The Power of Acceptance
" But not all of us! An' for what reason? Because... since I got one to look after me, and you got me to look after you, and that's why" (Steinbeck 14). While Lennie Tiny unveils to be the strongest guy on his ranch in Salinas Valley, various readers presume his life would be a breeze; however , just for this shapeless experienced man lifestyle becomes a challenge when the weaknesses of his character are shown, triggering many issues to come up. Lennie locates motivation inside the little items and preserves through everything. In David Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men Lennie is a heart-capturing character who also overcomes his irreversible conditions while fighting through his horrendous clashes, keeping viewers and himself motivated at the chance of 1 day having a better life.
Even as Mr. Small is recognized to be most physically fit figure on the hacienda, readers interpret Lennie because the the most fragile soul of them all. With a mental disability suspending over his head, Lennie struggles communicating with his co-office workers and trying to know his activities and their consequences. With George being his primary care taker, he or she must be patient and talk to him as one might talk to a kid. " Very well, look. Lennie- if you jus' happen to get involved trouble as if you always performed before, I need you to arrive right here an' hide in the brush... Could you remember that? However, you ain't gonna get in no difficulty, because if you do, I won't allow you to tend the rabbits" (Steinbeck 15-16). Together with his struggle to comprehend diverse occasions this individual always generally seems to forget the situations that arise. " We forgot. I tried to remember. Honest to God I had, George" (Steinbeck 4). Due to the struggle of his handicap and his insufficient memory skills many disputes begin to happen.
One of the physical conflicts Lennie has is the fight Curley pushes in him. Curley victimizes him and begins to beat him up. Lennie eventually battles back and does a lot of damage to Curley's hands. Lennie does not protect him self at first...
