Quoyle writes a piece regarding how sad it is to have this slow transition from grassroots to industry occurring. The editor, who’s in favor of the oil industry, edits his article to show support for the industry, and prints it.

No longer would Quoyle be encroached on, at least at work.

At the beginning of the chapter, Steinbeck writes in a matter-of-fact tone. This can be seen in the following line, “Bring 'em out. Pile 'em, up. Load 'em in the wagon”. There an emotional disconnect between the speaker and what is happening in their life, like the speaker is in a state of shock.
Steward said a lot of little words to try to persuade Mrs. Lewis, he said things like, “Are you sure you wouldn 't care to think about it for a day or so?” and, “I’ll leave my card.” (Matheson 105) This is how I think Mr. steward foreshadowed the ending.

It has even gone so far that George has a plan if Lennie messes up again or makes another mistake, repeating to Lennie multiple times saying, "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" (Steinbeck 15). George’s stress and pressure he puts on himself and the anger and ferocity he has inside has turned George into a
In the ranch where George and Lennie are staying, there is a bully, called Curley. Lennie was frightened by Curley’s demeanor, so he asked George if they can go to other ranches, but George told him that they have to stay here until they get a stake.

As they adapt to their new ranch, they experience many obstacles and meet new people. As Lennie is a mentally slower but physically strong and George is intelligent but physically weaker, they benefit off of each other's strengths and weaknesses. Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men reveals the harmful psychological effects that alienation, whether it is self alienation or forced alienation, may generate through the characterization of Curleyś wife, Crooks, and Candy. Like many of the other characters, Crooks is forced into isolation. Crooks experiences force alienation from his fellow workers on the ranch, causing him to become obscure and astringent.

This living arrangement has been a barrier to treatment, on some level, as it continues to be a source of contention between Adams family and this provider. To be clear, it appears that there is a level of resentment on the part of Adams family because it is their belief that I am the reason their family cannot reside under one roof and, “be a family again”.
