Another scene that showed foreshadowing was the part where Candy’s dog is shot because the dog is said to be “useless”. Lennie does something very bad when he kills Curley’s wife on accident because he breaks her neck. This was a much unforeseen event that would affect Lennie and George’s lives. George would later have to kill his closest and best friend. This would cause George to have to live alone now and make his money by himself.
However Candy later regrets letting Carlson shoot his dog for him as he says ….. “I shouldn’t ought to of let no stranger shoot my dog”- The shooting of the dog foreshadows the death of lennie. Candy’s final comment about the dog truly influences George’s decision to kill Lennie. Later George will shoot Lennie to spare him from the unbridled violence of candy. For both, death is to be seen as a merciful release.
Curleys wife obsession with herself lead to her death The connection between Curley’s wife and Lennie is that when curley’s wife walked into the barn but George said that Lennie is not aloud to talk to her like men on the ranch Curley’s wife also suffers from lack of attention and love also having to sacrifice her plans for Curley Lennie starts to talk about the farm and the rabbits and says that he like to pet soft thing then there is a connection between Curley’s wife ends in tragedy just as he kills Curley’s wife and his dreams Curley’s wife has also got a strong connection to Slim because she was the only girl on the ranch and she never saw Curley so she gave the other men the eye flirtation but the ranch men but the flirt back if they did( 1) they would be fired(2)they would suffer because of Curley temper so yes they all try and keep away from her but Slim talks to her everyone looks up to him even Curley looks up to him he’s like the boss he is an expert in his job so everyone admired
This follows on to the death of the lady, due to Lennie stroking her hair, gradually petting harder and harder, tragically breaking her neck. For George, this only came down to one decision, to shoot Lennie himself. Lennie was on the run; after earlier in the story being told that if he had been involved in any trouble, to meet at a certain place. Lennie fortunately remembered this, resulting in George eventually accompanying him once again. George decided to kill Lennie himself because he knew that if Curley found the beast, he would instantly shoot him.
Why’n’t you shoot him, Candy?’” Another man, Slim, also agrees with Carlson’s beliefs. “‘Carl’s right, Candy. That dog ain’t no good to himself. I wisht somebody’d shoot me if I got old an’ a cripple.’” (Steinbeck, 44-45) The men all agree that the dog is old and has suffered enough, living through the last days of his life. They all want to end the dog’s misery by killing him.
An example of this is that he thinks Candy’s dog should be shot because it’s old and smelly. He also thinks that Candy could have one of Slim’s puppies instead. However he can’t see that Candy might have an emotional attachment to his dog. For me this suggests that Carlson is insensitive and doesn’t care about anyone other than himself and he believes that he should always get what he wants. Another reason
But because he was distracted he couldn’t do anything. Even though it wasn’t his fault he felt guilty and his thoughts would overcome him. An example is “Later we heard that Strunk died somewhere over Chu Lai, which seemed to relive Dave Jensen of an enormous weight.” Dave Jensen feels guilty for not killing Lee Strunk and putting him out of his misery. It seems as if the soldiers are in a damned if you don’t situation. Jensen would probably have felt guilty if he killed Strunk as per their original pact, but not killing his friend made him feel guilty, too.
Johnny wants his family to accept him, he want to be loved by his parent. He has never gotten that love because his mother didn’t love him and his father was a drunken alcoholic, who abused him. He seeks acceptance from the gang, and although stabbing Bob, which is completely out of character, as Ponyboy says “Johnny is the quite one”. (chp.1). He does it to protect Pony and so the gang would love him more and let him be a part of it.
Dally lost his innocence at the age of 10 when he killed a man, and Johnny lost his innocence at the age of 16 when he killed Bob Sheldon. “I killed him. I killed that boy”, Johnny Cade. Sometimes, people don’t even have to do something wrong to lose their innocence, they just have to witness something of wrongdoing to lose their innocence. Ponyboy just had to see Johnny kill Bob and that was enough to make him lose his innocence.
Hasn’t she gotten the hint yet? The answer is no, due to the fact that she was killed shortly after finding out about the dog. After seeing how violent and uncontrollable Lennie could be and what he was capable of, she should’ve taken the hint. Curley’s Wife decided not to take Lennie’s warning. Lennie tells her, “I like to pet nice things with my
