Weed and Soledad

MICMEN-KLVUB1

What is the significance of the names of the towns "Weed" and "Soledad"?

A

The town names collectively represent the cycle of life because everyone dies alone.

B

Both town names represent George and Lennie's characters. George is lonely and, in the 1930s, intellectually disabled people like Lennie were considered useless like a weed.

C

Both town names are representative of life for vagrant workers during the 1930s, fruitless and lonely.

D

The two town names are a contrast, Weed representing death and Soledad representing life.

E

The two town names foreshadow what life will be like the ranch: lonely and deadly.
