‘’ That god damn old he can't hardly walk stinks like hell to ever time he comes into the book house i can smell him for two there days ‘’ (Steinbeck 36)`The novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is about two guys that are trying to find a job and once they get that job they are saving it to get like a barn and land. One of the characters is Carlson; he shoots Candy’s dog because he was smelling stinky. Shooting Candy’s dog was good because he was old and I don't think Candy was taking care of it. For example, “cause he stinks and he is very old so to me it doesn't matter an he can hardly walk so to me a dog doesn't even supposed to be in the house (P. 36 ) This quote shows if he was taking care of his dog this would have
Discrimination of the mice and men In the book Of mice and men written by John Steinback some of the characters are mistreated by the other people because they are not the same they are the outcast of the group. Curley 's wife is a lonely woman on a ranch with a whole bunch of ranch hands and nobody wants to have anything to do with her she got married to man that she doesn 't even love she is just on the ranch with a lot of people and really nobody likes her and even after death nobody even felt bad for her. Candy said “ You God D*** Tramp”. You did it din you.
Candy felt terrible after Carlson shot his dog because Candy was the one that raised it, and it is only for them to kill it, not some stranger. George is like a father to Lennie
Carlson ordered the killing of Candy’s dog because it had no purpose on the ranch. As the workers gathered in the bunkhouse, Carlson arrived and smelled Candy’s old sheep herding dog. He proposed to kill the dog and told
John Steinbeck also created a character named Candy. Candy is an older man missing a hand, with his old sheepdog for a companion. The dog means everything to him, he’s had him ever since he was a pup. Candy felt like he had a friend in his dog, but then a fellow worker named Carlson decided he didn’t want the dog there anymore. Carlson tried his best to make Candy agree to letting him put his dog down, and eventually Candy had to because he knew he wouldn’t let it go.
“George’s hand remained outstretched imperiously. Slowly, like a terrier who doesn’t want to bring a ball to its master, Lennie approached, drew back, approached again. George snapped his fingers sharply, and at the sound Lennie laid the mouse in his hand.” (Steinbeck 9). Lennie is described as a terrier, which creates a connection between him and Candy’s dog.
In the Novel Of Mice and Men, there are many characters, all though not all fit in. In this book Lennie’s Mentally ill and he can’t communicate like the adult he is, Crooks is a black crippled men, and Curley’s wife is the wife of the boss is son. Lennie, Crooks, and Curley’s wife are outcast in the book “Of Mice and Men.” Lennies is an outcast in the book “Of Mice and Men,” first of all Lennie’s mentally ill and he is a social outcast.
Every human is different, and some become social outcasts. In the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, some characters are different and are left out. Crooks is a social outcast and is left out, because of his race. Candy is a social outcast because he is older, so he is left out. Curley’s wife is a social outcast and is left out, because she's the only girl on the ranch.
Prejudice is something we see everyday: on the news, in social media, and even in the community. Prejudice isn’t something new either - Of Mice and Men shows that. Of Mice and Men, written by John Steinbeck, tells the story of one man with a mental disability (Lennie) and the other who takes care of him (George). They run from their hometown and begin work on a ranch. From here on out it is shown how Steinbeck’s characters relate and how they are different, through qualities and personalities.
. Do you think its wrong to kill a dog? The novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is about George and lennie, who are migrant farm workers are starting a new job and meeting a lot of people. In the third chapter of the novel, there was a fight in the bunker between lenwnie and curley and then candy gets upset about his dog. One of the characters is Carlson; he shoots Candy’s dog because he was smelly, old, dirty, and going to die soon anyway.
Candy does not want to give up the dog since he has had him for so long, and the dog is one of the only possessions he has left. Being old makes some of the other guys not like him as much. Even though they do not actually say it, it is implied when one of them says “I wisht somebody’d shoot me if I got old an’ a cripple” which is exactly what Candy is (Steinbeck 45). Candy is quite old and is missing a hand so although Slim is describing his dog, he is also inadvertently describing Candy. In the same way Crooks is lonely because of his color, Curley’s wife is lonely because of her
“And her eyes traveled from one face to another. ‘They left all the weak ones here’” (77). This quote appears late in the novel when Slim, George, and a few others from the ranch left to go into town. This means they left the others that were considered ‘the outcasts’ behind. In Of Mice and Men, these outcasts, Candy, Crooks, Curley’s Wife, and Lennie, are discriminated for their physical capabilities, race, gender, and mental abilities.
Candy did not want to kill the dog himself because he was to used to having him, he had him since he was a pup. Killing
