    It's a very nice subtle point to include, but as long as you're aware of it then you don't need to do any 'special' revision for it - it's open book so you'll be able to look up quotations if they're relevant

    Yep
    What did you do quote wise? I'm trying to sort out my notes but I don't know if I should be remembering a few quotes that are specific to each character or to each theme (or both )

    I didn't remember specific quotes, I remembered the episodes where I knew I could find good quotes, so I could flick to them easily in the exam I already knew a few basic ones just from the repetition of doing them in class, but it's good to just have a general knowledge of where and when each theme/ character is best exemplified

    Imagery, you could say was Steinbeck's way of conveying the interrelationships between nature and man. He pondered upon Lennie's innocence, by using salient descriptors that resembled that of an Animal. It's important to revise, especially if the question requires you to dwell on the motifs of the play

    i've seen a question on this whole theme once.
    here's some few points i got but i did this a year ago and i tend to forget straight after exam xD

    candy's dog is a symbol of candy himself - old and disposable
    curly - a terrier dog, small and wants to prove he's tougher
    curly's wife flopped like a fish, ironic as lennie's a bear. bear eats fish
    that's all i know really, i didnt specifically learn animal imagery but it's accidental cos i studied the book thoroughly and made my own thoughts on things as i go along

    You could also use the quote which is atthe start of the novel. It describes lennie as having bear like features (hands)
