An Ending Left Unresolved If ever there was a novel that depicted the true meaning of friendship and true emotional strain of loss then it would be Of Mice and Men a literary marvel created by the inner most thoughts of John Steinbeck Steinbeck author of The Grapes of Wrath is thought of to be one of the most talented authors in literary history Therefore it is without doubt that his work is to be criticized and questioned such is the case with the ending in Of Mice and Men It is said to be to bold and on the edge of horrific and shocking I myself happen to agree with Steinbecks daring choice to kill off Lennie Many people consider the final chapter in the story to be cruel harsh murderous and savage but in actuality it was the best thing that George could do for his only true friend Because of the fact that Lennie killed a young woman and was mentally handicapped he was sure to be executed not necessarily through the judicial system If the workers were to find him he was sure to be tortured and hung Georges rash and insane decision to kill Lennie was a decision made purely on the basis of love George loved Lennie with every inch of his soul but could not bear to move to another town again because eventually he would be doing it all over again in a few short weeks He knew the only way to truly end the madness of being hated by all was to relieve himself from the root of the problem Lennie Lennie wasnt a complete lost cause he was smart in his own way He was a strong hard worker that only wanted happiness in the end he received eternal bliss He was much like a child in many ways he had to be told over and over again what not to do
