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.
In the beginning of the story, Brother recounts the day Doodle was born, saying that he was a disappointment as soon as he entered the world. The narrator was not satisfied with his brother, which resulted in the horrible things he thought about him. Brother said that “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable…” As a result, the narrator enjoyed torturing Doodle, threatening to abandon him multiple times. He even took Doodle to see the casket that was built for him, and forced him to touch it. The narrator basked in the control he had over his brother.
Lennie has got nobody to talk to besides George, and he means the world to him “Lennie who had been watching, imitated George exactly” Lennie copies everything that George does, like a brother, he also listens to everything George says but always forgets because of his illness “ I forgot again” this shows that it isn’t the first time that George has had to remind Lennie of something. Lennie tends to not talk to humans as much but to interact and communicate with animals for example the mouse he held at the start of the novel “I could pet it with my thumb” and the pup George gives Lennie “I just wanted to pet ‘um a little” but Lennie always ends up killing the animals. This foreshadows the terrible accident at the end where Lennie accidentally snaps Curleys wife’s neck, just like he did the pups. As well as Lennie, Curley’s wife is also lonely; Curley never gives her any attention, she has all these dreams but she is not allowed to live them because she married Curley “coulda been in the movies”. Also Curley doesn’t treat his wife very well, in those days hardly any men treated there wives well.
Just a Simple Outsider The novel “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck takes its’ setting in the 1930’s during The Grwat Depression. In this novel there’s two main characters Lennie and Geroge. These two men are on their journey to accomplish their dream but, they stumble on their way to achieve it. Lennie is mentally disabled and does as George tells him to. George is the dominant male in the relationship , because of Lennie’s disability it causes they both very much trouble back in Weed and on the ranch they arrive too after escaping.
George only had one choice, and that was to take care of Lennie himself. Even though the dream was more achievable now that Lennie was gone, it ment nothing to George. Everything that George ever had in his mind was destroyed with the mistake of leaving Curley's wife and Lennie together. The best laid plans of mice and men often go wrong. In conclusion the reader feels most sympathetic for George because taking care of Lennie caused him many unavoidedable problems, emotional burdens that will haunt him for the rest of his life, and a shattered dream.
After all, Pony is the main character because he is a human who makes mistakes but also tries to do the right thing. So, what seems to be Pony’s biggest flaw? Let’s say that his biggest flaw might be that he can be a bit judgemental. At the beginning of the novel, he doesn’t really like anyone except for Johnny, Soda, and Two-Bit. Ponyboy’s hatred towards Steve is obvious when HInton writes “ I’d never tell Soda, because he really like Steve a lot, but sometimes I can’t stand Steve Randle.
The bunkhouse is where most of the conversations happen. Loneliness is a key theme which occurs inside the bunkhouse because this is where Carlson bullies candy into allowing him shoot his ageing, smelly, crippled dog. Candy is dependent on his dog as the dog has been with him for a long time but also there are similarities between candy and the dog they can be both labelled as useless because candy lost his hand whilst he was working on the ranch so there aren’t much work for him to do, the reason he still is on the ranch is so that he could claim his compensation that he deserves, the dog is also useless because his old and tired and wouldn’t be able to herd the sheep as before. So when Carlson does shoot the poor dog candy feels alone with no one to be there with him. Dreams is also linked in with the bunkhouse because this is where George and Lennie discuss their dream ‘of living on the fat of the land’ ‘ Lennie tending the rabbits’ but candy over hears their conversation and wants to be part of their dream.
Wart is a very good person, but his actions always seem to go overlooked by everyone. One prime example of this is when Kay brought the griffin head and Wart brought Wat as a reward for saving the trapped prisoners. Wat was a mad man but Wart believed that Merlyn could have cured him. Wart obviously has the right intentions and put the well being of others his top priority. When the boys come back home, everyone seems disgusted to see Wat back but everyone seems proud of Kay especially Sir Ector.
