This storyboard does not have a description.
The power shown in this chapter is different from previous sources of power seen in the book. Unsually, in this chapter Lennie is the character who holds the most power. This is because of his physical strength and size. Unfortunately, Lennie cannot control his power and ends up killing both the puppy and Curley's Wife.
The symbol for chapter 5 is a rabbit. Something we have not seen in this chapter, yet Lennie fixates on them throughout the entire book. It shows how Lennie has an obsessive personality. He craves soft things to touch and comfort him. Such as the velvet strip his Aunt Claire gave to him, or the dress of the woman who got him in trouble with the law or the the soft, smooth hair of curly's wife. When Lennie comes in contact with such things he loses himself and ultimately gets himself into trouble.
The Character Curly, was introduced earlier in the book as a trouble maker with a large ego. However, we see that when he discovers his wife dead by Lennie's hand, he shows little sadness for the loss of his wife and only thinks about killing Lennie. Showing that Curly only seeks vengeance for himself with little or no regard to the other men on the farm.
The power shown in the last chapter is from George. With the other men looking for Lennie to kill him, George realizes that the right thing to do would be for him to kill Lennie himself. Just like how Candy regrets not having killed his dog himself. George does the right thing and kills Lennie peacefully and painlessly, even though he loves him.
The symbol for the final chapter is the setting, which is important throughout the entire book. The author gives hints about upcoming events by detailing the brightness of the area and the actions of the animals near the area. For example, right before Lennie's death, the author writes about two animals and has one of them killed, hinting at future death.
George is a very smart,strong and loving character. He's smart by keeping Lennie by his side, even after many frustrating situations, because he realizes how important having a friend is. Strong, because even though he loves Lennie, he gathers up the strength to kill him himself.
