Summary of the beginning
At the beginning Of Mice and Men, Lennie and Goerge start out at a river named Salinas River. Where Lennie and Goerge sat at beside the water. George knew that he had a something in him pocket and George tells Lennie to give it to him and Lennie says "I ain't got nothin', George. Honest." After a little more arguing Lennie gives the dead mouse to George. Which then George throws it away from them.
period : 3
Conflict 1
There were muiltiple conflicts throughout the story but only two main conflicts. one of them would be man Vs. man which would be Lennie verse himself. Lennie struggled to keep himself out of trouble through out the story and eventually was the main reason for george and Candy to not get to thire utopia.
Conflict 2
Another conflict would be man Vs. man which would be George watching and teaching Lennie right from wrong. George meet lennie by his aunt Clara and she told george to watch Lennie and take care of him. George was a father figure to Lennie and he tought him right from wrong. George always said "i'd be so much better off without you." when he was mad at george.
George - He is short and thin,quick guy dark of the face with tired eyes ,He had strong hands ,skinny arms and has bony nose.He is very smart and he takes care of Lennie ,but he gets tired of taking care of Lennie . He gets annoyed sometimes because Lennie forgets things.He walks faster than Lennie ,but he is always taking care of Lennie, heis like a big brother to Lennie,but they are friends.George and Lennie have a utopia to get a farm and tend the rabbits. George and Lennie's job is a skinner too.
Lennie - He is a huge overweighted guy, he is also unattractive with big pale eyes low shoulders and he drags his feet when he walks .he is nice and gentel ,but mentally he is not always there, because Lennie is just a child ,He doesn't always know whats bad or good.Lnnie likes George,but he doesn't want to disappoint him and he likes soft things

Theme 1
Rising action
George and Lennie's dream
Lennies mouse dies
they arrive at the ranch
Slim talks about killing the puppies
Candy's dog is killed by Carlson
Candy's money can achieve George and Lennie's utopia
Crooks tries to make friends
Curley's wife causes conflict with Crook's,Candy, and Lennie
Lennie kills his pupp
Lennie pets Curley's wife's hai
The climax or turning point of the story is when Lennie snaps the neck of Curley's wife and kills her.This changes everything by no longer letting Lennie and George make it to there utopia.
The time of the story would be during the Great Depression in the 1930s. The place is south of Soledad
What happened in
During George and Lennie's time in Weed they were digging a cesspool according to George. The reason why George and Lennie left Weed was because Lennie wanted to touch some lady's dress and the lady freaked out and sayed that Lennie raped her. George and Lennie hid in a drane pipe for the rest of the day from the police.
Candy's Dog
Candy has an old sheep dog that really smells and he had ever sense it was a pup. Candy had just walked into the bunkhouse and everyone complains about Candy's smelly dog. Carlson tells Candy "If you was to take him out and shoot him right in the back of the head, right there, why he'd never know what hit him." and Candy responded with "No, I couldn' do that. I had 'im too long." After Carlson took Candy's old dog out and shoot it and Candy and George found out their utopia could become real Candy Said he should have killed his dog himself so it was at ease.
Curley and Lennie's fight
The fight began with because Curley was angry that Slim said that if Curley could just take care of his wife instead of them chasing each other. So Curley fights Lennie because Curley thought he was laughing at him even tho Lennie was laughing about rabbits and or their utopia. As Curley is slashing at Lennie, Lennie kept saying "Get 'um let me alone, George." and finally George said "Get 'im, Lennie!" and Lennie crushes Curley's hand.
Before Curley's wife came if the barn Lennie had killed a pup and was burying it in the hay so nobody would find it. After Curley's wife comes in the barn she was trying to get Lennie's attention by letting Lennie touch her soft hair. Curley's wife freaks out and Lennie gets angry and ends up breaking her neck. Lennie starts running to the bushes where George told him to hide if he gets in trouble. Later the other coworkers find her dead and Curley is now wanting to kill him. George stole Carlson's gun.
Lennie's Death
George finds Lennie talking to himself in the brush. George calms Lennie down by talking about their utopia. Then as Lennie says "Sure, right now. I gotta. We gotta. Then George raised the gun to the back of Lennie's head and fires.
First theme is dreams, hopes, and plans through out the story this theme is shown and it is one of the main parts of the story. This is what Lennie, George and Candy all look forward to throughout the whole story and this is what they work for at the farm. This dream is diminished when Lennie kills Curleys wife .
Theme 2
Another main theme would be friendship because of Lennie and georges friendship. There friendship throughout the story resembles a big and little brother relationship. This relationship is built stronger and explained through out the story.
Theme 3
I would say that another theme shown through out the story would be innocence because Lennie and his childish personality. But when Lennies inoccence turns into the reason that Curleys wife dies.
The bunkhouse was a rectangular building. On the inside the walls were whitewashed and the floor unpainted with eight bunks. When George and Lennie got to the bunk house an old man greeted them and told them which beds were theirs and George's bunk and a small yellow can. George said to the old man "Say. What the hell's this?" The old man read the label and it said "positively kills lice, roaches and other scourges." The old man told George that the blacksmith was the last one who had that bunk and he was a clean freak.
