Of Mice and Men
By cfirby, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
Throughout the book of "Of Mice and Men", the theme of friendship and brotherhood is repetitively found. We find that occasionally George loses his temper when Lennie doesn't think. By him losing his temper, he's given a reminder that he wants Lennie to stay with him.( Mentioned on Pg.13)
"No-look! I was jus' foolin', Lennie. 'Cause I want you to stay with me."
The theme helps other characters in the book such as Slim for example to gain information about Lennie and his past. In this scene, George finds trust in Slim and talks about the truth of Lennie. About his past in Weed, how George treated him and how he personally feels about Lennie. As a side note John Steinback reveals that some of the smartest people may not be the best of an acquaintance.
"Guys don't need no sense to be a nice fella." Pg.40
No Lennie, I ain't mad. I never been mad, an I ain't now. That's a thing I want ya to know" Pg.106
In this scene George is putting Lennie to rest finally after all of the torturous years of running. Brotherhood is a key theme in this scene because Georges true colours are shown where he tells Lennie how much he cares for him.Sometimes we develop relationships with others that build a bond that should not be broken.But, near the end of "Of Mice and Men", we learn to find that sometimes we have to hurt the ones we love, to make it better for both sides.
