George and Lennie want this big farm and some land so they can raise animals and sell them. They just want a better life overall. The farm represents a new begining for George and Lennie. They left home a long time ago to start something new and they're trying to make something of themselves.

"With us it ain't like that. We got a future. We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us. We don't have to sit in no bar room blowin' in our jack jus' because we got no place else to go. If them other guys gets in jail they can rot for all anybody gives a damn. But not us." said George

The bunk house is a very small place, little movement and little ventilation. It is a major step from where Lennie and George were previously living. They would camp out and sleep in dangerous places and get in trouble along the way. As they make it to their destination, they are living in bunk houses and it is way better to be in a set place where they know where they're laying their heads at, at night. Life on the ranch still has its problems but are way better than being out on the sides of roads looking for work or transportation. George lies to the boss because he didn't want to potentially mess up any opportunities he's going have.


Curley is the type of young man who is always ready for something and doesn't like too many things and if anything doesn't go his way he gets upset. He picked that fight with Lennie for no reason. Curley thought Lennie was laughing at him but in reality had the slightest clue of what was goin on.

Curley got offended by Lennie smiling. George advises Lennie to avoid Curley, that he is just a burden. Lennie answers that he doesn't care for this place, and he wanted to leave.No doubt is this great advice because as we all know that Lennie has gotten into some trouble in the past and doesn't want the wrong thing being done or said. George protected Lennie in a sense of not making sure he doesn't get into any trouble and also making sure they can still attain this job.

Loneliness. There are two characters that I believe represent loneliness and that is Lennie and Crooks. I believe Lennie is lonely because thoughout the book you can see that he has a bubbly personality. He loves to touch things and he just cares so much about other people and other things. Some things that Lennie touches aren't best for him. He has lost his aunt who was caring for him at the time and that's how he ended up being with George. Crooks is also a person who deals with loneliness beauce he is the minority and he is african american.

He experiences isolation being in his room all by himself and no one talks to him or acknowledge him. What causes them to be lonley is that they are the minority of everyone. Lennie is slow in some areas and Crooks is an african american. They could come together and make things better for them.
