Question 1

Question 1

  • What is the relationship between dogs and people in Of Mice and Men? Look at and beyond the plot to deeper meanings.

    • Lennie

    • Candy

      • Remember textual support


Question 2

Question 2

  • Why does George have to give up the idea of the dream farm once Lennie kills Curley’s wife? Was the farm ever a real possibility?

    • Remember textual support


Question 3

Question 3

  • Does George have the right to kill Lennie? Legally? Ethically? How does Steinbeck’s treatment of Lennie’s murder color the way the reader interprets the event? What does George’s action suggest about justice – within the play and in the world as a whole?

    • Remember textual support


Question 4

Question 4

  • What is the relationship between social status and being able to attain one’s dreams in Of Mice and Men? How likely are people to achieve one’s dreams, according to the text, if he or she does not begin in a place of privilege?

  • How likely is someone to achieve his or her dreams if part of a marginalized group?

    • This question is for us and our time.
