George tells the boss that Lennie got kicked in the head by a horse as a little kid and that’s why he is slow, so Lennie asks him if it is true and George says that it would be a good thing and it would “save everybody a hell of a lot of trouble.” (Steinbeck 23). Since George said this it makes it seem like he doesn’t want to spend that much time with Lennie. Over all, George has a tendency of putting Lennie down intentionally. In chapters two and three George is really quick to judge Curley’s wife on the ranch. From the minute George sees Curley’s wife he already has a bad impression of her.
The mouse in the poem worked hard to build its nest in preparation for the winter it was to endure in the future. The man plowing was preparing a field for cultivation in the future. Both the man and the mouse’s plan was destroyed; the mouse’s plan destroyed by the man, and the man’s plan destroyed by the fast approaching winter. If one looks further into this piece, past the obviousness of a man talking to a mouse, they should begin to realize the reality that Burns interlaced among the lines of “To a Mouse.” The book Of Mice and Men, written by John Steinbeck, is based off of Burns’ poem “To a Mouse.” The two literary pieces are alike in that they demonstrate how one’s plans for the future can be demolished. In the poem, the mouse’s plans were crushed by the man and the man’s plans were destroyed by the swift coming of winter.
It was through this work that he acquired much of his material for his novel “Of Mice and Men” Working on a ranch alongside the Migrant workers introduced him to the wicked side of migrant life and the darker side of human nature. He saw into the harsher aspects of the loneliness and isolation that many of the workers lived with. “Of Mice and Men” was actually first written for the stage and then adapted into the novel we know today. John Steinbeck is also known for other great works such as “The Grapes of Wrath” “Tortilla Flats” “The Red Pony” and “East Of Eden”. “Of Mice and Men” is a novel that describes the life of George Milton and his best friend Lennie Small whose mental disability gives him the mind of a small child.

Another characteristic was using the children as a means of control to potentially get Fran back with him. This is the scene when Mickey went over Francine’s mother house and said he would burst the door in her face if she didn’t let him get the kids. Once again James got his way because Fran comes back to him for the kids. Francine is isolated by James controlling ways, for an example Mickey asked her where she had got her new ring from and she told him she went into town; after telling him this he slapped her in front of the company and she isolated herself. Fran was also very loyal to him, but James didn’t seem to think so and if he did know he made sure she stayed that way because he beat her for smiling and looking when a partner of his told him Fran was pretty.
In a letter, she accuses three of them to have raped and killed her. The letter is found by Hannah Trevor, who decides to investigate because Daniel Josselyn, the father of her illegitimate daughter is one of the three men accused. Everything seems to prove his guiltiness, since the marks on Anthea’s neck match the imprint of his three-fingered hand. Another murder happens and Daniel is accused again, because the victim was killed with his sword. The murderer is actually William Quaid, who killed the man because he knew too much about Anthea’s plans.
This fate/prophecy is ironic for Louis because he ends up going past the semetary, and burying his daughter’s cat, as well as his son. Louis had to find out about the supernatural powers of the burial ground the hard way. 2nd argument: During the second meeting with the witches’, the apparition of the crowned child says to Macbeth “Macbeth will not die until Birnam wood will come near Dunsinane Hill”(Act 4 Scene 1) This prophesy is ironic for Macbeth because he thinks it will never happen but in reality it happens. Yet, the events of Ellie’s Cat and Louis previously talking to Ellie about death came into play when Church dies. Ellie, as well as Louis, had no idea that church was going to get hit by a truck.
The novel begins with Lennie who has a mouse in his pocket; George then takes it out and throws it away, making Lennie get into a temper. George takes Lennie to a ranch where he tells him to say nothing as he feels if he lets him speak he would muck everything up. He then tells Lennie that everything would be easier if he wasn’t around. Lennie is terrified that George will leave him because Lennie totally relies on George. George knows he won’t leave him but likes to threaten him.
For example, Lennie tells Curley’s wife the George has told hin to “stay here and not get in no trouble”(68). The manner in which George talks to Lennie is akin to the way in which a parent might talk to a child. George also calls Lennie a “crazy bastard”(6) when telling him what to do during their job interview with the boss of the ranch. The individuals on the ranch also exclude Lennie from activities by not letting him go to town with them and making him
With me being his son I know that is a very important quality. He helps me through my problem which can be great.
