My opinion towards Curley’s Wife, is that she can be a little too flirty at times. I understand that she is lonely when her husband is at work and/or at the whore house, but I think that she should be able to keep it under control. To be honest I hate her. I say this because she is always trying to get people in trouble, she’s always causing trouble, and she never once does anything on her own, she’s always has to go bother the guys, like Lennie. For example in Chapter 5, when Lennie is in the barn, getting all flustered and frustrated because he had just killed the pup on accident because he was play fighting with him, Curley’s Wife came in, and started bothering him.
Throughout the story “In the silence” by Peggy S. Curry the protagonist; Jimmy is on a rollercoaster of emotions. At the beginning of the story, Jimmy is depressed and homesick because of his interactions with Angus Duncan. Although as he would finger is brooch he would remember home, this made him happier. When Angus sent Jimmy into “the silence” he was scared, scared of all the dangers around him. After a few nights “in the silence” he had already lost two of his sheep, one was killed when trampled by a horse, and another was dropped and killed by a sheep, he was worried about what Angus’ reaction would be along with the sheep’s safety in jeopardy.
Naked as a yard dog, kissing him. Him dead and white and puffy and skinny, and she had his fingers in her mouth”” (73). The strange “love” that Ruth possesses for Dr. Foster not only alienates her from Macon and her family more than she already is, but forces her to live an emotionless, depressing life. Her only attempt to retain emotions comes though Milkman as Macon has already given up on her. This is another disgusting act of incest by Ruth which she sees as “love.” Her breaking point comes when Freddie points out that breastfeeding her son at the age of twelve is wrong and strange.
When his dog gets shot he does not have much to live for. He cannot work with the other men and now has lost his one friend in the world. After everyone left the barn and a gunshot was heard in the distance Candy turns to George and says "You seen what they done to my dog tonight? They says he wasn't no good to himself nor nobody else. When they can me here I wisht somebody'd shoot me...""I ought to of shot that dog myself, George.
But later on, his strength increases with anger and cause more problems. Curley is their boss’s son and he has a beautiful young wife that causes trouble. One day Lennie was in the barn crying because he had killed his pup and knows that because he killed the pup he cannot tend the rabbits in their land that they were going to buy. He was sad and angry but at that moment Curley’s wife walks in and try to talk
His behaviour and mindset following the revelation that his dream is no longer obtainable clearly indicate that George no longer believes in his dream, he has acknowledged the fact that his dream is no longer attainable. When George discovers that Lennie has killed Curley’s wife, he ignores Candy’s pleas to maintain hope that their dream can come true, rather he begins to envision himself living the life of a lonely migrant farm worker. A quote that illustrates this belief can be found on page 93 where George states “I’ll work my month an’ I’ll take my fifty bucks an’ I’ll stay all night in some lousy cat house. Or I’ll set in some pool room till ever’body goes home. An’ then I’ll come back an’ work another month an’ I’ll have fifty bucks more.” Here John Steinbeck uses repetition to make it abundantly clear to the reader that George has forsaken his dream, and chosen to become the lonely farm worker he once felt empathy towards.
“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.
A great example of a magician is after Sodapop runs off crying because Darry and ponyboys little argument when he was all calm down, Darry and pony made the promise not to fight anymore pony thought to himself “I guess we all just wanted to stay together”(177). Ponyboy has shown his wisdom to us that even though things may seem horrid and there is nothing but darkness there 's always something good even if its small and he wants to share this with those kids that he was thinking about. Another example to show ponyboy has the wisdom of a magician after he read johnny 's note and thought about all the other kids out in the great wide somewhere with problems like his or different and thought “someone should tell their side of the story”(179). Ponyboy has shown his wisdom to us that even though things may seem horrid and there is nothing but darkness there 's always something good even if its small and he wants to share this with those kids that he was thinking
In Of Mice of Men the message that I believe John Steinbeck is trying to show us is to treat people the way we want to be treated. Nobody should be treated different because of their age. Candy is lonely because nobody includes him. My guess is that they don’t include him because he is old and disabled. “All but old Candy.
Other men like Carlson, Crooks, Candy, and Slim would go out on their own and would often be very lonely as they didn’t have any family with them. While many men in this age live on their own, they need to find a person or object to take hold of for companionship. The companionship between George and Lennie is unbreakable and many times the other ranch hands are jealous of their relationship. When George and Lennie first arrive on the ranch, they are met by a man named Candy. Candy is and old man who relies on his dog to act as a companion.
