Although George sees him as a frustration without him he wouldn’t be George. When Lennie and George are apart a bad terrible thing happens, Lennie kills Curley’s wife and causes his own death as well. George kills Lennie out of love and even though he didn’t want to at least he didn’t let some stranger do it. Throughout the book Lennie always knows at least one thing to be true, he always has George. In a couple of spots in the book Lennie remembers and repeats, “Because I got you, and you got me”.
Dying," Morrie suddenly said, "is only one thing to be sad over, Mitch. Living unhappily is something else. So many of the people who come to visit me are unhappy." (35) I think this quote means that dying is one thing, but if you live your whole life unhappy then you will never appreciate what have you accomplished. Yes, Morrie was dying but was happy with his accomplishments.
For example, one of the biggest differences between the book and the movie was the ending. In the book, the ending was very emotional when George was about to kill Lennie. George was very hesitant when he was trying to kill Lennie. He would hold the rifle to his head and take it down and stuttered several times before he actually pulls the trigger and kills Lennie. This created a sad and emotional ending because it shows George did not want to kill Lennie but had no choice.
We’re shown this when he changes his name back to Christopher Johnson McCandless – His original name is tied to his family and he wants to forgive them. We’re also shown that he feels lonely when he leaves on his journey. His sister understood him and yet he so easily left her like she didn’t mean anything to him. It was selfish of him and he realised that later on when he couldn’t get himself to call her. In the end, Chris was in peace with himself and death was in reality probably the easiest way out of his broken and “lonely” life.
No one should ever have to go through this but in this case, George was forced to take the life of his dear friend. George kills Lennie because if he doesn’t, Curley will torture him or he will rot in jail for murdering Curley’s wife. Lennie, being someone as innocent as he is, can’t handle that. Some may say that George was only trying to get Lennie off his back and that he shouldn’t have ended Lennie’s life but he had to kill him. He didn’t want to kill him but he needed to in order to save his friend from suffering.
However true that may be, that he did commit a final act of loyalty for his father, along the way he still continuously lost and found an inconsistent faith that lead him along a questionable heroic path of glory. Hamlet did not die as he lived; he accomplished his task but not admirably so. He disregarded everyone that sincerely cared for him, igniting a series of events that would eventually lead to their suicides and or murders. Hamlets did what he was meant to do, but the way in which he went about leaves many wondering at the true nobility of his
Besides, George knew that Lennie would not understand the reasoning behind Curley lynching him, he could have gone crazy and killed the whole ranch staff. George knew that, so he tricked Lennie into his own comfortable death. The fact that Lennie died next to his lifelong friend, imagining an unattainable dream that George and
I think this because the reporter said “ He was trying to deny his victims families to watch him suffer like his victims suffered.” This makes the reader get the impression that he was utterly ashamed of what he has done and he regrets his actions deeply. The author uses two methods in the article and one of the is fact and opinion, an example of a fact is ‘Michael tries to run, but he was gunned down with four shots’ the quotation creates an emotional response because it is blunt and represents the brutality in which one of the boy’s was killed. A second example of a fact was that “ Harris was sentenced to death” this one quote summarises
“Anguish and despair had penetrated into the core of my heart; I bore a hell within me, which nothing could extinguish.” (Shelley 75) However, Victor cannot explain the truth because he is afraid people will think he is crazy. He is convicted knowing that the monster caused the death of his own family member and the execution of Justine. Shelley conveys that the scientific attitudes of Victor creating the monster made Victor feel
Coming home after being trapped there felt like a god sent. My dead beat father didn’t seem to think the same as I did though. In his eyes, getting stuck there and being that close to death was my own fault. I was glad that the one thing he taught me paid off while I was there. That was to look out for no one but myself.
