This scared the girl and Lennie and George had no choice but to leave. This when George says to Lennie (...Doc B…) if you jus’ happen to get in trouble like you always done before, I want you to come right here an’ hide in the brush. This foreshadows that Lennie will get in trouble and have to come here. Another clue to Curley’s wife’s death is the puppy he owned died due to it being fragile and Lennie is too rough.
Surly Curley Surly is defined as being “bad-tempered and unfriendly.” This is the perfect definition for the curly-haired antagonist of Of Mice and Men. Most will say there is no justification behind Curley's hostility. He was rude to Lennie upon meeting him, was controlling over his wife, he attacked Lennie, didn't mourn his wife's death, and arranged for Lennie's murder. While you can sum up that Curley is a total jerk and deserves punishment, you can also analyze the text further.
He says, “You talk about it a hell of a lot, but you won’t get no land.” Crooks has seen many people with that dream that never did it, and he didn’t get to see someone get the land they wanted anyway. These events lead to and foreshadow the farm dream being dead. The second event that Steinbeck uses foreshadowing is, curley’s wife being killed. George tells lennie to hide in the brush if he gets in trouble.

She said she would no longer be Andy. She would be Andrea. At this moment, she knew that growing into a young woman was as inevitable as her waking and sleeping. All in all, “Doe Season” is a short story that symbolizes a young girl trying to come to grips with maturing into a young woman. She steps out of her comfort zone by expanding beyond the woods she is so familiar with, reminisces about her mom, and how she may look as a young mature woman.
Curley’s wife resists this and becomes scared, she screams for help. A panicked Lennie grabs her and stops her from screaming, unknowingly suffocating her. Lennie runs away, fearing the worst, leaving her dead body. With this, the entire plantation was after Lennie. A scared Lennie rushes to his friend Georges need.
When they were at Weed, Lennie touches the lady’s red dress to feel the soft material. The lady thinks he is threatening her which led them to run out of Weed. In the text it says, “So he reaches out to feel this red dress an’ the girl lets out a squawk… He was so scairt he couldn’t let go of that dress… Well, that girl rabbits in an’ tells the law that she been raped” (Steinbeck 41-42). This shows that Lennie causes a dilemma that leads them out of their old workplace, Weed.
Edgar Allen Poe is trying to convince the readers that the main character feels guilty for killing the old man. There are many parts in the story where Poe wants the reader to understand that even though the main character seems foolish he still feels sorrow.

Vicious, violent, aggressive, cocky, and rude. All of these adjectives describe Tybalt. Adjectives like those don’t describe an innocent man. Does this sound like a man who would be innocent of a murder that he obligated? In William Shakespeare’s
One of the longstanding questions among humankind is whether our lives are controlled by fate or personal choice. Many theories have been developed by scientists, theorists, the general population, and authors from several generations. One of the most controversial writers of his time, John Steinbeck analyzes this idea from his point of view in his novella, Of Mice and Men. Steinbeck contributes to the perspective that despite dedication and determination, most situations are beyond our control and fate is inevitable in the end. This theme is consistently demonstrated through Lennie throughout the book.
