“Got no teeth he’s all stiff, he ain’t no good for you Candy” Before winning the fight and quickly says to the dog “come, on, boy.” This tells us by Carlson saying “Got no teeth he’s all stiff” tells us that Carlson thinks that if something is old and can’t take care of it’s self it should be killed. How Candy is fighting back tells us that he knows that if the dog goes, he’ll go next because he's also becoming old and this presents on how society treats people badly because of their age. In Crooks’s little shed Curly’s wife gets mad at him for telling her to leave. “Crooks seemed to grow smaller and he pressed himself against the wall. “Yes ma’am” “Well, you keep your place when nigger.
William used to work on the ranch with Slim and all of the other workers.

Lennie got scared and lost control grabbing Curley’s hand when he swung and wouldn’t let go crushing the bones in Curley’ hand “Looks to me like every bone in his hand is a bust”. Later in the story Lennie is in a barn inspecting a dead puppy he used to take care of. The story doesn’t give much detail of what happened but Lennie apparently “bounced” the puppy too hard killing it. He starts to yell at the puppy things like “Why do you got to get killed?” “You ain’t so little as mice. I didn’t bounce you hard.”.
Because of Lennie's mental disability, he is required to be dependent on George. In the beginning of the novel as George and Lennie are making their way to the migrant farm, Lennie has a dead mouse in his pocket. Lennie feels that if he were to tell George concerning the mouse, he would yell at Lennie and be angry with him for his wrong doing. Ultimately, the more times George gets furious or impatient with Lennie, Lennie believes that George will not allow his dream of owning a farm in the future to come true (Owens). Likewise, Lennie's lack of consciousness from determining right from wrong, denounces his self character, leading to his own death.
All the men were in the bunkhouse with Candy when Carlson brought up the idea to put Candy’s dog out of its “misery”. “At last Carlson said, “If you want me to I’ll put the old devil out of his misery right now and get it over with. Ain’t nothing left for him. (47). Candy’s dog who was once an spectacular sheep herder but is now toothless, horrible smelling and brittle from age supports Candy’s fears.
As readers our first encounter with Lennie is dehumanizing right away. The novel states, “he walked heavily, dragging his feet a little, the way a bear drags his paws” (Steinbeck 2). Steinbeck compares him to a bear stating his hands are not humanly, they are animal like. Steinbeck choosing to distinguish the thought of Lennie ever being normal right away reveals he never had a chance to begin with. A chance to achieve his dream.
Lennie Small is a rather large and mentally disabled man. His mental disability is what ultimately kills him in the end, as he has no control over his immense strength. This is shown through the many mice that he had killed, which is proven during Lennie and George’s conversation about mice. Lennie talked about his Aunt Clara, his mother figure in a sense, and how she always used to give him mice. George proceeded to tell Lennie “An’ she stopped givem ‘em to ya.
On the other hand, we can note that Harding’s speech is flawed, since he merely divides society into two categories: the rabbits and the wolf. In this way, Kesey displays the lack of individuality in society. What about other
He sent his subordinate Squealer to explain why Napoleon done what he has done to the other animals. Squealer told it to be a masterful plan to get rid of Napoleon’s rival through what he called, “tactics, comrades, tactics!’ skipping around his tail with a merry laugh. The animals were not sure what the word meant, but Squealer spoke so persuasively, and the three dogs who happened to be with him growled so threateningly, that they accepted his explanation without further questions.” The inhabitants of the farm could not think for themselves as they physically incapable of doing so. What really makes knowledge and education as dangerous as it is on Animal Farm is the intelligence of the masses. If the masses were not as dependent on their leaders they would not have been taken advantage of, or at least to the extent the pigs got away with.
The pose writer of this piece “Of Mice and Men” reproduces closure to his conclusive chapter doing exactly this, a tie back ending. As well as we were told on the first chapter "Lennie if you jus' happen to get in trouble like you always done before, I want you to come right here an' hide in the brush… Hide in the brush till I come for you" just here Lennie is during this last chapter, he got on a misfortuned accident. Throughout the story Lennie is represented as a clumsy strong man who doesn't recognize or even know about his strength, he often kills soft thing since he pets them way too hard, this action and conduct repeats at least four times during the novella. Lennie’s killing habit foreshadows the events of this penultimate chapter leading to the consequences of the last chapter. The last scene of Lennie and George displays their usual relationship Lennie committing mistakes and George being mad at him.
