Hyperbole: "The brush seemed filled with cries and with the sound of running feet."p.106-107 #5. Imagery: What consistent motifs does the author use? What symbols does the author use to get his message across to the readers? Physical strength: Lennie is physically big and strong, but mentally powerless. This creates many risks for him and eventually kills him.
Dream farm: The farm that George and Lennie always talk about is a symbol of life goals and beliefs. After including a few other characters in the dream, George promises Lennie that he can tend the rabbits. The farm represents paradise and a place of protection from reality.
Hallucinations: When Lennie runs away to the pond, his Aunt Clara and a snake start talking to him in his own voice. These are hallucinations that are warning him. They remind him of how much wrong he has done and how angry George will be for finding out about what Lennie had done. They represent his conscience, showing what is going on in Lennie’s head.
The pond: the pond that George and Lennie meet at is a place of sanctuary. When Lennie goes there after the accident, they peacefully talk about their farm before Lennie’s life is over. #6. What themes are addressed in your chapter? Themes used in chapter 6:
Making decisions- This was one of the themes because at the end of chapter six, George had to make a descision to stop Lennie. It was a very hard one to make for him.
Companionship- George ended Lennie’s life because he loved him and didn’t want him to die in pain. He talked to Lennie about their dream right before killing him so he could be happy. Of Mice and Men Chapter 6
