Of mice and guys candy prices estimate
Estimate – Candy Quote 1 The old man [Sweet] squirmed uncomfortably. “Well-hell! I had him so long. Had him given that he was a pup. I rounded up sheep with him.” He stated happily, “You would not believe it to take a look at him now, however he was the best damn sheep canine I ever seen.” (3. 56) This is almost the precise very same thing that George states about Lennie: he’s “had him so long.” However can you actually be good friends with a dog? Or somebody who’s way psychologically inferior to you? Chapter 3 Friendship
Quote 2 “A man on a cattle ranch don’t never ever listen nor he don’t ast no concerns.” (2. 7) Candy gives us a pretty good meaning of a separated person: someone who does not ask concerns and someone who doesn’t listen– simply put, not much of a conversationalist. We’re getting the sensation that, for Steinbeck, isolation is mainly about silences … which makes friendship mostly about conversation. Chapter 2 Seclusion – Sweet -> > – George Milton
Quote 3 George half-closed his eyes. “I got ta think about that. We was always gon na do it by ourselves.” Sweet interrupted him, “I ‘d make a will an’ leave my share to you people in case I begin, ’cause I ain’t got no loved ones or absolutely nothing …” (3. 18-219) Candy is so separated that he does not even have family members to leave his cash to. Well, he could constantly leave it to a deserving charity. Chapter 3 Isolation And when they were gone, Candy squatted down in the hay and enjoyed the face of Curley’s better half. “Poor bastard,” he whispered. (5. 112) Not “poor girl,” however “poor bastard.” We get the sensation that Candy knows who the real victim is here: not Curley’s spouse, who he believes brought it on herself, but poor, dumb, innocent Lennie. Chapter 5 Innocence – Candy ->
> Quote 4 “Well, Curley’s lovely helpful,” the swamper stated skeptically. “Never did seem right to me. S’pose Curley jumps a big man an’ licks him. Ever’body states what a game person Curley is. And s’present he does the very same thing and gets licked. Then ever’body says the big man oughtta badger someone his own size, and possibly they gang up on the huge guy. Never ever did appear right to me. Look like Curley ain’t givin’ nobody an opportunity.” (2. 93) Candy may not be too clever, but he’s smart enough to get it: Curley’s video gaming the system. It might not be very fair or just for somebody like Lennie to pound on a little guy like Curley– however it’s also unfair of Curley to provoke Lennie, understanding that Lennie’s going to get in problem for not badgering somebody his own size. Chapter 2 Justice – Sweet -> > – George Milton
Estimate 5 “I ought to of shot that pet myself, George. I should not ought to of let no complete stranger shoot my pet dog.” (3. 234) In the (paraphrased) words of George R. R. Martin, you ‘d better not condemn somebody to death unless you’re willing to perform the execution. It’s not really manly, and it’s not really just. Chapter 3 Justice – – Curley
Estimate 6 Sweet said, “That bitch didn’t should of stated that to you.” “It wasn’t nothing,” Crooks said dully. “You men comin’ in an’ settin’ made me forget. What she says holds true.” (4. 136-137) Turns out, there’s a little stimulate left in Crooks, too. He has a vision of America where he can retain a little self-respect working for Candy, Lennie, and George– however Curley’s spouse is happy to step all over his little American Dream, despite the fact that hers is simply as unattainable.
