Is Animal Fantasy the same as Anthropomorphism? The easy answer is “Yes!” The difference between animal fantasy and anthropomorphism is that animal fantasy can be called the ‘main title’ while anthropomorphism can be called the ‘subtitle’ or a ‘theme’ of the animal fantasy. In animal fantasies, animals have human traits and either all or some of the animals are anthropomorphic ones. They can either talk, have emotions which they can express like humans, or are able to reason, ask questions and have their opinions just like humans. It is also possible that these fantasy stories incorporate all these traits in the animals.
For Lennie, this always manages to conjure up enlightening thoughts within his head whenever the farm, rabbits, or even any other soft and pettable animals are mentioned within the story. Much like with George, the farm may represent freedom and happiness, but, for Lennie, it is simply an entrance to soft animals in general—which is an independence and jollity in itself. While the rabbits for Lennie represent such a positive feature in his life, ironically, they also act as a parallel too. Lennie admires the rabbits and often ponders of taking care of them, but his inability to be gentle around other animals in general reflects the downfall of his fondness for them in the
But, the house was too small, and it got destroyed. This shows how even for the mice, the plans went off track, and didn't go the way he wanted them to go.

The tie between the mice and humans is that their plans will possibly go awry.

I would say that Lennie is comfortable meaning that he is a superior and charming guy and even though he looks tenacious he 's the complete opposite. I know these things because in the book Lennie finds a mouse running around and he picks it up and starts playing with it, but George tells him to leave the mouse alone but he doesn’t want to let go because the mouse is comforting. This that Lennie has could mean comfort. Lennie is having the mouse and not letting go because he is soft could mean that it comforts Lennie and calms him down. This attribute affects the story because Lennie wouldn’t be the one in the story to start a fight or stand up for himself in any way nor he would let George do it because he’s too

When I was younger, I was afraid of something that is exceedingly common among young children. I was afraid of the dark. Even though I knew that there was no monster waiting for me to walk into a dark room and eat me as a snack, I was still extremely scared. Shadows of some chairs look like a person standing in my room watching me sleep, the creaking of the house sounded like footsteps, and branches of trees hitting against a window sounded like a person knocking on the door that only I could hear. My active imagination and lack of logic is what made me afraid of the dark.
Gregor Samsa’s Isolation in Frank Kafka’s The Metamorphosis All throughout Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, a constant theme of isolation shows through the main character, Gregor Samsa, who one morning spontaneously transforms into an insect. Kafka displays a motif of solitude from the beginning of the story through Gregor’s desire to stay behind in his room and not go to work or go about any of his daily responsibilities. From the realization of his transition to a vermin, Gregor’s isolation is even more evident because of rejection he receives from his family members who do not understand what happened to him. The immediate presentation of isolation in the story suggests a foreshadowing of Gregor’s further rejection and seclusion resulting in

Another thing that led the narrator close to insanity was basically being isolated in the house.
