Pearls, Ponies, and Points

The Pearl: Between the Doctor, the Priest, and the Pearl Buyers, Steinbeck is trying to make a point here about the effect that power, money, and greed can have on a person. Any thoughts?

The Red Pony: There’s a sort of symbolic relationship here between Gabilan (the horse) and Gitano (the old man). See if you can draw any similarities between the two and their relationships to Jodi Tifflin.

Of Mice and Men: In the case of Carlson vs. Candy, if you were the judge instead of Slim, do you think you could have come to a better resolution, while still keeping the peace in the bunkhouse? Give it a “shot”… (pun intended)
