Hopeless or Hopelessness? Hopelessness and futility can lead a life into nowhere, because without hope you won 't have a dream or a goal to accomplish. Hopelessness is often shown in places where people have no hope to continue life or anything. In John Steinbeck 's novel, Of Mice and Men, it shows hopelessness in character 's dialogue, and character’s actions. In Of Mice and Men, George is one of the characters who lost hope to his friend Lennie, through the actions/troubles Lennie had made.
The author wanted his readers to grasp the idea that shame and ridicule will force someone into loneliness and isolation. For example, when Lennie believed that George did not want the burden of always having him around, he thought about going off and living in a “cave”(12). The cave represents the simple and isolated lifestyle that Lennie dreamed about. Even when he and George were dreaming about their future together, Lennie always wanted a “little house” where just he and George could live alone and not having any contact with the outside world because they would “live fatta the lan”(14). This may have been a result of the people, in previous town that Lennie lived in, chasing him away because Lennie reacted to a problem in a way different
This shows that George is lonely and wants to keep Lennie with him. Even though he wants Lennie by his side he doesn 't take his chance to run away, even with a head start on the ranch hands. If he lets Lennie go on his own then George knows that he will get into more trouble and probably get
Most people at some point in time have felt lonely, as if the world is turning against them. A lot of people feel isolated and lonely due to some sort of barrier, whether it is race, gender, or people group. However, people can also choose to be lonely. In the novella Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, isolation and loneliness are displayed throughout the novel. It begins with two men named George and Lennie who have moved to work on a new ranch.
People Affected by Loneliness Loneliness can make anyone affected by it very depressing and sad to see. It is seen in Of Mice and Men in many characters that are prominent in the story. The main ones are Crooks (the black stable hand), Candy (the old worker with his old dog), and Curley’s wife (who is ignored so that they do not get into trouble). Each of these characters have had lasting events that led them here. They all show to have been or become lonely in the story at one point in time.
We are alone in the world, but not everyone experiences loneliness .In John Steinbeck’s novella, Of Mice and Men, most of the characters confess that they have suffered from profound loneliness. This loneliness is different with each character. Curley’s wife is lonely because of her isolation. The old man Candy, is lonely because of his best friend, his dog has died and Crooks is lonely because of his race. All of these characters are described as sad and hopeless individuals.
Being isolated from one's problems can drive anyone to live a sad and depressing life. Ethan Frome started by, when the narrator questions Ethan's motive to stay in the oh so bad described town. The novel was mostly a flashback of how everything got to what it is, and what was that tragic accident that not one soul in the town wants to talk about. Ethan Frome written by Edith Wharton, revolves around Ethan, a man who was raised and lived his whole life in a poor town and never left, The most important theme is isolation. At the beginning the narrator wonders why a man like Ethan would stay in such a bad town through all this time.
Salves in America were treated very poorly, Crooks is an example of this because he is forced to sleep in the barn while the other workers sleep in cabins. His social status limits him from interactions with other people and he expresses his feelings in chapter 4, "A guy needs somebody-to be near him.' He whined, 'A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. Nobody never gets to heaven, and nobody gets no land." Crook’s bad circumstances and grim reality make him a difficult person to interact with and befriend, and this is shown when Lennie tries to talk with him and Crooks keeps pushing him away with unkindness.
In John Steinbeck’s novel, Of Mice and Men, George and Lennie share an unbreakable bond. The bond they share is based off of many obligations; such as guilt, love, and the fear of being alone. Despite their many obligations, they both possess many qualities that help to benefit each other. Their bond is justified throughout the novel by elaborating on their everyday life on the ranch and by conversation that occurs amongst George and Lennie. Lennie is a mentally unstable man who is not capable of properly taking care of himself, or making the best decisions in the situations that he is faced with throughout the novel.
Companionship is a necessity for those seeking happiness and peace of mind within their lives. Without any faith in others, people will suffer from loneliness and sorrow.This idea is presented in the novella, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck. The text delineates the lives of multiple characters who have experienced pain as a result of their alienation from others. These characters include a back man, named Crook’s, who is separated from society because of his skin color, Curley’s wife who, in the time period, was treated with disrespect because of her gender, and two itinerant farm laborers, George and Lennie, once the best of friends, who have lost each other in a world of fear and misfortune. This concept of isolation is developed through
Loneliness is a very common In Of Mice and Men, loneliness is a very common thing, the men who work on the farms travel from farm to farm usually alone, "Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don 't belong no place. They come to a ranch an ' work up a stake and then they go inta town and blow their stake, and the first thing you know they 're poundin ' their tail on some other ranch. They ain 't got nothing to look ahead to” (Steinbeck 113).In the book some of the characters that have it the worst is crooks, Lennie, and curleys wife.
Is Isolation Ever for the Better? John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men contains a multitude of themes through which Steinbeck shows his disgust with society. This story was written during The Great Depression and the American society was struggling to survive. People thought that by isolating themselves, they could protect people they love. Steinbeck portrays this hardship through several characters throughout the book.
How would it feel to have no friends or family, and to feel like you had no hope for the future? Although this seems unreal, these feelings were reality for people in CAlifornia, and the rest of America, during the 1930s. John Steinbeck, the author of Of Mice and Men, conveys a different story of different communities and how they experienced loneliness during the Great Depression. Characters such as Crooks, Curley’s wife, and George are used to prove that loneliness is an inevitable part of existing as a human being, according to Steinbeck who saw that, especially in the 1930s, when entire groups were isolated from each other. Steinbeck’s clearest example of human loneliness and frustration appears to be Crooks because of racial segregation.
