  • 12. George and Lennie’s relationship contrasts with the loneliness of other characters in the novel. What George says to Lennie shows they are different from other characters, ‘We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us’ This shows that they have not only got someone to talk to, to have conversations with, they have also got someone that care about them as a person emphasised by the use of the word ‘damn’. Because their relationship contrasts so strongly with the lonely characters in the novel, such as Curley’s wife and Crooks who both complain about how they have no one to talk to, it amplifies the strength of their relationship and shows what great friends they are. The tragic outcome of the novel seems to suggest an inevitability to loneliness if people are unable to understand each other and adds to the desolate message Steinbeck is trying to convey.

I think I knowed we’d never do her. He usta  Evidence like to hear about it so much I got to thinking maybe we would." (5.78) Steinbeck’s choice of language at this point  P Consideration of Steinbeck’s craft - is especially poignant. George’s hesitation as he speaks purpose to Candy, shown by the ellipsis, is emphasised by the use  E - Analysis of of the adverb ‘softly’, suggesting the way in which punctuation George’s painful self-knowledge is something that he can  E - Analysis of part of speech barely admit to himself, let alone out loud. ‘softly’ also  suggests George’s gentleness towards Lennie, and the  E -Suggestion of alternative way of ways in which he feels almost broken, far from the ‘sharp- reading featured…quick’ character described in chapter 1. It  E - Links to earlier quotation prepares us for his silence and reluctance to blame  Links to later chapter Lennie in chapter 6, as he finally admits that his dream is  DEVELOPS POINT out of reach.
