    Maybe section a would be how Steinbeck presents Candy/Carlson during the scene (although I think it is better suited to Carlson). If it were Carlson you could say:
    Insensitive
    Aggressive
    The Luger shows his attitude to death- it is already loaded and he is prepared to kill.
    Asks for Slims approval

    Then section B could be how animals are use to present life in rural America? There is a lot to say on that:
    Rabbits
    Horses
    Mouse
    Puppies
    Heron and the water snake
    Curley and his wife as fish.

    If these came up, I think it would be a decent question tbh! Also, Candy has come up before in January 2011. Gerald also came up in 2011 for AIC. Good luck everyone!


    for the rabbits you could use the quote "and red and blue and green rabbits" i believe said by lennie when talking about their future ranch that they will own shows how deluded the american dream has made them become and how hypnotising the american dream is from the true reality of the conditions of the ranch and what was going on during that time. AS THOSE COLOUR RABBITS DONT EXIST

    for context (if racism comes up), this is what i came up with:

    the book of mice and men was banned in the 1990s by most american schools from studying it as it was associated with links to it promoting euthanasia and using a high influx of racial slurs and offensive language. however steinbeck did not intend to promote the use of these words, instead ridicule and criticize it. this is because steinbeck's aim here was not to emulate the racial beliefs many of the american society were in concord with during the 1930s but instead to reveal the truth about lives of ranch workers and the abuse the less fortunate received, such as candy and his dog along with crooks. he approached the characters with a sense of realism, linking with the vocabulary they would have used in the times to black people such as crooks, which although is severe, vulgar and offensive, steinbeck purposefully uses it to show the audience the difficulty and wrongness within the words.

    It shows slims authority because he is 'god like' and also Carlson is just an ordinary worker who obeys whoever ... He exists he has no dream

    Do you guys/ gals think that Inspector Goole could come up considering he came up in 2012's January paper? I'm thinking it'll be either Gerald, Sheila, Mrs B or The Inspector!
    Yeah I think it would probably be inspector Goole coming up tomorrow if not maybe Mr.Birling
