George only wants few dollars in his pocket and the chance to be his own man within the restricted parameters available to men like him. In the novel, Lennie and George discuss about their future dreams, “O.K. Someday – we’re gonna get the jack together and we’re gonna have a little house and a couple of acres an’ a cow and some pigs and– ” “An’ live off the fatta the lan’,” Lennie shouted. “An’ have rabbits. Go on George!
In Of Mice Of Men, I believe John Steinbeck’s greater message is that everyone has something that shows who they are and their story behind it. The author chose to focus on the dream and what it meant to the main characters. The main characters of the story George Milton and Lennie Small have a dream of living on a farm. In the context of the book Crooks the stable buck says “Just like heaven, everybody wants a little piece of land” (Steinbeck 74). This to George and Lennie symbolizes freedom and happiness to do as they please on their own land.
In John Steinbeck's novel “Of Mice and Men,” made into an enduringly popular movie, the lines about the rabbits have became emblems for the whole relationship between George and Lennie -- the quiet-spoken farm laborer and the sweet, retarded cousin he has taken under his arm. I would not have thought I could believe the line about the rabbits one more time, but this movie made me do it, as Lennie asks about the farm they'll own one day, and George says, yes, it will be just as they've imagined it. Lennie is played by John Malkovich and George is Gary Sinise, who also directed this film, using an adaptation by Horton Foote. The most sincere compliment I can pay them is to say that all of them - writer and actors - have taken every unnecessary gesture, every possible gratuitous note, out of these characters. The story is as pure and lean as the original fable which
George and Lennie 's farm and ¨fatta lan¨ (fat of land) (Steinbeck 3) symbolizes this dream because their farm would enable them to take care of themselves, and not have to worry about the ruthless outside world disturbing them. They would provide for themselves and take care of only themselves, with the exception of Candy. This dream is accompanied by the phrase that “we are all created equal” and should be treated equally. But this indeed
George consciously makes the decision to place the focus of Lennie’s mind on thing that Lennie desired most. George placed Lennie’s mind on the farm with the trees, the field of alfalfa, and most importantly the rabbits that Lennie would tend to. Lennie mentions numerous times, “I get to tend to the rabbits,” this dream of Lennie’s is the only thing that Lennie truly enjoys. George allows Lennie to relish in this dream one last time to let him enjoy his last moments of his life. When George and Lennie are still talking before Lennie is killed, Lennie says, “le’s do it now.
The cool thing about it is that she is the one that saved up to buy the puppy. All of these things made her responsible before she used to just sit on the couch, but now she is up and moving with her puppy. And it's nice to see her
Dreams allow people to have more optimistic takes on life. In Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, Candy, Curley’s Wife, and Lennie, all allowed their dreams to get them through tough times. The first example of this is Candy. Candy was able to live a more excited, happy life after he was to invited into Lennie and George’s plan to purchase a farm. He often thought about their soon to be home.
Of Mice and Men, a novel by John Steinbeck, happiness is the most intriguing, and clear desire to all of the characters in the short story novel Of Mice and Men. George became happy when he thought up the idea of having a ranch like when he was a kid, all he wanted to do was to be happy. He wanted no worries at all, no worries about where to sleep at night, no worries about food, nothing! So when you think about it, everything that George does in this book was to be happy, or was to make others happy. When Lennie said he wanted to tend the rabbits at the farm, this is all Lennie could think of.
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity. -(Khalil Gibran) Responsibility the word parents use to get their children to do their chores, has always been a sour word in our minds. Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck is a story of a mentally challenged strong grown man named Lennie, who likes to touch soft things, and his friend George, who keeps Lennie on track by doing what they do best, bucking barley. The two have been best friends since day one Lennie stayed with his Aunt Clara, and George with his pop and mom. When Aunt Clara died George took on the responsibility of caring for Lennie.
Well since I don’t know how to start an essay i'm just gonna start by saying,how you doing?I’ll give you time….ok we ready?So the movie of mice and men was an interesting and oddly satisfying movie. In the movie we see that George and Lennie run away from weed from the beginning and we get a chance to see how the chase was and the girl running and screaming,something we didn’t read in the book. Of Course in the book we do get information from George later on the story of why they left weed but we never heard that the men were riding in horses and chase them with dogs.I will compare and contrast the movie and the book over the course of this essay. Topic:characters In the movie we are greeted with the two main characters lennie and George.We
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck illustrates the power in the use of symbolism to deliver an overall message on the hope of living the American Dream. The farm symbolizes the hope which leads to the indulgence of living “off the fatta the lan” (15). The dream farm is a necessity not a want in the lives of Lennie and George because they are so engraved in this dream farm that it has become the reason why they are friends, why they have hope for a better life, why they are enduring the obstacles that has cross their paths. While the illusion of reaching the American Dream and being able to control their lives as they reach it has a positive impact on the well being of Lennie and George, it is not a reality because there will always be a goal,
