Essay Topic: Compare and contrast the dependency within characters in Kitchen (Mikage and Yuichi) and Of Mice and Men (Lennie and George)
Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto and Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck both have significance in the relationship of dependency between the two main characters. In Kitchen, the main characters, Mikage and Yuichi's relationship became relatively stronger after the death of Eriko and Grandmother, due to the similarities between loneliness, and loss of love. Therefore, the unwillingness of letting each other down, they tend to become more independent in the relationship. In Of Mice and Men, Lennie, who is a mentally disabled, leads the relationship to seem as one-sided, that Lennie depends on George for everything. Unlike the independency between Yuichi and Mikage, the dream ranch that George and Lennie have together brings them closer together. Although, the relationships of both characters in the novels may seem to be independent or one-sided, the fact that Mikage and Yuichi depend on each other, and George and Lennie's reciprocal relationship is irrevocable.
In Of Mice and Men, George begins to show reliance on Lennie as he finally understands the importance of Lennie.
