Of Mice and Men, Day 2

We opened the discussion by talking about whether George is good or bad, as well as the motivation behind his actions towards Lennie.
Robby started the actual discussion by stating that Lennie and George have a weird relationship. Kelli thought of it as a brother/brother relationship. Lennie is more of a little brother in the way he idolizes George. Erica suggested that it’s more of a child/parent relationship. Zoe, on the other hand, saw it as a pet/owner thing.
Matt suggested a brother/sister relationship for whatever reason.
George is scared of what everyone else will think about him.
Both characters are predictable in their own special way.
Lennie is conflicted because he has manly desires but the mental capacity of a four year old.
