Question:

In John Steinbeck's novel, "Of Mice and Men" symbolism played a huge role in the author's delivery and expression. How the reader perceived each symbol was important in whether they truly understood the novel. What are at least two symbols that stuck out to you, what was the meaning behind them and why did they stick out to you?

Kellie S.
Answer:

Two symbols that stick out for me are: 1) The "farm." This is their dream that both Lennie & George aspire to achieve despite the obstacles that seem impossible to overcome. Both men maintain their focus on this farm as a means to connect with one another, connect with the reader and ultimately become symbolic in representing the "American Dream"-a wish or desire for all mankind. 2) Hands. Hands in the novel play a huge role in being symbolic, however, the reader truly needs to grasp the inner details of the story to see the symbolism. Candy is missing a hand, this represents his helplessness, how he's always a day late and a dollar short-so to speak. Lennie's hands represent strength-often unbridled. Lennie's strong hands we see throughout the novel can bring both good (strong worker) or bad (using them on the puppy).
