Topic: Question 2

Lennie uses to his advantage the fact that George feels guilty for getting angry; he gets George to tell him the story of the "dream ranch".

a. What clues are we given that George has repeated this story to Lennie many times? Why do you think he does this?
b. What are the key features of their dream? What do they tell you about the character and values of the two men?
c. Lennie and George believe that they are better off than most other ranch workers and that they will be able to achieve their dream. What makes them think this way? What evidence, if any, are these conclusions based on?
