Another example that Steinbeck shows is when Curly tries to fight Lennie by smashing” down his nose with a right.”(63) John Steinbeck shows in this quote that Lennie does not fight back when Curly is punching him in the face because he is dumb. When Lennie kills the puppy he yells “ God damn you” now George is not going to let me tend no rabbit.

He lists the injustice each animals face such as the horse having her children taken away and hens having their eggs taken. MLK also doesn’t tell his audience about any of his personal experiences unlike Old Major. Old Major says how he has seen the cruel acts of Jones and this helps the audience relate better because they begin to fear the same will happen to them.
