Of Mice and Men

Of Mice and Men: Death

-Lennie is a large, strong, lumbering, simple-minded man who is usually unaware of his actions and surroundings. His favorite thing to do is pet soft things.   -George is sharp in every way: his physical features are slim and sharp; he has a sharp mind and wit; he is quick-tempered and sharp when dealing with Lennie.   -Curley's wife is depicted as a manipulator and a temptress throughout Of Mice and Men. She is usually described as Curley's possession and is frequently objectified by the ranch hands. However, right before and after her death, we see a softer woman who was a dreamer, and still retained her innocence.



-Lennie pleads to keep the mouse: “I don't know why I can't keep it. It ain't nobody's mouse. I didn't steal it.   -When Lennie is holding the dead puppy, he looks at it and says, "You ain't so little as mice. I didn't bounce you hard"   -Lennie says, "Don't you go yellin', he said, and he shook her; and her body flopped like a fish. And then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck.

-John Steinbeck won the 1962 Nobel Prize in Literature for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humour and keen social prediction.   -He was born on Febuary 27, 1902 in Salinas, California.   -Steinbeck dropped out of college and worked as a manual laborer before achieving success as a writer. His works often dealt with social and economic issues.   -John Steinbeck was inspired to write Of Mice and Men from his childhood.
