    Is it a possibility that AQA will ask us about Carlson in 'Of Mice and Men'?

    You mean Carlson in Of Mice and Men of course? And yeah, there's always a possibility, they could ask you about any character and their significance.

    Ahh thanks, obviously they could ask about anyone but relating Carlson to context may be a little difficult.

    After years of working on a ranch and only looking out for himself, Carlson has become mean. He's a bitter, coarse, ugly man who only thinks about himself and
    apparently can't even understand why Candy would disagree ("He ain't no good to you, Candy. An' he ain't no good to himself") about shooting the only friend he's ever had.

    When Carlson says to Slim, "Whyn't you get Candy to shoot his old dog and give him one of the pups to raise up? I can smell that dog a mile away. Got no teeth, damn near blind, can't eat. Candy feeds him milk. He can't chew nothing else", it shows that Carlson takes people or things for themselves if they are useful. Carlson doesn't respect and understand Candy's love and his dogs problems unlike Slim who does with great honour. However, it does take a stark arrogrant man to shoot someone else's dog.
