That’s fine, Lennie! Maybe you’re getting better. When we get the coupla acres I can let you tend the rabbits all right. ‘Specially if you remember as good as that ”(Steinbeck 15). Analysis: Lennie struggles with his mental disability, which often gets George and him in trouble and leaves them running from their problems.

Introduction paragraph example
Introduction Paragraph Example

Alienation Sample Introduction

(1) A ranch-hand, short and ill-tempered, walks in front of another man, looming large with a lonely expression on his face. The larger man mumbles sadly under his breath, “Come on George give me back my mouse. I didn’t kill it; it was dead when I found it.” The other man responds, “Jesus, Lennie, you never learn. I could get on so much easier without you.” Lennie falls behind George further, feeling alienated and alone. (2) Alienation is a major theme subject in this novel, Of Mice and Men, and many other characters besides George and Lennie, experience alienation in many different forms. (3) Of Mice and Men is a heart-wrenching book about two alienated ranch hands that travel up and down California looking for a job. (4) When they arrive to a ranch in Soledad they encounter many other characters, such as Candy, Crooks, and Curley’s Wife, that feel alienated from their surroundings as well. (5) In the novel, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, the author’s underlying message or theme is people are alienated because of how they were treated due to their differences, which makes them lose confidence, withdraw from and alienate others, and lose hope for the future.

Friendship Sample Introduction

(1) Lying on his bunk, his face painted with a slight grin, the old ranch swamper quietly whispers to himself, “We gonna do it now….Me an’ Lennie an’ George. We gonna have a room to ourself. We’re gonna have a dog an’ rabbits an’ chickens”(Steinbeck 76). Candy can hardly sit still as he looks to the future, dreaming about what life will soon be like on the farm with his new friends. (2) Friendship is a major theme subject in the novel, Of Mice and Men, and many of the characters besides Candy desire the comfort that comes with friendship. (3) Of Mice and Men is a heart-wrenching story set in a time period filled with uncertainty where people struggled to find security and stability amid the chaos of life. Two friends, George and Lennie, travel through California to find work and somehow fulfill their dream of owning a farm. (4) When they arrive to the ranch in Soledad, they meet other characters such as Candy, Crooks, and Curley’s Wife, and all realize the power that friendship has. (5) In the novel, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, the author’s underlying message or theme is friendship provides people with a sense of security and belonging, as well as support through the tough times and hope for the future; however a lack of friendship can cause a person to feel isolated, sick, alienate themselves and act meanly toward others.

Conclusion paragraph example
Conclusion Paragraph Example

Alienation Sample Conclusion

(1) All is quiet on the ranch in Soledad. George looks out across the small body of water, and says to his friend, “I’m sorry Lennie, I want you to know I ain’t never been mad at you” (Steinbeck 106). No matter how hard George tried, his frienship with Lennie and their dream of owing a ranch together could not save Lennie from being alienated from society. (2) Other people did not have the patience that George had with Lennie, and could not accept him for his differences. Candy, Crooks, and Curley’s Wife also could not escape the feelings of loneliness and alienation. These characters were often alienated because of their differences and when a person is continuously alienated they often lose their self-worth and experience pain and suffering.(3) The only way that people can prevent this is to accept others for who they are, build strong friendships and support each other through tough times. With the help and support of others, only then is it possible for people to achieve their dreams.


Conclusion paragraph example1
Conclusion Paragraph Example

Friendship Sample Conclusion

(1) All is quiet on the ranch in Soledad. George looks solemnly at Candy and says, “Lennie never done it in meaness…all the time he done bad things, but he never done one of ‘em mean” (Steinbeck 95). No matter how hard George tried his friendship with Candy and Lennie and their dream of owing a ranch together could not save Lennie from being alienated from society. (2) Candy was only beginning to experience the friendship that George had with Lennie, and the benefits that came with it. Unfortunately Candy, Crooks, and Curley’s Wife also could not escape the feelings of loneliness and alienation that comes with a lack of friendship. Friendship provides people with the comfort and support that they need to get through the tough times in life and when a person does not have that friendship in their life they find it more difficult to get through the pain and suffering that comes with life. (3) The only way that people can prevent this is to accept others, for who they are, build strong friendships and support each other through tough times. With the help and support of others, only then is it possible for people to achieve their dreams.


Conclusion paragraph example2
Conclusion Paragraph Example

Hopes/Dreams Sample Conclusion

(1) All is quiet on the ranch in Soledad. George looks solemnly at Candy and says, “I think I knowed from the very first. I think I knowed we never do her. He usta like to hear about it so much I got to thinking maybe we would” (Steinbeck 94). No matter how many times George told Lennie about their dream and even with the help from Candy, their dream of owing a ranch together seemed to always be just out of reach. (2) Unfortunately for many other people on the ranch such as Candy, Crooks, and Curley’s Wife their dream was also out of reach and could not escape the feelings of loneliness and alienation that comes with a lack of hope for a better life. Maintaining hope and having dreams provides people with the motivation and encouragement that they need to get through the tough times in life, as well as a sense of belonging and self worth, and when they lack this it often causes them to lose touch with reality and pits people against each other and makes them hesitant to build friendships which are necessary in achieving one’s dream. (3) The only way that people can prevent this is to accept others, for who they are, build strong friendships and support each other through tough times. With the help and support of others, only then is it possible for people to achieve their dreams.
