The point of view in the novella Of Mice and Men,that John Steinbeck used, is third person omniscient and objective. This means that the narrator, who is only observing, isn’t a character in the story and the narration is given by someone who knows everything about the character as well as the plot itself. Steinbeck’s wise decision to keep the narrator unanimous is to provide the readers and audience with an unbiased point of view and allowing them to make their own connections and analyze the characters and themes for themselves. This specific text or passage is trying to illustrate the theme of loneliness and the power of hope, dreams, and friendship. The author’s intention in writing this specific passage is to enforce the theme of friendship
Discrimination Present in Of Mice and Men John Steinbeck was born at the beginning of the twentieth century and experienced the turning point of many eras that are evidenced throughout his writings. Steinbeck lived through the strong economic years during World War I, the dirt poor years of the Great Depression, and even saw the beginnings of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s; all of his dreams for these decades are evidenced in his works, more specifically, Of Mice and Men. Of Mice and Men is set in the 1920’s in the Salinas Valley of California. Other writers, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, char-acterize the 1920’s as a fun decade with a booming economy filled with men rising from rags to riches, but Steinbeck shows how life was for men
Jack London had been an American novelist and is known for works such as The Call of the Wild, which McCandless greatly admired. Chris McCandless had greatly admired Jack London, going as far as carving “Jack London is King” at what came to be the site of his death. The Jack London quote used in the epigraph describes a scene in the forest but uses bitter imagery- yet somehow still romanticises it. “Alex” was unable to ever see past the facade London had built- given that London had hardly ever spent time in the wild himself and most definitely nowhere near as intense as Alaska. This chapter had described how he had been found and this quote leads back to that because though Chris was intelligent, he did not understand that London had to make nature sound beautiful.
The atmosphere of the ranch and the bunkhouse was anxiousness. I think the atmosphere was anxiousness because Lennie and George were new to the ranch and they were meeting new people and introduced to a new area. For example, when the guys got to the bunk house they were asking who stayed in George’s current bunk. “I ain’t so sure.” said George skeptically. “What did you say he quit for?” (19).
The symbolism and literary devices used in this chapter make it the best chapter of the story. One reason this chapter stands out is because of the symbolism the author uses. The predominant symbolism in this chapter is the Los Angeles River. This river reminds Gary of the canal in his hometown of Fresno that him and his best friend, Scott, used to visit. It symbolizes all of the ups and downs in Soto’s life, that are simply just a party of growing up.

In the final chapters of the book, after Equality and The Golden One have discovered their new house and proposed to build a new life, they read books in its intact library and so discover the forbidden word, “I” (94). This discovery prompts Equality to radically overhaul his entire way of going through life, aligning it to Rand’s Objectivist philosophy. His focus on himself, illustrated through his obsession with the word I is show in the last two chapters of the book, where he latches on to the idea that devoting one’s life to only oneself is the only appropriate way to live life. Rand shows this with statements from Equality such as, “I owe nothing to my brothers, nor do I gather debts from them”(96). Equality is proclaiming that his life will be best lived in a purely selfish manner, where he will not take care of anyone else, but will not ask anyone to take care of him either.
At first I wanted to argue with his ‘one story’ ideology, Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead got inside my head I suppose. However as he continued to engage with it, providing examples of how past works foster and provide a way to increase the depth of a story, I started to appreciate it more. It wasn’t that he was saying good literature only comes from traces of older works, and then adding their own traces to be applied similarly to new works. What he meant was that literature is emotions and experiences that tell what it means to be human, and as people evolve over time so does literature. In both there is a history to keep drawing from that impacts what happens from there on out.
Among the many potions and pills mankind has conjured up to defeat solitude and loneliness, companionship has proven through and through to be the most effective. Even through endless strife, companionship is really the only guaranteed happiness. In Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck addresses loneliness, apartness and the importance of man's commitment to man through the laborers of 1930's California. Steinbeck uses these laborers to describe solitude, the fruits of friendship and the importance of commitment to each other. The importance and need of togetherness in mankind plays an elusive, but vital role in the novel as it subtly appears time and time again.
In conclusion, The Great Gatsby is a work of fiction by F. Scott Fitzgerald which includes detailed characters, an exploration of universal themes about money and happiness, and the writings of an author with a very interesting life and influence for his writing. It is still relevant to the modern day because of its commentary on unhappiness in relationships and its powerful storyline about a man searching for joy. F. Scott Fitzgerald, in this masterpiece, successfully created a story to be read and celebrated for a long
