What are some key themes in Of Mice and Men?Watch
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
