Friendship and Loyalty in Of Mice and Men by Kaitlyn Read on Prezi
MOST – Will be able to explore the relationship between George and Lennie If you're targeted a B then think of two types of friendship your quote fits into. Analysing the relationship between George and Lennie in this to emphasize the beauty of friendships and highlight how important it is for. I think George is far too hard on Lennie throughout the novel, and a better person wouldn't scare or hurt a friend with difficulties like Lennie has.
Thus the reliance of each of the main characters on one another emphasises how important the friendship is in keeping both them and the novella together.
The friendship is also portrayed by Steinbeck as he is opposing the idea of people working just by themselves.
They got no family. This is despite the fact it would have much likely to be easier during the time of the Great Depression to be by yourself and have a sustinent way of life. Yet Steinbeck emphasises friendship by looking at how unhappy the people who are by themselves are. They are able to share the dream between one another which makes it a serious possibility.
The circular narrative which then destroys the dream only makes it more tragic as it seems as if they had a possibility but there never was. This is what Steinbeck uses to undermine the idea of the American Dream for it is not even realistic despite co-operation. Thus due to the economic depression, Steinbeck shows that friendship is important to be able to cope through the difficult times The friendship is also important in comparing to other characters in the novella that are depicted as lonely as well as being the vulnerable in society.
The fact that she has no-one to be with is what leads her to acting in a promiscuous manner and eventually this is also a cause of her death. Thus the strive to be happy without a friend can be fatal.
Candy opens up the them, and dares to hope on this unlikely dream. I had him so long. Had him since he was a pup. I herded sheep with him.

Lennie and his relationship with other characters
Nobody on the farm likes Curley, and they only tolerate him because his father owns the ranch. Lennie doesn't have any anger towards Curley, but Curley misinterpreted the death of his wife as "revenge" and he wanted to kill Lennie, and wanted to do it in very creative and colourful ways. They call her this because she teases them with sexual innuendos, and she does nothing to contribute to the life of the farm. She isn't even given a proper name, even though she is such a big part of the story, and is the only woman on the farm.
