In the movie and novel about Mice and Men there was a lot of loneliness. The ranch was loneliness because there was some people that didn’t have friends because the way they acted, personality, skin color, and gender. For example, Lennie, Crooks, Candy, and curley’s wife all feel lonely and all of them are from the ranch.First, I think Lennie feels lonely because he thinks that the other people at the ranch don’t like him. I think they don’t like him because he forgets things very easy, he’s not smart and weird. I think they only like him at the job because he stronger than the other guys at the ranch. At the same time I don’t think he’s lonely because he has george his best friend and they go together on the adventure and george is always by his side and lennie would do anything for george.Next, Crooks has a room to himself because he is the only black man on the ranch. Crooks loves to keep the room neat, but he has been beaten down by loneliness and prejudicial treatment and he is now suspicious of any kindness he receives. His disability stops from doing the things the other man can do and he feels sad because that’s what’s stopping him. He doesn’t like anyone going into his room because he feels like something bad is going to happen like when curley’s wife was in there she said that he can get him killed.After, Candy is isolated in that after the loss of his hand he is unable to work alongside the other men and is reduced to the role of swamper. Since his dog has been shot Candy has little else to live for and is super lonely. His loneliness forces him to acquiesce when Lennie tries to talk to him. He is powerless and afraid of the future. He thinks that the only way is if he get a chance to go with lennie and george.Curley’s Wife is the only women in the ranch and has no one who would talk to her including curley. She is bored and lonely, but she tries to get the attention of the man in the ranch which makes them get away from her. She had a dream of becoming a movie star she’s given up on it and she appears to hang her hopes on any men who will listen and lennie appears to. Her own husband doesn’t even care about her and she knows it and she doesn’t want to be with him anymore. She wants to have a better live and she can’t because she has nobody to talk to.Finally, In Mice and Men a lot of people in the ranch face loneliness and it during a sad time. For example, there was Lennie, Crooks, Candy and Curley’s wife all face loneliness in this story because of their personality, the way they acted, skin color, gender and disability. This took place during the great depression and this why they probably called it that because it wasn’t just about the money because a lot of people were depressed and they also faced loneliness.
