. He also thinks that Candy could have one of Slim’s puppies instead. However he can’t see that Candy might have an emotional attachment to his dog. For me this suggests that Carlson is insensitive and doesn’t care about anyone other than himself and he believes that he should always get what he wants. Another reason
In the last scene he tries to save Kevin, and does by pushing him away from the van but in the process cuts his face, everyone thinks that Edward is attacking Kevin and Jim beats him up. This is a great example of Edward trying to do good but is thought of been evil. Edward is essentially stuck in Limbo, he is the nicest person in the film, but is made out to be the most evil. Jim and Kim are a prime example of two opposite worlds, Jim been dark and Kim been light. Kim is the most innocent person stuck in-between Jim and Edward.
Name Teacher Course Date Morality in Zora Neale Hurston’s “Sweat” Zora Neale Hurston’s “Sweat” suggests a lack of morals from both Delia and Sykes. Morality is an extent to which an action is right or wrong. Throughout the story, Sykes shows his lack of morals. Sykes put a rope on Delia’s back knowing she hates spiders, snakes and bugs, which caused Delia to freak out. An example of Sykes lack of morals is, “If you such a big fool dat you got to have a fit over an earth worm or a string, ah don’t keer how bad ah skeer you” (705).
George may do things to Lennie which Lennie finds "mean", like alaways taking away dead mice from him, but unlike Lennie, the reader can understand why he does this. If the mouse's body was infected, then it would do damage to Lennie as the mouse "ain't fresh". This clearly shows that George cares about Lennie. George also cares about Lennie physically and can't stand to see him hurt, as he tell Lennie to "get him [Curley]" when Curley is attacking him, and also immediatly defends Lennie when Curley verbally attacks him - "Lennie didn't do nothing to him". All of this shows that George is a caring person who is loyal to Lennie and can't stand to see him bullied or hurt.
Dreams were rarely obtained due to the harsh circumstances. In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, a majority of the most neglected characters carry foolish dreams that are out their reach; from owning rabbits to becoming a movie star. The lower class people do not realize the reality that surrounds them. Steinbeck implies that dreams never come true; no matter how hard one tries or believes. He demonstrates this by utilizing Lennie and Curley’s wife’s crushed ambitions.
Okay, these are exactly the same as “how far” questions. You need to say that we do feel sorry for Lennie, but also we don’t. Here is what I would do:- Paragraph one – He doesn’t understand, he is completely naïve and dependent * “I di’n’t mean no harm, George” * “let ‘im have what, George?” * “It’s mean here” * “I can just as well go away” Paragraph two – He loses everything, his dream, the mice and the pup * “He pulled the trigger” * “he ain’t gonna let me tend the rabbits” * “you’ve broke it pettin’ it” * “An’ then he was dead” Paragraph three – He is consistently picked on by other men, including
