Discuss the role of foreshadowing in Of Mice and men.

There's many instances of foreshadowing in the novella, most of the scenes point towards the tragic ending. Steinbeck frequently hints towards the climax of the novella through his use of dialogue. George instructs Lennie to 'hide out in the bush' should there be any trouble, telling the reading that this is a likely possibility. Furthermore Carlson's use of emotive language when referring to the shooting of his dog foreshadows the emotive language George uses before shooting Lennie. Moreover Carlson wishes he had shot his dog himself rather than having had Curly do it for him, foreshadowing George's decision to shoot Lennie himself rather than allow Cruly's mob to do it.
