Figurative Language in Of Mice and Men
Transcript of Figurative Language in Of Mice and Men
and Personifacation Metaphor Simile Personification Imagery Page 99 paragraph 1-3: The image created of the
once peaceful place is turned dark. The author uses
the heron and the snake to display the discontent of
the valley. Page 48: Candy's dog is shot because he is looked upon
as weak in a strong nature society. His death wasn't looked
upon as important except to Candy. This foreshadows
the death of Lennie. Page 5-6: George discovers Lennie hoarding a dead
mouse in his side pocket. Lennie's explanation for this
is he likes to pet it. This foreshadows the death of the puppy and Curley's wife. Page 88: "I coulda made somethin' of myself." She said darkly, "Maybe I will yet."
~It makes the reader think she is going to leave Curley, pursue her dreams, or do something to change her fate. Then we see that it foreshadowed the thing we never thought of happening to her. Page 93: "The curls, tiny little sausages, were spread on the hay behind her head..."
~This is an example of a metaphor because it is saying directly her curls are little sausages. Page 9: "...slowly, like a terrier who doesn't want to bring a ball to its master, Lennie approached, drew back, approached again."
~This is an example of a simile because it shows how innocent and childlike Lennie is by comparing him to a terrier. Page 16: "The sycamore leaves whispered in a little night breeze."
~The figurative language adds mystery to the setting and the characters. Page 1 paragraph 1: The image created is one
of peace and serenity. It helps set the first
encounter of George and Lennie. It shows the innocence of their characters.
