slow mentality and uncontrollable nature led to a tragic misunderstanding and the woman's death.
Another fine example of foreshadowing is when Curly is very aggressive with George and Lennie

Another fine example of foreshadowing is when Candy has his dog in the shack and the other
workers are talking that he needs to put down his dog and they kept trying to convince him to do...
