Considering the economic climate at the time coupled with his situation, this joke turns into an ignorant statement which explains why he has “…been broke twenty-two years” (182). Another illumining glimpse into his reckless spending of money is his conversation with his friend, Rudy. In this conversation Francis answers Rudy’s question as to where he got his $10 by saying he found it “Up in a tree.” (192). A harmless quip on the surface but much more telling when looked at in more detail. It is interesting Francis uses a tree to joke with Rudy as his attitude with money seems to stem from this line; Francis seems to think money grows on trees even though he himself does not have much to begin with.
In this chapter, the gloom is relieved by the hopeful planning of the three men — George, Lennie, and Candy — toward their dream. For the first time in his life, George believes the dream can come true with Candy's down payment. He knows of a farm they can buy, and the readers' hopes are lifted as well, as the men plan, in detail, how they will buy the ranch and what they will do once it is theirs. But while Steinbeck includes this story of hope, the preponderance of the chapter is dark. Both the shooting of Candy's dog and the smashing of Curley's hand foreshadow that the men will not be able to realize their
In the first chapter, Tree-Ear sees a man with a pack that, “Rice began to trickle out of a hole in the straw box. The trickle thickened and became a stream .”(Park 4) while Tree-Ear,”Walked until the man had reached the bend in the road, then ran to catch up to him. ‘Honorable sir,’ Tree-ear said, panting and bowing , ‘As I walked behind you, I noticed that you are marking your path with rice!’”(Park 4,5) This needed courage because Tree-Ear is a starving orphan and wanted to steal the rice. But instead of stealing the rice, Tree-Ear does
Some Critics said that his work was “considered in the literary tradition of Social Realism” and “usually economic” (“Of Mice” 253). The works main characters consisted of George and Lennie two men traveling town to town looking for whatever job they could find on a ranch or farm. In the beginning Lennie is implied to be slower than George, and George has to take care of him. Plus, John steinbeck focuses on the life that George and Lennie had before they found work “bagging barley”(“Mice” 253). The novel mentions George and Lennie 's brief stay in Weed another town they were working in.
“It is said that one night, Singing Boy, descended from the Volcano People, was walking back from the market with teas and candies.”As I stroll to the store to get snacks for the second half of the super bowl, I am attempting to make it snappy. I at long last touch base at the store and rapidly get my two most loved delicacies, skittles and an ice tea. Pondering internally this is all I require, not realizing that it would be my last feast. “Singing Boy walked past the place of his father’s home onto the land of Troubled Man, a Water person of old who grew troubled by the strange singing floating in the dark. With every step, rain steamed up from Singing Boy’s path and showered down upon him.
In “The Chrysanthemums” Elisa’s husband comments, “‘I wish you’d work out in the orchard and raise some apples that big.’ Elisa then replies, ‘Maybe I could do it, too. I’ve a gift with things’” (Steinbeck 1238). This subtle jab at the worthlessness her husband presumes upon Elisa’s hobby highlights the insensitivity he shows toward her growing ambitions. “The Yellow Mule” paints a similar picture in the beginning when the narrator describes, “Janie loved the conversation and sometimes she thought up good stories on the mule, but Joe had forbidden her to indulge” (Hurston 1231). This establishes the lording nature Janie’s husband possesses and the acute isolation that the woman is placed in.
Benvolio then goes on to describe how he spotted Romeo in a grove of sycamore, and how Romeo, when he caught sight of Benvolio, retreated further into the woods. Montague, worried about his son, says Romeo has gotten in the habit of avoiding the

In the video it is easier to see scrooge's attitude and, negative disposition. However, in the theatre production when scrooge helps his employee’s family it seems to make more of an impact. There was a slight alteration to the spirit of the past , and how the last family meal of his employee was presented. The similarities however overpower the differences seen in “A Christmas Carol.” The path of greed is a long, lonesome, and hard one that tries men's souls. This is moral is weaved through by Charles Dickens and sways readers, to act selflessly,kindly, and wholeheartedly.
However, being a bystander lead an effect of evil just spreading upon other bystanders not helping those in need of help and caused a big silence letting the evil spread. Based on the poem, "First They Came", the poem states, "Then they came for the Socialist and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist"(stanza;2 Niemoller)"Then they came for the Trade Unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionists"(stanza;3 Niemoller). This evidence gives an exact example of how someone would keep their mouth shut instead of speaking up as a bystander and
