Of Mice And Men

Introduction

'Of Mice And Men' Steinbeck's novel is a classic tale of dreamers who come back down to reality. This shows us the huge gap between reality and dream world. The other main theme of this story is friendship and loneliness. The story is set in California near Soledad. The main characters of the story are George, Lennie, Slim, Crooks, Curley, Curley's wife, and Candy. ...read more.

Also the film shows us more about the characters emotions while they are being chased. ...read more.
