John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men portrays the migrant workers during the Great Depression, telling the downfall of two migrant workers, George and Lennie, working on a ranch, pursuing their American Dream – having their own land with rabbits, in a straightforward style. The author used not only major but also minor characters to bring out themes and reflect social issues during that time, for instance, social hierarchy, social injustice, sexism, the weak against the strong and innocence versus violence, also to foreshadow different events of the plot. First of all, the author uses the boss to illustrate the social hierarchy and injustice in the society during the Great Depression. In the novella, the boss is the one who runs the ranch and is well-dressed. He only appeared in the second chapter, interviewing George and Lennie, and acted quite generously, had a good impression in the workers mind – “he’s a pretty nice fella,” as Candy once said.

Because this meadow is so close to the ranch, humans act like invasive species ruining the area in which they don’t belong.

A common question you may hear from the readers of Hamlet is, “Was it really worth it for Hamlet to kill all of those innocent people to avenge his father’s death?” Well, if you think about it in a more technical way, Hamlet was asked by his father’s ghost to avenge him of being murdered by Claudius, and along the way of Hamlet’s plans, he took the whole situation overboard. He killed plenty more people than he was assigned to kill and none of the victims even deserved to be killed, with Claudius being the exception. In my opinion, Hamlet’s actions aren’t justified, even though his plan was to kill Claudius for the sake of his father, he began to get a little reckless and killed many other characters for no reason in the process. Some things that can’t be backed up with an excuse is the foul treatment of Gertrude, the bad treatment of Ophelia, the delaying of avenge and the final killing of Claudius. According to (doc c), Gertrude is proven guilty by Hamlet after he kills Polonius by accident, thinking Polonius was Claudius.

The writer’s detailed description of his first hunt by himself from what he smelled to tasting dust helped me imagine what exactly went on at the time of the kill.
