Theme of Mice and Men and evidence #1
The theme of Mice and Men is that loneliness effects people more people than we think, and for different reasons. In the book, loneliness hits hard at a lot of characters in the book including Crooks, Candy, and sometimes George and Lennie. What Steinbeck conveys about life is that even when your lonely, or don't like the situation your in, you sometimes just have to push through it and not say anything.
Evidence #2 and elaboration
In the book Crook states, "They play cards in there, but I can't play because i'm black. They say I stink," and this is just of an example of how someone can be lonely and it isn't their fault. Crooks is a nice guy, and wants to make friends, but he is forced to stay to himself and talk to no one because of his skin color.
Evidence #3 and elaboration
Candy, on the other hand kind of copes with her loneliness by flirting with people who are not her husband. She always says how she has no one to talk to because she didn't want to marry Curly, she kind of just married him because he was right in front of her and it was the easiest way to get out of the house where the people "stole her letters." In the book she explains, "I wasn't gonna stay no place where I couldn't get nowhere or make something of myself. So I married Curley. Met him out to Riverside Dance Palace that same night," and that quote is just evidence for what was explained in the beginning of this paragraph.
