Some of the things that will help is to have cats that stay at the barn. Both have a dream together. Unfortunately, this plan does not work out in the end. For this reason, events often appear to be random. He lived separated from other people because he was black. Slim tries to break the silence in the room by telling Candy that he can have one of his puppies.
Our world does not take well todifference. He decides to take Candy up on the offer. In the bunkhouse, they meet an old guy named Candy. Lennie and George have hurriedly left their last ranch following an incident involving Lennie. This makes the reader feel that all Candy can think about is his dog being shot, and this also brings a tense feel.
I think that the barn is important as steinbeck has a hidden message in it. Lennie can have what he likes the best — soft rabbits to pet — and he will feel safe. Steinbeck tries to show that man cannot understand everything that happens, nor can he control the world around him. The dirty and unappealing imagery of dust and flies perhaps represents the hopelessness of the situation of the men in the bunkhouse. He also asked Slim for help but Slim ignored him. Comment by jjspencer March 29, 2007 The bunkhouse was a long house with unpainted floors, and had only a few small windows. In opposition to these two positive symbols is the bunkhouse, which represents the cruel world of reality.
This will increase the awkward atmosphere in the room because no one is quite sure as to how Candy can be comforted. He converses with Lennie and George, and is quietly impressed by their friendship, appreciating the fact that they look out for one another. At the time the book was set, which is in the 1930's great American depression, many people were unemployed and jobs were hard to come by. They just cared about themselves. Therefore, indicates the lack of identity the habitants have. Animals are significant in the story both through symbolism andreflecting characters' personalities.
As Carlson and Curley watch Slim lead George away, Carlson says to Curley. Candy and Lennie have dream of having their own farm, inspired by George. George used to play tricks on Lennie when he was younger, but once when he told him to jump into the river, and Lennie did, he nearly drowned. Migrant workers moved from place to place to find work, without any proper relationship with others. This makes it seem like a very quiet atmosphere. Slim tries to break the silence in the room by telling Candy that he can have one of his puppies.
When they arrive in the ranch we learn that the boss is a person that cares for people weaker than other. Candy then explains how he lost his hand on this ranch a long time ago, so they gave him two hundred and fifty dollars and how he saved up fifty more since then plus he has fifty more coming to him at the end of the month. I have found no sure way to keep them out of a barn. Curley's wife is her name. With a description of the setting! She tried to cover up her loneliness and sought companion in the wrong way.
When Candy enters crooks room, he says 'i never been in here before' we realise that in all of the years candy and crooks have worked alongside each other, they have never talked. He wants to be accepted by the others because he feels so alone that it drives him mad. It shows how hard it was to get a job. The characters do not want the silence present, meaning the shot will be heard by Candy. Candy regrets his decision to allow Carlson to shoot his dog, thinking he should have done it himself, but is pleased to help Lennie and George buy a farm. This will increase the awkward atmosphere in the room because no one is quite sure as to how Candy can be comforted. The characters do not want the silence present, meaning the shot will be heard by Candy.
Even though the woman claimed she had been raped, Lennie never hurt her. Have students discuss what features of the room need to be in the forefront and where most of the action would play. George's Solitaire game in the bunkhouse is exactly that. George is the leader to made their dream come true. He genuinely loves them, but is unable to handle them gently.
