The poem “To a Mouse” by Robert Burns is obviously about a man talking to a field mouse whose nest he has just destroyed with a plow. The man feels bad for destroying the mouse’s home and apologizes for what has happened. The deeper meaning of the poem is that no matter how much preparation goes into planning for the future, fate, or even someone else’s plan, can get in the way and demolish your plans. Burns compares the mouse and the man to one another in saying, “The best-laid schemes of mice and men/ Go often astray,” (Burns 39-40). The mouse in the poem worked hard to build its nest in preparation for the winter it was to endure in the future.
The mice then decide to immigrate to America. In Animal Farm, the humans come back and try to take over control, but in An American Tail the mice do not return to fight. The final way I found they were different was that in An American Tail, the youngest mouse gets lost from its family while immigrating to America. The mouse gets taken in by other mice, but he tries very hard and searches constantly for his family. In Animal Farm, no animals get lost, and they also don’t take any animals in.
Another scene in the book that was different from the movie was when George and the rest of the guys except for Lennie, Candy, and Crooks go into town. In the book Lennie is in the barn playing with his pup and then walks into Crook’s room in the barn. They start talking about Crook’s childhood and how he’s not used to the kind of racism. Candy comes in and talks to Lennie about the rabbits they will have on their own land. Curley’s Wife comes in and talks about how she never get to talk to anyone and how she’s lonely.
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.
Crooks is angry at this invasion of privacy, as he is not allowed the option of entering the men's bunkhouse. Lennie asks Crooks if he can stay because everyone else went into town tonight. Lennie hovers around the doorway, talking about his puppy, and Crooks gives in and lets Lennie come into his room. Only Candy has stayed home, and he is sitting in the bunkhouse making calculations about their farm. Lennie starts to talk about the rabbits they're going to get, but Crooks just thinks he's crazy.

‘Of Mice and Men’- Crooks essay In this section Lennie, Candy and Crooks are in Crooks’ room. Crooks lives by himself because he is the only black man on the ranch. He is bookish and likes to keep his room neat, but he has been so beaten down by loneliness and prejudicial treatment of that he is now suspicious of any kindness he receives, when Lennie enters his room, he soon realizes that Lennie is mentally disabled and find pleasure in tormenting Lennie about what would happen if George didn’t return, this reveals a mean streak in crooks that he developed from being alone. Candy then comes in and he and Lennie accidentally reveal to him their dream of the ranch. In the extract we see that Crooks is very cynical towards the American dream, “‘you guys is just kiddin’ yourself.’” Crooks dismisses the dream as nothing more than something that is just in the heads of these workers.
Of Mice and Men The title “Of Mice and Men” is appropriate for this book because in the poem it says “And leave us naught but grief and pain”, and this book will bring you grief and pain at the end. Lennie was a big , not bright fellow. He loved to play with small animals such as mice and puppies etc. George, Lennie’s guider, didn’t like or want Lennie to play with mice cause he know he would kill him with his big hands and try to hide them while they’re dead in his pocket. George had to always look after Lennie because he was always getting into some sort of trouble with things.
