  • 2. Task • We need to consider locations and places in the text. • Today we will look at space and room. • We will focus on chapter 2 and consider how space is used and how this reflects on characters.
  • 3. Find a quote using… • Death imagery • Lists and long sentences • Any language that suggests the room is small/cramped • What possessions the men have. • Any language that suggests if this is a masculine or feminine room? • What effect does this have on a reader?
  • 4. Questions 1. Find a quote that shows the bunkhouse is like a coffin. What does this forebode in the novel? 2. Does the Bunkhouse fit with the description of what the American Dream is made out to be?
  • 5. Themes • Dreams • Loneliness • The working man • Prejudice and protest • Fate and destiny
  • 6. Antithesis • What does this term mean? • When two opposite words or two opposite situations are put together. • Antithesis happens a lot in Of Mice and Men; and happens in Chapter 2.
  • 7. Review • Is the Bunkhouse a description of what the American Dream is made out to be? • What does this suggest about the American Dream?
