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.

Just like how the white men “drove him to kill himself and know he will be buried like a dog”. (Pg.208) This means that he hanged himself because he could not go on with the white people taking over the village but no one wanting to do anything about it.
