Ap English of Mice and Guy(Unfinished)
George Milton, a farmworker, who is “small and fast, dark of face, with agitated eyes and sharp, strong features … [with] little, strong hands, slender arms, and thin and bony nose” Milton is best friends, more like brothers, with Lennie Small, of whom will be pointed out later. George is an extremely effort guy, and is continuously concentrated on acquiring money to make his life much better, in addition to assist his pal Lennie. Lennie Small is anything however small. He’s a rather big guy, particularly in contrast to George.
Lennie treats George as rather of a mentor. The main ‘problem’ that Lennie has is that he handles somewhat of a psychological impairment. Its difficult for Lennie to bear in mind things, fixates on different small unneeded things, and is eager to make George delighted. What is their relationship like? Would you actually call it a friendship? George, throughout the book, constantly make Lennie seem like he’s a burden. For instance George states this to his ‘friend’,” … An’ whatta I got … I got you! You can’t keep a job and you lose me ever’ job I get.
Jus’ keep me shovin’ all over the nation all the time.” If George is depicted as such a great person, how can he be so impolite to Lennie? Now thats not to say that Lennie hasn’t done things to make George mad. Prior to they left Weeds, Lennie had actually gotten them kicked out of town since he looked and touched a female’s skirt. Lennie honestly doesn’t know that the things he does are wrong, he just sees things that he likes and he has to have them. George is a simple man actually, he has Lennie as his main companion.
In order to keep Lennie calm and hopeful, George constantly promises that both of them are going to get a farm,”live offa the fatta the lan’.” and Lennie will look after the bunnies. Lennie becomes consumed with the rabbits that they will ‘have’, and George sort of handle Lennie’s obsession with only a bit of anger. Nevertheless this changes when George and Lennie discover work at the cattle ranch, of which they were headed to at the start of the book. At the ranch George nd Lennie fulfill Candy, an older man who does some tasks around the ranch, and Curley, the one in charges’ boy who is extremely pugnacious and constantly looking for his other half. Now as soon as Curley’s brand-new partner goes into the picture, she flirts with George and finds Lennie appealing. This results in Curley getting defensive over his partner, of which he uses a vaseline filled glove for, and attempting to punch Lennie, which ends with a damaged hand due to Lennie’s big hands, brute strength, and luckily for Curley, George restraint on his good friend.
Now George is an excellent man, in a sense, however in circumstances like the fight in the bunkhouse of the cattle ranch, he lets Lennie combat his own battles, understanding that such a big guy can defend himself physically. Lennie, is huge, and can protect himself physically, but is defenseless emotionally. Lennie discovers himself focused on little useless things, and can not manage himself in some scenarios. For instance when Slim, a cattle ranch hand who demands regard and might be having an affair with Curley’s partner,’s pet has young puppies and offers one to Lennie, this start to head downhill at the cattle ranch.
Lennie is too huge for his own excellent and winds up eliminating the young puppy, unconsciously, and gets depressed about it for a while. George, who is expected to be a good individual, doesn’t actually help Lennie overcome his precious young puppy’s death. The death of his young puppy results in a depressed Lennie speaking to his young puppy and Curley’s ife pertaining to ‘comfort’ him. Curley’s wife forces herself upon Lennie, which Lennie doesn’t respond to based upon George’s caution not to speak with that woman, and the Wife continues to talk to Lennie.
He describes that he likes to touch soft things, like her hair, which causes Curley’s wife trying to get away, shrieking under Lennie’s strong hands, and Lennie shaking her, like he did the pup, and accidently breaking her neck. This minute brings George and Lennie’s friendship to light. Will George really measure up to his ‘good’ name? Despite George’s difficult temperament, george needs to go help his friend, for if the cattle ranch hands get to Lennie initially, they will not hesitate to kill him. George finds Lennie, tries to comfort him as best as he can, and lets Lennie lead himself into a location of paradise and shoots him.
George feels awful and in spite of Slim’s words,” You hadda, I swear you hadda.” This male is terribly lost without his good friend. Now George, who had actually appeared emotionless and only caring about the money, truly did care about Lennie, and didn’t feel like it was his ‘obligation’ to Auntie Clara to take care of him. Milton didn’t necessarily need to kill Lennie, given that if he did not reach him first he would’ve died anyway. Nevertheless this task, of which he took upon himself, did show that George Milton, was in truth a true pal.
In the start of this piece of literature, Milton is depicted as an individual who could truly care less about the well-being of his disabled good friend, Lennie Small. Regardless of all of the bad that Lennie had put him through, George would ultimately offer Lennie, the peace that he had constantly wanted. Lennie had always desired George’s approval, whether that be even prior to his death. Prior to his death, Lennie stated, “I thought you seethed at me, George.” Then George stated, “No, Lennie, I ain’t mad. I never been mad, and I ain’ now. That’s a thing I desire ya to know. “
