STUDYWORLD STUDYNOTES

Of Mice and Men

Of Mice and Men Quick/Fast Summary:

The novel, "Of Mice and Men", is a story of two migrant farmworkers, George and Lennie, who wander the country during the Great Depression. Lennie is mentally retarded and doesn't know his own strength causing frequent problems. George, his friend, is short in stature and appears to have a great deal of common sense. He has assumed the role of guardian and cares for the simplistic and childlike Lennie.

The two men had recently run away from a farm near Weed, where Lennie had been wrongly accused of raping a young woman. They are on their way to a different ranch near Soledad, California where they hope to find work. After they are hired, the two men befriend an aging farmhand with whom they plan to buy a farm. Their dream is shattered when Lennie again gets into trouble and accidentally strangles the flirtatious wife of the ranch owner's son. This incident forces George and Lennie to again run for their lives, but this time it leads to a tragic end. In order to save Lennie from being lynched by Curley and the other men, George performs an act of mercy and shoots Lennie in the back of his head.
