  18. 18. Steinbeck use of foreshadowing creates a sense of expectation and tension
  19. 19. Steinbeck use of foreshadowing creates a sense of expectation and tension. There are clear links in the language Steinbeck uses for both the killing of Candy’s dog and Lennie. For example, the dog ‘wouldn’t even quiver.’ and when Lennie is killed he ‘settled slowly forward in the sand, and he lay without quivering’.
  20. 20. Steinbeck use of foreshadowing creates a sense of expectation and tension. There are clear links in the language Steinbeck uses for both the killing of Candy’s dog and Lennie. For example, the dog ‘wouldn’t even quiver.’ and when Lennie is killed he ‘settled slowly forward in the sand, and he lay without quivering’. The foreshadowing suggests it was necessary for Lennie to die; the reader understands that it was kinder for Lennie to die than to live.

  24. 24. Steinbeck use of foreshadowing creates a sense of expectation and heightens the tension. There are clear links in the language Steinbeck uses for both the killing of Candy’s dog and Lennie. For example, the dog ‘wouldn’t even quiver.’ and when Lennie is killed he ‘settled slowly forward in the sand, and he lay without quivering’. The foreshadowing suggests it was necessary for Lennie to die and the reader understands that the dog needs to die (putting animals down is a concept we are used to); the reader then understands that was kinder for Lennie to die than to live. The links in the language suggest the dog and Lennie die painlessly as they did not ‘quiver’. The use of ‘settled slowly’ reinforces the reader understanding of this being the best death for Lennie; the sibilance amplifies the softness of the death. Furthermore, the animalistic imagery used to describe Lennie throughout the text intensify the links between Lennie and Candy’s dog. The links between the killing of the dog and Lennie ensure that the reader knows George has to shoot Lennie as Candy felt he ‘ought to have shot that dog’ himself; when Lennie kills Curley’s wife, the reader is aware that this can only end tragically.
