because the novel is set in the time of The Great Depression, you could talk about how the fact that George and Lennie are travelling together demonstrates a secure and solid bond of friendship between them as farmers would usually travel alone in this time to give them a better chance of finding work.

there's also the fact they share a dream together, which can be a very intimate thing - George aims to inspire hope in Lennie which in turn inspires it in himself, showing the depth of their relationship.

can't really think of much else, been a few years since i did of mice and men haha

You can also expand this in context: that on the Ranch, all the workers have a sort of 'what?' reaction to this loving relationship from George and Lennie. During the Great Depression, every man lives for himself - survival of the fittest, which leads to isolation being a common theme throughout the novella and vice versa.

Help what would you grade my essay about Crooks

Essay regarding crooks


‘of mice and men’ Crooks speaks for black American and how they are isolated by society. Of mice and men Crooks get discriminated by the other members of the ranch based on his skin colour although racism was abolished at that time in America. However, workers still continue this act by putting him in an abandoned plain barn house. In his barn house there is a lot of significant high standard books and it reflects on who the real Crook is.


He is a knowledgeable, decent, resourceful, sharp, brainy etc. Sorrowfully no one is aware that. Considering the fact that Crooks
has been working his entire life and he kind of forgotten on
how to communicate with other people. When Lennie enters unexpectedly Crook doesn't really know what to say to Lennie.
When Lennie revealed his idea that he came up with George Crooks looks glum and cheerless Lennie said ‘Why don't you have any friend’ (or a similar concept) Crook said in a dull voice ‘Because I’m black!’ This show that Crooks is really hurt and dismal.

There is a lack of respect toward Crooks as you know
from the start that the worker’s express their emotion by saying
He is a ‘‘slave’’. That what they called him by his skin colours not his Ability or personally they also call him a ‘Stable buck ******’.
