Storyboard Text

  • Summary
  • Theme
  • I know buddy, just keep thinking about the farm...
  • I really want a farm where we can take care of rabbits.
  • Mood
  • After Lennie's aunt dies, George is left to take care of him. They had a job in one town however, Lennie isn't too bright and starts stroking a woman's dress in their town, because it was soft. They were chased out of town because the woman screamed rape and they kept walking until they could find a job far away from that town. They find a new job there and plan to make enough money, so they can have a farm. Lennie makes a lot of mistakes so he has to try his best to not mess up, but he crushes one of his coworker's hand who's named Curley. While he's in the hospital his wife talks to Lennie to find out if he's really that bad. She finds out he likes soft things so she lets him feel her hair, but he instinctively grabs on to her hair. She naturally screams in terror, but Lennie is freaked out by this and snaps her neck. Everyone at the workplace wants him dead and George leads it up to himself to put down Lennie peacefully before the workers can brutally kill him.
  • Tone
  • I am the author and I"m reading in a logical and realistic tone.
  • I believe that the theme is that your plans don't always work. George and Lennie spend the whole story trying to gather up enough money so they can afford a farm, but along the way, they get warnings about how everybody who saves their money for something always winds up failing in the end. In the end, their plan does not work out.
  • Character Analysis
  • The mood is dark, depressing, and lonely. Anytime something happy happens it immediately becomes depressing and the two main characters give off a lonely feeling from running out of town. They find out Candy has a dog, but he has to put it down. Lennie gets a puppy but accidentally kills it. Lennie becomes friends with Curley's wife. Finally, after all the time they spent together, George had to kill Lennie.
  • Important Event
  • The story has a logical realistic tone. Every line is said in a way that makes sense and affects the rest of the story. For example, when Curley's hand was broken, his wife naturally decided to investigate.
  • Lennie is definitely my favorite character because he's the most interesting. I feel like the author put the most amount of detail into Lennie, the other characters are fun, but can be kind of boring. He is a static character because he does not change at all throughout the story. Lennie is a short, strong man and has a mental disability. Because of his mental disability, he doesn't think logically and freaks out easily causing a lot of mistakes. He's innocent, but because of this, other people don't think that's he's innocent. That's exactly why I like him, he's in his own little world and he doesn't mean to harm anyone.
  • I believe the most important part of the story is when Lennie crushes Curley's hand. The rest of the character's see Lennie's true character and it changes everyone's opinion of him. It also sets up the climax where Curley's wife investigates and is killed by Lennie.
