Of Mice and Men
is a book written by John Steinbeck about two men, George and Lennie. They live in the great depression working to try and live their dream of owning their own farm. While working on a farm, Lennie accidentally snapped a woman's neck. It was because of this tragic mistake George was forced to make a hard decision by killing Lennie. In the end George made the wrong decision by shooting Lennie.
Some people
would argue that
Lennie was going to die
anyway, but someone could have helped him escape.
After all, Lennie was a
hard worker and
a good person.
It was wrong
of George to play
god. Who is he to predict
the future of another human being. Lennie could have escaped and lived
his life.
"Well, look.
Lennie – if you jus'
happen to get in trouble
like you always done before,
I want you to come right
here an' hide in the
brush," (Page 15).
"The nigger's
got a shotgun. You
take it, Carlson. When
you see 'um, don't give 'im no chance. Shoot for his guts. That'll double 'im over," (Page 97).
"We'll have a big
vegetable patch and a rabbit hutch ant chickens. And when
it rains in the winter, we'll just say the hell with goin' to work, and we'll build up a fire in the stove
an set around an' listen to
the rain comin' down
on the roof,"
(Page 14 & 15)
