Hey, so I've got revision homework to help with my exam in Jan, and the question is the one above. I've got Lennie being like a bear and the mice but I can't think of any more. Help, I'm really confused

thanks

Remember the dog? How it gets shot in the back of the head, the same thing that happens to Lennie.

From what I remember of GCSE English, the rabbit Lennie finds and eventually crushes is a reflection of Lennie himself. The rabbit is fragile and weak, much like Lennie, and the two suffer the same fate.

Curly's dog again foreshadows Lennie's fate, as the dog is put down for its own good, much like Lennie at the hands of his companion George.

(p.s. I got an A at GCSE English for my exam on Of mice and Men )
