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
When Curly first saw Lennie, he already had a bad impression towards him because Curly hated people that are bigger than him. What made it worse is that George was talking for Lennie because he didn't want him to say anything that could compromise their jobs. Curly got suspicious at Lennie because he didn't talk much, so George told Curly that Lennie is is cousin and that when he was young he got kicked in the head by a horse which caused his mental disablity. As Curley left, George told Lennie that he should avoid Curly before anything happens, but if Curly wanted a fight just give it to him and teach him a lesson. Minutes later, 2 of the handymen around the farm returned to the bunkhouse that they were in.
He didn’t mean to kill her, but since Lennie does not understand certain things, he also does not know his own strength. In conclusion, Lennie should not be held responsible for killing Curley’s wife. He should not be accountable because Lennie is not all there and had no idea what he was doing. Another reason Lennie should not be blamed is because Curley’s wife forced him to touch him to touch her hair, and if she did not do that and start yelling at him, none of this would have
They ain't got nothin to look ahead to. " Nobody likes feeling lonely but they had to deal with it. It shows that during the great depression individuals did not really have anyone and they all just worked for themselves. The loneliness on the ranch contrasts Lennie and George's close relationship by showing how truly important it is to have someone that is important to you. People will be desperate to be involved with people rather
George on the other hand is just a typical farmhand, not as strong as Lennie, but not nearly as dumb either. After Lennie's aunt Clara passed away George took the responsibility of looking after Lennie who was an animal lover, and couldn't take his hands off anything soft and fuzzy. Sadly he didn't know his own strength so he most often ended up killing them. Lennie and George weren't like other farmhands. They had each other, and therefore didn't live the life of solitude and isolation like many other farmhands.
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,
Look like all they want to do is knock you down.” Enoch tells Haze about his abusive father and this mean lady he lived with before he came there. It really makes me wonder if Enoch ever had anybody to talk to and that is why he is so strong on Haze; because Haze is listening. Enoch tells Haze that he has “wise blood”. “When he realized that today was the day he decided not to get up. He didn’t want to justify his daddy’s blood, he didn’t want to be always having to do something that something else wanted him to do, that he didn’t know what it was and that was always dangerous”(135).
Lennie believes in the farm and does whatever it takes to get there. He is always thinking about the rabbits and taking care of them. If Lennie does something wrong, the only thing he worries about is not being able to tend the rabbits. Lennie is blindly devoted to George and will and does everything he says. Lennie loves George and counts on him a lot of the time.
If Uncle Axel like David’s father who hates mutant, he would not have told him his special ability. Another example, “ "I want you to promise me that you will never, never tell anyone else what you have just told me - never”(4,31) This quote is describing the situation where Uncle Axel finds out about David can communicate with others only use his thought.

His interest and involvement in Dr. Jekyll’s affair contradict with the introduction of his personality in the very beginning of the book, which shows his indifference toward immorality and lack of social skill. s Mr. Utterson likes this letter because it says that his friend Dr. Jekyll is not blackmailed and the evil person Mr. Hyde will not distract Dr. Jekyll again. Also Mr. Utterson feels guilty and blames himself for his past suspicions, for Mr. Hyde does not intend to blackmail Dr. Jekyll at all. By contrast, Mr. Hyde fully realizes his unworthiness of inheriting Dr. Jekyll’s properties. However, Mr. Utterson is upset with the fact that the letter was from Dr. Jekyll as well after he lets his clerk compare the letter with Jekyll’s own
