Do Lennie and George see their life of traveling and working as a type of freedom? Do they ever consider the question of freedom?

Crooks is the only ranch hand to have his own room. Is this a type of freedom, or a type of confinement?At the end of the story, when George is facing life without Lennie, does he feel freer, or more confined?

"? Does he find it in death?Slide4

(George to Lennie) "I wish I could put you in a cage with about a million mice an' let you have fun." His anger left him

Freedom, or lack of it, is a central theme in of ‘Of Mice and Men’. Steinbeck presents a lack of freedom throughout the novel through several characters to highlight the strength of this problem.

George displays his lack of freedom when he says “we wouldn’t ask nobody if we could” go. The fact that he says this “wonderingly” highlights to the reader that George only dreams about freedom which implies that it is not a realistic or achievable goal. The ranch hands want to be able to make their own decisions and thus depend on

“nobody”,

rather than be constrained by a lack of financial security or status.
