This fellow is a danger to the people in the community. This poor elderly man misunderstood Billy. Just because Billy was agitated, that doesn’t give him the right to ruthlessly punch the unfortunate old man. The final reason is Billy committed murder. This meager old man couldn’t stand a chance against Billy.
Since the Underground Man’s character has been described as socially isolated since the beginning of the book, his difficulties expressing himself to other individuals was the commencement of a deep angry desire to have some authority over the officer. Rather than letting the incident go he torments himself with it and plans a revenge. A revenge that he cannot pursue because his low income does not allow him to play the role of a sophisticated
He hates it there, “I can hardly, think about the movie,I hate this pace so much. But if i didn't think of the movie i would go crazy.” it is getting so bad for him. The jail, the inmates, the food, and the stress is breaking him. He is not meant to be here, he isn't the bad guy everyone makes him
Salves in America were treated very poorly, Crooks is an example of this because he is forced to sleep in the barn while the other workers sleep in cabins. His social status limits him from interactions with other people and he expresses his feelings in chapter 4, "A guy needs somebody-to be near him.' He whined, 'A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. Nobody never gets to heaven, and nobody gets no land." Crook’s bad circumstances and grim reality make him a difficult person to interact with and befriend, and this is shown when Lennie tries to talk with him and Crooks keeps pushing him away with unkindness.
Crooks knew he would never get a chance at a dream even though he wished it could because of the big guy. The author uses crooks loneliness in differentness to the other friendships. When Crooks and Lennie are in the barn, Crooks explains to Lennie that “a guy gets too lonely an’ he gets sick”(73), talking about himself. Steinbeck was trying to make Crooks appear completely different to George and Lennie’s characters. While George and Lennie have each other, Crooks only has his books, and even those books don’t make him happy, he says, “ain’t no good.
Also, this is an example that Curly likes to embarrass Lennie to get some fun out of being at the bunkhouse. This makes Lennie feel very uncomfortable not knowing what to say, and also knowing that George has nothing he can say or do to get him out of this embarrassing
Lennie had made a mistake when he was alone and the consequences for his actions resulted in his execution. One final example of foreshadowing in Of Mice in Men, is when Carlson shot Candy’s dog. Candy told George, "I oughtta of shot that dog myself, George. I shouldn't oughtta of let no stranger shoot my dog". Candy had realized it was his responsibility to have shot his dog.
I’ll shoot him in the guts. Come on, you guys. This is an even stronger reason why George did the right thing by killing Lennie. Lennie was a kind hearted fellow but he always ended up hurting somebody or killing something, and that’s why George had to do what he did. In the book Lennie killed many mice, a dog, and even a girl at the end, it may have been and accident but it was the fact that he is dangerous.
The presence of friendship affecting Candy when he has a hard time letting go of his long time friend and when Lennie relies on his friendship with George to get him through tough situations. The absence of friendship affects characters like Crooks; since he is black and feels like he is not wanted he always wants to be alone and have his space. The presence and absence of friendship can affect different characters in different ways; especially in John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and
Cross usually separated himself from his men to fantasize about his beloved Martha. The main conflict of this essay is that Lieutenant Cross is unable to control his obsessive behavior over Martha, and therefore, leads to him being an awful leader. One way you can identify that Lieutenant Cross is an awful leader is because he never took war seriously and let his men do whatever they wanted. Since Lt. Cross was always distracted, his men seemed to be fooling around most of the time. At night, it was all fun and games for this group of soldiers.
