Choosing a novel to write about is somewhat hard for some. There are many novels given to us to pick from, but they are usually all older novels. Myself, I don’t like reading older books and I don’t give them a chance. To be quite honest, these “literature classics” are actually really good books, and that is why most professors or teachers choose these novels for us to read and analyze. I chose Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck. Of Mice and Men is an easy read, and Steinbeck does not sugar coat anything, which is probably the reason it is so controversial to read in schools. Although it is an easy read, Of Mice and Men contains complex ideas and themes not necessarily fit for people approximately younger than fifteen. Another reason I am so attached to this novel is because I remember reading it in high school. I had felt sorry for Lennie because at the time, I was still a teenager. Just like Lennie, I was misunderstood, so I could relate to how he felt. That is why I enjoy this novel because it is relatable in many aspects. “George killed Lennie not only to protect others, but to protect Lennie himself.” When I first read the book in high school, I had struggled to understand why George killed Lennie at the end of the novel when I first read it. Now that I have read the novel a good amount of times and I am older now, I finally have an idea as to why he did it. Throughout the novel, I noted that Lennie is always getting into trouble that George has to deal with and try to fix. If the problem cannot be fixed, George and Lennie have to leave Salina.

Well, I have concluded that John Steinbeck chose that title for his novella because he wanted to express something extraordinary, like showing the future. Moreover, of showing the future he wanted to express and show us the journey and the mystery that George and Lennie will have throughout the story. Nevertheless, he felt that he wasn’t showing the depth in the events that will happen. For example, his first idea of the title was “Something that Happen”. Which, when I read it, I have a feeling that…

Dreams are life goals with no deadlines. They are the idea of an ideal life and perfect situation that people strive to live for, or just sitting in the back of their mind as a place of comfort and hope. The novel Of Mice And Men has a very dominant theme of dreams and how they can affect characters and their outlook on life. Dreams keeps you hopeful about the future, stuck in the past, or put a damper on your current life
The dream that played the biggest part in the story was George and Lennie’s…

This can also be interpreted as a representation of Bud as the movement of right to left is seen as a movement of going back in time which ultimately Bud is doing by choosing not to go with Albie and John, returning to his sense of safety of being alone within his home. The fact that it is a child and a mother figure is also significant in this instant as it represents Bud and the relationship he shares with his own mother…
