The reason being, Burns was ploughing in the fields and accidentally destroyed a mouse’s nest. In one of the poems stanzas, Burns says, “But mouse-friend, you are not alone in proving foresight may be vein: the best-laid schemes of Mice and Men go aft awry, and leave us only grief and pain for promised joy.” This is where the book, Of Mice And Men, got its title. It’s saying that no matter what happens, humans never end up happy. That they can’t have nice things because they always get destroyed. This is what the mice really represent in this book.
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.
In “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck, George made the right decision in shooting Lennie because Lennie did not know his own strength. Another reason is If George did not kill Lennie others would have killed him. However, the other side might argue that Lennie did not mean to kill Curley’s wife, thus he deserves to live. George should have killed Lennie because Lennie did not know his own strength, that is the reason why he killed many things by accident and caused many problems. “Why do you got to get killed?
The tone helps the reader build the characters life story, and how they feel at a certain time. Sometimes the author may put figurative language to portray what the character is feeling, and sometime if the text is extravagant, it may cause the reader to feel the same way, such as this quote, “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.” (page 109). This is such a powerful emotion of hatred toward something that is very sad, such as when Eliezer lost his father. The tone and mood enhance the text by adding detail and facts.
First,In the castle the merchant had to take one rose for Beauty but the Beast got mad. “You are very ungrateful I had saved your life by receiving you in my castle, and in return you steal my roses.”pg3 This passage shows Jeanne changed the mood from happy to sad. Next, Beauty volunteered for her father to stay at the Beast 's castle so her father didn 't die. “As soon as he was gone, Beauty sat
When George tells Lennie to meet him in the bushes if anything bad happens this is foreshadowing to the ending of the book when Lennie has to meet him there. Also, Candy telling George that he regretted not killing his dog himself leads to the end where George kills Lennie because he didn't want to live with the same regret as Candy. Lastly, all of the times that Lennie kills animals by petting them foreshadows to when Lennie kills Curley’s wife. The ending of John Steinbeck’s book would not make sense without him putting examples of foreshadowing in the
Then Juliet goes to Friar Laurence to get help “Come weep with me, past hope, past care, past help.” (2357) and he agrees to we’d them. This caused Juliet to have to fake her death, which caused Romeo to kill himself “Here’s to my love. O true apothecary, thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die.” (2972) If Friar Laurence would have never agreed to wed Romeo and Juliet they would have not been happily together, but they would most likely still be alive and hopefully moved on. This would not have been the most happy ending, but it still would have made it less tragic knowing that they would still live and move on and hopefully live happily with someone
The crack of the gun shook many souls who had read the book Of Mice And Men. In the book Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck, George kills Lennie towards the end of the book and there are questions on whether it was wright or not for George to kill Lennie. George was right to kill Lennie because George would end it for him quickly, George would do it compassionately instead of Curley doing it in a bad way, and it would relieve Lennie of the pain and agony he has been through due to his illness. In almost every corner in the world, murder is illegal. However, in this particular situation, I believe that George 's decision to kill Lennie was acceptable due to the fact that it would have been easier for Lennie to die from George then having Curley
Why live in reality when there are dreams? George and Lennie’s dreams are to get a place on their own and live in it peacefully, and tend rabbits, but unfortunately, George killed Lennie due to some conflicts led by Lennie rather than letting his friends kill him. He did it out of love. John Steinbeck’s novel Of Mice and Men bespeaks the idea that dreams are important for a bright future, visualized by each character differently, and ultimately affects the future of each character.
