Lenny and George from Of Mice and Men are two characters looking for a place to lay their hats They had been in a lot of trouble in the past mainly to the misfortune of Lennys incompetence Many things contributed to the critics opinion of Lenny and Georges loyalty One of the biggest reasons for their being loyal or not is when George shoots Lenny many of the critics use this as a comparison Some critics understand that Lenny is not very bright and George is not much smarter therefore their relationship is just coincidental but others believe that the two characters are very loyal to each other Desmond MacCarthy believes that Lenny and George are very loyal to each other MacCarthy says Like a child Lenny loves to make George repeat over and over again the story of how happy they will some day be together in a shack of their own340 When he says this he believes that when George tells Lenny the story George does it because he has feelings toward Lenny and is nothing but loyal to him Mostly however MacCarthy refers to the part in the story in which George shoots Lenny MacCarthy explains Lenny flies to the place where George had told him to go if he ever got into trouble And George finds and shoots him while telling him to look where the little house stands which had so nearly become their own340 This converts to Lenny and Georges loyalty because why would George tell Lenny the story he tells him many times before when he shoots him This shows that George cares very much for Lenny and knows that if he does not shoot Lenny then someone else will or give him a slow painful death MacCarthy believes that Lenny and George are very loyal to each other Peter Lisca although believes that Lenny and George were not loyal to each other and they were just together
