How does Steinbeck use foreshadowing in the first four chapters of Of Mice & Men
to prepare us for the tragedy of the final two chapters?
Imagine that you are Slim at the end of the story and you are giving your statement
to the police to help with their investigation into Lennie’s death.
Think back over what has happened in the novel and write your account of the events
since George and Lennie arrived on the ranch two days ago. Some of the things you
might like to describe are:
Your first reactions to George & Lennie.
Working with them.
Giving Lennie your puppy and his reaction.
Lennie & Curley’s fight.
The horseshoe game and discovering her body.
The search for Lennie and finding George with his body.
What happened when you left with George at the end of the novel.
Remember you need to decide whether or not you are going to tell the police the truth
about George or are you going to maintain the lie he creates by pretending to have
found Curly’s Wife’s body in the barn with the rest of the men and that he shot Lennie
