In the novel, Hawkbit says, “Hazel… we can’t go on like this. We’ve had enough of it” (Adams 50). The fact that Hawkbit, who served as a representative of himself and several other rabbits, persevered after saying he did not want to keep going and worked his way through the heather is significant. It is made very clear in the novel that the heather itself is extremely treacherous, as shown by the fact that Pipkin injures his paw by stepping on a large thorn. In addition, it is clear that the rabbits want very much to stop plowing their way through the seemingly endless heather and to simply return to the warren.
Lennie’s Experiences with Animals Foreshadow Death Lennie's experiences with animals foreshadow later events because the actions with animals are negative. They show that Lennie is out of control and careless. For example, Lennie has killed mice by only petting them, which was said in the passage. Next , when Carlson wants to shoot Candy’s dog right in the back of the head, Candy is hesitant because he has had the dog for a very long time. This foreshadows Lennie’s death when he is shot right in the back of the head by George, who really does not want to because George has been beside Lennie for so long and how innocent and benevolent Lennie had been.
Lennie knew that his repetitive tendency to get in trouble took a toll on George, and Steinbeck does include details in the novel showing that Lennie was aware of George’s frustrations. For example, when Lennie runs away to hide in the forest right before the scene where George kills him, Lennie imagines a gigantic rabbit criticizing him, “ ‘Well he[George]’s sick of you,’ said the rabbit. ‘ He’s gonna beat the hell outta you an’ then go away an’ leave you.’...’the rabbit repeated softly over and over, ‘He gonna leave you...He gonna leave ya all alone.’ ”(Steinbeck 102) Since this rabbit is part of Lennie’s imagination, the rabbit represents his subconscious thought, showing that he had dwelled upon the idea of George leaving him quite a bit. He always said he could run away and not be a burden upon George, but since George only ever helped Lennie, Lennie struggled to grasp a reality of George not being at his side. Likewise, when George finds Lennie in the woods before he kills him, Lennie expects George to yell at him and be angry about him killing Curley’s wife, “Lennie looked eagerly at him.
The main characters are Little Rabbit and Big Rabbit and other secondary characters. Once, the Little Rabbit Witnessed the Terrible Things. They came to forest because they were searching for any creature that possess feathers. Every other creature was looking at each other to see who had feathers. The frogs, squirrels, porcupines, fish, and rabbits said no.
“If you just happen to get in trouble like you always done before hide here in the brush.” Because he has gotten in trouble before he wants him to hide, and they repeat it multiple times throughout the story. Also, Lennie kills his puppy. Lennie says,”Why do you got to get killed? You ain’t so little as mice.” He kills something bigger and right after, curley’s wife comes into the barn hinting that something bad will happen. These show how Steinbeck uses foreshadowing in the story.
As they tend to say “Curiosity kills the cat.” In this book “The Red Badge of Courage” the young boy Henry tends to flee from his second battle. That is quite strange because we would think someone would run from their first battle because they should be scared of what is going to happen. The reason why henry didn’t flee the first battle was because first off, henry probably thought that since he could conquer the first battle that the second got too intense for him. Secondly Henry was just following along to what the other soldiers did. Lastly, Henry was just plain old scared as they said “He ran like a coward.” The second war was like Henrys’ first brutal battle it was obviously too intense for him.

1. In the novel The Talented Mr.Ripley by Patricia Highsmith, live life on a whim was a theme represented through the actions of Thomas Ripley. Repeatedly Tom was put into situations, where terrible thoughts would creep into his mind, and he would dive right at them. “He wanted to kill Dickie… He would have to tint his hair a little lighter.. He had only to look enough like Dickie to be able to use his passport..” (Highsmith 96-97).
All that Lennie wanted was to feel the animals soft fur, but ends up doing terrible things. At the end of the book the same thing happens with Curley’s wife, and ultimately Lennie. In the book Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, Lennie kills a series of animals, foreshadowing the death of Curley’s wife. The first grim sign occurred early in the novel. The two friends are just arriving at their camp by the river, and George notices something strange in
“I shall kill you and the entire rabbit tribe, if I am not set free,” threatened the moon. The rabbit was terrified to the point that he rushed back to inform his grandma about his strange and interesting prisoner. Although a wise, old rabbit, she too got afraid when she heard her grandson’s tale. She advised her grandson, “Go quickly to the spot and release your prisoner at once, or all the rabbits will be in danger.” The rabbit returned, and told the moon man, “I will set you free, but there is one condition.” The moon man was angry, yet asked the rabbit, “Tell me what you want, you silly animal.” The rabbit told the moon-man, “Promise me that you shall never return and steal from my traps.” “There is one more precondition,” said the rabbit. “Be quick with it, you stupid animal,” said the moon-man.
