The reason being, Burns was ploughing in the fields and accidentally destroyed a mouse’s nest. In one of the poems stanzas, Burns says, “But mouse-friend, you are not alone in proving foresight may be vein: the best-laid schemes of Mice and Men go aft awry, and leave us only grief and pain for promised joy.” This is where the book, Of Mice And Men, got its title. It’s saying that no matter what happens, humans never end up happy. That they can’t have nice things because they always get destroyed. This is what the mice really represent in this book.
Sadly, paying little respect to where the animal goes, his peculiar highlights move just dread and aversion. His first cooperation with people is rough: looking for nourishment, the animal enters a town and soon gets himself "horrifyingly wounded by stones and numerous different sorts of rocket weapons" (95). Moreover, the De Laceys, whom the beast appreciates for their "effortlessness, magnificence, and sensitive appearances" (102) ambush the animal when he is found in their home; Felix strikes him "viciously with a stick" (120). Quite, the beast does not counter against these activities. He concedes he could have torn Felix "appendage from appendage as the lion severs the impala" however his "heart sank .
Lennie is a big man with mental disabilities; he is very strong and has a good heart. Lennie likes to touch soft thing, especially pets. Due to that he likes to pet them he has killed many animals because he doesn’t know his own strength. For instance on page 9 George takes away Lennie’s mouse because it is dead, for stroking it too hard. But later on, his strength increases with anger and cause more problems.
In the book everything he touches he kills with his strength like a women, a puppy, and a mouse. Which foreshadows his death because his strength kills everything and he does understand his own strength which forces the others to kill him. The third example of Steinback’s use of foreshadowing in “Of Mice and Men” is his Idea of the American Dream. In the third document George and Lennie talk about buying a little piece of land and them getting the money to purchase the land. The use of the ranch in the book ties into the American Dream in the story.
Two of the reoccurring literary devices in Richard Wright’s novel “Native Son” are symbolism and imagery. Wright uses these devices to perfection and they are what make his novel so moving and powerful. The ones that stood out to me the most are the rat scenesin the beginning of the novel, the pigeon flying onto the railroad tracks, Marys severed heard, Biggers dream about running in fear, and the snow. In the opening scene of the novel, Bigger has to deal with a disgusting rat in his family’s one-room apartment. A disgusting black rat jumped onto biggers pant leg and bit on to it, bigger shook his leg until the rat flew off and then eventually killed it in front of his whole family with a shoe.
Watership Down, by Richard Adams, is a book about a group of rabbits that venture away from their warren and it describes all the dangers that they face. The main characters, Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig, and Blackberry can easily get all of the rabbits following behind them through any sticky situation. Although, as you go on through the story, they add more characters that play a huge role. For example, General Woundwort, the leader of the Efrafan rabbits. He is a strong fighter and has many similarities to Bigwig.
George had to decide whether or not he would kill Lennie mercifully, or let the rest of the worker's murder him. I believe George should have killed Lennie because he has hurt people, can’t control himself, and would have probably ended up in a horrible mental institution anyway. Despite Lennie’s seemingly innocent nature, he hurts many people and animals throughout the story. He would pet mice and break their tiny bodies. He had a puppy and killed it for trying to bite him.
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.
1.-(A)The novel “Of Mice and Men” is a tragedy because it is about a basically good person,Lennie,who suffers a fall brought about by something in his nature therefore provoking emotions of pity and fear to the reader. Lennie is a basically good person because his actions didn’t had any cruel or evil intentions. For instance, on page 9 and 10, when Lennie and George are talking, George tells Lennie that he always kills mice and he answers “I´d pet´em,and pretty soon they bit my fingers and I pinched their heads a little and then he was dead—because they was so little.” He was a really innocent person, however his nature and actions got him in a lot of problems. For example, when he is petting dead mice throughout the book, touching the girl´s red dress and touching soft things in general, all these events lead to the final event which provokes emotions of pity and fear to the reader. 1.-(B) The novel “Of Mice and Men” is not a tragedy because the protagonists weren’t important people to society.
