  • Chapter 1: Symbolism
  • In chapter one, rabbits play a major symbol. "Tell me about the rabbits, George" To Lennie they symbolize a better, free life for him and George. A place where he can tame the rabbits without worry of petting them too hard or getting into trouble. The two of them can live carefree on a ranch where no one can tell them what to do or how to act. No rules, no work for anyone else but themselves, and their own place to live.
  • Chapter 1: Theme
  • A major theme in this book is friendship. In chapter one, friendship is portrayed between George and Lennie in multiple ways. George takes care of Lennie and make sure he stays out of trouble. Even though he constantly says things like "God a'mighty, if I was alone I could live so easy." George automatically realizes that he wouldn't want to be alone, and that Lennie is his companion.
  • Chapter 1: Characterization
  • Lennie Small is an important character throughout the book and is first introduced in chapter one. His last name "Small" however, is quite the opposite of his size. He is compared to a bear in his form, and the way he shuffles his legs and swings his arms while he walks. Lennie is very forgetful, friendly, strong, and hopelessly devoted to George.
  • Chapter 2: Symbolism
  • The major symbol is the playing cards, these are mentioned many times throughout this chapter and are urged to be noticed by the reader. This represents how Slim is trying to force himself into Georges life and almost trying to control it. In the chapter, he tries moving the cards around like re arranging Georges life.
