Riley Pingree English 4 Mrs. Bush 16 November 2019 Of Mice and Men The interpretation I have chosen as my own is that “George and Lennie demonstrate that no matter how bad things get, friendship makes life worth living. George’s selfless service to Lennie and Lennie’s childlike innocence gives their friendship special meaning. George’s final act of friendship is allowing Lennie to see his dream before shooting him in the back of the head”. Since I had read Mice and Men, I am convinced that George and Lennie’s friendship was real. George knew Lennie from childhood, and most would think that George’s friendship was pity based. Not only do I think pity plays a part in this unique friendship but Lennie has optimism and innocence when George did not, ultimately George needed Lennie just as much as Lennie needed George. In Of Mice and Men, the aspects that make this bond so strong include pity, optimism & innocence, and dependability.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
