When they get to the ranch looking for the job the one that talks is always George, because Lennie have an issue in his brain that’s why he acts as a little kid. George talks to the owner of the ranch and he told him that Lennie is his cousin and his mother left him so he have to take care of the poor Lennie. I make the analysis and I get to the conclusion that mice in the title, and in the book are Lennie because mice can’t make decision by itself. I compare Lennie like the mice that the scientist uses in the laboratories to make experiments on them, because the nervous system is similar to a human one. The scientists use the mice in the laboratory to make experiments on them with many things, like medicine to see how they react to it.

Steinbeck showed is vision through the book “Of Mice and Men” and Burns showed his through the poem “To a Mouse”. Both men showed their views in very different ways but were able to get the same point across and show the same message.

In the poem “To a Mouse” author, Robert Burns, does a great job in putting through the main idea to his readers. The original poem is written in old Scottish
Part 1: In my words, I think that it means that no matter how well you plan something, you should always expect the unexpected. Maybe if you think you’ve done all you can for something to go right, but it ends up messing up as planned. The reason the speaker is comparing mice to men is because in the story, if you really look into it, the author is comparing the human world with the animal world about George and Lennie. Mice and men are similar through out this story because if you actually sit and think about it, you’ll realize that mice are just the same, because they are living beings on this earth as well. In the end of the book they all end up the same, because George wants to own his own farm, Lennie wants to have his own rabbits,
The explanation in paragraph 2 is more effective because… Discuss with your partner: Analyse the following quotes, explaining what they show about Lennie’s character. You do not have to use the whole quote – you should select the language you think is necessary. Slowly, like a terrier who doesn’t want to bring a ball to its master, Lennie approached, drew back, approached again. George snapped his fingers sharply, and at the sound Lennie laid the mouse in his hand. “I’d pet ‘em, and pretty soon they bit my fingers and I pinched their heads a little and then they was dead – because they was so little” They sat by the fire and filled their mouths with beans and chewed mightily.

Mock Exam – 'Of Mice and Men' – In the novel, 'Of Mice and Men', John Steinbeck presents Curley as a mean and unkind character, who likes to show his authority on the ranch. This is especially shown in the extract. In the extract, Steinbeck presents Curley as someone who wants to follow in his father's footsteps – to be in control of the ranch. 'Like the boss, he wore high-heeled boots.' This shows that Curley wants to separate himself from the other casual ranch hands.
Capturing Cruelty in the Opening Scene of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men The English author and historian Edward Gibbon once wrote that, “The works of man are impotent to the assaults of nature.” Nowhere is this philosophical perspective better captured than in the John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. The novel tells the story of two migrant agricultural workers, George Milton and Lennie Small, during the Great Depression in 1930’s California. A central theme in the novel is man’s cruelty to one another and how it drives them to hurt other human beings as in the case of Curley’s viscous attack on the mentally-handicapped Lennie. In the opening scene of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, the author establishes a contrast between innocence and cruelty through the use of expansive descriptions of nature, symbolism and characterization. This opening dichotomy is vital to an understanding of the theme of cruelty and the larger structure of the novel in light of its violent and disturbing end.
