of mice and men :: essays research papers
Of Mice and Men is a book about the socially oppressed and about migrant workers. The workers went through a lot of things in this story. There are many themes in this book, which had to do with them. These themes are violence, nature, loneliness and dreams. Out of these themes I think that loneliness was the most important. However, all the themes played a part in the workers lives. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã A dream is pictures and ideas a person has in their mind. Dreams are special to people and show how they feel. George and Lennie were the main characters, who had a dream. George and Lennie have been together for a long time and they talked about their dreams. They both just would like to own a farm with animals and a garden. They donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to have anyone bossing them around anymore. They just want to be their own boss and do what they want to do. They want to be able to run everything their way and no one elseÃ¢â¬â¢s. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Violence is a force, which is damaging and negative. There were a few characters that experienced violence in this book. The main one was Curley. He always likes to pick fights with bigger guys and cause trouble. He also likes to threaten people about them getting close to his wife. Another person who caused violence was Lennie. Lennie isnÃ¢â¬â¢t a violent person he just canÃ¢â¬â¢t help hurting things. He doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t mean to cause any of the violence that he puts out. He wouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t be violent at all if he could just control his strength. Carlson was another person that showed some violence. He kept on pushing Candy about killing his dog. When he ended up killing Candy's dog it didn't even bother him he just did it and went on with his life. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Nature is living things like the animals and plants. Nature is a beautiful thing that is being ruined by man. In the book the workers cut down trees and build things with it. They donÃ¢â¬â¢t care about nature at all they just ruin it. The only person that might have liked nature was Lennie, when he mentioned about living in a cave. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Loneliness is when a person feels isolated on the inside, not really important to anyone. Loneliness is a very big theme in this book. Many of the characters experienced this. This is a very sad thing, which I think no one should have at all.
