¨Why´n´t you shoot him, Candy?¨
¨well-hell! I had him so long .¨
Chapter 5 pg. 91
George is telling Lennie about how they are going to have land together and live the American Dream. This is where the lie about the dream started. George knew from the beginning that this was never going to be reality. I believe this is an example of foreshadowing because you know its a lie from the start waiting to be told.
Chapter 6 pg. 106
¨Sure, right now. I gotta. We gotta.¨
¨le´s do it now. Le´s get that place now.¨
Carlson ends up shooting Candy´s old and brittle dog because he´s probably suffering. Shooting the dog is only one example from the book that helps develop the message ¨when something is suffering you need to mute it down¨. Symbolism, because it symbolizes what George has to do to Lennie.
Lennie kills Curlyś wife because he got to aggressive about feeling her soft hair. Lennie can´t touch any thing without killing it, he does bad things. Flash back because it goes back to him killing the mouse and puppy, now this. It just keeps escalating. This makes you think about the message the author is trying to send.
George shoots Lennie in the back of the head. Once you read this everything pieces itself together. George shoots Lennie to save him from a more painful death that Curley has promised him. George knows that Curley will not understand his actions were unintentional. Flashback because it makes you think about all of the past events relating to this.
