Storyboard Text

  • Lennie's Character
  • The Rabbits
  • Acceptance
  • Lennie is described to us as readers an a large bulky man.he is older than George and acts much like a young child. We are told that he is not very smart and consistently forgets what happens in his life. Lennie is portrayed as mentally slow and being someone who would not be able to fend for himself. He depends on George for almost everything in his life and is always looking to his companion for help and support. we are not sure how George and Lennie met at this point in the story but what we do know is that they depend on each other and travel together.
  • Slim's Character
  • Through this novel we learn that Lennie has a strong fascination with petting "soft" things. This is made clear through many flashbacks and memories of their past. Lennie constantly dreams of tending rabbits on their dream farm and is kept grounded and secure in his difficult life. It is clear that through out the story all of the characters have something to keep them going. Wheather it be a dream, memory or idea, it is something that helps cushion the pain that all of the characters face in the harsh realities of life.
  • Puppies
  • I chose acceptance because I felt that this book lacked it. I found that the only people who can really accept each other are George and Lennie, Crooks, Slim and Candy. However it is made very clear that Curlys wife is not accepted at all and is treated like she doesn't even exist. Curly does not accept Lennie and has an anger towards him that cannot be avoided. There are many more examples through out the book that show the minimal amount of acceptance and care that these people show for each other.
  • Acceptance
  • Slim is shown to us, the readers as a tall man. he las long black hair and wears the same blue jeans and denim jacket as everyone else. However he is almost majestic and whenever he opens his mouth and he speaks like a god and is listened to as if there is no other sounds on the earth. he is wise and very sensible. he is understood and embodies power. he is the jerkline skinner and he is extremely good at what he does.
  • The puppies in this chapter symbolize vulnerability and warmth In this sometimes volatile world. They help many of the men to still see the good and aid in keeping them calm and grounded. They live In the barn with their mother and they are still to young to leave her. Lennie loves how soft they are and has already picked out the one that he wants.
  • Lennie and George have now arrived at the farm and they are introduced to everyone. They are accepted into the working family and treated as equals. However, not everyone on the farm has this security and sense of belonging. Crooks is that stable buck and has been an outcast for most of his life. As a child we are told that he had a wealthy upbringing. That he had a family of his own and that he was loved for who he was and not for the color of his skin.
