Of Heroes and Villains

Notes on our class discussion on heroes and villain in Of Mice and Men


Lennie: the purest of heart even though he can’t control his actions, but there are no real heroes because everyone is looking out for himself


Curley: mean for no apparent reason, likes to lord it over
Carlson: unfeeling about the dog; selfish
Farm owner: letting conditions run rampant

–>No heroes and villains, only shades.
Heros should do things for others
Villains have selfish aims but disregard needs of others
