___________________________Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

STUDYWORLD STUDYNOTES

Of Mice and Men

Chapter One:

Lennie and George are hiding after getting off a bus that took them from Weed to Soledad. George is small and quick, dark of face with restless eyes and strong, sharp features. Every part of him is defined. Lennie, who walks behind him, is an enormous man with wide, sloping shoulders. They were forced to leave Weed because Lennie was accused of rape. The need to run away after getting into trouble for various reasons was a very common occurrence. They sit eating and talking about the past and talking about the future. Their hope for the future is to own a ranch of their own with rabbits and chickens, and where they can live off "the fatta the lan'." They discuss their plans for the next day and decide that they are to go to the ranch and George is to do all the talking.

Review:

The novel, "Of Mice and Men" depicts the life of two migrant laborers, George and Lennie, during the Great Depression. The first chapter presents the relationship between these two men and their strong feelings for each other. Here, the reader discovers the main personality differences between George and Lennie. Because Lennie is slow mentally, George acts as Lennie's guardian, taking care of the large child.
