The reason I think so is because spiritual, mental, and emotional aspects are much more significant than physical aspects. The story Of Mice and Men took place during the Great Depression, where close friendship between people was rare and unusual, and George benefited because he had a companion that traveled with him and always stayed with him. Lennie told George that if he is causing too much trouble for George, he can live in a cave alone, but George did not accept. When George shot Lennie (for Lennie’s benefit) and the friendship ended, George became extremely lonesome and he desired a friend like Lennie. Back to The Mighty, Kevin and Max realized that they had something in common.

The song shows how the love in the story is truly "Heartless" Chapter 9- "(Per) Version Of The Truth"- Mudvayne. Truth and Lies.

George stated at the beginning that Lennie always gets into troubles. “You do bad things and I go to get you out,” (Steinbeck, 11). When Lennie held Curley's wife tighter and tighter we all knew whats going to happen because first he killed a mouse and he thought he will not do the same thing with a puppy. John Steinbeck used his creativity use of foreshadowing to make the book more enjoyable to read. Lennie seems to be very strong, but in reality he is the weakest character in the novel “Of Mice And Men”, because of the lack of his mentality ability and the missing characteristic to think for himself and make his own decisions.
He feels like his obsession for Martha has led to his failure as a Lieutenant. The author states, “He felt shame. He hated himself. He had loved Martha more than his men, and as a consequence Lavender was now dead, and this was something he would have to carry… for the rest of the war” (719). When Lavender is killed Cross believes it is all his fault because he was too busy daydreaming about his love for Martha.
The creature lies at the center of the action as he is rejected by his creator, society and living a lonely life. The creature is first perceived as the sympathetic character when his own creator, Victor, abandons and rejects him. When Victor sees his creation, he coils shamelessly in horror because of his repulsive figure that even, “a mummy again endured with animation could not be so hideous as that wretch” (Shelley 49). Feelings of disappointment, disgust and with no conception what he was doing, Victor decided to ditch the monstrous creature and retreats from home. The events that occurred during the beginning of chapter 4 can be perceived as a clueless child being abandoned by their own parents, which caused readers to
The King tells Rosencrantz and Guildenstern that he is concerned about their friend’s (Hamlet) behavior and asks if they can do anything to help. After leaving the castle the two argue with fear of what this might mean for their life. Guildenstern ends the conversation/argument with: “The only beginning is birth and the only end is death- if you can’t count on that, what can you count on?” (Act 1, Stoppard) Their lives have been filled with uncertainty and dismay for a large part of it. They are roamers and truly have no set distention or goal for themselves and really only had each other. They are the
In my opinion, these lines reflect Macbeth’s hopelessness and indirectly reflect much thinking of Shakespeare. Macbeth speaks these lines after listening to his wife’s death. At this time, life to Macbeth is meaningless and the death is not very important and worthy being painful at all. When uttering this saying, Macbeth may think about his real life in which he made “a lot of noise”, he wrote a story, he fought many battles, he tried to become a king, he kept the throne; however, after death they all seem to become nothing. In Macbeth’s as well as Shakespeare’s thinking, all people in this life are just bad, stupid actors- shouting and running about and generally making a lot of noise and fuss but not much sense, and then they die anyway and become completely meaningless.
He doesn’t care about his arm and that’s why they are hanging next to him. It coul also show lennies extreme strenght, which i soften decribed later on in the novel. In another part of the book, the autho decribes lennies innocence. He does it like shown. After George says to Lennie,: „Trouble with mice is you always kill 'em.
No, they are not, all they know is that their son or brother is gone, and the only reason for their loss, is a war which is completely futile, a pointless war which destroyed an entire generation. The novel also talks about pointless attacks on the enemy that can only result in certain death. A specific example of this is Pages 172-175 of Private Peaceful. This is the section of the novel where Sergeant Hanley gives a direct order to a group of men to storm the enemy’s line in broad daylight, which can result only in death. When Charlie refuses to follow the order, he is sent to the
Just like his back, his life is broken. The character of Crooks foreshadows the end of George and Lennie when he taunts Lennie in the stable. Crooks scares Lennie by telling him that George will never return. In the end, Crooks prediction comes true. “Eleanor Rigby” by Paul McCartney and John Lennon also relates to loneliness because Eleanor Rigby is a lonely person who doesn’t have anyone to share her life with.
