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.
Candy is set apart from the rest of the workers due to his old age and his strong bond with his dog who eventually was killed. Candy is first introduced as “a tall stoop-shouldered old man”(18), indicating to the audience he is old. Candy also has a hand injury which prevents him to do as much as the rest of the men are able to, making him feel isolated to certain things. Toward the beginning of the novella, Carlson suggested to Candy that he should kill his dog due to its old age. Candy cried desperately “‘No, I couldn’t do that.
Brutality In “Of Mice and Men” animals and even humans are being mistreated and disrespected. Animals are being killed and even strangled to death, which is not the right way to treat animals. People are also being brutal to other people in the book. Candy, one of the main characters had a dog. The dog did not have a name.
Lennie’s Experiences with Animals Foreshadow Death Lennie's experiences with animals foreshadow later events because the actions with animals are negative. They show that Lennie is out of control and careless. For example, Lennie has killed mice by only petting them, which was said in the passage. Next , when Carlson wants to shoot Candy’s dog right in the back of the head, Candy is hesitant because he has had the dog for a very long time. This foreshadows Lennie’s death when he is shot right in the back of the head by George, who really does not want to because George has been beside Lennie for so long and how innocent and benevolent Lennie had been.
“If you just happen to get in trouble like you always done before hide here in the brush.” Because he has gotten in trouble before he wants him to hide, and they repeat it multiple times throughout the story. Also, Lennie kills his puppy. Lennie says,”Why do you got to get killed? You ain’t so little as mice.” He kills something bigger and right after, curley’s wife comes into the barn hinting that something bad will happen. These show how Steinbeck uses foreshadowing in the story.
Crooks is physically separated from the rest of the workers on the ranch and has to live in a shed on the side of the barn. The racial discrimination is harsh and is part of the microcosm Steinbeck uses to describe in his story. Crooks reads lots of books because he has no companions. Crooks has the same problem as candy because of his disability and race he has no hope of moving on and getting a better
Back in the 1920´s through the 1930´s people would have been seen differently because of their skin tone. Like crooks in Of Mice and Men he's a man of color and because of that he lives by himself in the barn while all the white men live together in the bunk house. Characters in this story view the discrimination differently. In this story the discrimination has affected not too many lives but causes one not to be as happy and fulfilling as the others which is a negative effect on him and how well he socializes with others. Like for example it says ¨ Crooks bunk was a long filled box with straw ¨( 66 ).
We like to suggest that we all love each other, and have thoughts with love for everyone. But I don 't believe that 's true for mentally ill people. In of Mice and Men the character Lennie suffers from mental retardation, people around him don 't know anything about mental illness so they brush it off as him being dumb. Leading him to kill a woman, and then die because of it. We still treat people with halfhearted treatments, some people who are treating the mentally ill are not professionally licensed, some countries don 't even have a mentally health policy causing mentally ill patients not to seek help, and even in the USA we think people who are mentally ill seek
The farmers couldn 't provide for their family because they lacked power and money to effectively work on their farms, they were stuck in bad economy. In the book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in chapter 4 page 17 it says, ’’’I wonder if that farmer thought to fool me in this clumsy manner. Any crow of sense could see that you are only stuffed with straw.’ Then he hopped down at my feet and ate all the corn he wanted. The other birds, seeing that he was not harmed by me, came to eat the corn too, so in. A short there was a great flock of them about me.’’’ This shows that the Scarecrow wasn’t able to do his job because he was stuck on
His wife escaped, so the farmer and his people chase her then locked her in his house. The farmer was uneducated so he probably didn't know what his wife really want. So the farmer can deal with animals very well, but he can’t deal with relationship well. As the reader of the poem, the reader think it was pretty normal for the farmer to think in that way at his time period. The reader can’t blame the farmer for the way
