George was merely protecting Lennie. He had known Lennie better then anyone else in the world. Who better to put an end to the inevitable then his best friend? Lennie really didn’t “mean no harm” and that he was “a nice fella”, but as the killings progressed from a mouse, to a dog, to a woman George had to do something. George and Lennie were already running from Weed.
Lennie’s a nice guy, he wouldn’t hurt no one on purpose, he wouldn’t hurt a fly, I know he wouldn’t mean to cause no trouble, but if Curley starts somethin’ I’ll tell Lennie to fight back ‘cos I’ve seen guys like him before. Guys like Curley need to be taught a lesson. I aint gonna let Lennie get beat up by Curley for no ‘cos that aint right. That wife of Curley’s worries me too. I heard she always gives everyone the eye; I’m worried that she might give Lennie the eye and he might do somethin’ stupid again like he did back in Weed.
I could have gone with her, but my father had all the power and money. He convinced me my place was with him and my mother was an emotional wreck and would ruin me mentally. Despite his infedelities towards her and my family I chose to stay with him through many strong armed persuasions. I strived on his absent approval and I felt my mother had forced him
Caleb and Maggie didn’t care what they said though and went on to loving each other and secretly meeting up. They enjoyed life together, side by side. Simone used the theme of love and tragedy to convince her audience that even though life is hard sometimes you just have to take the good with the bad and make the best of it. This refers to the quote as well. Its ironic how she almost died and he almost died too but when placed together, side by side, they can overcome
George, a family friend had promised their Aunty Clara to take care of Lennie which had proved to be an enormous job due to the fact that they had been exiled from Weed and would have been exiled again for Lennie’s improper behaviour. From the moment the pair had arrived at the ranch, Lennie had been discriminated against because of his large status. As they were getting to know the people around, Curly had come and sized up Lennie preparing to fight. Lennie was afraid and unaware of the peril he was in but George had come to the rescue, preventing the fight for the time being. Curly preyed on Lennie’s fear and attempted to harm him even though he had done nothing wrong.
Put a bullet in his head, like Carlson did to Candy’s dog. I know Curley woulda killed him anyways, cept he woulda shot him in his gut, made it real slow and painful. I saved him, din’t I? Din’t I? Aw, but this is pointless.
What types of emotions filled your heart? One emotional moment that filled my heart was when Fanta decided to kill her own baby and Sanu’s baby. I felt bad for Sanu because she was a quit character in the book and independent. It took courage for Sanu to jump out of the ship as soon as Fanta threw Sanu’s baby overboard, because as soon as the captors saw Sanu it the water they started shooting at her and basically committed suicide. 4 Aminata one day hopes that she returns back home to Bayo.
Wright was a wonderful woman who got along with anyone and was very caring. She was manipulated by her husband he dominated her, keeping her from the rest of the community. Mrs. Wright could only hide her emotions deep inside her and only worsening that torture day by day as he abused her. She had no one to turn to because they had lived so far away. Mr. Wright was killing her slowly but surely and she had no choice but to deal with the agony he put her through.
Some can’t help but wonder if it is indeed god’s “will that a child should suffer and its soul be dammed for a little blemish of the body” (Wyndham). But none of them see that “nobody, nobody, really knows what is the true image” (Wyndham). In V for Vendetta people are also killed for their physical appearances but also are denied every freedom that could be found in a normal society. “They take your parents, they take your brother from you, they take everything they can, accept your life” (McTeigue). Political activists are killed, anyone who attempts freedom or has an idea is killed or they “die defending [it]” (McTeigue).
