George and lennie

Unlike Lennie, George does not see their dream in terms of rabbits; instead, he sees it in a practical way. This act of sacrifice is selfish but unfortunately with the amount of abuse and harm that Lennie has already caused, George sees that he has no choice but to end his best friend's life.

George's choice of shooting Lennie in the back of the head behind the ear is a direct link to the shooting of Curley's dog earlier in the book.

Candy finds them and they discuss their plans for the farm with Crooks, who cannot resist asking them if he can hoe a garden patch on the farm albeit scorning its possibility.

The companionship of George and Lennie is the result of loneliness. Curley's wife makes another appearance and flirts with the men, especially Lennie.

George keeps the dream out in front of the huge man as a goal: An aging ranch handyman, Candy lost his hand in an accident and worries about his future on the ranch.

Of Mice and Men

He constantly reprimands the farm hands and accuses some of fooling around with his wife. As George discloses to Slim, the incident that sealed the bond between the duo came when he told his utterly compliant friend to jump in the rushing Sacramento River and was then forced to save the huge man from drowning.

Why does George kill Lennie in Of Mice and Men?

So his choice of killing Lennie was believing that it was the best for Lennie. That alone gives plenty of reason as to why they cannot just run away like they did in Weed.

Of Mice and Men

A "jerkline skinner," the main driver of a mule team and the "prince of the ranch". I worked alongside him for many weeks. That was the way George thought was best for his best friend, and so he shot him.

He kills his Lennie both for his own act of selfishness, to not be burdened by his stifled friend. It is only 30, words in length. Steinbeck presents this as "something that happened" or as his friend coined for him "non-teleological thinking" or "is thinking", which postulates a non-judgmental point of view.

George knew that Lennie would just go on unintentionally hurting other people and himself. Although he doesn't seem to be aware of his own strengths, he is highly destructive and poses a threat to most people around him.

This is plainly an expression of wishful thinking. George takes care of Lennie and makes the decisions for him. George also uses Lennie as an excuse for the menial hardships that he must endure. A young, pretty woman, who is mistrusted by her husband.

By the same token, just as Lennie needs mice and pups and rabbits to take care of, George needs Lennie to tend. While George can be very rational and thoughtful, he also gets frustrated and angry with Lennie because the big man cannot control his strength or actions.

Got sore because the boss had fired his pal and stuck a pitchfork right through his stomach. A blind dog who is described as "old", "stinky", and "crippled", and is killed by Carlson. This is a style technique Steinbeck uses which is to force the reader to reflect.

He is innocent and mentally handicapped with no ability to understand abstract concepts like death. George kills Lennie by shooting him in the back of the head to save him from a more painful death at the hands of Curley, who has vowed.
