Society was cruel through their lifestyles. Different people at these time were treated badly because of their age, race and gender. In the bunkhouse Carlson wants to kill Candy’s dog because of its stinking the bunkhouse. “ Well I can’t stand him in here,” said Carlson “That stink hangs around even after he’s gone.” He walked over with a heavy-legged stride and looked down at the dog. “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.
"Listen, Nigger," she said. "You know what I can do to you if you open your trap? "Crooks stared hopelessly at her, and then he sat down on his bunk and drew into himself”(Steinbeck ch.4). The fact that he is handicapped doesn 't help Crooks’ case because it only sets him apart more form the other men on the ranch. This perfectly depicts the somewhat average working african american man.
Candy’s dog who was once an spectacular sheep herder but is now toothless, horrible smelling and brittle from age supports Candy’s fears. Candy’s past accomplishments and current emotional involvement to his dog matter very little as Carlson makes clear when he strongly insisted Candy let him put the dog out of its misery. In such a society Candy’s dog represents an unpalatable reminder of the fate that awaits anyone who outlives their usefulness. For a short time, his dream of living out his days with George and Lennie on the farm they dream of buying distracts Candy from his grim reality. He considers the couple acres of land they explain was worthy of his hard earned life long savings, which bespeaks his desperate need to believe there is a kinder world than the one in which he lives.
First, the minor characters are used to foreshadow the events of the story. Candy’s dog is old, stinks and is “all stiff with rheumatism”; basically he is portrayed as a weak, powerless character. When Carlson offers to shoot the dog, he says “this ol’ dog jus’ suffers hisself all the time...you ain’t bein kind to him keepin’ him alive.” He perceives himself as killing the dog to end its suffering. Candy’s dog’s death makes the readers anticipate for future mercy killings of disempowered characters, which is Lennie’s death in this case. The deliberate use of foreshadowing can be further proved by the striking similarities between the two deaths.
The teacher which should be disgusted by this even if she could remember her past life because a simple act of kindness to be taken advantage like this would make any women angry she actually likes it. I fear that it actually was no superstar model that changed the teachers ' mind or some alien charm, it was the godly ability of plot armor which was soooooo strong. And after a few moment or hours or anything which me the lazy author did not specify John meets another of humanity kings. She is the rageful queen whose brother John the potato king killed but no she did not come for revenge. She actually comes to help the monster king John to survive the apocalypse.
“‘They left all the weak ones here,’” she says upon her entry to the barn, where Candy, an old man with a stump for an arm, Lennie, a big man with a heart to match, but a brain the opposite of his figure; and Crooks, the African American stable buck, who happens to be crippled, are talking. Comparatively, these three are the weaker ones on the ranch, and Curley’s wife takes advantage of it, knowing that they either will not do anything about it, can not do anything about it, or does not know how to do anything about it. She knows that they won’t like it and will, predictably, react to the derogatory statement. But when one of the “weak ones” starts to gain confidence and defend themselves, she turn on them in scorn, “‘Listen nigger,” [Curley’s wife] said. ‘You know what I can do to you if you open your trap?’ Crooks stared hopelessly at her, and then he sat down on his bunk and drew into himself,” scared of what she might do to him.
It is crystal clear that the loneliest character in Of Mice and Men is Crooks. He was rejected to play cards, and to enter the bunkhouse, just because he is colored. He also has an unwelcoming personality that repels people from getting close to him. John Steinbeck clearly expresses loneliness primarily through Crooks than the other characters who are also considered lonely. “People think being alone makes you lonely, but I don’t think that’s true.
While alongside Lennie and Candy, Crooks’ fellow ranchers, a woman who is commonly known as Curley’s wife, interrupts their cordial conversation and snootily insults each of the men to which Crooks righteously defends them. However, primarily due to his skin tone, Curley’s wife threatens to “‘get [Crooks] strung up on a tree’” which is seemingly “‘so easy it ain’t even funny’” (Steinbeck 80). Subsequently, Crooks has “reduced himself to nothing” and his solitude is even more pronounced as society repeatedly illustrates his differences. Although quite untrue, Crooks feels that he is not even an equivalent of a person, more of a machine whose only usefulness are his inadequate working
Along with the way that Huck treated Jim, Twain made him sound like an unintelligent thing, not a human being but just a thing. There were many problems that Jim faced with Huck and one is specifically pointed out as the reason The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was a racist tale and not one that started to show racial tolerance. During the escape of Jim from Aunt Sally’s house Huck devises a simple plan to get Jim out of the barn safely But then Tom comes along and makes the plan much more complicated and insanely dangerous for Jim. Huck instead of stopping Tom from doing this plan asks him why they should do a complicated plan that might hurt Jim and then decides to revert back to his old self and toy with Jim. After all the morale improvements that Huck has made in the end Jim is still being toyed with instead of treated like the free human being he was.
Asagai is from the country of Nigeria and because of this he also has Nigerian culture. This very different black culture does not fit in with the black culture of south side Chicago and is even shamed by many such as George. Despite this Asagai confides in Beneatha about avoiding assimilation. Asagai represents the culture of blacks before their slavery in and oppression in America. Everything from his music and clothes that he gave to Beneatha to his attitude towards American black culture suggests that he disapproves of the new black culture he is engulfed in.
His dog was too old to be any use, just like Candy himself, so he was shot by Carlson. This broke Candy’s heart, along with any of his spirit he had left. Candy was the only old person on the farm, besides his dog. Now that is dog was gone, Candy was totally isolated. Nonetheless, Candy was given some hope by George and Lennie, who told Candy he could be part of their farm.
For one thing, Miss Maudie’s character is hardly focused on at all. This cuts off her insight on the Radley’s way of life as well as completely stopping the fire from ever happening. Without the fire, Boo cannot, once again, prove himself to be a kind person through placing a blanket on Scout. Along with this, the prejudice taking up almost every breath the Maycomb citizens can not be fully understood. Throughout the story, even the smallest of encounters show just how biased and rude the highest respected people could be, and without showing the bad, the movie also fails to show those like Mr. Underwood and Mr. Dolphous Raymond who really stood with
Mayella and her indolent father, Bob Ewell, live in degraded neediness on the edges of town. The family is known as inconvenience and detested by townspeople. Regardless of this current, Atticus ' barrier of Tom is disliked in the white group, and Scout and Jem get themselves provoked at school because of their dad 's resistance of a dark man. Atticus reliably endeavors to impart good values in his youngsters, and wants to neutralize the impact of racial preference. The youngsters see their dad as frustratingly staid and learned, until he is requested that by the sheriff shoot an out of control puppy that is meandering the road.
(11) Curley’s wife complains to Crooks, Lennie, and Candy about her husband, how he “Spends all his time sayin’ what he’s gonna do to guys he don’t like, and he don’t like nobody. Think I’m gonna stay in that two-by-four house and listen how Curley’s gonna lead with his left twict, and then bring in the ol’ right cross?” (78). Obviously, Curley’s wife did not marry Curley because she loves him, but most likely she may be running from someone or something in her life. The unsatisfied wife endures Curley just so she can live in
All the guys at the farm are always trying to convince Candy to shoot his dog and put him out of his misery. “‘Got no teeth’ he said. ‘He 's all stiff with rheumatism. He ain 't no good to you, Candy. An’ he ain 't no good to himself.
