a story that uses character types to represent specific ideas and create a universal message. In Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck uses his characters, locations, animal imagery, and a simple game of cards to demonstrate to his readers that most people dream about lives of great significance. But in reality, most humans’ limitations keep these dreams from coming true, and in the long run, they are destined to experience common lives
Yeah...I Just need the significance of their names lol
Lennie, with his mental handicap, can intuitively feel that the bunkhouse is not a good place. After meeting Curley, Lennie tells George, “I don’t like this place, George. This ain’t no good place. I wanna get outa here.” And as soon as Curley’s wife comes alone to the bunkhouse, George knows exactly where the trouble is going to originate. He cautions Lennie not to talk to Curley’s wife and to stay away from Curley. It is also in the bunkhouse that we see discrimination (against Candy and Crooks), cruelty (Curley’s wife’s attack on Crooks and Curley’s attack on Lennie), insensitivity (Carlson’s killing Candy’s dog), and suspicion (Curley’s jealousy, several characters presumptions about why Lennie and George are traveling together). This is also a world in which fate often plays a hand, and the humans are frequently defenseless and see their “best laid plans” go awry.
