In OMAM how does Steinbeck use the quote "And in and out of the beam flies shot like rushing stars" as a way of showing contrast towards the ranch men?

  • "And in and out of the beam shot flies like shooting stars" how does Steinbeck use this simile to show contrast between the fly and the ranch men (freedom?)
  • And why would Steinbeck want to create this contrast (interior vs exterior settings)
  • And what does this suggest the bunkhouse is doing to the men? (making them the same? trapping them?)
