Of Mice And Men Crooks Loneliness

Good Essays
In the book Of Mice and Men, loneliness is a recurring theme that affects many of the characters in the story. A lot of the characters in Of Mice and Men are lonely to the nature of the situation they are in but there are some characters that express it more than others. Crooks displays his loneliness when a few other workers come to visit him. Lennie and Candy come into his room and Crooks tried to act angry about it but “It was difficult for Crooks to conceal his pleasure with anger” (Steinbeck 75). This quote expresses how happy Crooks was that some people finally had some interest in him and how he tried to play it off like he was angry about them intruding on his space.
