There are three characters that illustrate the theme in the novel Of Mice and Men, these people are Candy, Crooks, and Curley’s Wife. These characters all show the same trait of loneliness, but in different perspectives. The first example of a character who is lonely is an old handyman, who is left with only one hand from the outcome of a 7wwwwwprevious accident, is left alone with his dog. In the beginning his dog was a impressive sheep herder, but over time he ages, causing him to have a bad odor. Carlson insisted to Candy that the dog needed to be put out of his misery, so Carlson shot the dog.
He says sorrowfully, " I tried to save stuff but it's mostly all burnt." The last character that I am going to talk about is Dan. Dan is the character that is caring and always avoiding war.

In his statement Giles noted that Martha stays “in a corner reading’ of a book” (Miller 1281). When she reads the books, Giles is not able to remember parts of his prayer but can remember them when the book is closed (Miller 1281). And while people may argue whether he actually meant for his wife to be hung or not, she was. He however proved himself aswell through death (Miller 1352). Giles knew that his land would be stripped from his family and bought buy Putnam if he denied or comformened his accusations of wizardry, so he refuses to give a response while he was pressed (Miller 1352).
Clearly, they both display a tempting scene but also a dark one (Opening Adverb). Obviously, they differ because in The Odyssey, Odysseus knows how to handle the temptation from the the Sirens, and in “Siren Song” the speaker talks about how men see the beached skulls but still let the tempation control, resulting in their death. Another example is when Odysseus explaining how the Sirens sound and he says, “The lovely voices in ardor appealing over the water made me crave to listen, and I tried to say ‘Untie me!’ to the crew, jerking my brows; but they bent steady the oars” (Homer 752-755). Also, in “Siren Song” the Siren talks about what she sings and explains, “This song/ is a cry for help: Help me!/ Only you, only you can,/ you are unique/ at last. Alas/ it is a boring song/ but it works every time” (Atwood 21-27).
Patrick Maloney came home to bear the bad news not expecting her to beat him over the head with a frozen leg of lamb. A similar theme is described in the short story “Jury of her Peers.” The men investigating the murder head upstairs while ordering their wives to stay downstairs explaining that they cannot help them because they don’t have the skill nor the common sense to find needed evidence. What they don’t realize is that while the women stay downstairs, Mrs. Hale and Mrs Peters find enough evidence to piece together the entire untold side of the story. But to pay their husbands back, they keep it to themselves to protect Mrs. Wright because they have sympathy for the
“That… that’s terrible man, well, I’m gonna go back to sleep now.” “NO, I really need your help on this one,” Milk Man responded. *sigh* “Fine, but you’ll really owe me for this one.” Milk Man thanked Strawberry Milk Man. They stayed up all night watching and patrolling the streets but unfortunately saw nothing. But that didn’t stop their hope, Milk Man’s at least. Strawberry Milk Man just wanted to head home.
Also I slapped him because I can not call the police because they will put Soda and him in a boys home and they would never see me again. I look like my dad but act like my mom. Ponyboy hates me a little but I know I should be a little less strict. If anyone else dies from the gang are never going to beat the socs again in the rumbles especially if the person that dies is me. I love the gang and everyone in the gang because we all stick up for each other.
He views the killing of animals as acceptable but not killing of humans. His insistence on him being different from Zaroff enables him to be on higher moral ground compared to his host. After his experiences in the forest and the constant fraying of his nerves, he might have been turned into the very person he had called a murderer. The author concludes the story with Rainsford, sleeping on the bed and notes that Rainsford never had a better one. Readers are unaware of the thoughts inside the character’s head - it may be a dreamless sleep or flashback of his earlier life.

Then a great fire was again made, and the mother said: 'Just sit there, you children, and when you are tired you may sleep a little; we are going into the forest to cut wood, and in the evening when we are done, we will come and
In the novella Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, the word sorrow is used to develop the complex personality of Lennie Small. The story is centered around two migrant farmers; Lennie, who has a mental disability, and George, who watches over and protects Lennie from getting into any trouble. With his illness, Lennie feels the constant need to feel soft things, so when he accidentally killed his puppy by petting him to rough, we became nothing short form an emotional wreck. After Lennie realized the horrible mistake he had made, he came to the shocking realization that George may not let him tend to the rabbits that they hope to own in the future. After a failed attempt to bury his puppy, Lennie “rocked himself back and forth in his sorrow” (Steinbeck 85).
He didn’t care if the cowboys thought he was too young. He would work hard, and stay out of the way. He was done with that little town, its sad people, and all the sorrow that had plagued his life. He relished the idea of being free. He could do nothing about the aching pain of how his dad died…in a self imposed sleep from too much of the sleeping salts, and a fallen candle that set off the fire.
