English Lit is the ultimate A-Level. I seriously considered doing it instead of history at uni actually. I did Of mice and Men for GCSE, its a top novel

Loneliness is the core of a broken soul. It feeds on
exile and hate. It engulfs dreams, pleasures and certain futures. Those
who live with loneliness everyday cannot express how deep of a feeling it
is to have everything you enjoy crushed by the absence of companionship.
In the novel, Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck explores the relationship of
loneliness to a human being by his three characters: Crooks, Candy and
Curly's wife. These characters are an example of how loneliness can
effect a person's life forever. Crooks is one of the loneliness
characters in the book and it is because of prejudice that he suffers
this exile. The fellow workers on the Ranch cause Crooks not to be a part
of their group because of the racism that existed in society in that
particular time period. Crooks is not allowed to be close friends with
anyone or participate in the fun stuff other Ranch workers are able to
enjoy. These things combined with others cause Crooks to feel inferior
and lonely. He feels as though there is no one on the Ranch he can be
friends with. Crooks is one of the loneliest people on the ranch and the
saddest because he is unable to do things normal people could do because
of his color. Candy was a character who felt the despair of loneliness
when he was forced to have his best and only friend killed. His friend
was a loyal and loving sheepdog that grew up with Candy and had stuck
with him through thick and thin. This destroyed Candy's heart and
replaced it with an empty pit of loneliness. Candy felt he had no one to
live for anymore. This is a horrible tragedy because Candy allowed the
lonesomeness to devour his hopes of living. Curly's wife was not a
character to pity much, although she did experience loneliness in the
story. She was lonely because everyone stereotyped her and refused to
talk to her on the Ranch. Curly's wife had dreams of becoming a great
actress in the movies, but married Curly because she wanted to get out of
her house. Her loneliness was not the worst kind. She was however
almost as much exciled as Crooks, yet she allowed her position on the
Ranch manipulate others so she could have friends. All these
characters were lonely. Crooks was lonely because of racism and exile.
Candy was lonely because the death of his friend and Curly's wife was
lonely for friends. Each character lost their dreams and hopes to
loneliness and it effected each of their lives differently. Crook's life
was effected by him excepting the racism and not fighting for what he
felt was right. Candy's life was effected by him not wanting to live
anymore. Curly's wifes life was effected by her getting killed because
she was so desperate to have a friend. Each of the characters felt the
feeling that only the lonely could feel.

i didnt copy and paste from another website honest :rolleyes: its interesting how loneliness is put in subtly in the book such as when the farm workers are playing solitaire --> which comes from the old french word solitary --> loneliness

Curly's wife is the main lonely character as she's the only woman which is why she flirts - try starting off with her

The movie was really good and the book is one of the best that I have done at GCSE...I couldn't disagree more.
