Have you ever felt trapped? Over the first semester we read Of Mice and Men, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, and 1984. Each story presented to me people who are unable to progress or who were or felt trapped, some of them as a result of their own decisions, and others due to outside forces. Also those characters who eventually break free from their entrapments in these stories do so by cultivating some kind of awareness. Many of the characters don't even realize that they are trapped, but most have a difficult way of escaping. In this essay I am going to be writing about the characters and there traps and a way they escape or they could've escaped, Another thing I am going to be talking about is how the society in North Korea is like the society in the book 1984. Next, Im going to be talking about how animals are trapped too. Lastly, I will talk about is my relatable experience of feeling trapped with the book Of Mice and Men.
First of all, in the book Of Mice and Men we experience some characters who were trapped throughout this book and none of them find a way of escaping. For example, The character, Lennie, is trapped by not learning from his mistakes, follows George everywhere, and by his brain control, meaning he's just not all there. Lennie dreams about having rabbits, but of course that didn't work out. The Character George is trapped by Lennie, who follows him around everywhere and Lennie always messes up. George later is trapped by not having a companion, which his dream was to live of the fat of the land. The character Crooks is trapped by being crippled, being a different color, he is shunned because he has his own room, and no companionship. He could possibly escape because he could've gone to the dream home. Also, the character Candy is trapped by his ability to work because he is old, no companion, thinks he's worthless.. His dream was to die with his dog,...
