Life isn’t always fair for people. In fact, the majority of people you meet in your life will even say that life's not fair at all. Sacrifices have to be made in order for our futures to be made. Of Mice and Men is about sacrifices, and how they may be difficult to make, but they will absolutely pay off in the long
John Steinbeck wrote a novel called of Mice and Men 3 characters (George, Curleys wife and Crooks)are involved to prove The theme of failure of the american dream.They all have something they want to achieve by either escaping from something or doing something but they all fail to do so. First John Steinbeck uses George, George came from a small town called Weed with his mentally impaired friend Lennie who is large and massive and looks like a normal person but has the mind of a child,so George looks out for Lennie since he can 't do it on his own. They ran away from Weed to get away from the trouble that was caused by Lennie when he “accidentally” scared a woman by grabbing and feeling on her soft red dress. Lennie has an obsession with soft things.George is tiny compared to Lennie but is really smart he has a dream that their gonna own their own ranch and live happily ever after and have some cows, chickens, and rabbits to tend Lennie is very excited about the rabbits .”we 're gonna have a little place( John Steinbeck 105) George promises Lennie. Sadly that doesn 't happen because Lennie got into some more trouble by killing the bosses sons wife just by not understanding his strength, when the workers find her body lying in the hay inside of the barn
Without challenges, the world would be a place with no improvements and a futureless world. A futureless world personifies an undignified empty world that costs people to suffer. Many characters had already faced these types of challenges especially Jacob and George, but those two had always fought hard to fight the challenges they were facing. John Steinbeck and Patrick Carman had at least compared both George and Jacob as two different characters through the book Mice and Men and Thirteen days to midnight, but they had similar challenges through their temptations and its consequences, Its Relationships that cause troubles and their bravery to save the person they love. And these challenges will be shown.
Many of these workers wanted to obtain these goals through hard work and sacrifice, instead of it being handed to them. The sad reality was that like George and Lennie, the majority do not ever live the dream. The title of the book comes from the poem ‘To a Mouse’ by Robert Burns. The best-laid schemes o ' mice an ' men/ Gang aft agley/ An ' lea 'e us nought but grief an ' pain. In this poem the author accidentally turns up a mouse’s burrow with a plough.
But for some reason he'd always accidently kill them. ¨ You gonna give me that mouse or do I have to sock you?¨ ( Steinbeck 8). George would never let lennie have a mouse, which made lennie feel like he was alone and wish his aunt was there.. Even though lennie and George, all George did was control him. George had specifically told lennie not to talk to anyone, but sometimes people get a little bit lonely.
Henry later explains to Richard that they used to perform the ritual with Bunny, but decided to leave him out because he lacks the discipline and devotion, often telling jokes at serious moments during the bacchanal. I couldn’t bear the thought that, after everything we’d done, he’d ruin it at the last minute. And I knew he would. At the crucial moment he’d start to tell some asinine joke and ruin everything. Page 185-186 Bunny’s capabilities as a student are another
Because of Lennie's mental disability, he is required to be dependent on George. In the beginning of the novel as George and Lennie are making their way to the migrant farm, Lennie has a dead mouse in his pocket. Lennie feels that if he were to tell George concerning the mouse, he would yell at Lennie and be angry with him for his wrong doing. Ultimately, the more times George gets furious or impatient with Lennie, Lennie believes that George will not allow his dream of owning a farm in the future to come true (Owens). Likewise, Lennie's lack of consciousness from determining right from wrong, denounces his self character, leading to his own death.
Yet, the truth is that George was willing to take Lennie’s life in order for him to escape the pains he would have endured. On the contrary, the lack of friendship between Curley’s wife and anyone else causes Curley’s wife a feeling a boredom and frustration. Because of this, she searches the farm for a partner to comfort her. This angers Curley and creates a foundation of mistrust between Curley and everyone on the farm. Curley displays this mistrust throughout the book, especially towards Lennie.
Curley and the others arrive driven by anger and Slim goes over to George and tries to reassure him. “You hadda, George. I swear you hadda.” (Pg. 107) After all that time George thought he was doing the “right” thing but in the end it came to bite him. Their dream crushed and gone forever for Lennie was a part of it.
The pose writer of this piece “Of Mice and Men” reproduces closure to his conclusive chapter doing exactly this, a tie back ending. As well as we were told on the first chapter "Lennie if you jus' happen to get in trouble like you always done before, I want you to come right here an' hide in the brush… Hide in the brush till I come for you" just here Lennie is during this last chapter, he got on a misfortuned accident. Throughout the story Lennie is represented as a clumsy strong man who doesn't recognize or even know about his strength, he often kills soft thing since he pets them way too hard, this action and conduct repeats at least four times during the novella. Lennie’s killing habit foreshadows the events of this penultimate chapter leading to the consequences of the last chapter. The last scene of Lennie and George displays their usual relationship Lennie committing mistakes and George being mad at him.
