    When I studied of mice and men we focused on these along with; Predatory nature of human existence, isolation and idealised male relationships

    Racism - crooks
    prejudice - candy and curley's wife
    isolation - everyone essentially
    death, - candy's dog can foreshadow the events with curley's wife
    sexism - curley''s wife but also old susy (they say she has nice chairs, but they never directly speak about the prostitutes, same as with Curley's wife, they are property, even if to old susy)
    power - each person has a desire for power, just as with the dream
    psychological needs (maslow) - i have an a* essay if you'd like it
    dreams - the american dreams, but also the death of dreams such as crooks and curley's wife's.
    loneliness - everyone is lonely, come on you've read the novel
    friendship - G+L can say after L dies that S replaces him there is friendship everywhere
    loss - can talk about context here and how people lost their money in the wall street crash but then link it to loss of rights and respect and therefore resulting to a dream which causes a loss of grasp on reality
    fear - one example is when curley's wife threatens to get crooks killed
    respect - all respect those above but slim is an exception as he is respected by those above
    symbolism one symbol in the novel is the fact that OMAM is based around a poem. Do a little research before the exam
    there are hundreds.

    Good luck guys, if you need any more help with OMAM or animal farm or poetry hit me up x

    There's also fate, where you can link the novella to Robert Burn's poem 'To a mouse', where the poet says "The best laid schemes o' mice and men/ gang aft a gley". (Don't invest too much of your thoughts into the future as they will fail and the time spent building them up will have been in vain.) So basically their dream was fated to elude them as it was so unlikely to succeed in that time and Lennie's imperfections meant that they wouldn't achieve their perfect dream of the little farm.
