Consider the title of the chapter, β€œIs That a Symbol?” He feels that if the reader thinks it is a symbol, it is. I first read "Of Mice and Men" back in grade 10. I recall thinking the creek that George and Lennie stop at before the ranch as peaceful. I saw it as a calm place before the storm. This place still holds the same symbolic reference to me. It is an oasis that has its meaning violently changed at the end of the book.
