Of Mice And Men

Extracts from this essay...

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.

Middle

By contrast, the novel starts with Lennie and George coming in and making their way to work and no one knows what happened in weed. Then they come to the 'brush' were they sleep and George tells Lennie that if he ever gets into trouble then he should come back to the 'brush' and wait for him to come.

Conclusion

Also for the novel you cannot see the set so Steinbeck's has to take some time in describing the setting. I think the film's beginning is better because it is more dramatic and makes me want to continue watching. Also the start doesn't give away too much about what happens in weed. Also the film shows us more about the characters emotions while they are being chased.
