KDE – 11yEn – Of Mice and Men – Question C

As we began in class today, please ensure you come into tomorrow’s lesson having completed Question C:

Explain the importance of violence in one other part of the novel.

In your answer, you must consider:
an event where violence takes place
how violence affects those involved.

We studied Section 4, in which Crooks, Candy and Curley’s Wife experience conflict. You could also use:
Curley’s violent manner from the outset; the killing of Candy’s dog; the death of Curley’s wife; Curley’s intentions towards Lennie; the killing of Lennie. Anything else is valid, as long as it’s argued well.

Remember to show:
 how that part of the novel shows characters influenced by violence
 how that part of the novel shows violence affecting relationships
 how violence in that part of the novel drives the plot
 what the writer is saying about violence

As you began this in your books, complete the question in your book, and we can mark it tomorrow.
