Storyboard Text

  • George said "It wasn't much to you, maybe, but it was a hell of a lot to him. Jesus Christ, I don't know how were gonna get him to sleep in here. He'll want to sleep right out in the barn with 'em. We'll have trouble keepin' him from getting right in the box with them pups" (38). This shows isolation of Lennie. His disabilities cause him to be an outcast and outcasts experience extreme isolation because they do not function in the way normal people can.
  • In Mice Of Men the theme of Isolation is evident in many situations. One, is when we see Lennie having a strong connection with the pups. 
  • "Think Slim's with his wife, don't he?" said George. "Looks like it." Whit said. (53)
  • Another example of isolation is when we see Curly's wife assumed of cheating because she is the only woman on the work site and constantly surrounded by men. 
  • Isolation is also seen when Candy's dog is shot and killed. His dog was his lifelong companion, so when he was killed Candy was left an old, alone, incapable man.
  • 'Candy looked a long time at Slim to try to find some reversal. And Slim gave him none. At last Candy said softly and hopelessly, "awright---take 'im." ' (47)
