Lastly Crooks goes through this theme because he has to stay in a room next to the barn and is isolated from the others because he is black.

In my essay I will be presenting the poets feelings and attitudes in two poems and I will be looking at language features and presentation features. The two poems that I will be studying is the Farmers Bride and Sister Maude, the Farmers bride was written by Charlotte Mew and it is about the broken marriage of the farmer and his bride, Sister Maude was written by Christina Rosetti and is a story of betrayal and conflict. Farmers Bride is about a young woman who becomes afraid during her marriage and starts to present herself as a very timid and afraid lady. This is shown in the following quote, “when us was wed she turned afraid of love and me and all things human;” it is clear that she was soon afraid of all things human and she didn’t show no love towards the farmer as she was afraid of him. With all this in mind it is clear that the Farmers Bride felt nothing but fear not only towards her husband but to any form of
My opinion towards Curley’s Wife, is that she can be a little too flirty at times. I understand that she is lonely when her husband is at work and/or at the whore house, but I think that she should be able to keep it under control. To be honest I hate her. I say this because she is always trying to get people in trouble, she’s always causing trouble, and she never once does anything on her own, she’s always has to go bother the guys, like Lennie. For example in Chapter 5, when Lennie is in the barn, getting all flustered and frustrated because he had just killed the pup on accident because he was play fighting with him, Curley’s Wife came in, and started bothering him.
The book begins with the two of them making their way to a ranch after being fired from their last job, which was working on a farm in the town of Weed. Lennie and George were forced to run from Weed because Lennie was being accused of a violent crime that he did not commit; however, during the Great Depression and especially in the West violence was widespread as people were frustrated and angry due to the lack of money, food, and very often, housing. Steinbeck realized this and incorporated it in this novel. He utilized violence as its driving force. In Of Mice and Men violence serves as the catalyst for
The Glass Castle journal #2 4.12.17 The next part in the story is when the family starts to escape and run away from all of their problems. I read pages seventeen to forty seven. We meet their grandmother and the rest of the family is all mentioned in the section. We figure out that the people that are chasing them are the “Bill Collectors” and they are trying to run away from them. The conflict in the story is that when the Walls meet up at their grandmother’s house and their dad gets in a lot of verbal fights with her.
He is the only black man there so he is not allowed in the bunkhouse. Another way that loneliness shows in a character is through Candy. His dog was his best friend and after he died he could only cope with the loneliness by following Lennie and George 's dream. Another way it is shown in the book is through Curley 's wife. She tried to deal with it by flirting with other workers on the ranch because her husband does not give her attention.
