Lennie has a very big attraction to soft things that he can pet; this gets him in trouble throughout his life. Many events in Of Mice and Men are foreshadowed such as Curley’s wife’s untimely death, the loss of the farm dream, and Lennie’s death. In the novel Lennie shows great interest in petting soft things, and it is also shown that Lennie normally kills the things he pets. However, Lennie and George were caught in a situation in Weed where Lennie grabbed onto a girls dress and this got him and George into serious trouble.
In Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, two Depression-era ranch workers named George Milton and Lennie Smalls find themselves traveling around the country, looking for work. After Lennie’s Aunt Clara passes away, George is left to watch out for Lennie, who constantly finds himself in the middle of conflicts. He does everything he can to keep Lennie away from trouble, even if their close friendship raises suspicion at work. In the end, Lennie once again creates trouble for himself, only this time it’s worse and it’s up to George to protect him from facing consequences.
Later in the the book, he talked excitedly about how he could tend to a bunch of rabbits, once they got their own farm. A final example is how he wanted to stay with all the newborn pups in the barn, and just pet them for the rest
In the next couple paragraphs I am going to talk about the dreams of three characters from the novella “Of Mice and Men” Those three characters are: George, Curly’s wife and Candy. For George his dream is explained in extreme detail in the text mainly because Lennie brings it up on almost every page. Georges dream is to: move to a ranch with Lennie own a cow, a pig, some chickens, and a pen of Rabbits George also wants to own a couple of acres and have some wheat, barley, and alfalfa growing on them, the last thing that they really want to do is become their own bosses.
Anansi and Aso, Coyote, and Master Cat use cunning to get what they desire within each of their trickster tales. That is what they do; they are tricksters and they certainly play the part. Anansi and Aso help their community and the world because they worked as a team. They serve as an explanation as to why stories came to Earth and why spiders spin their webs. Coyote acted alone in his story of cheating a bully to help the animals and people in his tribal world.
One of the major themes of John Steinbeck’s novel Of Mice and Men, published in 1937, is that having a dream breeds hope and friendship. First and foremost, candy’s solitary life prompts him to be friends with George and Lennie after his dog gets killed. Then George and Lennie’s dream of owning land leads them with hope. Due to the unproductivity of the dog, Carlson kills candy’s dog. Candy was prompted by George and Lennie’s conversation of possessing a land.
“You beat time on my head, With a palm caked hard by dirt, Then waltzed me off to bed, Still clinging to your shirt” (Lines 13-16). The line, “You beat time in my head,” (Line 13), may be misunderstood to indicate physical violence. However, because the waltz begins in a slow rhythm that gradually, increases in tempo, the boy is dizzy and breathless, and yet happy, by its end. Although exhausted the narrator still desires to continue prancing around with the father. Given the opportunity, he would gladly experience his childhood memories exactly the same – bruises, cuts and all.
Explaining why he “held on like death” show that the child is fearful that he could fall or get hurt from not knowing how to, but yet still waltzes with him. Putting a picture in the reader's mind that the poet wants to still be with his father, and that he wants to trust his father. The rhythmical use of meter Roethke incorporates in “My Papa’s Waltz” also helps the reader’s imagination. Just like Roethke’s usage of rhyme within the poem, his use of rhyme skeme helps the reader visualize this relationship between the father and the son in the poem.
MLA Heading Title While the subject of “My Papa’s Waltz” by Theodore Roethke has spurred passionate academic debate from professors, scholars, and students alike, the imagery, syntax, and diction of the poem clearly support the interpretation that Roethke writes “My Papa’s Waltz” to reminisce on a fond recollection of dancing and spending time with his father as a young boy. Roethke’s use of phrasing and diction allows for the reader to interpret contrasting meanings and storylines. On one hand people view the poem as a playful memory of Roethke and his father dancing through their home and having fun with each other.
Dreams are an essential of life, dreams give you hope for something you love to do. In Of Mice and Men written by John Steinbeck, dreams are used throughout the whole novel. It is shown how dreams keep friendships together and happy through life, like George and Lennie. Dreams give hope to the characters that try to get out of working. They push people to do what they love and to get out of the ranch.
