I think that the author was trying to say that the dog, like candy, is old and people think worthless. I also think that the author was trying to foreshadow something bad happening to George and Lennie. This is because I have noticed that Candy’s relationship with his dog is alike the relationship of George and Lennie. Since someone else shot Candy’s dog, I think that maybe George or Lennie might ask someone to hurt the other person. Or maybe since Candy said that he should have killed his dog, George may hurt Lennie and vice versa.
George killed lennie because if he didn’t, Curley would have made him suffer. The main reason George killed Lennie is because Lennie would have killed somebody again. And the evidence is clearly there, the pet mice that he killed, the poor puppy that he accidently hit to hard, and especially Curley’s wife. He almost killed the girl in weed if he had gone any further. The sad thing is is that he doesn't know how strong he really is, nor does he know what he’s done wrong in the first place.
This here ain’t no setup. I’m scared. You gonna have trouble with that Curley guy, I seen that kind before. He was kinda feelin you out. He figures he’s got you scared and he’s gonna take a sock at you the first chance he gets,’” (Page 29 of Of Mice and Men).
Throughout this chapter, we figure that George is tired of taking care of Lennie and doesn’t want to run away anymore. For example, Candy was the first to find out of the death so he retrieves George first. Candy then says,”What done it? George replies,”Ain’t you got any idear? I should of knew.” Not only do we know that Lennie killed Curley’s wife, but so does George himself.
It gives the reader subtle hints about characters and their situations, clues to events that might happen, and it conveys necessary information about the story. In addition it can also tease or mislead the reader into thinking that something might happen that actually does not. In the novel Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck uses foreshadowing to give hints and clues about what might happen in the end of the book. If a writer fails to include some form of foreshadowing, there is a possibility that an incident or occurrence will happen too quickly and leave the reader confused and wondering why that particular event was not mentioned earlier, or why they are connected. In the book Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech, foreshadowing is immensely important.
In the realistic fiction, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, all of the different characters have different traits that affect others in different ways. Curley is unfriendly, insecure, menacing, and hostile towards others. Each of these traits affects surrounding characters in a negative way. Curley is a very unfriendly character. It is shown multiple times through Of Mice and Men that Curley can be very unfriendly.
He knew that if Curley found George with Lennie, Curley would have thought that George in on the plan the entire time. This is why Curley says “You George! You stick with us so we don’t think you had nothin’ to do with this”(Steinbeck 98). Though some may say that George shouldn’t have killed Lennie only because he didn’t want Curley to do it, George knew and understood how Candy felt when Carlson killed his dog. Ince Candy’s dog was Candy’s best friend, George knew how much pain Candy went through when he had to witness his own dog getting killed by somebody other than himself.
The story “Of Mice and Men” can be demonstrated as both positive, and negative depends on which perspective you are looking at. There are many fascinating points or events that take place. For instance in chapter 6, we see a side of George that many might say was surprising considering no one knew or expected him to kill his best friend, his partner in crime, the man that he said “I will protect Lennie”. Nobody really realized that he could or would commit such a harsh crime, but as you turn and look at why he did it. You might then soon be getting a different approach and meaning to things especially since he could have killed him because the thought of letting somebody else kill the only person who was down for him, was
She let him touch her hair since it was soft and he likes soft things, but then he held on when she wanted him to let go. She started screaming and moving around then Lennie said “Don’t you go yellin’,’ he said, and he shook her … and then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck” (91). Lennie proves that he isn’t a safe person anymore when he did this act. It’s one thing to kill a mouse, or a puppy, but now it is another human. Not saying the animals weren’t bad.
When George and Can 't find her dead in the barn, they knew who did it. When Curlys and the other men came in they also knew who did it. They wanted to kill him. George knew what he had to do. When Candy’s dog got put down, someone else did it for him.
Steinbeck establishes a desperate mood and makes the reader prepare for tragedy by using words with negative connotations and by foreshadowing. In Of Mice and Men nearly every scene serves as foreshadowing for the inevitable tragic ending. George constantly prepares for bad in the future, letting the reader know to expect bad things to come. Lennie’s fixation with soft things suggests that he will
