How strong is George and Lennie's relationship in 'Of Mice and Men'.

Extracts from this document...


Although not the same, their always together. John Steinbeck, author of of mice and men, makes a powerful relationship between George and Lennie. The love they have for each other, the feelings they have, and the dreams they look forward to accomplish together is just so priceless. For them two, friendship is everything. They do not care much for anything else beside loosing each other or getting apart. There is a strong bond in between them two. It never makes them feel alone, helpless, or poor. They are two opposite people on a lifetime journey. George is so kind, responsible, patient, and an understanding man. He understood Lennie when he finally defended him self from Crook, or when he got in trouble at Weed. If George were not a good friend, he would not be with Lennie, wasting his time. George loves Lennie and always wants the good of Lennie. In addition, he helps him find solutions or get away. ...read more.


If George were not a true friend, he would tell Lennie to do it repeatedly so a retarded man can entertain him. George reminds Lennie what he has to do all the time making sure that Lennie would not get in trouble again or forget what he has to do. For example when George kept on repeating to Lennie that if he gets in trouble at the ranch, he should come back near the bush and wait for him. Also to stay away from Curley's wife and not talk a lot in front of the boss or the boss's son, Curley. Rather then just a friend, George is a parent to Lennie as well. When Lennie hides an animal in his pocket dead or alive, George always notices it. Usually mothers are the one who have that kind of sense. Although since George is every thing to Lennie, he knows every thing, what Lennie is up to. ...read more.


Killing Lennie proves how much he cares about Lennie after all the mistakes and problems he has created. By killing Lennie were probably the nicest, and the hardest thing George can ever do for him. He always helped Lennie in his life and George still did in Lennie's last few moments by letting him die peacefully and mercifully while dreaming. Killing Lennie did not make George's life easier. Actually, it made it harder because now he is like all the other men working at the ranch. Now he cannot say that he is not like the others because now he does not have Lennie with him. Now he does not have someone beside him to talk to and share feelings. He does not have a partner to go along with everywhere. Now he does not even have a dream or any hopes. For the reason that all his dreams died along with Lennie. All this information is the proof of how strong George and Lennie's relationship is. They did all they can do for each other but unfortunately could not have gotten further in life together. ...read more.
