The dream can not come true because Lennie accidently killed Curley's Wife. Because of that Curley wanted to make sure that Lennie died a slow and painfull death. Luckily George found Lennnie first and killed him in a way that Lennie was not scared, nor could he feal any pain.
George told Lennie in chpt 1 that someday they were gonna get the jack togother and have a little house and a couple of acres and a cow and some pigs and live of the fat of the land
"We could live offa the fatta the lan'." This was George and Lennie's dream and also the dream of thousands of people at that time. In life everybody has to have a dream whether they are rich or poor. In 'Of mice and men', Steinbeck shows that the dream of all the ranchmen amount to the same thing, …a piece of land. (MORE)
I think they wanted their own farm so they could work for themselves instead of being dependent on employment by others.
From the beginning of the story Lennie and George ride high on the thought of someday owning a farm. For Lennie, it is the expectation of simply being able to pet animals all day long.
George and Lennie are the Two anti-heroes of Steinbeck's novel "OF Mice and Men. They both had desired by the Great Depression in 1930 and live together as one. It is important to find out how much their relationship is bonded. Their desire made them to work together. Therefore George gave Lennie a …mercy killing of death without quivering. (MORE)
Curley's wife and Crooks, two cynics, scoff at the dream of Lennie and George as being unrealistic, but Candy sees its possibility and its beauty. He offers to give his life savings to help make the dream a reality, for he wants to join George and Lennie on the farm, living out his last days in happ…iness. when the two men accept Candy, he suddenly has a new lease on life; the dream has given him hope for a better future.

George told Lennie to jump into a river. Since Lennie always obeys George, he jumped in. However, he could not swim so he nearly drowned. After this incident, George never pranked Lennie again.
No they are not. George knew Lennie's Aunt Clara and when she died he promised her that he would watch after Lennie.
George is a quick witted man of small or average stature, Lennie is a mentally disabled man of great physicality.
To not say anything to the boss and if they get in trouble to go back to the camping spot
Lennie never tires of hearing George talk about their shared dream of one day owning their own piece of land. In particular, Lennie always wants to hear about how they will have rabbits. Other details of their American dream include a nice house, living off the land, and owning animals.
George prepares Lennie by making him think of the land 'with the rabbits' that they are going to buy and makes him picture it so he will be distracted when George shoots him.
It gives them hope, so they can keep moving forward. It gives them something to look up to and something to believe in.
george made Lennie feel strong he needed george to live and Lennie took evey word george said and though he forgot he would always turn to george and ask for him to help as there is a bit in the book that says george told Lennie to jump of a bridge into water and Lennie did even thought he could not… swim and then thanked george for saving him.

It gives them something to look forward to. It motivates them to work, and it inspires them.
Why did the stable buck in 'Of Mice and Men' reject the dream of George and Lennies of owning their own land and 'Livin of the fatta that land'?
I believ that stable buck rejected the offer since he knew his state of being far better than anybody else. he was afraid of being humiliated by saying his opinion aloud to the whites, because of the color of skin.
It is George and Lennie's dream to one day have their own piece of land and a farm of their own, where they run it and can do as they please with it. And where they have rabbits that Lennie will get to tend to.
Somewhat yes, because if he did not do it then; when Lennie was peaceful and in his own happy thoughts, then the other farm hands would have done it themselves while he was scared and probably felt alone because George disowned him in some ways. But then again no, because he could have taken Lennie …to a mental home or run off with him and found a farm like he promised they would someday with Crooks and Carlson so they would not be so alone.

George and Lennie are two friends who travel together looking for work during the great depression. Lennie is mentally disabled and George looks after him in a way.
They left the farm at the end of the novel because Lennie killed Curly's wife and would have been lynched. Lennie remembered to "run and hide in the brush" which is where George found him and saved him from being lynched by shooting him. If George hadn't left then he may have ended up being lynched …as others thought he helped Lennie to kill Curly's wife (MORE)
Because in those days, people who did not know each other did not look out for one another; saying they are related makes it sound like they are obligated to look out for one another.
At first, he finds it ridiculous; however, he is charmed by its simplicity and wishes to make it a part of his future too, but when he Lennie leaves Crooks' room, he is resentful and condemns the dream as an impossibility.
Lennie is a child-like man who looks up to George and copies his every move.
Lennie tells Crooks about the plan he and George have (and now Candy as well) to get a little farm together. Lennie will be able to tend the rabbits, and as he and Crooks sit in Crooks' room out in the barn, Candy is in the bunkhouse "figurin' and figurin'" about the rabbits and how they might be ab…le to make some money on them. The dream they had of "livin' offa the fatta the lan'" (living off of the fat of the land) was supposed to kept a secret, but Lennie doesn't realize that he shouldn't tell Crooks about it. At first, Crooks scoffs at the idea. He says, "No one never gets to Heaven, and no one never gets no land," but when Candy admits that it's true, Crooks wants in. However, Curley's wife winds up coming out to the barn, and she puts Crooks back in his place, so he ends the chapter telling Candy that he was just kidding about wanting to go to the dream farm with them. As readers, we know that he wasn't kidding, but we also know that Crooks is right to realize that he wouldn't be able to join with the others since he is a Black man in the 1930's south (California) and the prejudice of the whites will keep him from joining them.

Candy wants to help pitch in for the farm that George and Lennie are going to have because she wants to have her own little garden.
No, not at all. Their dream is to have a farm together and to live off 'the fatta land', to tend rabbits, to have cows, pigs and to have their own land. This dream is also Candy's as well, who sort of hitch hikes onto the back of it half way through the novel after overhearing them. The dream was a… possibility when Candy joined, however after the death of Curley's wife (Lennie snapped her neck) it became impossible due to Curley wanting to kill Lennie as revenge. From an reading the novel early on the reader can see that the dream was never going to be fulfilled due to the juxtaposition of hope and despair (every time something good happens something bad happens - i.e candy joins the dream, then Lennie kills Curley's wife destroying the dream). So the reader knows that the likelihood of the dream being fulfilled is none. Also, there is some ambiguity whether George actually believes the dream is a possibility in the first place and he just keeps on talking about it, to make Lennie happy due to this juxtaposition of hope and despair.

George and Lennie dreamed of buying and owning a small amount of land, just like any man does. ( the American dream) They were going to work at the ranch just until they got enough money to buy the little shack, were they would grow rabbits, puppies, chickens, alfalfa for the rabbits, etc.... But th…e dream does not turn into reality, because of the sin that Lennie had committed. (killed Curly's wife) And just like what crooks says about life...in chapter 3. "Everyone wants just a little bit of land...." (MORE)
One warning that George give Lennie is to stay away from Curley because he fears that if Curley tries to fight with Lennie, Lennie will hurt Curley, and they will lose their jobs. He also says to stay away from Curley's wife.
Lennie wants to tend rabbits. Even at the end of the book when things are spiraling out of control, he is only concerned about getting to tend to the rabbits on the ranch.
Lennie clearly loves George. We know this because he obeys every order from George. George is a father/brother figure to Lennie. Lennie respects him very much but due to his retardness he always ends up in trouble and poor George ALWAYS has to deal with it or suffer.
George and Lennie are two very different men who are searching for a job and when they finally find one it is at a ranch with other workers. They don't really have specific individual jobs, they do what they are told as the day goes on. Also for the characters Lennie and George are total opposites, …Lennie is mentally ill and he never knows what is going on around him. While on the other hand George is a very Intelligent person and doesn't need anyone to depend on but himself. He promised aunt Clara that he would take care of a Lennie. (MORE)
so that they can build up enough money to buy the land of there dream. this was the American dream.
George and Lennie are the 2 main characters in the book/ movie Of Mice and Men
They are friends. George has looked after Lennie since Lennie's aunt died. they arent only friends their like brothers, they have been together since his aunt died.
No. That was not their job at the ranch in the book Of Mice andMen.
Their dream was to have land of their own. A small farm with cows, chickens and rabbits. That's why Lennie always talks about George's promise that he can tend to the rabbits.
George is simply after the American Dream. Freedom and being able to become your own boss and have your own land is what he desires. Lennie is set on tending the rabbits, and defending them from the cats that dare threaten them. Lennie is dependent on George, so what George wants, Lennie wants too,… to keep George happy. Candy doesn't want to become useless on the ranch, because he knows that once he can't work, he won't be able to gain work because he is handicapped and no one will want to hire him. On the ranch, he can do odd jobs, like washing dishes etc, where he'll still be useful. Crooks, strangely it would seem, wants to work for George for free. He'd still be doing slave labour like he does on the ranch and without money. But on George's land, Crooks would get something he could never get on the ranch; respect. (MORE)
George knew Lennie's Aunt Clara when she passed away Lennie just went with George to work.
George killed Lennie by shooting him with Carlson's Luger (gun). He killed him out of mercy, love, and friendship because Curley and the other men were coming after Lennie (becaus he accidentally killed Curley's wife) and Curley wanted to make die a slow and ainful death bu shooting him in the guts.… Lennie shot him right in the back of the head to make it quik and painless. (MORE)
When Candy hears them he wants to help them, and give them money, so they have there ranch house sooner
There is hope for George when referring to the dream since he might live it with Slim. Slim is to George as George was to Lennie. They both like doing similar things and have alike personalities. There is a glimmer of a happy ending for them both, now that they can go into the real world without the… burden of Lennie. As for Lennie as very sad as it is, his dream is over. (unless his dream happens in "heaven".) (Very said that George killed his best friend and lied to him, about the dream and everything. And tricking him just to ill him. -cry- :( ) (MORE)
He gives them his life savings in return he asks to live with them when they buy the piece of land
He asks if he could be part of the dream. But then after Curley's wife threatens to have him hanged, he loses hope and tells Candy to forget about his offer to help out in their dream ranch because he feels stupid.
This dream is so important to both men because it is the extreme important part of the book because it is what makes Lennie and George's friendship unique. Also this dream is so important to both men because it will represent their independent and freedom so they don't enjoy having to be migrant wor…kers, and they would be secured and safe. This is all because Lennie wouldn't be opening to attack the people from the facing him, and he wouldn't be put these situations whereas he might probably get hurt by someone. (MORE)
Because of Lennie's simple mind, when Lennie's aunt passed away George promised to look after him and so when ever Lennie gets in trouble George has to help him get out of it. And also when they first come to work at the ranch the boss asks George who Lennie is to him he says hes his cousin. George …mainly started looking after Lennie was when they were young George asked Lennie to jump into the river as a joke and he did. George didn't know he would and Lennie couldn't swim either so he had to go save him. from then on he never joked around like that with Lennie again. So not only they are companions but they pretty much family now. (MORE)
