    Would it be possible to say that Lennie is sort of like a symbol of men. He values smaller things over more important things which is seen in the quote about throwing the puppy away but he disregarded the young girl. Men were like this too; materialistic and often elevated the status of things that were minuscule in value to companionship etc.

    The general rule in literature is that as long as you can back it up with evidence from the text, you can say pretty much what you like haha. If you can, go for it.
