The Plot
  • Of Mice of Men is a novel about two young friends
    looking for a place in the world. The two friends
    are the complete opposite of the other. Lennie,
    is incredibly strong and moronic whereas George
    is small and clever. Although these to men are
    completely different, they stay together, moving
    from farm to ranch and from ranch to farm. They
    do this in order to gain enough money so that,
    maybe one day, they can afford a place of their
    own and live a free life. However, finding the
    road to freedom is harder then it seems -
    Lennies naïve innocence continues to find
    trouble and Georges sagacity may not be able to
    get them out of trouble, and their undying dream
    of freedom may be lost after all.

The Setting
  • Of Mice and Men takes place in Salinas,
    California (also where Steinbeck was born). It
    takes place in the twentieth-century, during the
    Great Depression. The Salinas River has great
    significance in the novel, as Lennie runs away to
    the River to find George and renew his spirits.

Main Character George Milton
  • George is a character in the story that has
    street smarts and continuously saves himself
    and his friend, Lennie, from the dangers that
    surrounds them. He leads Lennie in the world
    which he thinks if full of betrayel and despair.
    Steinbeck writes, If he tangles with you,
    Lennie, were gonna get the can. . . Look,
    Lennie. You try to keep away from him, will you?
    Dont never speak to him. If he comes in here,
    you will move clear to the other side of the
    room (p.29). This quotation reveals how George
    looks after Lennie, and will do everything in his
    power to protect Lennie from the dangers of the
    world.

Main Character Lennie Small
  • Lennie is an unbright character who is a gentle
    man, regardless of his size. He also looks up to
    his friend, George Milton, due to Georges
    cleverness and empathy for Lennie. George is
    telling Lennie about the storys of ranchers and
    how they have no homes, when Lennie interrupts,
    But not us! An why? Because . . . Because I got
    you to look after me, and you got me to look
    after you, and thats why (p.15). This quotation
    demonstrates how Lennie looks up to George and
    admires George and their friendship greatly.

The Theme
  • A major theme in the novel, Of Mice and Men, is
    hope. Throughout the novel, George and Lennie
    kept their hopes alive throughout all the
    troubles they endure. Thus, this book teaches us
    to hope and to hold onto that one ray of sunshine
    that can lead us through the darkest moments.
