The food is horrific, the sleeping conditions are terrible, and the place is very unsanitary. The nuns don’t show any respect for the children. For example, when Jennings wasn’t in the correct spot in line, Sister Frances took him and dragged him to his chair. “She grabbed me by the hair and dragged me to chair twenty-seven. (…)” Even though all these circumstances can make Jennings think negatively, he has held strong and maintained a positive attitude to the children and some nuns.

Within a story, animals are often portrayed as weak and helpless, unable to move beyond the control of their human masters. Other times, they serve as strong and hostile creatures. John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, however, uses animals to represent unique concepts: dreams, innocence and loneliness. Despite their innocent natures, all of the animals are met with death, creating loneliness for those around them. Animals play an important role in much of the symbolism found within the novel.
For their whole lives, they are locked in tiny, little kennels. All through the year, the weather and temperature affect them. In the winter, they are freezing cold, and in the summer, they burn up. Both of these extreme conditions can result in death. Many of the dogs are the same size as their cages, so they are squeezed in there with no room to play, or barely even move.
The debate around zoos and captive animals Like many other children, I have visited the zoo when I was younger. I have since realised that we, as humans, do not have the right to hold animals in cages and limited areas, often in regions very far from their natural habitat and climate. For example, how can you keep a polar bear in the heat of Africa? These animals spend their lives as prisoners, staying still or moving around the cage or fenced-off areas, slowly dying from boredom and frustration. They can’t mate and care for their young freely, they must eat only what man gives them, they don’t know how to defend themselves from their natural enemies, they can’t migrate.
