Plan Not sure - Writer doesnt say Two reasons - Selfish wants to live own life Help Lenniesave Lennie Why does George kill Lennie in the novel Of Mice and Men There are various reasons that explain why George killed Lennie in the novel but the author doesnt give a reason Instead the author leaves this to readers imagination George could have been selfish and killed Lennie so he could live his own life Maybe George feels like Lennies parents For example when Lennie touched a womans dress they had to move out of the country and start life again For this reason perhaps George killed Lennie because he didnt want to take care of Lennie The other option of why George killed Lennie was that he could have been thinking of Lennies punishment and about Lennie being hanged for the murder of Curleys wife George could have stopped Lennie from the pain of being hanged by shooting Lennie in the back of the head just as Curley had done to Candys dog Perhaps the reader can understand that George is being cruel to be kind For example earlier in the novel George threw away the dead rat and shouted at Lennie for Lennies own good but George did not show this in a nice way to Lennie Therefore we can conclude that George was either a bad person who could have killed Lennie for himself or he could have been saving his friend from a painful death
