Rational of Mice and Men

We are the ghost interviewer here to interview the ghost of Lennie. Lennie was represented as the person the follows other people. The one that doesn’t have a specific American dream, but also follows another person’s American dream. Our media is an audio recording

“George told me not to speak to you, he says I woul’ mess ever’thing up”

This shows that Lennie is a follower, which relates to the thesis statement. We chose that these because the behavior in the book shows that he only follows George. For example:

“He won’t do it, George woulden’t do nothing like that. I been with George a long time. He’ll come back…Don’t you think he will?”

We asked Lennie if George won’t be with him, what would he do. It shows that without George he’s left with a confusion and fear. That relates to the thesis statement

The american dream the Lennie followed was this:

“George has a goal, and I’m helping him with it. We gonna buy a farm, “an’ have rabbits.”(13) “we’ll have a big vegetable patch, and a rabbit

hutch and chickens. And when it rains in the winter, we’ll just say the hell with going to work, and we’ll build up a fire in the stove and set arourd it and listen to the rain coming down on the roof.” (14) George says that I can have all the rabbits I wan’, different colored ones too.”

This is related to the great depression, because the majority of the people during the great depression wanted to have land and shelter. That’s exactly what George wants, and Lennie is just there to help him
