In the third chapter of Of Mice and Men the main topic I believe is innocence. In this chapter Lennie gets one of Slim's dogs. When Lennie gets the dog he doesn’t realize the things he can’t do with such a young dog. “ You get right up an’ take this pup back to the nest. He’s gotta sleep with his mother.

This gives Jem the idea that Boo isn 't some horrible monster after all. “Atticus believes Jem killed Ewell in self-defense, but Tate makes him realize that Boo Radley actually stabbed Ewell and saved both children 's lives.”(lee 28) This quote shows that the children had been put in a situation where the so-called “monster” Boo Radley saved their lives and they now could look at him not as some maniac but a hero and regular person who stays inside to protect himself from the stereotypes and cruelty of the world because of something people had said and that had been spread throughout the
There is a significance between the poem, "To a Mouse," by Robert Burns and, "Of Mice and Men," by John Steinbeck.

The novel, Of Mice and Men is about two friends, George and Lennie, who are ranch workers during the Great Depression. When the plough man destroyed the mouse 's warm place, he faced nothing but grief and pain. In the text, "The best laid schemes of mice and men.
Of Mice And Men John Steinbeck’s novella ‘Of Mice and Men’ published in the 1930’s employs carefully considered narrative techniques that effectively inject sympathy within the reader. The chain of events are foreshadowed through speech, Death and Lennie Small. Curlys Wife soon becomes the instrument who destroys the dream. Steinbeck demonstrates this through various techniques including of foreshadowing, realism, symbolism, circular structure, significance of the title and setting. One of the predominant themes that govern the story and characters in the book is friendship, "Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world” Lennie And George are very lucky to have each other, although they are rather different to one another,

That’s a great animated film” (Lasseter). The movie success in having fun characters but fails in delivering a story that leaves a clear message and touches the audience. Multiple opportunities to bring awareness to the problem with the abandoned pets were wasted; meanwhile, the comments made toward the topic were vague and off timed failing to engage the viewer and leave a message. Despite all of that, there's no doubt that it is a funny movie, even the parents of the children that filled the theater cracked a couple of laughs with the visual gags and references. The one-liners and poop jokes are the life savers in a story that with the new characters is likable, but doesn't earn a place in your DVD
This essay is about The book Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck. The story is about two men, George and Lennie, who get a new job at a ranch, and how they go about their lives there, taking place in the early 1900s. I think that the author was successful in making Lennie a sympathetic Character. One of my reasons is that he likes things that are soft, and he tries to pick them up whenever he finds them. For example, In the first chapter, Lennie found a dead mouse on the side of the road, and put it in his pocket.
In addition, the book does not present George as having enjoyed killing Lennie, in fact, it is quite the opposite. After killing Lennie, George is stiff and numb, and Slim, a farmhand, decides to take him for a drink. Of Mice and Men should be read in schools and be available in libraries, not banned from people’s access. The sympathetic characters, compelling plot, and a strong companionship that runs throughout the book are all positive aspects of keeping this book available to read. Throughout their journeys, Lennie and George hoped that they could acquire a small farm, and this hope brought them through many difficult times together.
