Of mice and men
by John Steinbeck
Summary of Mice and men
Mice and Men is a parable about what it means to be human. Steinbeck's story of George and Lennie's ambition of owning their own ranch, and the obstacles that stand in the way of that ambition, reveal the nature of dreams, dignity, loneliness, and sacrifice. Ultimately, Lennie, the mentally handicapped giant who makes George's dream of owning his own ranch worthwhile, ironically becomes the greatest obstacle to achieving that dream. Lennie can not keep him self away from furry things. This might be a problem for them later. Can Lennie pull him self together in order to have his own ranch or will he get in trouble.
Loneliness and Companionship
''An' live off the fatta the lan',''(Steinbeck14).
I hate having to watch Lennie but he is like a brother to me. He may be dumb but it is not his fault. He was born with his dumbness. He just annoys me and i cant do nothing about it.
I like anything that is soft. My favorite is the small animals like rabbits and mice. I feel bad because I always squish there little heads when i try to love them.
Why does Lennie always have to kill things that are smaller than him? We know that he does not know his own strength but he needs to stop.
