Of Mice and Men
By emthan, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
One major theme in the first chapter is the dead mouse that Lennie is attached to. The dead mouse symbolizes Lennie's desire for responsibility. George has Lennie to take care of, and Lennie feels as though he should have a responsibility too. He is protective over the mouse because he doesn't want to fail at yet another simple task.
Power is shown throughout the first chapter in small physical gestures. Such as the fact that George is always leading Lennie. Because George is the smarter one of the two, he is therefore the one in charge, and always the one in front.
By the end of chapter 1, Lennie's character has already been well developed. The reader knows that Lennie is forgetful, dependent on George, and has difficulty controlling his actions. Lennie worries about how much of a burden he is on George and tries hard to make him proud.
