Of Mice and Men
By Markiah Love
Lennie, who had been watching, imitated George exactly. He pushed himself back, drew up his knees, embraced them, looked over to George to see whether he had it just right. He pulled his hat down a little more over his eyes, the way George's hat was. (1.10)
The friendship of lennie and gorege is very strong. They do everything together, in the part of the book where lennie and gorege are wareing the same thing They had walked in single file down the path, and even in the open one stayed behind the other. Both were dressed in denim trousers and in denim coats with brass buttons. Both wore black, shapeless hats and both carried tight blanket rolls slung over their shoulders. (1.4)
it shows that they dress like each other and they have been friends for a long time there more like brothers. loneliness is used by crooks where said that hes is all alone in the barn where he says "S'pose you didn't have nobody. S'pose you couldn't go into the bunk house and play rummy 'cause you was black. How'd you like that? S'pose you had to sit out here an' read books. Sure you could play horseshoes till it got dark, but then you got to read books. Books ain't no good. A guy needs somebody-to be near him. A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. Don't make no difference who the guy is, long's he's with you. I tell ya, I tell ya a guy gets too lonely an' he gets sick" (80).He is lonely and has know one just because of the color of his skin but in reality he's just a regular guy wanting to talk someone and have friends.
