Duel Review #400 - Of Mice and Men

Independent culture newsletter

John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" is a touching tale of the friendship between two men set against the backdrop of the United States during the Depression of the s. Subtle in its characterization, the book addresses the real hopes and dreams of working-class America. Steinbeck's short novel raises the lives of the poor and dispossessed to a higher, symbolic level. Its powerful ending is climactic and shocking to the extreme. But, we also come to an understanding of the tragedy of life. Regardless of the sufferings of those who live it, life goes on. George is a cynical, irresolute man.

Book Review - Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.

Of Mice and Men is a well-known classic, and with valid reason. The book may seem rather boring as many books about the Great Depression may seem but it is actually a great tribute to literature. The book is about a man called George and his childlike, kind-hearted friend Lennie. They find work in a ranch after being on the run from their old job because Lennie got them in deep trouble, and it seems that in this book he may get in trouble again as George may have not been able to help him. The book is great because, not only the great use of description, but the characters because Steinbeck shows how children are, in some cases, better people than adults in the way that they do not judge people because they do not see people or things from that point of view an example being childlike Lennie who has a mental disability though they didn't know that at the time the book is based. The great thing about that is that it shows some of the other characters' feelings about the situations they are being put in and shows how Steinbeck feels about racism and sexism.

Reviews of Of Mice and Men on Broadway. Shapiro, who turns in an impeccably mounted production without a single blemish. The ensemble acting is flawless. The design work is breathtaking. And Steinbeck's Depression-based views on the human connections that are our only hope of survival in desperate times are just as relevant -- even imperative -- for living through our own cruel times.
