Of Mice and Men Chapter One and Six
By ulysse, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
"For a moment the place was lifeless, and then two men emerged from the path and came into the opening by the green pool. They had walked single file down the path, and even in the open one stayed behind the other." This shows who has the most power between the two characters, where George leads the way and Lennie copies his every move.
When we first meet the main characters, we're explained their appearances. It's revealed to us that they both wear denim trousers and coats, which symbolizes their wealth. "Both were dressed in denim trousers and in denim coats with brass buttons."
In the first chapter of "Of Mice and Men", Lennie is represented as a very big man, with the mind of a child. The way he behaves is very different from George, and seems to have some major difficulties with his memory, show here: "Lennie looked timidly over at him. "George?" "Yeah, what ya want?" "Where we goin', George?" The little man jerked down the brim of his hat and scowled at Lennie. "So you forgot that awready, did you? I gotta tell you again, do I? Jesus Christ you're a crazy bastard!""
In the end of the sixth chapter, Lennie seems to finally have gained a little bit of power over George, which is of course only temporary, but it still happens. Lennie has power because he is getting George to say what he wants, even though George doesn't want to say those things. He also says that he "go right off in the hills an' find a cave" if George doesn't want him there. This forces George to pretty much complement Lennie by saying he wants him there, and Lennie knew that that's what the response would be.
In the second paragraph of chapter six, a heron eats a water snake. I believe this symbolizes what is about to happen between George and Lennie, where the one with more power ends up killing the other.
George is one of the two main characters in the book, and he' a little bizarre. He often rants to Lennie about how easily he could get a long if it weren't for him, but it seems that deep down, he really cares for him. He doesn't mean a lot of the things he says, and this is shown in the sixth chapter. he becomes very emotional with Lennie, even though he is asking to be punished, which I'm sure George would usually do. Since he's planning to shoot Lennie, his true feelings show, and he's obviously crushed when he does so.
