    Companionship is a commonly addressed theme in Of Mice and Men. In the first few chapters, those who met travellers Lennie and George would address their relationship, as it is made clear that most ranch workers would not travel together. In Chapter 4, the concept of other characters needing companionship is explored. Crooks, the only black man living on the ranch, lives alone. When Lennie decides to enter his room, Crooks is wary; he is suspicious of Lennie, as nobody usually visits him. When Lennie persists on entering he is allowed in by Crooks, who softens up. Immediately, he decides to converse with Lennie, seemingly forgetting that he initially didn’t want to invite him in. Realizing Lennie’s forgetful personality, Crooks starts to talk…

    One of the most important themes in this story is emotion and feelings of the characters which are important attributes of the philosophy of existentialism. “...many existentialists tended to stress the significance of emotions or feelings, in so far as they were presumed to have a less culturally or intellectually mediated relation to one’s individual and separate existence”. This quote very much reminds me of Rodney and Charlottes relationship as they seem to be the most emotional out of all of the characters. Their whole relationship is grounded on them trying to kill each other, as Charlotte says “it keeps the relationship alive” (Panych, 42). Perhaps a love hate relationship, but it seems although they’d rather be together then with out each other.…

George takes the mouse from Lennie and throws it into the bushes.
