Without their relationship there would be no book. You get to read a lot about how George and Lennie communicate with each other. Segregation is likewise in the book. There is the obvious one: Criminals the negro steady buck is distinguished from the others since he is black, he isn’t even enabled to oversleep the same bunkhouse as the other ranch employees. However others in the story are set apart from the group as a whole. Curley’s spouse is overlooked by everyone, the only female on the cattle ranch and she has actually noone to talk to.

There is a lot of prejudice towards the 2 aforementioned characters. Other characters whom individuals feel bias against are Lennie, for his impairment and Candy, who like his dog is getting old and will soon have actually outlived his usefulness. Another style present is the among innocence. Lennie has the mind of a small child, he is very innocent and naive. He doesn’t realise what he’s doing most of the time. How can he be guilty of a criminal activity when he hasn’t done anything damaging on purpose? He does not know his own strength. He doesn’t know much at all. One thing he does understand is that George keeps an eye out for him and he is very faithful towards him.

In the outsider’s chapter he gets very upset when Crooks indicates that something may have occurred to George in town. It’s interesting that he is so faithful to George but that he can’t remember his Aunt Clara, someone in fact associated to him by blood and that took care of him for some time. There is a fair quantity of violence in the book. A few of it is intentional, Curley trying to select a battle with Lennie, the ranch hands pursuing Lennie at the end of the novel all intent on causing discomfort and/or eliminating him. The one who causes one of the most discomfort and many death though is Lennie however he barely realises it.

He shatters Curley’s hand, eliminates all the animals he gets and likewise Curley’s better half. However solitude is absolutely the greatest style in the book because everyone in the story struggles with it. The farm hands going from cattle ranch to ranch by themselves George talks about their loneliness already in the very first chapter, Curley’s other half caught on a cattle ranch with a lot of men who will not speak to her because they run the risk of entering trouble with Curley, Crooks who is cast out by everyone, Candy is alone after they shoot his canine who was the only continuous companion in his life. All these characters admit that they are lonesome.

The only people that aren’t alone are George and Lennie so it is quite unfortunate that he has to shoot Lennie, which might be the very best for Lennie at the time but from then on George joins the ranks of lonely ranch hands travelling by themselves. Except he has actually understood friendship so he will constantly understand what he’s missing out on; the other men have actually never ever had anyone they were that near to so they don’t understand his pain after he shots Lennie. This is obvious in the last sentence uttered by Carlson enjoying George and Slim leave together.

“Now what the hell ya suppose is eatin’ them 2 guys? “
