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.
His fearlessness shines through and reveals that he is not afraid of the beast. The fear the others have does not hold Simon back from doing the right thing. Simon goes off by himself and sees Jack kill the sow and put the head on the stick as an offering to the beast, after this he has a vision that the pig’s head is talking to him as the Lord of the
When he walked along the road, other animals stared at him and started to whisper when he passed them by. Suddenly, he got stuck in a trap and hurt himself, with a lot of wounds, he painfully continued his journey. However, he found himself being followed by someone or something, when he looked back, he saw a small rabbit with a smooth white fur,
George is a courageous person in the sense that he has to make all of the decisions on whether to kill Lennie, would it be right, or should they just forget about it and move on. This shows the reader what feelings George had for Lennie, and the amount of feelings that a person can have for a lifelong companion just as Candy did for his dog. This amounts to the reasons why people should be cautious towards actions against peoples’ loved ones, and their
George killed Lennie, just like Carlson, another gaucho at the ranch where the story happens killed Candy’s (another gaucho at the ranch) dog.He did it because he had to, and it was the best for the dog. Lennie had done something more acute than accidentally killing a small mouse or a puppy, he had murdered Curley’s wife. Whether it was on purpose or not, if George had let Lennie live Lennie could have been lynched or tortured to death. George knew he wouldn’t be able to live with himself if he let the man he was responsible for, be killed out of revenge. Lennie had no idea what he was doing, and it wasn’t fair that he should be killed out of hate.
George decided to kill Lennie himself because he knew that if Curley found the beast, he would instantly shoot him. As George hears the other people who are trying to hunt down Lennie he draws the gun and shoots Lennie in the back of the head. In my opinion it was the most human way, as he never really felt any
Luckily, you and I are hunters.” This quote shows that Rainsford thinks that violence is perfectly fine when hunting animals and Zaroff would agree with the quote as well. Why do you think Rainsford chooses to confront Zaroff at the end, instead of ambush him? 7a: I think he does this to rub it in to Zaroff because Zaroff was so sure that he would win the game because he wins every game he faces. Also Rainsford wanted to show how terrible it is for humans to be killed and do it himself to show Zaroff that evil always comes back to haunt you. 8.How do time and place affect the actions of the
The unseen narrator describes with little detail the coming of the rabbits, the encounter being full of curiosity at first. Later this expression, both from readers and the numbats, darken as it becomes obvious that the rabbits are invaders. The narrations and illustrations also well describe the land and its original inhabitants. These impacts include the stealing of their children which creates a negative view and sad response from readers towards the rabbits. The losing battle faced by the numbats and the final question at the end of the book, “who will save us from the rabbits?”, leaves the readers’ in such intense emotion and thought.
Rather than ending the “game” as the victorious hunter as Zaroff would have liked, the murderer becomes the hunted, Rainsford’s victim. Although a wise and brave man, Rainsford falls right into the trap the general has set up for him. The two men prove to be equal in a few aspects: intelligence, strategy, size, skill, and experience, while their breach lies in question of morality. What is murder? Zaroff and Rainsford are on the same page when it comes to hunting animals; they do not view hunting as morally wrong.
George had to kill Lennie instead of the other guys dealing with Lennie. Without the other main benefactor to the dream, George realized that he would never be anything but a migrant worker. “ The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”, Robert Burns’ TO A MOUSE. The title of the book comes from this quote, which means no matter how carefully a project is planned, something can always go wrong. George believed his plans were going to be successful but he learned that seldom are dreams
