Conflict and Resolution in Herbert's Discipline George Herbert’s struggle to be humble enough to fully accept God’s undying love can be located within each of his poems. The way in which Herbert conveys this conflict is by utilizing structure as well as metaphysical techniques. This combination of literary devices creates a physical reality that allows Herbert, or the poetic speaker, to “make his feelings immediately present” (245).

I could just go up to them mountains and find a cave.” He continued, sadder now, “ -an’ never have no ketchup- but I won’t care.

To cite another instance, when Candy was talking to George and Lennie about their dream farm, Candy says, “‘You seen what they done to my dog tonight? They says he wasn't no good to himself nor nobody else. When they can me here I wisht somebody'd shoot me. But they won't do nothing like that. I won't have no place to go, an' I can't get no more jobs,’” (p.60) This proves that Candy’s dog is another symbol and he symbolizes Candy himself because this is basically Candy realizing that he's weak and not really important to anyone on the farm; he has no more power than his dog, who was shot.
