Of Mice And Men

Essay "Of Mice and Men" was written bye John Steinbeck and is a fictional
book. "Of Mice and Men" is a book about two life long friends named George
and Lennie. They go to a farm to do some farm work after having to run away from
their old town Weed. In their new farm, they meet many people including Curley,
a little boxer guy who hates big guys like Lennie, and Curley’s wife, who is a
tart. Lennie and George have many grand adventures on the farm, but one day
while George is out playing horseshoes, Lennie accidentally kills Curley’s
wife. Lennie runs away but when the guys come back to find Curley’s wife dead,

George is forced to kill his friend. The four people responsible for Lennie’s
death are George, Curley’s wife, Lennie, and Curley. The person most
responsible for Lennie’s death is George. The reasons why I think this is
mainly because George shot Lennie in the end of the book. Also George left

Lennie alone in the barn giving Curley’s wife a chance to come and talk to
him, and that is when Lennie killed her. George should have given Lennie more
instructions on what he was supposed to do while George was out with his
friends. The second most responsible for Lennie’s death is Curley’s wife.

The reasons why I think this is because she provoked Lennie into talking to her
and into petting her hair. She was lonely and wanted someone to talk to, but she
also was very flirtatious with Lennie. When she yelled she scared Lennie which
made him hold on to her neck harder. Curley’s wife shouldn’t have been
flirting and seeking other men while she had a husband. The third most
responsible person for Lennie’s death is Lennie himself. The reason I think
this is because Lennie killed Curley’s wife, which made George have to kill

Lennie. He also has no control over his strength since he was retarded, which is
another reason why he died. And more importantly he disobeyed George by talking
to Curley’s wife, which George told him absolutely not to do. The last
responsible person for Lennie’s death was Curley. Curley was very mean to

Lennie and was picking on him for only the reason that Lennie was bigger than

Curley. Curley was also very possessive over his wife, which lead her to look
for other men. He treated his wife like a possession, which she also didn’t
like and made her talk Lennie. In conclusion, the four people responsible for

Lennie’s death are George, Lennie, Curley’s wife, and Curley. As I said
before in each of their paragraphs, every person had a little bit to do with his
death. Like how George shot Lennie, Curley’s wife lead Lennie on, a man too
dumb to know what to do, Lennie gave in to the temptations, and Curley lead his
wife to lead on Lennie.
