Storyboard Text

  • Chapter 1. Rabbits
  • Chapter 1. Power
  • Chapter 1. Lennie Small
  • The symbol of the rabbit represents Lennie and George's dream- the dream that almost seems impossible and out of their reach. The rabbits drive Lennie to try and be good, and behave and listen to George- giving George the power over Lennie 'You won't be able to tend them rabbits!'. The rabbits symbolize a potential future full of freedom , they represent hope to the two friends.
  • Chapter 2. The Playing cards
  • In Chapter 1, George displays his power over Lennie in both wit and planning. George is the leader of the two, making the plans and carrying them out while simultaneously looking over Lennie. George has power over Lennie in chapter 1 as a brotherly figure that looks over the other. George is much smarter than Lennie, being the obvious leader of the two.
  • Chapter 2. Power
  • Lennie is characterized in a very animalistic sense. He is big, trudges on the ground like a bear and drinks like a horse. He visibly acts like a child and only reacts and processes simple information like a child. Lennie is characterized in a way that we should be wary of him, as every animal has a snapping point and a harsh bite. As a reader, we look to when those aspects come out.
  • Chapter 2. Slim
  • In Chapter 2, the cards that George plays with represent a story. Every card he flips over, he says some sort of aspect about the life that he and Lennie had made for themselves. They also symbolize, by him playing alone, the sort of life of solitarity he has. Apart from Lennie, George has no friends, and doesn't until he starts to play cards with the others, representing others playing apart in their lives.
  • Right off the bat, the farm owners that George and Lennie go and work for display their social power over them. Curley, the son of the boss, displays his self proclaimed power over Lennie and George by attempting to intimidate them and threaten to beat them up. This doesn't go over well, and simply frustrates the majority of the farm men who think low of Curley for always being confrontational.
  • Slim is characterized in a trusting way. He is characterized as the "Prince of the Ranch", and walks with a sense of royalty and self worth about him. Slim is respected by all the farm hands and the owner for being trustworthy. The reader is told that Slim is a good person, and that we should be trusting of him. Slim offers out a gently understanding and lets others come forth instead of pressuring them to speak or not to.
